I live in the southeastern part of the US, and we are beginning to see more and more patients with ESBL infections- all that I know of have been of the E. Coli type.
Are you seeing an increase in your neck of the woods? most of the data I am finding on this is coming from Great Britain- it looks like it is starting to hit us here, and will become the new MRSA.
What do you all know about ESBL? What ABTs are you finding to be the most effective? What kind of patient teaching are you doing?
I'd love to hear from those of you who have been dealing with this.
