Isolation and Identification of Multi-Drug Resistant “Pseudomonas Aeruginosa” from Burn Wound Infection Iraq
Keywords:Burn, Wound , Antibiotic, Multidrug resistant, P. aeruginosa.
P. aeruginosa” is considered as ubiquitous bacteria that can rapidly obtain resistance against various wide
spectrum antibiotics It can rapidly obtain resistance against various wide spectrum antibiotics which lead
to problematic conditions.. In current study, 120 samples were collected from 120 patients suffering from
contaminated burns. The study was conducted after obtaining ethical approvals from the ethics committee
in the Department of Biology, College of Science, University of Baghdad as well after obtaining the patients
’consent. Samples are collected from patients after they have stopped using antibiotics for 48 hours. After
the swabs had been cultured on different media, conventional biochemical tests to identify bacterial isolates
and antimicrobial sensitivity to the most common antibiotics were performed by viteck 2 compact .The
results showed that the highest percentage of bacterial species was of P. aeruginosa was 17.78%. Isolation
No. 7 was the most resistant of the diagnosed isolates . The lowest Percentage other bacterial species
example Proteus , Staphylococcus , Klebsiella .
