Prevalence of Carbapenem Resistant Enterobactericeae (CRE) in a Tertiary Care Hospital

Dr. Parismita Sahoo

Abstract: Enterobacteriaceae family is an important cause of urinary tract infections (UTIs), bloodstream infections, hospital acquired pneumonias. The prevalence of ESBLs producing Enterobacteriaceae made carbapenem a preferred drug in the treatment of MDR Enterobacteriaceae. But indiscriminate use of carbapenem to tackle the ESBL producing organism leads to carbapenem resistance in healthcare and community settings. Identifying carbapenem resistant organisms and implementing measures to prevent the spread is need of the hour.
