Abstract

The Spanish Antibiogram Committee (Comité Español del Antibiograma, COESANT) presents in this document a series of recommendations intending to unify how cumulative antibiogram reports must be made in Clinical Microbiology Spanish laboratories. This article is based on the information included in the Clinical Microbiology Procedure No. 51, «Preparation of cumulative reports on antimicrobial susceptibility» of the Spanish Society of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology (SEIMC), published in 2014. The recommendations also include the modifications in the definition of clinical interpretive categories recently published by the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) in 2019. Its final objective is to establish a homogeneous way of preparing these summaries to compare results from different centers or aggregate the information from these in order to carry out an adequate local or even national surveillance regarding the evolution of antimicrobial susceptibility.
