Objective: To identify bacterial resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates through records of Intensive Care patients. Method: documentary and quantitative study, conducted with 90 records of patients who were admitted from January 2013/2015. They take into account the ethical aspects of research with human, having CAAE: 42260815.8.0000.5183. Results: About the reason for admission to septicemia predominated with 16,7%. Of invasive procedures the central venous catheter prevailed 19.1%, and the presence of invasive mechanical ventilation 18.1%. It was found that Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found in tracheal secretion and show resistance to the tested antibiotics. Conclusions: The records of the records revealed that men were more likely to contract infection. Research has relevant information to the nursing staff of the Intensive Care Unit, it proves what are the prevalent microorganisms in the interim, it is important for health decision-making.
