The use of >14 Defined Daily Doses (DDDs) of antibiotics in the 3 months prior to CDI had the strongest association with CDI (OR 8.50;95% CI 4.56–15.9).

Should antibiotics be given? Recommendation Evidence Level Strength Rationale for the recommendation Erythromycin should be given for 10 days following the diagnosis of PPROM, or until the woman is in established labour (whichever is sooner) 1++ A A Cochrane review found benefits when antibiotics were administered: reduced chorioamnionitis, prolonged latency and improved neonatal outcomes Recommended by NG 25 A Cochrane review investigating the role of antibiotics for women with confirmed PPROM found (...) that the use of antibiotics is associated with a statistically significant reduction in chorioamnionitis (RR 0.66, 95% CI 0.46–0.96). There was a significant reduction in the numbers of babies born within 48 hours (RR 0.71, 95% CI 0.58–0.87) and 7 days (RR 0.79, 95% CI 0.71–0.89).
