Background and Objective: In the current study, the relevance of the respiratory infection with the age, sex, and seasonal variation of the year were studied side by side with the determination of the responsible bacterial pathogen and their antibiotic sensitivity patterns.
Materials and Methods: One hundred sputum samples were collected to determine the causative bacteria of respiratory distress. An antibiotic susceptibility test was done to determine the susceptibility pattern of the isolates.
Results & Conclusion: The study found six distinct bacteria causing respiratory infections (Pseudomonas spp., Klebsiella spp., Acinetobacter spp., Enterobacter spp. Escherichia coli, and Serratia spp.). Out of 100 isolates, 21 isolates were susceptible to all of the fourteen antibiotics used in the study, and 4 isolates were completely resistant towards all of the antibiotics which were used in the study. The choice of antibiotic was based on the most prescribed medicines given by the doctors of Bangladesh.
