The use of King A and King B media for the faster diagnosis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is introduced in the Microbiology Laboratory of Centro Habana Pediatric Teaching Hospital. The appropriate use of these media allows to classify as Pseudomonas aeruginosa 77.2% of the Pseudomonas sp. strains studied, which represent 95.2% of the total of strains identified(More)
The microbiologic aspects of the bacteriemia were prospectively studied in patients hospitalized in a pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Thirty six episodes of bacteriemia were detected in 29 patients. Secondary bacteriemia prevailed on the primary ones. The most frequent infectious foci associated with bacteriemia were the infections of respiratory tract,(More)
A study was made on 198 Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains isolated at a pediatric intensive care unit from January to August 1988, using pyocin typing and antibiotic typing as markers. The most frequent circulating pyocin types were 31.83 and atypical 23578. The germ showed high resistance in vitro to the antimicrobial drugs used and the resistance patterns(More)
A prospective study was carried out in order to assess nosocomial bacteremia in the Intensive Care Unit of the Centrohabana Teaching Pediatric Hospital, from January to May 1988. 66.7% of the bacteremia episodes diagnosed were of a nosocomial origin, mostly secondary. Nosocomial bacteremia rate was 15.5 per 100 admissions, with predominance in the age group(More)
A study is made of non-fermenting gram-negative bacterial strains isolated at the Microbiology Lab, "Centro Habana" Pediatric Teaching Hospital. The strains studied come from various types of samples with prevalence of exudates and smears. A definite biotyping of 100% of strains is made. 90.0% are classified within the genus Pseudomonas. In addition,(More)
The authors worked with 2,273 strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from clinical samples processed at the Microbiology laboratory of Centro Habana Pediatric Teaching Hospital in the period ranging from June 1985 to December 1986. All strains underwent the bacterial sensitivity test against antibiotics by Bauer-Kirby technique. Fourty-eight strains were(More)
