ABSTRACT

Antibiotic sensitivity is the susceptibility of bacteria to a specific antibiotic. Antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) is carried out to determine the sensitivity of an antibiotic to a particular microorganism. Antimicrobial susceptibilities may vary depending on the geography as well as the host-related factors. The aim of this study is to evaluate the prevalence of bacterial infection in a tertiary care hospital and also to ascertain the antibiotic sensitivity of commonly encountered organisms. Results indicated that E.coli and Klebsiella are the commonest pathogens found in our hospital. The sensitivity of these bacteria towards different antibiotics are found to be E.coli 30.7% and Klebsiella 69.2% for Gentamicin, E.coli 50% and Klebsiella 50% for Imipenem, E.coli 50% and Klebsiella 50% for Cefotaxime, E.coli 33.3% and Klebsiella 66.7% for Ceftazidime, E.coli 40% and Klebsiella 60% for Meropenem. The data from our study indicated that Klebsiella has shown more sensitivity to Gentamicin while E.Coli is found to be more sensitivity to both Imipenem and Cefotaxime. Care for pediatric patients could be improved with use of a pediatric-specific antibiogram.

Keywords: Antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST), E.Coli, Klebsiella.
