From: Risk factors for fecal carriage of carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae among intensive care unit patients from a tertiary care center in India

  Controls (%) ICU
D1 (%) D4 (%)
Total no. of patients screened 122 100 100
Total no. of patients with growth of Enterobacteriaceae 89 (72.9) 63 (63) 58 (58)
No of patients colonized with CRE 14 (11.5) 20 (20) 35 (35)**
No of patients colonized with CPE 8 (6.6) 11 (11) 22 (22)**
  1. CRE carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae, CPE carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae, Non CPE non carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae, D1 Day 1, D4 Day 4. ** p value significant compared to ICU D1 (<0.05) and controls (<0.05)
