Abstract:

Central venous line catheter tip related infections are common in hospital settings. In our study our aim is to find to out the most common pathogen associated with central venous line catheter tip infections and checking its sensitivity pattern. We have taken 84 samples of tip of central venous line catheter tip for culture and sensitivity. Out of 84 samples, 45 reported no growth and 37 samples showed different growth pattern. As a result of our study we have seen the Staphylococcus aureus is the most common organism isolated, From its sensitivity report we have also seen presence of Methicillin resistant Staphyloccus aureus. Next most common organism isolated was Klebsiella followed by Enterococcus.
