Abstract:

Pseudomonas aeruginosa are associated with large number of identified infections. Rise in multidrug resistance among clinical isolates. A total of 342 specimens were collected from swabs (pus, blood, burn, exudate, tip and scalp specimen) and obtained during 12 months (January 2017- December 2017). The Majority of P. aeruginosa were isolated from swab specimens accounted217 (99%). The male to female were 241 (70%) to 101 (30%) respectively. P. aeurginosa showed a high susceptibility rate toward colistin, followed by ciprofloxacin while the high resistant rate toward Augmentin followed by Doxacillin. No statistically significant effect on the killing by drugs and the age, while had statistically significant effect on the pseudomonas infection and the gender. Benghazi, the highest area recorded the isolated pseudomonas (56%) followed by Albayda 61(18%). The antimicrobial agents are losing their efficiency because of the extent of resistant organisms due to unselective use of antibiotics, patient nonconformity and unhealthy condition.
