1781. Prevention of infection after induced abortion

the use of prophylactic antibiotics for surgical abortion in the first trimester. For medical abortion, treatment-dose antibiotics may lower the risk of serious infection. However, the number-needed-to-treat is high. Consequently, the balance of risk and benefits warrants further investigation. Perioperative oral doxycycline given up to 12 h before a surgical abortion appears to effectively reduce infectious risk. Antibiotics that are continued after the procedure for extended durations meet (...) the definition for a treatment regimen rather than a prophylactic regimen. Prophylactic efficacy of antibiotics begun after abortion has not been demonstrated in controlled trials. Thus, the current evidence supports pre-procedure but not post-procedure antibiotics for the purpose of prophylaxis. No controlled studies have examined the efficacy of antibiotic prophylaxis for induced surgical abortion beyond 15 weeks of gestation. The risk of infection is not altered when an intrauterine device is inserted

. Clopidogrel: Withhold for 5 days before the procedure. 4. Aspirin: Do not withhold. 5. Low molecular weight heparin (therapeutic dose): Withhold one dose before the procedure. Antibiotic Prophylaxis Patients undergoing gastrostomy placement are often at increased risk for infection secondary to poor nutritional status, advanced age, comorbidi- ties, and immune compromise. Factors that increase risk for infection are patient-related (eg, diabetes, obesity, malnutrition, chronic steroid admin- istration (...) ), technique-related (eg, transoral technique vs transabdominal technique or failure to provide antibiotic prophylaxis), and external bolster traction–related. The incidence of peristomal infection following percuta- neous transoral tube placement ranges from 5.4% to 30.0% (32). The majority of infections ( 70%) are minor (32,33). Major infections re- quiring speci?c medical or surgical therapy are rare, involving fewer than 1.6% of cases (33). A metaanalysis of 11 prospective randomized trials (34

1783. Labor induction abortion in the second trimester

. Acute cervical infection or pelvic infection is a relative contraindication to performing surgical abortion until antibiotic treatment has been started, whereas labor induction techniques can be started immediately. However, a serious pelvic infection may be associated with impaired uterine contractility, which can limit the effectiveness of induction methods.

of skin and soft-tissue infections (SSTIs) in the era of community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA)? SSTIs For a cutaneous abscess, incision and drainage is the primary treatment (A-II). For simple abscesses or boils, incision and drainage alone is likely to be adequate, but additional data are needed to further define the role of antibiotics, if any, in this setting. Antibiotic therapy is recommended for abscesses associated with the following conditions: severe or extensive disease (eg, involving multiple (...) is unknown. Empirical coverage for CA-MRSA is recommended in patients who do not respond to β-lactam therapy and may be considered in those with systemic toxicity. Five to 10 days of therapy is recommended but should be individualized on the basis of the patient's clinical response. For empirical coverage of CA-MRSA in outpatients with SSTI, oral antibiotic options include the following: clindamycin (A-II) , trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) (A-II), a tetracycline (doxycycline or minocycline) (A-II

1788. Endoscope Disinfection - a Resource-Sensitive Approach

Detergents with or without enzymes, and detergents containing antimicrobial substances, can be used for endoscope cleaning. Use of nonfoaming detergents is recommended. Foaming can inhibit good fluid contact with device surfaces and prevent a clear field of vision during the cleaning process, with a risk of injury to personnel. The detergent selected should effectively loosen organic and nonorganic material so that the flushing action of the detergent fluid and subsequent rinsing water removes (...) contain antimicrobial substances that reduce the risk of infection to reprocessing personnel, but they do not replace disinfection. • Enzymes generally function more effectively above room temperature (> 20– 22 °C) and should be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. 3 Endoscope disinfection 3.1 General procedures Endoscopes should be disinfected in dedicated rooms by trained staff at the beginning and at the end of each patient list, as well as between patients.
