Abstract
Advances in antimicrobial treatment in the course of recent many years', pneumonia and other respiratory lot contaminations stay a significant reason for bleakness and mortality. To decide the predominant microorganisms answerable for upper and lower respiratory lot diseases in our nearby organization and the populace profiles in which these life forms happen. This was a review examination of sputum tests shipped off the Novus Path Labs, India and Nepal and its Associates Hospitals, over a time of a year from 2017-2018. Sputum tests were gram stained upon receipt in the research center and surveyed with the Barttlet score. Data analysis was done with EPI INFO version 3.5.1. The mean age of the 155 patients was 36.2+/-18.2 ranging from 4 to 92 years. The predominant organism was Streptococcus pneumonia [n = 69 (44.5%)]. Age < 65 was a significant risk for Streptococcus pneumoniae infection (p= 0.00, O.R=3.72, CI=1.00- 13.77, X2=4.34). It was noted that there was a higher likelihood of Streptococcus pneumoniae infections with decreasing age (p=0.00 Coefficient= -9.05, Standard error=2.98, F test=9.25). Streptococcus pneumoniae remains the prime pathogen associated with respiratory tract infections especially for outpatients in our environment, while Extended Spectrum Beta Lactamase producing Klebsiella pneumoniae was seen mainly in inpatients. Streptococcus pneumonia and Klebsiella pneumoniae were the most prevalent pathogen both among in-patients and outpatients. The findings of this study will help in redesigning empiric therapy for clinicians with respect to respiratory tract infections.
