selja Posted December 6, 2020 Share Posted December 6, 2020 I’m looking for advice/ protocols on antibiotic prophylaxis for chest drains in babies with pneumothorax.The Cochrane review was last updated in 2012. we recently treated a baby with spontaneous bilateral pneumothorax. we inserted pod tails bilaterally and chose not to give antibiotics. Do any of you routinely prescribe antibiotics in term newborns with no risk factors for sepsis, but on chest tubes, MV, sufentanyl and a urinary catheter ? Can any of you share their protocols ? please share your experience. many thanks, 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
