  Purpose
The pattern of organism causing diabetic foot infection are presumed to vary from location to location depending on the antibiotic prescription practice, geographical locations, environmental variations and therapeutic interventions for various patients. Our hypothesis is look to finding out common similarities with diversified subgroups spread across various geographical locations of eastern part of India, thus to create a data base for treating patient with diabetic foot infections.The sensitivity pattern is anticipated to be different from institution to institutions and place to place but the gross sensitivity data of local pathogen could guide physician for choosing right empirical antibiotic. Practice guideline could be postulated from the collated data of distribution of pathogens, their sensitivity pattern as well as co-morbid conditions of the sufferers.

Condition

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only

Further study details as provided by Sun Valley Hospital, Guwahati:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Epidemiological pattern of diabetic foot infection in eastern India [ Time Frame: One year ]
  • Sensitivity of isolated organisms to antibiotics [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Risk factors associated with different grades of severity of DFI [ Time Frame: one year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To record prevailing management practices of diabetic foot infection in terms of disease, antibiotic practice, practice of supportive and surgical care. [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Common empiric antibiotic therapies used in management of DFI [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Percentage sensitivity to different empiric antibiotics [ Time Frame: one year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: June 2011
