Abstract:
Objective: to know the range of bacterial resistance in pathogens of epidemiological importance isolated from urine samples, secretion of surgical wound and blood culture in the Instituto Nacional de Perinatología. Methods: Retrospective study, with review of all the antibiograms obtained from isolates of microorganisms from: urine, surgical wound secretion and blood culture of obstetric patients (pregnancy and puerperium) in the period from January 2016 to June 2019 at the Instituto Nacional de Perinatología. Results: A total of 3,322 microorganisms were isolated, 2,882 from urine sample, 270 from surgical wound secretion and 170 from blood cultures. The most frequent microorganism isolated was Escherichia Coli (2,223 isolates), 2,042 from urine samples, 98 from surgical wound secretion and 83 from blood cultures. Conclusions: the use of the results of antimicrobial susceptibility of the isolated microorganisms allowed to produce record from 2 years of pharmacological resistance for most of the species of epidemiological importance, same results that will allow to initiate an empirical management under a sustenance of scientific evidence.
