Abstract:

The rapid increase of drug resistance in clinical isolates of this opportunistic human pathogen is of worldwide concern.  Unfortunately, Pseudomonas aeruginosa demonstrates resistance to multiple antibiotics, thereby jeopardizing the selection of appropriate treatment. The current study was undertaken to know the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from our hospital. The current study was undertaken in the department of microbiology, Shri B M Patil medical college, Viayapur, from January 2015 to July 2015.Samples which showed the growth of P.A were included in the study. Samples which did not show the Growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were not included in the study. A total of 60 Pseudomonas aeruginosa were isolated during the study period. Majority of the isolates (50%) were from pus sample. Majority of the isolates (75%) were from male patients. Majority of the isolates (75%) were from male patients. In our study resistance was least against Piperacillin + Tazobactum (12%), followed by amikacin (22%), imipenem (25%), gentamicin (33%). Resistance rate was highest among ofloxacin (75%), Carbenicillin (63%), Cefaperazone+Sulbactum (62%). To conclude Pseudomonas aeruginosa is emerging as one of the most common drug resistant organism therefore care should be taken while prescribing antibiotic, so that misuse or overuse is prevented and the treatment should be started only after the sensitivity of the isolates is carried out.
