BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES During recent decades, there has been a change in the epidemiology of Candida infections, characterized by a progressive shift from a predominance of Candida albicans to non-albicans Candida species. This study was undertaken to analyze the change in the epidemiology of candidaemia and antifungal use at tertiary care hospital in New(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Extensive use of antibiotics has added to the escalation of antibiotic resistance. This study was undertaken to evaluate the association, if any between antibiotic use and resistance in a hospital setting, and also detect the predominant mechanism of antibiotic resistance in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae over a period of(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the prevalent microorganisms and their antimicrobial resistance among intensive care unit patients in a tertiary care centre in New Delhi. METHODS A retrospective study of all consecutive blood cultures from various intensive care unit patients in the hospital during four years (January 2008 to December 2011). Antibiotic consumption(More)
Surveillance of multi drug resistant organisms in a health care setting is a necessity to have optimum treatment out come and less of treatment failures. Once any health care setting gets colonized with multi drug resistant organisms, it is very difficult to decontaminate the environment. On review of our data, for 12 months of year 2008 the prevalence of(More)
With the increase in issue width, bypass control of a processor become more complex. Also, in a processor, operands are read both from register file as well as from bypass. For a multi-port register file, read/write energy is much more than that of single port register file. Both redundant register read/write and bypass control area can be reduced with(More)
PURPOSE Molecular methods which allow rapid detection of tuberculosis as well as drug resistance directly from clinical samples have become the most popular diagnostic methodology with the emergence of multidrug resistant tuberculosis. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the performance of a line probe assay, GenoType MTBDRplus for the rapid(More)
OBJECTIVES Multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii are becoming increasingly important nosocomial pathogens worldwide. To study the evolution of non-fermenters in a tertiary care hospital, we undertook a retrospective 10 year (1999-2008) trend analysis of antimicrobial consumption and resistance in non-fermenters causing(More)
We propose a reduced-port Register File (RF) architecture for reducing RF energy in a VLIW processor. With port reduction, RF ports need to be shared among Function Units (FUs), which may lead to access conflicts, and thus, reduced performance. Our solution includes (i) a carefully designed RF-FU interconnection network that permits port sharing with(More)
Shigellosis is endemic in many resource-poor countries due to feco-oral transmission, resulting in considerable morbidity and mortality. There is rapid emergence of multi-drug resistant (MDR) Shigella spp. resulting in poor reliability of first line antibiotics like quinolones, co-trimoxazole and ampicillin. Ceftriaxone has been used as a reserved(More)
