Lack hospital infection control, inappropriate antibiotic treatment especially carbapanem usage has led to emergence more resistant A.baumanii . Deeper understanding about mechanism of resistance of A.baumanii are paramount for infection control and treatment strategy. This study was almed to collect surveillance data about mechanism of resistance profiles of A.baumanii from ICU patients of Dr. Kariadi Hospital for improving infection control dan treatment strategies in ICU Dr. Kariadi Hospital.
