Pathogen Distribution, Drug Resistance Risk Factors, and Construction of Risk Prediction Model for Drug-Resistant Bacterial Infection in Hospitalized Patients at the Respiratory Department During the COVID-19 Pandemic
To investigate the distribution and drug resistance of pathogens among hospitalized patients in the respiratory unit during the COVID-19 pandemic, analyze the risk factors of drug resistance, construct a risk prediction model.
K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, A. baumannii, and E. coli were the most abundant bacterial isolates. Antimicrobial resistance among the common isolates was high for most routinely used antimicrobials and carbapenems. COVID-19 did not increase the drug resistance pressure of the main strains. The risk prediction model of drug-resistant bacterial infection is expected to improve the prevention and control of antibacterial-resistant bacterial infection in hospital settings.
