Pathogens commonly associated with VAP include gram negative bacilli such as, pseudomonas aeruginosa, escherichia coli, klebsiella pneumoniae, acinetobacter.
Methods: This descriptive, cross-sectional study was carried out at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, Karachi, from March to December 2014, and comprised Acinetobacter species isolated from the clinical specimen collected from hospitalised neonates.
Carbapenem and amikacin resistance was found with a rate of 100%, whereas colisitin resistance was not found in Acinetobacter spp.

22,23 Studies investigating the antibiotic susceptibility of Acinetobacter species revealed that these bacteria are most susceptible to colistin and tigecycline, and a combination of these antibiotics has the lowest antagonistic interaction when compared to combinations of colistin or tigecycline with carbapenems.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information NCBI Enterococcus, Staphylococcus, Klebsiella, Acinetobacter, Pseudomonas andEnterobacter, which known as the riskiest superbugs, have high number of plasmids (Table 2).

Introduction: Colistin can be used in patients infected with carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii complex (CR-ABC), but recently resistance to colistin and heteroresistance have been reported.
