Author(s): Dr. Sowmya K
Abstract: The effectiveness of antimicrobial treatment in reducing UTI s is well established. But Studies have demonstrated wide variation in utilization of antimicrobial treatment, including inappropriate selection of agents, improper timing of administration, and excessive duration of treatment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and establish an antibiotic protocol for UTI’s in our hospital setting. We would be performing a culture analysis of urine to identify the presence of infection in the renal unit, which will guide us for antibiotic usage. Hence, we are trying to establish an antibiotic protocol for UTI without compromising on treatment, and to avoid excessive duration of antibiotic treatment. But the knowledge is lacking in the field of OBG and to find the appropriate treatment in pregnant females and the normal females is a challenge in itself.
