Current antibiotic therapy in out-patient pediatric practice
We consider the general principles of antibiotic use in children in outpatient treatment. It is emphasized that acute antibacterial drugs administration in treatment of acute respiratory diseases (ARD) and enteric infections should be limited to cases with signs of bacterial infection, which occurs not more than in 5-10% patients. Actually, 25-70% of patients with ARD receive antibiotics, which increases the risk of flora resistance and side effects, and often embarrass the diagnosis. We provide recommendations for antibiotic therapy in children with acute respiratory disease, skin and subcutaneous infections, intestinal and urinary infections in outpatient practice.
