Antibiotics for implantable assist devices
Posted By Heather on January 23, 1998 at 11:39:52:









I am a pharmacist at University of Michigan Medical Center working with our cardiothoracic service.  We are evaluating our antibiotic usage for different types of procedures.  What antibiotics are you using post-operatively for implantable assist devices (e.g Heartmate)?  How long are you continuing antibiotics after surgery if patients show no signs of infection?  I appreciate any information you can share with me.  Thank you.
