This is a MUST READ for anyone suffering from a CHRONIC staph infection. (vancomycin-resistant!)
Both community-associated and hospital-acquired infections with Staphylococcus aureus have increased in the past 20 years, and the rise in incidence has been accompanied by a rise in antibiotic-resistant strains—in particular, methicillin-resistant S aureus (MRSA) and, more recently, vancomycin-resistant strains.
Essential update: Adult vancomycin dosing nomograms inadequate for older pediatric patients.
