From: A compilation of antimicrobial susceptibility data from a network of 13 Lebanese hospitals reflecting the national situation during 2015–2016

Antibiotic 2011/2013 N (%S) 2015/2016 N (%S) OR (95% CI) P
Ampicillin 784 (81%) 596 (85%) 1.34 (1.00–1.79) 0.06
Ceftriaxone 690 (97%) 655 (97%) 0.99 (0.53–1.87) 1
