Abstract

This study performed a retrospective analysis on the relationship between blood culture time-to-positivity (TP) and type of isolated microorganism, antibiotic administration, and immunological status of the patients. We analyzed the data related to 1,218 positive blood cultures. When compared to Gram positive bacteraemia, the percentage of Gram negative growth was higher and the mean TP significantly shorter (p
