An organization’s Infection Control and Microbiology teams will have in-depth knowledge of the prevalence of individual organisms and their resistance profile. They may employ a policy of antibiotic rotation (periodic withdrawal of some groups of agent and reintroduction of those previously withheld) to reduce resistance. Guidelines will need to be reviewed regularly as the profile of organisms in a community changes. 1) will consider some or all of the following factors. We have used the choice of antibiotic in pneumonia to illustrate some of the treatment decisions, although similar considerations will apply to all conditions.

In the case of a HAP, this may prompt treatment with an agent such as linezolid. A history of allergy to any antibiotic should be sought and identified. The most common allergy given by a patient is to penicillins, but it should also be remembered that a true penicillin allergy carries a risk of cross-sensitivity with cephalosporins and carbapenems. Recent or recurrent use of antibiotics will increase the likelihood of resistant organisms, in which case expert advice should be sought from microbiology.

CHAPTER 7 Microbiology and Antibiotic Therapy Partha De1 and Ron Daniels2 1 2 Consultant Microbiologist, Good Hope Hospital, Birmingham, UK Good Hope Hospital, Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham, UK OVERVIEW • Infection prevention and control measures must be adhered to • Sepsis is usually bacterial in origin, though fungi and viruses should also be considered • General advice cannot replace in-depth knowledge of the local prevalence of pathogens and their resistance profiles • Obtaining appropriate microbiology samples will facilitate a change from broad-spectrum to narrow-spectrum antibiotics within 48–72 hours • The choice of antibiotic should be carefully considered Introduction The microbiology behind sepsis is varied, although certain organisms give rise to sepsis more commonly than others.
