ASSESSMENT OF ANTIBIOTIC SENSITIVITY K.pneumania IN COVID-19 PATIENTS
K.pneumaniae are typical opportunistic pathogens that cause the infectious process in mostly immunocompromised patients. In a hospital setting, opportunistic microorganisms can be found in ventilation and humidification systems, including ventilators. Patients with COVID-19 who are on mechanical ventilation are mainly at increased risk for the development of nosocomial infections. At the same time, opportunistic microorganisms are the most often etiological agent. Among them, K.pneumaniae, A.baumanni, P. aeruginosa and other microorganisms are often found. Klebsiella are often antibiotic resistant. They, with the ability to produce extended spectrum beta-lactamases, are resistant to many beta-lactam antibiotics, except carbapenems. Therefore, the assessment of antibiotic sensitivity of K.pneumaniae in patients with COVID-19 is an urgent problem.
