Resistance to colistin, a last resort antibiotic, has emerged in India. We investigated colistin-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae(ColR-KP) in a hospital in India to describe infections, characterize resistance of isolates, compare concordance of detection methods, and identify transmission events.
Retrospective observational study.
Case-patients were defined as individuals from whom ColR-KP was isolated from a clinical specimen between January 2016 and October 2017. Isolates resistant to colistin by Vitek 2 were confirmed by broth microdilution (BMD). Isolates underwent colistin susceptibility testing by disk diffusion and whole-genome sequencing. Medical records were reviewed.
Of 846 K. pneumoniae isolates, 34 (4%) were colistin resistant. In total, 22 case-patients were identified. Most (90%) were male; their median age was 33 years. Half were transferred from another hospital; 45% died. Case-patients were admitted for a median of 14 days before detection of ColR-KP. Also, 7 case-patients (32%) received colistin before detection of ColR-KP. All isolates were resistant to carbapenems and susceptible to tigecycline. Isolates resistant to colistin by Vitek 2 were also resistant by BMD; 2 ColR-KP isolates were resistant by disk diffusion. Moreover, 8 multilocus sequence types were identified. Isolates were negative for mobile colistin resistance (mcr) genes. Based on sequencing analysis, in-hospital transmission may have occurred with 8 case-patients (38%).
Multiple infections caused by highly resistant, mcr-negative ColR-KP with substantial mortality were identified. Disk diffusion correlated poorly with Vitek 2 and BMD for detection of ColR-KP. Sequencing indicated multiple importation and in-hospital transmission events. Enhanced detection for ColR-KP may be warranted in India.
A trauma registry is a disease-specific data collection composed of a file of uniform data elements that describe the injury even, demographics, prehospital information, diagnosis, care, outcomes, and costs of treatment for injured patients.
To establish a trauma registry system on an electronic platform enabling data capturing through Android phones.
A software has been developed for the registry data collection for road traffic injury patients arriving at JPNATC, AIIMS, New Delhi. The software has been designed to use in the Emergency Department on Android phones/laptops with internet access.
A detailed registry data set has been prepared to enter prehospital, in-hospital, and post-discharge details of all the admitted patients. This includes demographic data, prehospital data, injury event data, vital signs within 24-hrs of arrival, ED disposition (date and time), operative procedures within 48 hours of arrival, chest x-ray (date and time), CT (date and time), ventilation days, ICU-stay days, hospital disposition (date and time), injury coding data (region, severity level, ISS, AIS, ICD-10) and Others, e.g., first neurosurgical consultation (date and time) and first blood transfusion (date and time). There are two panels for this software; one for user panel and another for the administrative panel. User panel is being used for data collection by the trained data collectors 24/7 at the emergency department on a rotation basis. The administrative panel is accessible to only the investigator or other authorized persons. The administrative panel and user panels are password protected. The entered data is being saved in a spreadsheet in the backend and can be used for periodic data quality check and data analysis.
There is no trauma registry in India so far for the road traffic injury patients. Present innovation would lay the foundation of national Trauma Registry in India.
