Antibiograms: Transforming data into knowledge

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Summary antibiograms are used to aid in the selection of empiric therapy and to monitor for shifts in antimicrobial resistance patterns. The methods used to assemble and present these data are not standardized and may not provide the most useful clinical information. This article describes different ways of analyzing and reporting data in summary antibiograms that provide useful information for treatment and prevention of infectious diseases.
