Abstract:

Escherichia coli, a gram negative bacillus, are present as a normal flora in human intestine. It is present in hospital environment and a common cause of nosocomial infection. In recent years it has shown resistance to various groups of antibiotics. Specimens like Urine, Pus, ET secretion; Sputum, etc were processed in Clinical Microbiology Laboratory for isolation and identification of E. coli. After identification E. coli was processed for Antibiotic Sensitivity testing using Kirby Bauer method. A total of 1237 samples had E. coli isolated. Out of 1237 E. coli isolated 540 (43.65%) were isolated from female patients while 697 (56.35%) were from male patients. Isolation was highest from Urine (50.69%) followed by Pus (36.14%) sample. Over all sensitivity of E. coli was as follow – Imipenam (64.63%), Amikacin (61.85%), Gentamicin (52.75%), Cotrimoxazole (37.90%), Cefepime (27.03%), Ciprofloxacin (26.62%), Cefotaxime (21.50%), Cefuroxime (12.20%), Cefoxitin (12.50%), Amoxicillin (10.54%), and Ceftazidime (4.57%). Every hospital needs to prepare antibiogram not only according to organisms but also according to clinical specimens so that empirical therapy can be started before culture and sensitivity investigation.
