Antibiogram: Those results seem to be from an antibiogram. This study says which bacteria grew up on the culture test and its sensivity (S) or resistance (R) to some antibiotics. This test is helpful to select the best available antibiotic treatment. It is important to speak out your thoughts to your doctor for having the best interpretation about this results, since these depend of the specific situation.
