Abstract

Infections in war wounds remain of crucial importance in today’s military medicine. Infections are impacting both mortality and morbidity in military personnel. Furthermore, treatment costs are rising because of increasing incidence of MDR infections. The spread of highly resistant strains from military to civilian health care facilities is also disturbing. The paper identifies the major shortcomings in military infection control measures as the main reason behind the increasing antibiotic resistance in clinical relevant bacteria. Several recommendations to improve antibiotics susceptibility and to prevent further spreading of MDR organisms to civilian facilities are made.
