1681. Management of Hyperosmolar Hyperglycaemic State (HHS)

Table 2). Table 2 – Potassium replacement in HHS Anti-infective therapy As with all acutely ill patients, sepsis may not be accompanied by pyrexia. An infective source should be sought on clinical history and examination and C-reactive protein may be helpful (Gogos 2001). Antibiotics should be given when there are clinical signs of infection or imaging and/or laboratory tests suggest its presence.

When these risk factors are present, broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy should immediately be commenced and then modified according to culture results. Clinically non-infected wounds require neither wound culture nor antimicrobial therapy. Osteomyelitis Osteomyelitis can complicate DRFUs, increasing the risk of amputation. A positive “probe to bone” test is highly suggestive of osteomyelitis and should be performed (...) antibiotics. Clinical signs and laboratory markers typically associated with infection can be blunted or absent in people with diabetes, so should not be relied on in isolation to assess infection severity. An increase in skin pigmentation may be a sign of inflammation and/or infection in individuals with pigmented skin. Clinically infected wounds should be cultured by deep tissue swabs taken after debridement or by tissue samples, for identification of microorganisms and antibiotic sensitivities. Mild

and severe osteomyelitis are not uncommon in overlooked, untreated mandibular fractures. Prophylactic antibiotics are recommended if treatment is delayed. Penicillin, or alternatively clindamycin, are appropriate because of the disruption of the mucosa with direct communication to the underlying fracture area. 10 Definitive treatment It is beyond the scope of this article to discuss the intricacies of definitive surgical treatment. However, it is important to dispel community perception that management (...) that on presentation the patient be advised not to blow their nose or valsalva as this can produce acute facial emphysema that can be quite distressing. Similarly, air travel is not recommended for 2 weeks after this type of injury. It is reasonable considering the antral involvement of these fractures to commence a course of antibiotic therapy: 5–7 days of amoxycillin and clavulanic acid. Vision must be assessed, and if intact, referral can usually be delayed for 7–14 days. Maxillary and midface fractures Midface

1696. British Association of Dermatologists' guidelines for the management of bullous pemphigoid

antibiotics and nicotinamide (strength of recommendation D; level of evidence 4) Since the development of the last guideline in 2002 there have been no additional relevant publications regarding the treatment of BPwithantibiotics. However, antibiotics withanti-in?amma- tory effects are used widely in the treatment of BP. A German survey reported that about 10% of the dermatologists use a combination of antibiotics and nicotinamide as a ?rst-line treat- ment for BP; 45 a survey in the U.K. showed that 80 (...) % of respon- dents use antibiotics as part of their management of BP. 40 Mostly doxycycline is used in the U.K. (40%), followed by minocycline (31%) and lymecycline (19%). A total of 63% of respondents thought that antibiotics are sometimes effective, while 28% thought that they are never effective (all quoted per- centages for the U.K. survey are based on valid responses). 40 The most reported side-effect was gastrointestinal upset, fol- lowed by pigmentation and Candida infection; hypersensitivity

“ Nitrofurantoin”. Nitrofurazone is a bactericidal compound which is used as an antibiotic. Antibiotic-impregnated catheters may decrease the frequency of asymptomatic bacteriuria within 1 week. According to Tenke (2008) there is, however, no evidence that antibiotic- impregnated catheters decrease symptomatic infection. Therefore, they cannot be recommended routinely.
