With regard to concurrent bacteremia, Klebsiella pneumoniae was isolated from three patients, and Rosemonas species, Moraxella lacunata, Klebsiella ozaenae, and Enterococcus faecalis were isolated from one patient each (Lee et al., 2005).
Correspondingly, the bacterial immobilization showed the predominance of five microorganisms (Acinetobacter haemolyticus, Acinetobacter johnsonii, Acinetobacter lwoffii, Aeromonas sobria, and Moraxella lacunata) for the effective degradation of organic pollutants with respect to reduction of COD percentage.
The microorganisms isolated from this universe of patients with MVAP were: Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Pseudomonas spp., Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter cloacae, Proteus mirabilis, Moraxella lacunata, and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecalis.
