When antibiograms go bad

Hi All - I am getting to the part of my Micro class where I have students analyze antibiograms and noticed a blog pointing to the attached paper. Forgive me if this topic (antibiogram data changing as a function of when samples are taken from a patient) has already been covered or commented on, but just in case, take a look. I particulary enjoy data tables showing "time to unreliability" and boy, things sure change fast in the ICU! I would be interested to hear a program about the "ecology of antibiotic resistance" in hospitals/clinics. I can think of reasons why resistance might vary depending on location within a hospital, but not being a clinical person I have no idea what the real reasons are. Forgive me if this too has been already featured.... teaching 5 classes and then coming home two young children keeps me chronically behind.

Love the program, thank you so much!
