Methods: Health Institutions interested in the surveillance and control of antibiotic use were invited to participate. An electronic online tool for entering data prescription of antibiotics was designed, according to the occupancy percentage, number of beds and number of antibiotics (blisters month per month). monitoring antibiotic consumption was the ATC/DDD system, and the unit of measurement was Defined Daily dose /100 occupied bed-days (DDD/100 OBD) during the period 2013-2015.
Results: 11 institutions (5 from Bogotá D.C. and 6 from another cities) reported data from The top 5 most common antibiotics were: meropenem, vancomycin, cefepime, ceftriaxone and ciprofloxacin. The general average of DDD/100 OBD of antibiotics consumption from all institutions was 78,5 for 2013, 50.6 for 2014 and 45,6 for 2015. The average of DDD/100 OBD of the most common antibiotics was 0,23 for meropenem, 1,45 for vancomycin, 2,37 for cefepime, 1,47 for ceftriaxone and 0.71 for ciprofloxacin. Our findings describe an increase in expected value of some antibiotics such as Meropenem, Cefepime and Ceftriaxone in the period analyzed.
Conclusion: Despite the decline in total consumption of antimicrobials meropenem, ceftriaxone and cefepime presented an Increase in the tendency of use in the participating institutions. Our data findings provide baseline information on patterns of antibiotic consumption in Colombia and to correlate these findings with results of antibiotic susceptibility testing would provide insights and tools needed to support surveillance strategies and prudent use of antibiotics.
