Version 2.77


Various agencies, including the FDA and CLSI in the U.S. and EUCAST in Europe, publish guidelines for determining susceptibility of different organisms to different antimicrobials. In most cases, susceptibility does not vary by infection site, but for a few specific types of infection, including meningitis, pneumonia and urinary tract infection, certain antimicrobials have different susceptibility thresholds, which are called "breakpoints". For terms in LOINC that represent specific breakpoints, the LOINC System will indicate the type of infection that the breakpoint is based on, for example, Isolate.meningitis, Isolate.pneumonia, and Isolate.UTI.
