Description
Cumulative antibiograms provide local susceptibility and resistance information to aid clinicians in making informed empiric therapeutic choices while waiting for susceptibility results of a patient’s isolate. Additionally, antibiograms can identify trends in emerging resistance patterns, which might otherwise go unnoticed. Many laboratories rely on the software provided with their commercial antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) systems to prepare their routine cumulative antibiogram. This program will discuss ways to optimize use of features provided with commercial AST systems in preparing antibiograms. It will also explore additional ways the susceptibility result database can be used, such as helping to guide institutional protocols for empiric therapy.

Objectives
At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss use of commercial antimicrobial susceptibility test systems for preparation of routine cumulative antibiograms
  • Describe additional ways in which the susceptibility result database can be used beyond preparation of a routine cumulative antibiogram
