Abstract:

Determination of the susceptibility profile of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains by detecting their anti - microbial resistance patterns is necessary with regards to a current empirical treatment in bloodstream infections. The aim of this study was to detect the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of P.aeruginosa strains isolated from blood cultures between august 2015 to  august2016 at the Narayana Hospital and Medical College Nellore AP .Blood cultures were processed by automatized BACT/Alert 3Dsystem.P.aeroginosa strains were identified by conventional methods Antimicrobial susceptibility tests were performed by Kirby-Bauer disc  diffusion  method in accordance with the recommendations of Clinical and Laboratory Standards  Institute (CLSI).One twenty six P .aeruginosa strains were isolated during the study period .comprises 96male(76.19%) and 30 female (23.81%)between the age group less than 10 to more than 60year. Antimicrobial resistance pattern of the P. aeruginosa strains isolated  from blood cultures were found . High resistance- Amoxicillin 102(80.95%) Ticarcilline  plus clavulanic acid 94(74.60%), Cefepime 78(61.90%) cefexime 76(60.32%) dorepenenum 70 (55.56%) polymixin –B 68(53.9%). High sensitivity with ciprofloxacin 108(85.7%) pipercillin and tazobactum102 (80.95%) oflaxacillin 96 (76.19%), imepenem 94 (74.60%), tigycyclin 88 (69.84%) co-trimaxazole 88 (69.84%).
