1 Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing: Advanced Course

2 Cascade Reporting

3 Cascade Reporting I. Selecting Antimicrobial Agents for Testing and Reporting Selection of the most appropriate antimicrobials to test & report is a decision best made by each clinical laboratory in consultation with: Infectious disease practitioners Pharmacy Pharmacy & Therapeutics committee Infection Control committee Considerations of antimicrobials include: clinical efficacy prevalence of resistance (& minimizing the emergence of resistance) cost FDA clinical indications for use current consensus for first-choice and alternative drugs tests of selected agents may be useful for infection control purposes

4 Test/Report Groups. Group A are considered appropriate for inclusion in a routine, primary testing panel, as well as for routine reporting of results for the specific organism groups. 2. Group B includes antimicrobial agents that may warrant primary testing but they may be reported only selectively, such as when the organism is resistant to agents of the same antimicrobial class, as in Group A. Other indications for reporting the result might include a selected specimen source (eg, a third-generation cephalosporin for enteric bacilli from cerebrospinal fluid or trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for urinary tract isolates); a polymicrobial infection; infections involving multiple sites; cases of patient allergy, intolerance, or failure to respond to an agent in Group A; or for purposes of infection control.. Group C includes alternative or supplemental antimicrobial agents that may require testing in those institutions that harbor endemic or epidemic strains resistant to several of the primary drugs (especially in the same class, eg, -lactams); for treatment of patients allergic to primary drugs; for treatment of unusual organisms (eg, chloramphenicol for extraintestinal isolates of Salmonella spp.); or for reporting to infection control as an epidemiological aid.. Group U ( urine ) includes antimicrobial agents (eg, nitrofurantoin and certain quinolones) that are used only or primarily for treating urinary tract infections. These agents should not be routinely reported against pathogens recovered from other sites of infection. Other agents with broader indications may be included in Group U for specific urinary pathogens (eg, P. aeruginosa and ofloxacin). 5. Group O ( other ) includes antimicrobial agents that have a clinical indication for the organism group, but are generally not candidates for routine testing and reporting in the United States. 6. Group Inv. ( investigational ) includes antimicrobial agents that are investigational for the organism group and have not yet been approved by the FDA for use in the United States.

For E. coli, Klebsiella spp., and P. mirabilis: If Ceftazidime is non-s or if Vitek flags the isolate as ESBL, result ESBL biochem as Yes. 2. If Ceftriaxone is non-susceptible, confirm results. Bring to rounds if non-susceptibility is confirmed.. Even if not cascaded, if Ertapenem and/or Meropenem are confirmed as non-susceptible, report both.

38 Cascade Reporting SUMMARY: Use the CLSI M00 document as a guide. Decide with your ID, ID pharmacy, and IC clinicians what should be reported for your organism groups. What is routinely reported What is cascaded What is tested/reported only by special request Have clear guidance/training for your staff.

39 EXERCISE Develop a cascade reporting document (with footnotes!) for an inpatient population for the enterobacteriaceae using the CLSI M00-S2 along with the following directions from your Infectious Disease team: First line aminoglycoside is tobramycin Piperacillin/tazobactam reported out on all GNRs Cefepime should be reserved for resistant organisms Carbapenem of choice is imipenem, but should be reserved for resistant organisms Levofloxacin is used primarily, not ciprofloxacin Cefotaxime is the primary rd generation cephalosporin Include any special considerations for UTI organisms
