TO DETERMINE THE ANTIBIOTIC SUSCEPTIBILITY PATTERNS IN VAP PATHOGENS IN ICU PATIENTS AT TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL ATTACHED TO S. P. MEDICAL COLLEGE, BIKANER
Keywords:VAP, MDR, ICU
Background: The present study aimed to find out the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of the organisms isolated from cases of VAP
Methods: This study was carried out in the Department of Microbiology, by taking samples from clinically suspected cases of VAP from different ICU( Medical, Surgical, Neonatal and Pediatric ICU) at tertiary care hospital attached to S. P. Medical College, Bikaner.
Results: Out of 79 GNB, 63 (79.74%) isolates were found to be MDR, including 10 (66.67%)) isolates of MDR Pseudomonas.
Conclusion: Adherence to infection control protocols and short term use of invasive devices and judicious use of antibiotics are also important in preventing VAP caused by these MDR pathogens
