Abstract

This study was performed at the Clinic for anestesiology, reanimation and intensive care - KARIL, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. Bacteriological data for cannulas and tubes from 01.01.2010 to 31.12.2012 were retrieved from the microbiology laboratory database and reviewed. Acinetobacter baumannii isolates were presumptively identified by using morphology of the colonies, Gram staining, oxydase and catalase reactions. Then were performed standard IMViC biochemical series (indol, methyl rot, Voges-Proskauer, and citrate reactions) and positive biochemical activities of citrate were found. White growth was shown on hromogenic UTI media (Oxoid, UK). A seasonal variation in the isolation rate of Acinetobacter spp. was observed and the largest number of isolates was obtained during winter months, early spring and early autumn in 2010, spring months and winter in 2011, summer and winter months in 2012.
