dc.description.abstractBACKGROUND: We investigated the factors affecting antibiotic resistance in the intensive care unit (ICU)-related hospital-acquired infections caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP-HAI) and the effects of antibiotics used for high-level antibiotic resistance on patient survival. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective study was performed at the adult ICU of Bezmialem Vakif University Hospital. Patients who were followed up between 01 January 2012 and 31 May 2017 were evaluated. Each KP strain was categorized according to resistance patterns and analyzed. The efficiency of antibiotic therapy for highly-resistant KP-HAI was determined by patients’ lifespans. RESULTS: We evaluated 208 patients. With the prior use of carbapenem, antibiotics against resistant Gram-positives, and tigecycline, it was observed that the resistance rate of the infectious agents had a significant increase. As the resistance category increases, a significant decrease was seen in the survival time. We observed that if the treatment combination included trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, the survival time became significantly longer, and tigecycline-carbapenem-colistin and tigecycline-carbapenem combination patients showed significantly shorter survival times. CONCLUSIONS: When the resistance increases, delays will occur in starting suitable and effective antibiotic treatment, with increased sepsis frequency and higher mortality rates. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole can be an efficient alternative to extend survival time in trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole-susceptible KP infections that have extensive drug resistance.en
