NYC Outpatient Antibiogram

How to Use This Antibiogram

The report provides data for the most common pathogens seen in urinary isolates citywide, by borough and by age group (adult vs. pediatrics).

It gives some estimate of the relative likelihood that pathogens cultured will be susceptible to common drugs available for outpatient prescribing.

It can be used in conjunction with other clinical data to inform potential empiric prescribing choices for uncomplicated urinary tract infections when no culture data or when only the pathogen (before susceptibility testing) is available.
