Avast majority of patients present to the ICUs with sepsis and septic shock. Delay in recognition and initiation of therapy with inappropriate antimicrobials worsen the course of illness, in the form of multiorgan failure and leads to increased need for organ support therapies, ICU and hospital length of stay, increased costs and poor outcomes. Choosing the correct antimicrobial is, therefore, extremely important. Unlike Western ICUs, Gram-negative infections are highly prevalent in Indian ICUs.
