Summary of "Influence of bacterial resistance on mortality in intensive care units: A registry study from 2000 to 2013 (IICU Study)."

Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a daily concern in intensive care units. However, few data are available concerning the clinical consequences of in vitro defined resistance. This study aimed to compare the mortality of patients with nosocomial infections according to bacterial resistance profiles.
