[the ratios and kinds of clinical bacteria isolated in taiwan's large-size hospitals].the prevalence of clinical bacteria, as isolated from linko chang-gung memorial hospital (2,300 beds) in the period january 1985 to december 1986 and from taipei veterans general hospital (2,300 beds) during the period january 1986 to december 1986, was analyzed with the following findings: (i) the isolation ratio of anaerobic and aerobic or facultative bactria during the period of investigation were 7.8% (5,513/70,799) and 92.2% (65,286/70,799), respectively. (ii) of the total aerobic or facult ...19892791722
classification, pathogenicity, and drug susceptibility of hemolytic gram-negative bacteria isolated from sick or dead chickens.fifteen hemolytic gram-negative bacteria were isolated from the respiratory tracts of sick birds suffering from a long-lasting respiratory syndrome or from the bone marrow of dead birds distributed in the southern part of taiwan. these were classified as pseudomonas aeruginosa (10 isolates), pseudomonas fluorescens (2 isolates), pseudomonas stutzeri (1 isolate), pasteurella haemolytica (1 isolate), and proteus morganii (1 isolate). each isolate was inoculated intraperitoneally into one group of ...19938452510
emerging fluoroquinolone-resistance for common clinically important gram-negative bacteria in taiwan.the in vitro antimicrobial activity of the three most commonly used fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin) was measured for 2235 isolates of seven common pathogenic gram-negative bacteria. collected from a major teaching hospital in taiwan during the years 1985-86, 1989-90, and 1996-97, the samples were evaluated using the agar dilution method. the overall susceptibility to fluoroquinolones has decreased rapidly after the wide use of these antimicrobial agents. isolates of e ...200212088622

in vitro activity of isepamicin and other aminoglycosides against clinical isolates of gram-negative bacteria causing nosocomial bloodstream infections.isepamicin is a newly introduced aminoglycoside in taiwan. since in vitro data for isepamicin against nosocomial gram-negative bloodstream infection from taiwan are limited, we compared the activity of isepamicin, amikacin, gentamicin and tobramycin against nosocomial gram-negative blood isolates.200718087627
bacterial infection in association with snakebite: a-á10-year experience in a northern taiwan medical center.background: microbiological data of secondary wound infections following snakebites is rarely reported in taiwan. the objective of this study was to assess the secondary wound infection after venomous snakebites. methods: we conducted a 10-year retrospective survey on patients admitted for venomous snakebites and microbiological data of wound cultures at a medical center in northern taiwan. results: between april 2001 and april 2010, 231 patients who experienced snakebites were included. male pr ...201121700517
carbapenem susceptibilities and non-susceptibility concordance to different carbapenems amongst clinically important gram-negative bacteria isolated from intensive care units in taiwan: results from the surveillance of multicentre antimicrobial resistance in taiwan (smart) in investigate the in vitro susceptibilities to various carbapenems amongst clinical gram-negative bacteria isolated from patients in intensive care units of ten major teaching hospitals in taiwan in 2009, a survey was conducted to determine the minimum inhibitory concentrations (mics) of ertapenem, imipenem, meropenem and doripenem against isolates of enterobacteriaceae (n = 594), pseudomonas aeruginosa (n = 185), acinetobacter baumannii (n = 192) and burkholderia cepacia (n = 23) using the aga ...201323507415
bacteriology of naja atra snakebite wound and its implications for antibiotic therapy.a total of 112 cases of naja atra envenomation were examined at two referring hospitals: taichung veterans general hospital in central taiwan and taipei veterans general hospital (vgh-tp) in northern taiwan. overall, 77% (86/112) of cases developed clinically suspected wound infections and 54% (61/112) required surgery secondary to tissue necrosis, finger or toe gangrene, and/or necrotizing fasciitis. morganella morganii was the most abundant gram-negative bacterial strain isolated from bite wou ...201626976881
can surgical need in patients with naja atra (taiwan or chinese cobra) envenomation be predicted in the emergency department?to investigate the clinical predictors and the aetiologies for surgery in patients with naja atra (taiwan or chinese cobra) envenomation.201627516567
determination and frying loss of histamine in striped marlin fillets implicated in a foodborne incident of foodborne poisoning causing illness in 67 victims due to ingestion of fried fish fillets occurred in june 2011, in southern taiwan. of the five suspected fish fillets, one fried sample contained 62.0 mg/100 g and one raw sample contained 89.6 mg/100 g histamine, levels which are greater than the potential hazard action level (50 mg/100 g) in most illness cases. given the allergy-like symptoms of the victims and the high histamine content in the suspected fish samples, this foodbor ...201323643129
clinical manifestations and prognostic factors of morganella morganii bacteremia.although morganella morganii causes a variety of clinical infections, there are limited studies on m. morganii bacteremia after the year 2000. a total of 109 patients with m. morganii bacteremia at a medical center in taiwan from 2003 to 2012 were studied. among them, 30.3 % had polymicrobial bacteremia and 75.2 % had community-acquired infection. the most common underlying diseases were hypertension (62.4 %) and diabetes mellitus (38.5 %). the urinary tract (41.3 %) was the major portal of entr ...201525107625
necrotizing fasciitis following venomous snakebites in a tertiary hospital of southwest taiwan.necrotizing fasciitis following venomous snakebites is uncommon. the purpose of this study was to describe the initial clinical features of necrotizing fasciitis after snakebites, and to identify the risk factors for patients with cellulitis who later developed necrotizing fasciitis.201728811229
