389 patients with 401 bacteremic episodes, either community-acquired (CAB) or hospital-acquired (HAB), admitted to the University Hospital of TromsO (UHT), Norway, and 3 small local hospitals in the region (LHs), were reviewed on the basis of data collected in 1985 and 1989.
As regards incidence, sex- and age distribution, distribution to either surgical, medical, or pediatric wards, compared with etiological agents and predisposing factors, the statistical significance has been evaluated.
The proportion of patients <50 years was greater at UHT than in the LHs.
More patients with HAB associated with predisposing factors were hospitalized at UHT than at the LHs.
