    What's the drug of choice for Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella, and Shigella spp? Ampicillin. Note those are all G+.
    What are the two penicillin-derived drugs that are extended spectrum for pseudomonas infections? Which one is first line and which one is more potent? - Ticarcillin (and its derivatives; Timentin) -- 1st line
    - Piperacillin (and its derivates w/ tazobactam; Zosyn) -- this is the broadest spectrum.
    What is the DOC to treat Clostridium Perfringens? what does this bacteria cause? Penicillin G. Bacteria causes gas gangrene.
    What is the DOC to treat treponema pallidum? What condition does the bacteria cause? Penicillin G
    Bacteria causes syphilis.
    What is the DOC to treat Listeria Monocytogenes sepsis and meningitis? ampicillin
    What is the DOC to treat MRSA? Vancomycin
    What is the DOC for surgical prophylaxis? Why? How is it administered? - Cefazolin
    - By injection
    Used b/c of high bone penetration, and because it's a good alternative to anti-staph penicillins in penicillin-allergic patients.
    What is the first line agent used to treat mixed intra-abdominal infections by Bacteroides? Cefoxitin (2nd Gen)
    What are the two first line agents used to treat H. influenzae infections? Ceftriaxone (3rd)
    Cefotoxime (3rd)
    Cephalosporins are the go-to drugs to treat meningitis except for meningitis caused by what bacteria? Listeria monocytogenes.
    What is the first line agent used to treat Clostridium tetani infections? Vancomycin.
    Which two cephalosporins are the first line agents used to treat Neisseria gonorrhoeae? - Ceftriaxone (3rd G)
    - Cefixime (3rd G)
    What cephalosporin is the first line agent used to treat Typhoid Fever due to salmonella? Ceftriaxone (Rocephin; 3rd G)
    What are the three first line agents used to treat penicillin-resistant pneumococci? Ceftriaxone (3rd G)
    Cefotaxime (3rd)
    What are the five first line agents used to treat systemic pseudomonas aeruginosa infections? Ticarcillin
    Ceftazidime (3rd)
    Cefepime (4th G)
    How do you treat antibiotic-induced enterocolitis d/t Staph or C diff? Why? - w/ Vancomycin PO
    - Because it's poorly absorbed orally and will therefore be very active against the G+ bacteria in the intestine causing the colitis.
