- Bacterial Flora of the Ear, Nose and Throat in Aboriginal Infants from Brisbane and Cherbourg
- Medical Journal of Australia
- 1975, pp. 40-44
A total of 1,044 nose and throat swabs and 54 ear swabs were collected from 219 Aboriginal babies in Brisbane and at Cherbourg over a two-and-a-half year period. The incidence of Staphylococcus aureus was found to be similar for both localities (approximately 20% in nasal swabs and 12% in throat swabs). Enterobacteria were found much more commonly at Cherbourg (43% in nasal swabs, 60% in throat swabs). Fifty-four ear swabs produced a wide variety of organisms with proteus species most common. Changes in the nose and throat flora over the period of examination are noted.
