Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
I am an expert in preventing and control microbiological drug resistance.
When there is a suspected clinical infection, doctors should first assess whether or not they should use antibiotics. When necessary, collect specimens for examination before using antibiotics. Laboratory teams should quickly conduct tests, identify pathogens, find sensitive antibiotics, and report their results promptly. This process can transform an infection from an empirical treatment to targeted treatment, improving treatment effectiveness and reducing drug resistance.
If we record and analyze the data related to each infection to obtain monitoring data of drug resistance, we can master the distribution of bacteria and the changes of drug resistance, so as to formulate and adjust our prevention, control, and treatment strategies accordingly.
