Özet

Objective: Infections are frequently seen in critically-ill patients and they are associated with increased mortality, morbidity and cost. Antibiotics play a very important role in the prevention and treatment of infections, yet associated with increased resistance especially when used inappropriately. In our study, we analyzed the data regarding antibiotic use before and during intensive care and we evaluated factors related to antibiotic change.
