To investigate the situation of antibiotic consumption and to assess the inappropriate use on pediatric inpatients of different types hospitals in Sichuan, China.A cross-sectional survey of antibiotic prescriptions among hospitalized children aged 1month -14years were conducted from April 2018 to June 2018 in southwestern China. Antibiotic prescriptions were extracted from electronic records during hospitalization of each inpatient in five different types hospitals.In this study, the antibiotic prescription...
Viral acute respiratory tract infections (vARTI) are a frequent source of inappropriate antibiotic prescribing. We describe the prevalence of antibiotic prescribing for vARTI in the pediatric emergency department (ED) and urgent care (UC) within a health system, and identify factors associated with overall and broad-spectrum antibiotic prescribing.
The first methodologic step needed to compare pediatric health outcomes at children's hospitals (CHs) and non-children's hospitals (NCHs) is to classify hospitals into CH and NCH categories. However, there are currently no standardized or validated methods for classifying hospitals. The purpose of this study was to describe a novel and reproducible hospital classification methodology.
Although the majority of children are hospitalized in nonchildren's hospitals, little is known about the quality and safety of pediatric care in community hospitals.
Inappropriate antibiotic prescribing is a cause of antimicrobial resistance. Acute Respiratory Tract Infections (ARTI) are common diseases for those antibiotics are most likely prescribed in outpatient setting.
In the province of Ontario, nonphysiologically complex surgical procedures have increased at 4 pediatric hospitals with a reciprocal decline among the other (general) hospitals performing pediatric surgery. Given the differences between the Canadian and US health systems, we studied whether a similar shift occurred in the state of Florida and examined the age dependence of the shift.
Antibiotic consumption is associated with the development of antibiotic resistance. Our aim was to study the relationship between antibiotic consumption and carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) in three public general tertiary hospitals from 2011-2015 in the eastern, western and central regions of China.
The objective of this study is to determine recent trends in use of robotics and laparoscopy for pediatric retroperitoneal lymph-node dissection (RPLND) in pediatric and non-pediatric hospitals. We conducted a retrospective cohort study using data from 29 hospitals in the Pediatric Health Information System (PHIS), and data from 14 states in the State Inpatient Databases (SID), between 2008 and 2014. The study population was comprised of patients aged ≥ 10 years undergoing RPLND, with an inpatient di...
The purpose of this study was to assess compliance with antimicrobial spectrum guidelines in the use of surgical antibiotic prophylaxis (SAP) in pediatric surgery.
To establish the current situation of antimicrobial resistance and antibiotic consumption in Mexican hospitals.
Motivated by the well documented worldwide spread of adverse drug events, as well as the increased danger of antibiotic resistance (caused mainly by inappropriate prescribing and overuse), we propose a novel recommendation system for antibiotic prescription (PARS).
To determine the prevalence and impact of patient-reported antibiotic allergies in the intensive care unit (ICU), which are currently poorly defined. Antibiotic allergy labels (AALs) are associated with inappropriate antibiotic prescribing and with inferior patient, microbiological and hospital outcomes.
Antibiotics are prescribed daily in emergency departments (EDs) and urgent care centers (UCCs) for acute respiratory infections (ARIs). Despite recognizing the need for antibiotic stewardship, there continue to be many inappropriate prescriptions for antibiotic non-responsive ARIs. The authors of this study sought to evaluate the comparative effectiveness of two antibiotic stewardship interventions in reducing inappropriate prescriptions. An adapted intervention for ambulatory care settings was compared to ...
Antibiotic prescriptions in 227 patients with acute group A b-hemolytic streptococcal pharyngitis in the emergency department were studied. Antibiotic prescription was inappropriate in 42% of the cases, especially due to errors in the prescription of amoxicillin. Probably the use of low-spectrum penicillins would improve this percentage.
Inappropriate use of antibiotics in human and animal is one of the causes of antimicrobial resistance. This study evaluates the prevalence and predictors of antibiotic use among pediatric patients visiting the Emergency Department (ED) in Malaysia. A retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted in the ED of a tertiary hospital. Data of children aged 2 to 11 years who visited the ED from January-May 2015 were extracted from the patient's assessment forms. A total of 549 children were included in the an...
Vaccines against viral infections have been proposed to reduce prescribing of antibiotics and thereby help control resistant bacterial infections. However, by combining published data sources, we predict that pediatric live attenuated influenza vaccination in England and Wales will not substantially reduce antibiotic consumption or adverse health outcomes associated with antibiotic resistance.
To assess the success of a modified approach to external pediatric cricopharyngeal myotomy in children with inappropriate upper esophageal sphincter relaxation as determined by video fluoroscopic swallow study (VFSS) and pediatric manometry findings.
Objectives To reduce overprescribing, health campaigns urge physicians to provide people with information regarding appropriate antibiotic use and encourage the public to trust their physicians' prescribing decisions. We test (1) whether providing individuals with complete information about the viral aetiology of an illness and the ineffectiveness of antibiotics will reduce inappropriate antibiotic expectations, (2) whether individuals with greater trust in their physician will have lower expectations, and...
Inappropriate use of antibiotics is recognised as a leading cause of antibiotic resistance. Little is known about antibiotic prescribing practices at public health facilities in low- and middle-income countries. We examined patterns of antibiotic prescribing in public health facilities in Nepal and explored factors influencing these practices.
In pediatric burns the use of systemic antibiotic prophylaxis is a standard procedure in some burn centers, though its beneficial effect on the infectious complications is debated. The present meta-analysis aimed at determining whether systemic antibiotic prophylaxis prevents infectious complications in pediatric patients with burn injuries. We searched the PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane Library databases from inception to August 2019. We included 6 studies, in which event rates of infectious complications we...
Antibiotic use in hospitals is high, particularly in surgical specialty and intensive care units. Antimicrobial stewardship programmes (ASPs) are increasingly intervening in antibiotic use by surgeons and intensivists. However, there is limited information on the features which characterize antibiotic decision making in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU), an area in hospital practice where critically ill surgery patients can be kept under close observation.
The aims of our study were to determine antibiotic prescribing rates for prevention and treatment of infections in pediatric units, to evaluate the number and type of antimicrobial agents and administration route, reveal commonly used antibiotic subgroups and identify targets for improving the quality of antimicrobial prescribing. A 1-day PPS (Point Prevalence Study) on antibiotic use in hospitalized children was performed in Georgia from 2015 to 2019. 18 clinics in different regions of Georgia were include...
Knowledge, attitude and antibiotic prescribing patterns of medical doctors providing free healthcare in the outpatient departments of public hospitals in Sierra Leone: a national cross-sectional study.
Antibiotic resistance is a global health crisis and irrational prescribing behaviour has been identified as a contributing factor. The current study aimed to assess the knowledge of, attitudes towards and practices regarding antibiotic prescribing of medical doctors providing free healthcare services in the outpatient departments of public hospitals in Sierra Leone. In addition, we evaluated prescribing patterns of antibiotics.
The reduction in inappropriate utilization of hospitals' emergency departments (EDs) is usually an important objective of primary health care (PHC) reforms. Existing literature provides mixed evidence on the effectiveness of PHC reforms in reducing inappropriate utilization of ED. We assess whether the specific PHC reforms ongoing in Portugal since 2005, and in particular the creation of family health units (FHUs), were successful in reducing inappropriate utilization of EDs and provide a contribution to th...
Tacrolimus dosing is routinely tailored based on its trough-level (C0) drawn by therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) in pediatric patients with primary nephrotic syndrome (PNS). However, this concentration is often inaccurate owing to inappropriate practice, such as deviation of sampling time (DST). The quantitative relationship between DST and C0 remains unclear.
