Relationship between demographic characteristics and community-acquired urinary tract infection
AbstractTo investigate the effect of age, sex and marital status on the etiology of community-acquired urinary tract infection and the antimicrobial resistance of uropathogens, urine specimens collected from 270 outpatients were analysed and 121 significant monomicrobial cultures obtained. The microorganisms were identified and their susceptibility to 14 selected antimicrobial agents was determined. These results were then related to the age, sex and marital status of the patients. This study concludes that understanding the effect of the different factors on community-acquired urinary tract infections and their antimicrobial resistance will aid the proper management of this disease

Antibiotic resistance trends in paediatric community-acquired first urinary tract infections in the United Arab Emirates Narchi, H.; Al Hamdani, M.A.M. (2010)We analysed the trend of antibiotic resistance of community-acquired uropathogens over a 4-year period in a cohort of children with a first episode of culture-proven urinary tract infection presenting to the department of paediatrics at a large general secondary care hospital in the United Arab Emirates. Comparisons were made between 2 time periods: 2003-04 versus 2005-06 for 145 children aged 2 months to 12 years of age. Although some changes in resistance were observed for some antibiotics between the 2 time periods, the differences were not ...
Shariatzadeh, M.R.; Marrie, T.J. (2009)This prospective study was conducted in 6 hospitals in Edmonton, Canada to determine the factors associated with obtaining sputum for culture and the effect of sputum culture on the management of patients with community-acquired pneumonia [CAP]. Participants were 1362 adults who were hospitalized with CAP. Sputum was obtained from 539 [39.6%] patients, of which 507 [94.1%] were good quality, acceptable for culture; 171 [33.7%] of these had a positive sputum culture.Levofloxacin, cefuroxime and azithromycin were the most common antibiotics prescribed ...
