Objective: To find out the bacteriological profile of post burn infections in wound.
Place and duration of study: Vijayanagar institute of medical sciences, ballari, over a period of one year from 1st January 2014-31st December 2014.
Study design: Prospective
Materials and Methods: Swabs were collected from the burn wounds using standard methods and cultured for the growth of the bacteria.The organisms isolated were identified by standard microbiological methods following which antimicrobial susceptibility test was done by Kirby-baeur disk diffusion test.
Results: The predominant organism isolated from swab culture was Pseudomonas aeruginosa(23%), followed by Staphylococcus aureus(22%), E.coli(14%), K.pneumoniae(9%), K.oxytoca(8%), CONS(7%), Proteus mirabilis(5%), C.freundii(4%) and C.koseri(3%),others(3%) and sterile culture(3%).The antibiogram of Pseudomonas aeruginosa showed high susceptibility to Imipenem( 81%) Piperacillin/Tazobactam (78%), Amikacin(76%), Ceftazidime(60%) and low susceptibility to Gentamicin(57%), Tobramycin(57%), Cefotaxime(47%), and Ceftriaxone(39%).Total resistance pattern was noted in Ampicillin, Cotrimoxazole, Ciprofloxacin.

Keywords: Antibiotic susceptibility, Burn wounds, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
