How common are superbugs in Australia, and what do we do when the antibiotics don't work?

Bowden, Francis

Description

Hospitals in Australia are increasingly seeing patients with infections that are resistant to all but a handful of antibiotics. Last year an infection caused by bacteria that were resistant to all antibiotics (a so-called “pan-resistant” strain) was detected in the US for the first time. We can expect pan-resistant strains here too.
