Under ICD10 antibiotic resistance will be combined coded with the pathogen or / Infection with implied pathogen.

The following antibiotic resistances are available:

Antibiotic resistance codes:

If the pathogen is resistant to antimicrobials, the infection/pathogen combination should be combined with a code for antibiotic resistance -- thus in this situation there may be 3 or more codes all combined together (the infection, the pathogen, the antibiotic resistance(s)).

Which antibiotics?

I have moved this question here from Category:Antibiotic resistance. Categories should only contain a definition of what qualifies a page to be in that category. More importantly questions in categories don't show up on our automated lists.

  • Allan has agreed to add a list to the relevant drugs to the difference resistance pages
  • It is awkward to work with/find readily available specific information as to the antibiotics included in the general antibiotic resistant

articles. Some articles include links to sites that may/may not be that helpful in determination of inclusion antibiotics.

  • Would it be possible to include a listing of common antibiotics in the general antibiotic resistant articles? It would be helpful for collectors to

have an inclusion list in those articles to use as a quick and easy reference. p:Pam Piche

    • Pam Piche: Question from Allan: I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Is it which antimicrobials are for which type of bug (bacteria, fungal, etc), or something else?? Please expand on your question.
    • I was thinking along the lines of a listing of inclusion antibiotics such as is available in ICU Pharm flow tab (when hovering over category). I was wondering if such a listing would be helpful in quick determination of inclusion antibiotics?
