Anaerobic Antibiotic Usage for Pneumonia in the Medical Intensive Care Unit

2017-02-09 11:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Observation of prescription usage of anaerobic antibiotics for patients admitted to the ICU with pneumonia.

Description

Pneumonia is a common admitting diagnosis in the intensive care unit (ICU). When aspiration is suspected, antibiotics to cover anaerobes are frequently used , but in the absence of clear risk factors, current guidelines have questioned their role. It is unknown how frequently these guidelines are followed.
