    • HOW should antibiotics be administered?
      • Within 1 hour of patient identification for non-ED patients and 3 hours to identify septic patients and administer antibiotics in the ED setting
      • Compatibilities should be checked – more antibiotics are compatible than you may realize
      • A broad spectrum of antibiotic should always be administered first
    • Spectrum of Activity for Selected Antimicrobial Agents
      • Gram (+) Antibiotics (+/- Anaerobes)
      • Vancomycin (Vancocin®), Linezolid (Zyvox®), Daptomycin (Cubicin®), Clindamycin (Cleocin®)
      • Gram (-) Antibiotics (+/- Anaerobes )
      • Gentamicin, Tobramycin, Aztreonam (Azactam®)
      • Antifungal
      • Fluconazole (Diflucan®), Caspofungin (Cancidas®), Micafungin (Mycamine®), Amphotericin B
    • Broad Spectrum Antibiotics
      • Penicillins
      • Piperacillin/Tazobactam (Zosyn®), Ampicillin/Sublactam (Unasyn®)
      • Cephalosporins
      • Ceftriazone (Rocephin®), Ceftazidine (Fortaz®), Cefipime (Maxipime®)
      • Fluoroquinolones
      • Ciprofloxin (Cipro®), Moxifloxacin (Avelox®), Levofloxacin (Levaquin®)
      • Carbapenem
      • Imipenem/Cilastin (Primaxin®), Meropenem (Merrem®)
    • WHY does this matter?
      • Sepsis is a range of clinical conditions caused by the body’s systemic response to an infection, which can be accompanied by single or multiple organ dysfunction or failure, leading to death
      • Sepsis kills approximately 1,400 people worldwide every day and is a leading cause of death in ICU patients
      • Patients who do not receive prompt antibiotic therapy have a 10-15% increased risk of mortality – therefore early administration of antibiotics have proven to improve mortality
      • Nurses play a huge role in patient care and ensuring that antibiotics are given correctly and in a timely manner
    • That’s all for now!
      • Now you can take the post test and see what you have learned.
