Antimicrobial prophylaxis for paediatrics and obstetrics-gynaecological surgery
Key words: Antibiotic Prophylaxis, Paediatric surgery, Obstetrics and gynaecological surgery, Guidelines
Surgical Site Infection (SSI) is one of the most common healthcare associated infections (HAI). A correct prophylactic administration of antibiotics to surgical patients is able to reduce the incidence of SSI, minimising adverse effects. The selection of the procedures for which prophylaxis is indicated as well as the appropriate type of antimicrobial agent, timing and dosage have to be supported by evidence of effectiveness. The aim of this work is to provide evidence-based procedures for antimicrobial prophylaxis in a hospital with paediatric, obstetrics and gynaecological surgery (IRCCS Burlo Garofolo, Trieste, Italy). The international literature on surgical prophylaxis and local, national and international guidelines have been revised, with particular regard to specific paediatric data and recommendations.
