Yearly percent resistance to ciprofloxacin, ceftazidime, imipenem, and piperacillin in Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from blood. Increasing proportional resistance occurred in three of the four antibiotics commonly used to treat this organism. Annual number of isolates tested to each antibiotic is given at the top of each graph.
