OBJECTIVE To investigate the distribution and the antimicrobial resistance of pathogens in lower respiratory tract infection from 2006 to 2010. METHODS The sputum specimens from inpatients with lower respiratory tract infection in the First Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University during the past five years were cultured and identified; the antimicrobial resistance was analyzed by the software WHONET 5.4. RESULTS A total of 12,191 isolates were characterized in sputum samples: 73.5… CONTINUE READING
