Detection of the Some Dominant Aerobic Microorganisms in Burn Injury and Testing their Susceptibility for Different Antibiotics in Najaf
Keywords:Burn injury, Burn infection, Antibiotics
Burn injury and wound is a pig problem that assists the pathogens to grow and cause infection. 149 burn
injury swabs were taken from different site of the patients’ body ages (11-53 years old). All samples were
tested to isolate the sigificant microorganisms that found in burn injury. Antibiotics test was performed by
using disc diffusion way that stated by Kirby-Baucer. Results appeared that the most frequent pathogen in
burn injury was Pseudomonas aeruginosa 33(22.14%) and followed by E.coli 31(20.8%), Staphylococcus
aureus 28(18.79%), Proteus vulgaris 26(17.48%), Coagulase-negative Staphylococci 12(8.05%), Proteus
mirabilis 10(6.71%), Klebsiella pneumonia 5(3.35%) and Candida spp. 4(2.68%) respectively. Antibiotic
test showed that Staphylococcus aureus was a high resistance against Gentamycin and ciprofloxacin, but
it was sensitive to Vancomycin and Imipenem. Coagulase negative Staphylococci showed a resistance
to Gentamicin, Ciprofloxacin and Ceftazidime, but it was sensitive to Amikacin, Oxacillin, Cefotaxim,
Vancomycin, Imipenem and Cefepime. P. aeruginosa showed resistance against Cefotaxime, Aztreonam,
Gentamicin and Ceftazidime. Whlist it showed a high sensitivity against Imipenem, Cefepime and
Tobramycin. E.coli showed a high resistance against Ceftriaxone, Ciprofloxacin and Cephalothin. whilst
it showed a high sensitivity against Ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, Imipenem, Cefepime and Tobramycin.
Proteus vulgaris showed a high resistance against Ceftriaxone, Ceftazidime, Amikacin, Cephalothin and
Gentamicin. Whilst it showed a high sensitivity against Cefotaxime, Aztreonam, Ticarcillin/clavulanic
acid and Imipenem. Proteus mirabilis showed resistance against Amikacin, Ciprofloxacin, Ceftriaxone,
Gentamicin and Cephalothin. Whilst it showed a high sensitivity against Ceftazidime, Cefotaxime,
Aztreonam, Ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, Imipenem, Cefepime and Tobramycin. Klebsiella pneumonia
showed resistance against Ciprofloxacin, Ceftazidime, Cefotaxime and Aztreonam. whilst it showed a high
sensitivity against Ceftriaxone, Amikacin, Gentamicin, Cephalothin, Ticarcillin/clavulanic acid, Imipenem,
Cefepime and Tobramycin. The current study was aimed to determine the most frequent pathogens in burn
injury and test their antibiotics susceptibility in hospitalize patients in Najaf city.
