IV amoxycillin+clavulanate available – uses in intra-abdominal infection – new guideline

We’ve previously counselled against augmentin overuse in a number of conditions which did not, however, include intra-abdominal infection where the new availability of an IV preparation offers us a way of reducing the use of the workhorse antibiotic piperacillin+tazobactam.

Here is our freshly minted guideline which also provides more explicit advice about short or no course antibiotic therapy in a number of situations.   The guideline is current for the John Hunter Hospital, adults. A paediatric version is in the wings.
