Objective: Intensive care units are a hospital’s section where hospital infections and resistant microorganisms are most commonly seen. In this study it was aimed to determine the microorganisms which were isolated from various clinical specimens of the patients in intensive care units for a year and antibiotic susceptibility of the microorganisms. Materials and Methods: MALDI TOF MS and BD Phoenix system were used for the identification of bacteria, antibiotic sensitivities were evaluated by… Expand

Of particular concern is the increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance to β-lactam antibiotics among Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii and, recently, among pathogens of the Enterobacteriaceae family. Expand
True bacteremias caused by coagulase negative Staphylococcus are difficult to distinguish from blood culture contaminants
It is demonstrated that the decision about the significance of positive blood culture finding made by the clinician may differ from that indicated by accepted criteria for BSI, and simple clinical findings such as heart rate, body temperature, or systolic blood pressure may not distinguish a culture contaminant from true infections.

Multiresistant Acinetobacter baumannii infections: epidemiology and management
The optimal treatment for multidrug-resistant A. baumannii nosocomial infections has not been established and carbapenems are the mainstay of treatment in susceptible isolates and tigecycline and colistin retain good in-vitro activity and in many cases represent the only therapeutic options. Expand
Vancomycin resistant enterococci healthcare associated infections.
Control measures aimed at reducing the incidence of VRE colonization and infection in healthcare settings should include: hand washing with an antiseptic or a waterless antisingptic agent, routine screening for vancomycin resistance among clinical isolates, rectal surveillance cultures, contact isolation for patients with VRE and antimicrobial stewardship.

Annual trends in antibiotic resistance of nosocomial Acinetobacter baumannii strains and the effect of synergistic antibiotic combinations.
Due to the effectiveness of sulbactams to Acinetobacter, ampicillin/sulbactam-tobramycin combination is recommended as the first line of choice. Expand
International study of the prevalence and outcomes of infection in intensive care units.
In this large cohort, infection was independently associated with an increased risk of hospital death and risk of infection increases with duration of ICU stay. Expand
