Abstract :

People living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) are highly vulnerable to colonization by sensitive and/or resistant microorganisms, some risk factors are previous hospitalization and use of antimicrobials. We conducted a cross-sectional study in two hospital units├ó┬?┬? specialized care in HIV/AIDS. The nasal secretion samples were collected from PLWH hospitalized in the period from August 2011 to February 2015. All hospitalized patients were invited to participate in the study; the samples were composed by those who had more than one hospitalization during the collection period. Each patient was tested by the presence or absence of a nasal microorganism in the first and subsequent hospitalization. The descriptive statistics were used, obtaining the frequency of each variable and the analytics to compare the groups by the chi-square test or Fisher's exact test; it was considered the significance level as 5%. The data were analyzed using IBM SPSS version 20.0. The ethical aspects were contemplated. From the 527 participants 84 had more than one admission, that├ó┬?┬?s the study sample. The average age was 40 years (SD├?┬▒9.1), 64.3% were male and 66.7% reported being white ethnicity, were using antimicrobial 72.6%. The successive hospitalizations were more observed among males (85.2%). Current antiretroviral therapy or use antimicrobial did not impact the association of microorganisms colonization (p=0.650; p=0.255), respectively. The presence of microorganism was identified in 53.6% of patients in some hospital. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated in 65.5% of samples when grouped all hospitalizations. The knowledge about the status of colonization of PLWH contributes to institute preventive measures to future infection.
