Study the Antimicrobial Drug Resistance to some Microbes Isolates from Skin and Blood in Burn Patients


A total of (170) Skin swabs were taken after 72 and 144 hours of burn injury and (45) blood specimens for culture from (85) patients with burn size (10-90%). This study showed that cases of infection are increased with the increasing of stay period in Hospital and burn size. It has been found that Gram negative bacteria are more frequent than Gram positive type and yeast. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most frequent species among microbial isolates. Besides, it has been shown through this study that the antibiotics: Ciprofloxacin, Amikacin, Norfloxacin, and Imipenem are the most influential on Gram negative bacterial isolates and Chloramphenicol, Vangomycin and Nitrofurantion on Gram positive bacterial isolates. Furthermore, Amphotericin B and Clotrimazole on yeast.
