DELIA IOANA HORHAT, DELIA MUNTEAN, SMARANDA ARGHIRESCU, SIMONA CERBU, DANIELA IACOB, FLORIN GEORGE HORHAT RESISTANCE TO ANTI-INFECTIOUS CHEMOTHERAPIES: RISK FACTORS FOR EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT STRAINS IN HOSPITALIZED PATIENTS
This retrospective study was conducted between January 2016 and March 2016 in the Pius Brînzeu County Emergency Clinical Hospital of Timi’oara. Data were collected from the electronic database of the laboratory and the hospital’s electronic medical records. The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors for extensively drug-resistant (XDR) bacteria. The results obtained suggest that the catheterization, endotracheal intubation and previous antibiotic therapy or the prolonged hospitalization may be risk factors for the acquisition of XDR strains.
