A culture medium for screening pandrug- resistance to aminoglycosides in Gram-negative bacteria

Multidrug resistance in Gram negatives is now recognized as an issue of worldwide interest. Those bacteria possess various resistance mechanisms compromising the efficacy of several class of antibiotics such as beta-lactams and aminoglycosides. Therefore, it is essential

Pathophysiological advantages derived from simultaneous measurement of diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) and nitric oxide (DLNO)

Schematic presentation of CO and NO transfer

It has been over 100 years since Marie Krogh developed the method to measure the transfer of carbon monoxide (CO) through the alveolar wall. Since then, the single-breath CO diffusing capacity (DLCO) has become the most clinically
