Endocarditis

PulmCrit (EMCrit)
PulmCrit - April 25, 2019 - By Josh Farkas
"Endocarditis is a classic disease of emergency medicine, inpatient medicine, and critical care. The opioid epidemic has caused a surge of endocarditis diagnoses, reminding us of the myriad ways that this disease can present itself. However, diagnosis remains challenging, as patients with endocarditis may manifest with wholly different presentations (e.g. one patient with a stroke, another patient with cardiogenic pulmonary edema, and a third with septic shock). This chapter focuses a bit on the selection of empiric antibiotic therapies, which is admittedly a grey area (one which most guidelines tend to shy away from)."
