Özet

This article describes the prevalence of antibiotic resistance and predictors of mortality for healthcare-associated (HA) Gram-negative bloodstream infections (GN-BSI). In total, 831 cases of HA GN-BSI from 17 intensive care units in different centres in Turkey were included; the all-cause mortality rate was 44%. Carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae was 38%, and the colistin resistance rate was 6%. Multi-variate analysis showed that age > 70 years [odds ratio (OR) 2, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.22-3.51], central venous catheter use (OR 2.1, 95% CI 1.09-4.07), ventilator- associated pneumonia (OR 1.9, 95% CI 1.1-3.16), carbapenem resistance (OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.11-2.95) and APACHE II score (OR 1.1, 95% CI 1.07-1.13) were significantly associated with mortality.
