From our Columbia Critical Care Colleauges: MERINO Review
” It should be noted that in this study, extended infusion intervals of PTZ were not utilized, and there were more immunocompromised and neutropenic patients in the PTZ group. While the authors support antibiotic stewardship and judicious de-escalation of antibiotics when appropriate, in the case of ESBL producing E. coli or Klebsiella species, carbapenems should be utilized over PTZ.”
What do you think? What will we use when resistance to carbapenems develops? Do we need to be giving carbapenems in the ED to patients with a bug-drug history of ESBL bacteremia? With a bug-drug history of cefotaxime resistant e. coli?
