In brief: Varies

This bacteria is a relatively common cause of hospital acquired infections.
It is also an important cause of infection in patients with cystic fibrosis. To get an idea of how common in hospitalized patients it is seen in up to 4/1000 patient discharges from the hospital and is responsible for about 10% of hospital acquired infections.

Aer accounted for 18% of hospital acquired pneumonias, 16% of hospital acquired uti's, 9.5% of surgical site infections and 3.4% of bloodstream infections. There is a problem with increasing antibiotic resistance in this organism.
