CARVAJAL YANEZ, Noelia; NOE QUIROZ, Patricia; ILLANEZ, Daniel  y  EROSTEGUI REVILLA, Carlos. Epidemiology and Antimicrobial Sensitivity of Urinary Tract Infections in Patients of The Hospital Viedma January 2008-August 2009. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.1, pp.11-13. ISSN 1817-7433.

We conducted an evaluation of urinary tract infections.The objective was to determine the epidemiological characteristics and antimicrobial sensitivity of patients aged 15 diagnosed with urinary tract infections in the Clinical Hospital Viedma between the period January 2008 August 2009, to study take a sample of 71 patients (obtained STATS program), reviewed medical records and reports of urine culturessusceptibility testing and tabulation of data was performed using the SPSS. 17 ®. Analyzing the results we see that the most common causative agent was Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), the most affected sex was female and aged 4060 years, and the patients of urban origin the most frequent. Reports of susceptibility show that most strains of E. Coli are resistant to firstgeneration quinolones, ß lactams and sulfonamides, With this study we conclude that the vast majority of urinary tract infections are caused by E. Coli, women being more affected in urban areas and the treatment for these should be carefully chosen and to the strains of E. coli samples commonly used antimicrobial resistance.
