    Cristina Domenidò

     Cristina Dominedò joined the IAMR group guided by Prof. Antoni Torres in April 2018. She investigated the risk factors for multi drug resistant pathogens identified in the 2017 International ERS/ESICM/ESCMID/ALAT guidelines for the management of hospital-acquired pneumonia and ventilator-associated pneumonia. The results of her fellowship project will be presented at the 39th International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine in Bruxelles. During her one year fellowship she also assessed the role of surveillance cultures and follow up microbiology in the management of nosocomial pneumonia. 

     Her activity in the line of community-acquired pneumonia was focused on very old patients with sepsis and CAP, viral sepsis in adults with CAP, CAP caused by PES pathogens and the role of new antibiotics in the treatment of CAP.
