In present study, aim was to determine the bacteriologicalprofile in Neonatal Sepsis and antimicrobial sensitivity of the organisms in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of Tertiary care Hospital and study included records of all cases of clinically suspected septicemia in neonates admitted to the NICU from September 2015 to August 2016 risk of sepsis in birth asphyxia and gestational age was about 2 times higher as compared value was significant at 0.05 levels. Out of the total 95 cases having perinatal fever (n = 95, 94%), 34 (34%) were culture positive and 61 (60%) were culture negative, ve) (23%) and Staphylococcus aureus (Gm + ve) (15.3%) were the most common organisms causing neonatal sepsis in our settings. Ampicillin and Gentamicin for 1st Tazobactam for 2nd line, Meropenum and Vancomycin for

Aims & Objectives: To study the bacteriologicalprofile of urinary tract infection in diabetic patients. To study the antibiotic sensitivity profile of the isolates from the urine culture of diabetic patients. Materials & Methods: A hospital based study was carried out in 100 patients who were attending outpatient department or admitted in the department of medicine MMIMSR Mullana, Ambala. The study included cases of diabetes with above age of 18 years and clinically suspected cases of UTI.
This is to certify that this dissertation titled “BACTERIOLOGICALPROFILE AND THEIR SENSITIVITY PATTERN IN LEUKEMIC PATIENTS” submitted by DR.V.SANKAR to the faculty of Pediatrics, The Tamilnadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University, Chennai in partial fulfillment of the requirement for the award of MD Degree Branch VII Pediatrics, is a bonafide research work carried out by him under our direct supervision and guidance.
Very few studies in the literature have specifically studied bacteriological ISO, especially in orthopedic surgery. It is usually either a special study of prosthetic joint infections or investigation epidemiological research on nosocomial infections. Our work fits among the studies that provide a broad idea about the bacteriologicalprofile of the ISO any indication confused. However, the lack of control population did not identify risk factors for surgical site infection. The bacterial flora isolated in our series showed some particularities. This series showed that the bacterial flora of the ISO observed were roughly comparable to that reported in the literature (Table 6).

Background: Early onset bacterial sepsis remains a major cause of neonatal morbidity and death. The choice of antibiotic for an infant with sepsis depends on the predominant bacterial pathogens and the antibiotic susceptibility profiles for the microorganisms causing disease in a particular geographic region. The purpose of this study was to analyze the bacteriologicalprofile and antibiotic sensitivity pattern of neonatal septicemia in our neonatal unit. Methods: A descriptive cross sectional study carried was out at the NICU of a tertiary level hospital in South India for a period of one year.
World Health Organization has listed antibiotic resistance as a growing global problem which poses a major threat to health. 1 Higher incidence of COM is common in cases due to the malnutrition, overcrowding and poor hygiene and hence is more commonly seen to occur in communities from poor socio-economic standards. 2 Both gram positive and gram negative organisms contribute to the bacteriologicalprofile of COM infection. Proper antibiotic profile is essential for timely treatment as also to reduce the menace of antibiotic resistance. This study was therefore undertaken to define the organism profile and their resistance pattern to commonly administered antibiotics in cases of COM in a select cohort in the NCR of India.
It usually presents after 72 hours of age. The infection in LOS is either hospital-acquired or community-acquired. Neonates usually presents with septicemia, pneumonia or meningitis. The risk factors for nosocomial sepsis include low birth weight, prematurity, admission in intensive care unit, mechanical ventilation, invasive procedures and central lines, administration of parental fluids and use of stock solutions. Factors that increase the risk of community acquired LOS include poor hygiene, poor cord care, and bottle feeding and prelacteal feeds. This study was aimed to assess the clinical spectrum, bacteriologicalprofile, antibiotic sensitivity pattern and mortality due to neonatal septicemia in neonates admitted in neonatal units attached to the SMS Medical College, Jaipur.
Background: Neonatal septicemia still a major cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Blood culture is the main stay in the diagnosis of septicemia. Emergence of drug resistant bacterial strains is a major problem in the management of sepsis. Aim of present study is to determine bacteriologicalprofile and antibiotic resistance in neonatal sepsis.
Background: In the newborns one of the leading causes of deaths and disease is septicemia. Classical clinical features are absent which poses a challenge for early diagnosis. Hence to prevent the deaths and diseases it is essential to go for early diagnosis and early treatment. Objective of this study pattern of neonatal infections, socio-demographic correlates; clinical manifestations and bacteriologicalprofile of neonatal infections.
Interventions to prevent pneumonia in the ICU should combine multiple measures targeting the invasive devices, microorganisms, and protection of the patient. VAP is particularly common in patients with ARDS, after tracheotomy, in patients with COPD, and in injured and burned patients. It is the most common cause of hospital acquired infection and death among patients admitted in ICU. So we aimed to study the incidence of VAP, their microbiological profile in the intensive care unit of Kamineni Hospitals. A Prospective study conducted on 300 randomly selected Patients after Institutional Ethics Committee clearance has been taken. The diagnosis of VAP was established on the basis of Clinical Pulmonary Infection Score. A MiniBAL sample was collected Culture was done on blood agar and Mac Conkey agar 97 patients developed VAP. Results were tabulated Incidence of VAP was found to be 32.3 %, the organisms isolated in VAP patients are Acinetobacter- 65.9%, Klebsiella pneumoniae - 15.46%, E.coli - 7.21%, Pseudomonas - 6.18%. Conclusion: Clinicians must focus on eliminating or minimizing the incidence of VAP through preventive techniques. The causes of VAP and the likelihood of infection by an antibiotic-resistant strain can be predicted based on the patient characteristics, the duration of hospitalization, the duration of mechanical ventilation, prior exposure to antibiotic therapy,
