Abstract:

Non-fermenting gram negative bacilli (NFGNB) have emerged as a major cause of nosocomial infection. They can be recovered from the hospital environment, commonly cause device related infections, are often resistant to disinfectant. These NFGNB are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics which are used in critically ill patients. Aims: To know the prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility profile of NFGNB from various clinical specimens. The main objectives of this study is to know the various NFGNB and the prevalence in hospital. And to study the antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) pattern of NFGNB the isolates identified by standard bacteriological methods Vitek-2 system. AST pattern was generated by using Vitek-2 system except Burkholderia cepaciae complex (BCC). BCC AST was done by standard disc diffusion method. A total of 121 NFGNB for 1850 clinical specimens were isolated and identified by its bacteriological methods and Vitek-2 system. AST was performed by Vitek-2 system because method for the AST pattern of their isolated revealed variation to this sensitivity pattern. Thus correct identification of these isolates is of utmost importance for the correct antibiotic treatment. The organisms were identified by standard bacteriological and Vitek-2 system. Out of 1850 clinical specimens NFGNB we found 121 specimens with a prevalence rate. The various isolated in the present study were Pseudomonas species-79, Acinetobacter-27, Burkholderia species-7, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (S. maltophilia)-4, Sphingomonas species-4. The AST pattern of these isolates is being studied.
