BACKGROUND The prevalence of resistance to imipenem and ceftazidime among Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates is increasing worldwide. OBJECTIVE Risk factors for nosocomial recovery (defined as the finding of culture-positive isolates after hospital admission) of imipenem-resistant P. aeruginosa (IRPA) and ceftazidime-resistant P. aeruginosa (CRPA) were determined. DESIGN Two separate case-control studies were conducted. Control subjects were matched to case patients (ratio, 2:1) on the basis… CONTINUE READING
