Abstract

We evaluated 30-day mortality in patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteremia. There was no significant difference in mortality among patients who received functional aminoglycoside monotherapy versus inappropriate empiric therapy. Among patients given appropriate empiric therapy, functional aminoglycoside monotherapy was associated with less favorable outcomes compared to beta-lactam monotherapy.
