Antifungals in VLBW - Cochrane review and Commentary

Stefan Johansson

Recommended Posts

Here - an interesting commentary by Roger Soll on the Cochrane review update on "Prophylactic Systemic Antifungal Agents to Prevent Mortality and Morbidity in Very Low Birth Weight Infants"


Published in Neonatology and with open access, free to read for all! I quite his take-home message below.



Just because something works does not mean you have to use it...


...careful infection control procedures are a better way of combating invasive fungal infections in extremely preterm infants...


...The neonatal community must commit to the most basic of appropriate care in order to minimize these risks, not resort to expensive and potentially harmful drug therapy.
