acute respiratory infections, bacterial microflora, children, oropharynx, resistance to antibiotics


The article describes the problem of antibiotic resistance of main bacterial pathogens in children with acute respiratory diseases, mechanisms of occurrence and ways to overcome them. The state of antibiotic resistance of pathogenic bacterial microflora of oropharynx was studied in children with acute respiratory infections. The authors emphasize the need for an integrated approach to solving the problem of antibiotic resistance, which includes obligatory systematic monitoring of microbial resistance to antibiotics, educational programs to prevent the misuse of antibiotics as the main factor that provokes the spread of bacterial microflora resistance to antibacterial drugs.
