    to identify exactly what is needed to treat the bacteria

    a broad spectrum antibiotic
  6. What are some ideal characteristics that should be in the antibiotics

    • amphotericin B
    • miconazole
  13. 2 mechanisms that work against the bacteria
    • bactericidal - kills quickly
    • bacteriostatic - slow death
  14. What is a nosocomial infection?
    hospital acquired infects
  15. How do clients acquire nosocomial infections?
    • clients have decreased resistance
    • immunocompromised before they come in
    • staff not using good universal protection
  16. What are some nosocomial infections?
    • Staph (skin & lungs)
    • Pseudomonas (lung & wounds)
    • Proteus (wound and UTI)
  17. What are some things that need to be know about the bacteria to be treated?
    • type of pathogen (C&S)
    • site of infection
    • defense mechanism of host
  18. What are the defense mechanisms of the host?
    • age
    • nutritional status
    • immunoglobulin
    • organ function
    • circulation
  19. How does age have to do with defense mechanism of the host?
    Very young and elderly are most effected. Elderly usually have decreased renal and hepatic function
  20. How does nutritional status effect the defense mechanism of the host?
    vit c and protein necessary for health cells
  21. How does immunoglobulin effect the defense mechanism of the host?
    if in renal or liver failure, not producing immunoglobulin
  22. How does the organ function effect the defense mechanism of the host?
    liver produces immunoglobulin
  23. How does ciruclation effect the defense mechanism of the host?
    • heart is not working enough
    • inside arteries are clogged with cholesterol
    • years of hypertension and the body stops sending blood to the toes and other non-essential parts.
  24. What are some ways to solve the problem with bacterial resistance?
    • increase research
    • appropriate drug use
    • HAND WASHING by healthcare
    • quick id and isolation of pt
    • education
  25. What are some antibiotic resistant microorganism?
    • Methicillin Resistant Strephylococcus Aureus MRSA
    • Penicillin resistant Streptococcus (PRSP)
    • Vancomycin Resistant Enterococci (VRE)
    • Vancomycin Resistant Staph Aureus (VRSA)
  26. Adverse reactions of antibacterials
    • Allergic reactions
    • superinfections
    • organ toxicity
  27. Pharmacokinetics of antibacterial?
    • excreted via kidneys
    • absorbed through the GI tract
    • must penetrate the bacterial cell wall in sufficient amounts
    • be able to bind to the bacterial cell
    • distribution
    • half life
    • elimination
