General Susceptibility

"Pan-susceptible" isolates are sensitive to:

  •  Ampicillin

  •  Cephalosporins including first generation

  •  TMP-SMX

  • Fluoroquinolones

  •  Broader spectrum beta-lactams

May be resistant to third generation cephalosporins (ESBLs), and rarely to carbapenems (carbapenemase enzymes).

Use fosfomycin and nitrofurantoin for UTI only
