Appropriate culture and susceptibility studies should be performed to determine susceptibility of the causative organism to ANCEF.
Perioperative Prophylaxis The prophylactic administration of ANCEF preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively may reduce the incidence of certain postoperative infections in patients undergoing surgical procedures pacjage are classified as contaminated or potentially contaminated e.
The perioperative use of ANCEF may also be effective in surgical patients in whom infection at the operative site would present a serious risk e. The prophylactic administration of ANCEF should usually be discontinued within a hour period after the surgical procedure. In surgery where the occurrence of infection may be particularly devastating e.

Therefore, it is important to consider this diagnosis in patients who present with diarrhea subsequent inser the administration of antibacterial agents. Treatment with antibacterial agents alters the normal flora of the colon and may permit overgrowth of clostridia.
After the diagnosis of pseudomembranous colitis has been established, therapeutic measures should be initiated. Mild cases of pseudomembranous colitis usually respond to drug discontinuation alone. In moderate to severe cases, packag should be given to management with fluids and electrolytes, protein supplementation, and treatment with an oral antibacterial drug clinically effective against C.
