    Transcript

    00:00 Let's take a look at the most common antibiotics for uncomplicated UTIs. I keep focusing on uncomplicated UTIs because that's what you're going to see the most of in your practice.

    00:13 Now, three of the most common are nitrofurantoin, that's a nitrofuran. Huh, look at that one.

    00:21 I always take a shortcut and say it TMP-SMX, right. That's a combination of a sulfa drug and a reductase inhibitor. Now, fosfomycin is in its own class all by itself. So it's this novel class of antibacterial drugs that have a chemical structure that is unrelated to other known antibiotics. So, this slide is where we're spending some time with letting those drug names sink in because these are the most common ones that you'll see used in your practice. Now, look at the chart for sensitivity and resistance. You see on the left-hand side you have the list of the names of the antibiotics. The right-hand column has got numbers and letters.

    01:09 Okay, remember that "S" stands for sensitivity, "R" stands for resistance.
