Abstract

Objective: This study aimed to provide a theoretical basis for improving the clinician's awareness of carbapenem-sensitive A. baumannii, thus preventing and controlling its infections.

Methods: In this retrospective study, 110 cases of Acinetobacter baumannii infection were analyzed, including 46 and 64 cases of carbapenem-resistant and -sensitive infections, respectively to investigate its drug resistance in children and its risk factors for infection.

Results: The infection resistance analysis and risk factors investigation showed that carbapenem-resistant A. baumannii infection occurred more in ICU.

Conclusion: Greater the varieties of antibiotics used, higher the risk of infection. Moreover, children had worse prognosis in the case of carbapenem-sensitive A. baumannii infection. 

Keywords
