  • a Sentinel agents used for the definition of MDR included amikacin (AMK), aztreonam (ATM), cefepime (FEP), ceftazidime (CAZ), ciprofloxacin (CIP), colistin, imipenem (IMI), and piperacillin-tazobactam (P/T). The MDR phenotypes listed accounted for 68.7% (181/264) of all MDR phenotypes identified; colistin resistance was not observed among the most common MDR phenotypes identified. Agents shown in the table tested as nonsusceptible; the other sentinel agents tested as susceptible. Agents tested but not included in the list of sentinel agents may have tested as susceptible or nonsusceptible.

  • b MDR isolates accounted for 29.5% (264/896) of all isolates of P. aeruginosa.
