Abstract

Prior studies have demonstrated high rates of colonization and infection with multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacilli (MDR-GNB) in injured military personnel. Our analysis shows that injuries inflicted during peak combat periods, massive blood transfusion requirement, and posttrauma cefazolin prophylaxis (additive effect with fluoroquinolones) were risk factors for MDR-GNB colonization.
