Synopsis: 
Sputum, blood and urine cultures done in ICU patients at the UHWI showed a predominance of gram-negative organisms. Risk factors for positive cultures included mechanical ventilation > 5 days, CVP line insertion > 7 days, pre-admission infection, prior use of antibiotics, increasing APACHE II score and increasing age.
