Antibiotics - Is there a Need for Antibiogram?

Wahengbam PS Al Waheed, Raj Kumar.

Abstract
Antibiotic resistance is a global problem; the solutions are entirely local issue. The anti-microbiological data revealed an alarming increase in the incidence of antibiotic resistant, Methicillin-resistant Staph.aureus and other resistant bacteria in many upgraded and Specialty Hospital in many developing countries. The disturbing fact has been a major driver for framing antibiotic policy to improve the hospital infection control. Education about the specific use of antibiotics both in hospitals and in community is vital if we are to tackle resistance to antibiotics effectively. Increase in monitoring, surveillance and imparting knowledge of infection control principles and practices will be able to bring down the rate of antibiotics resistance. Microbial isolates and antimicrobial susceptibility testing pattern were studied in cumulative samples from ICU (n=1773), Surgery ward (n=1446), Medicine ward (n=1092), Cardiac centre (n=719), Collection centre (n=1522) from Super speciality hospital in developing country. Pus samples (n=5544), Urine samples (n=3204) Respiratory samples (n=1297) and Blood samples (n=903) were analyzed and results of antimicrobial susceptibility testing pattern were worked out. The antibiogram should be monitored by a control unit under strict supervision of Experts.

Key words: Antibiogram, Antibiotics
