Abstract:

Non fermentors are important noscomial pathogens causing opportunistic infections in immunocompromised patients. They cause infections with patients having humidifiers, ventilators and catheter devices especially in medical intensive care units. To isolate identify in which age group, sex, risk factors of non fermentative gram negative bacteria The study was performed from September 2018 to February 2019 for a period of 6 months in Department of Microbiology& Medical Intensive Care Units. The samples were inoculated on Blood agar, Mac Conkey agar and incubated at 37℃ for overnight. Non-lactose fermentation was noted on MacConkey agar. The isolates were identified and Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was done by using GN card and AST N281 respectively by using Vitek 2 compact (Biomerieux). A total of 3143 clinical samples were obtained from medical intensive care units. 100 NFGNB were isolated with prevalence of 3.18. Males are more predominant than females. The most common age group in which non fermenters were isolated is 61-70 years followed by 51-60 years. Among the Acinetobacter baumanii (n=40) maximum sensitivity is seen in colistin followed by tigecycline. And among Pseudomonas aeruginosa (n=38) maximum sensitivity is for colistin and gentamycin.
