Abstract

The sensitivity of S. aureus to antibiotics in an incubation with the different gas composition of the atmosphere has been studied. It was established that the decrease in the partial oxygen and increase carbon dioxide in different ways effect on antibiotic sensitivity of Staphylococcus aureus. It could play a certain pathogenetic role in the development of infectious agents in the deeper layers of tissue, where it is noted a lower concentration of oxygen.
