Antimicrobial resistance prevalence, rates of hospitalization with septicemia and rates of mortality with sepsis in adults in different US states.
Researchers studied the relation between the prevalence of resistance to various antibiotics in different bacteria and rates of sepsis-related outcomes. They found that, among the different combinations of antibiotics/bacteria, prevalence of resistance to fluoroquinolones in E. coli had the strongest association with septicemia hospitalization rates for individuals aged over 50 years, and with sepsis mortality rates for individuals aged 18-84 years. They also found a number of positive correlations between prevalence of resistance for different combinations of antibiotics/bacteria and septicemia hospitalization/sepsis mortality rates in adults.
