PURPOSE: To determine factors associated with the presence of drug-resistant pathogens (DRPs) and create a risk scoring model of DRPs in critically ill patients with pneumonia.
METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of adult patients with culture-positive pneumonia in a medical intensive care unit at a tertiary academic medical center from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2014. Factors, currently published 8 clinical prediction models including HCAP criteria, and clinical impact associated with the presence of DRPs were assessed. A logistic regression model was used for analysis. We evaluated the predictive value of the score by determining areas under the receiver-operating characteristic (AUROC) curves.
