Antibiotics / Antimicrobial Use and Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance is the ability of microorganisms to withstand the effects of drugs - i.e., microorganisms are not killed and their growth has not been arrested. Although some people are more at risk than others, no one can completely avoid the risk of antibiotic-resistant infections. Microorganisms resistant to antibiotics are difficult to treat, which requires expensive and sometimes toxic replacements. Nosocomial infections are often caused by antibiotic-resistant organisms. When the transmission of these organisms in the context of health care is on-going, specific control measures are necessary. At present many microorganisms have developed resistant to various antimicrobial agents and in some case almost all agents. Resistant bacteria can cause increased morbidity and mortality, particularly in patients with significant underlying disease or who are immunocompromised. Antimicrobial resistance is a problem in the community and health care settings, but in hospitals, transmission of bacteria is amplified because of the very sensitive population.
