There are several "non-standardized" test methodologies for performing antimicrobial susceptibility tests on clinical isolates of fastidious aerobic organisms. Critical to the interpretation of a susceptibility test (or any clinical laboratory test) is correlation of the results with the clinical status of the patient. If previous extensive studies have not been performed for a given antimicrobial-organism combination using a specific method, the results must be interpreted with discretion… CONTINUE READING
