Antiinfectives/IV fluids/blood products

Anti-infective medications are commonly referred to as antibiotics.
Antibiotics are effective against many types of bacteria.
Antibiotics are not effective against any viral infection.
For antibiotics to be effective against a bacterial infection they must be taken on time and until the prescription (Rx) is completed.
If this procedure is not followed, the infection can remain, and the possibility of a resistant strain of bacteria can be created.
Bacteria are identified by using a staining technique.
Bacteria that stain pink are called gram negative.
Bacteria that stain violet are called gram positive.
Broad spectrum antibiotics are effective against a variety of different types of bacteria.
Antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of an influenza vaccination.
