Should Antimicrobial Doses be Fixed? Weight Weight….Don’t Tell Me! Thursday, September 26, 2019, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CT

One out of three adults in the United States are obese but the most optimal approach to antibiotic dosing in this population remains controversial. For antibiotics that are weight-based, selection of the best body size descriptor is often unclear when managing a patient that is obese. Likewise, concerns exist whether a “once-size-fits-all” dosing regimen is sufficient for a patient that is obese. This webinar will provide a historical and contemporary perspective on the definition of obesity and body size description. The pharmacologic approach to initial and maintenance dose selection will be reviewed to harmonize current divergent approaches. Patient case and drug case scenarios will illustrate pragmatic methods of informing antibiotic dose selection in obesity.
