The increasingly daunting problem of antimicrobial resistance has led to an intense focus on optimization of antibiotic therapy, with simultaneous goals of improving patient outcomes and minimizing the contribution of that therapy to making the available antibiotics obsolete.

JAC

  A February article in The Joint Commission Journal on Quality and Patient Safety found that the one important best practice is the integration of properly selected information technology (IT) because it enables real-time interventions to optimize antimicrobial therapy and patient management. Optimization of antimicrobial use is a cornerstone in the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and one of the five objectives of the WHO global action plan on AMR (1). The growing evidence that antimicrobial use in animals may contribute to some multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacterial infections in humans has increased consumer demand and governmental pressure to optimize antimicrobial.

  In endodontic (root canal) treatment, a multispecies bacterial and fungal infection is present in a place that is inaccessible to the host immune system and which offers physical protection from applied topical agents. All current protocols for irrigation suffer various deficits in performance, which is why further research on alternative approaches to using antimicrobial . Antimicrobial stewardship focused on disease state management and selecting the appropriate antimicrobial therapy for the infecting pathogen is essential in preventing poor outcomes. In addition to poor outcomes, failure to treat infections appropriately can lead to the emergence of resistant organisms that become increasingly difficult to treat.

Appropriate antibiotic use has become a public health issue (CDC 19). The practice of antimicrobial stewardship revolves around the concept of optimizing antimicrobial therapy and reducing adverse events through economically responsible methods.

Gyssens IC, van den Broek PJ, Kullberg BJ, Hekster Y, van der Meer JW. In summary, management of serious infections is a balance between optimizing empirical therapy for individual patients, which consistently has been shown to improve outcomes, and reducing unnecessary antimicrobial use, which may contribute to antimicrobial resistance.

The initial management of sepsis and septic shock involves a number of coordinated efforts, including aggressive resuscitation, identifying causes and pursuing source control, optimizing hemodynamics, glycemic control, and timely initiation of empiric antimicrobial therapy.

The clinical diagnostic approach to common infectious disease problems in the CCU is the underlying theme in the book. Emphasized throughout is the importance of formulating an accurate early presumptive clinical syndromic diagnosis which is the basis for selecting optimal initial antimicrobial therapy in the CCU.

An alternate paradigm is offered that suggests that has substantial implications for optimizing antimicrobial therapy in septic shock. This model of disease progression suggests the key to significant improvement in the outcome of septic shock may lie, in great part, with improvements in delivery of existing antimicrobials and other anti.

An intervention to optimize antimicrobial therapy was performed when antimicrobial agents had been prescribed for more than 14 days. We then compared antimicrobial utilization using the defined daily dose (DDD) per patient-days, as well as resistance rates in selected organisms in the intervention phase to the previous month period.
