Antibiotic Prophylaxis

Antibiotic prophylaxis is a preventive measure used to reduce the risk of infection caused by certain bacteria. It involves taking antibiotics before certain medical procedures, such as surgery, to reduce the risk of developing infections. Prophylactic antibiotics help prevent infections by killing or reducing the number of bacteria that can cause infection. They also help to reduce the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which can cause serious, sometimes life-threatening illnesses. Antibiotic prophylaxis is an important tool for medical professionals to protect their patients from the potential risks of certain medical procedures and to help protect the wider population from the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
