TX based on
Get cultures on front end and then start antibiotic asap
- likely pathogens, local susceptibility trends, and patient specific factors, (allergies, organ dysfunction)

aminoglycosides enter through where?
Give what with if treating gram + bacteria
enter through pores in gram negative cell wall
Have to give with betalactam if gram + so it can break down cell wall first.
aerobic gram negative, give with cell wall agent if gram +
clindamycin (above the belt) does not work on
what abx stains contact lenses orange and makes body fluids orange
do not use rifampin alone, it is only used alone ______
