Extended‐spectrum β‐lactamases (ESBLs) are extremely broad spectrum β‐lactamase enzymes found in a variety of Enterobacteriaceae. Most strains producing these β‐lactamases are Klebsiella pneumoniae, other Klebsiella species (i.e., K. oxytoca), and Escherichia coli. When producing these enzymes, organisms become highly effective at inactivating various β‐lactam antibiotics. In addition, ESBL‐producing bacteria are frequently resistant to many classes of antibiotics, resulting in difficult‐to… Expand
