UTI Panel W/Abx Resistance Test

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are one of the most common infections in long term care residents in hospitals, especially when it comes to acute hospital settings. In the United States, 5% of all emergency department visits by people over the age of 65 are due to Urinary Tract Infections.

When talking about traditional testing for UTI, it involves a sample of urine of the patient which can take several days to complete. This however reduces its sensitivity and accuracy. When the identification of the pathogen is not as accurate as it should be, the course of treatment and medication opted by healthcare providers might not be the optimal choice. This results in persistent and recurring UTIs. This makes UTI Panel W/Abx Resistance Test (Antibiotic Resistance Test) essential.

Antibiotic Resistance

The ability of bacteria to survive exposure to antibiotics that are being used to kill or stop further growth of that bacteria is what the term ‘antibiotic resistance’ refers to. While antibiotic resistance occurs in nature, it can also be a result of exposure to antibiotics. In such a scenario, the bacteria develop antibiotic resistant genes that shield them from the effects of antibiotics and continue to spread and multiply. This makes UTI Panel W/Abx Resistance Test (Antibiotic Resistance Test) essential in treatment.

Antibiotic resistance refers to the ability of bacteria to survive exposure to antibiotics whose purpose is to kill or stop the growth of those bacteria. Antibiotic resistance occurs in nature but it can also occur as a result of exposure to antibiotics. When this happens, the bacteria develop antibiotic resistance genes that enable them to resist the effect of the antibiotic and continue to multiply.
