Currently a stable resistance situation is observed for this microorganism, which is intrinsically resistant to numerous antibiotics.
Infections with Acinetobacter spp. are mainly observed in hospital environments, particularly in intensive care units and in already weakened patients. These microorganisms can cause respiratory, urinary tract and wound infections as well as septicaemia and meningitis. The resistance situation is stable in Switzerland since 10 years. In contrast to other European countries an increase in Carbapanem resistance has not been observed.

For this analysis invasive isolates (blood and cerebrospinal fluid) tested against the corresponding antibiotic (category) were considered only. If multiple antibiotics within the same antibiotic category were tested, the most resistant result was selected. In case of multiple isolates, the first isolate per patient, microorganism and calendar year was included only. Results are reported as delivered by laboratories. Statistics may be influenced by the changing number of laboratories participating. Data are provided for surveillance purposes and are not intended to be used for therapeutic decisions solely.
