Perioperative use of antibiotics in elective surgical patients: timing of administration.
J Perioper Pract. 2009 Jul; 19(7):225-7.JP

Abstract

The practice of perioperative antibiotics administration in relation to surgical incision was analyzed in 525 elective surgical patients at St Vincent University Hospital, Dublin. 82.86 % (435) patients received the perioperative antibiotics before surgical incision was made and 17.14 % (90) patients received it after the surgical incision was made. The issue of timely administration of perioperative antibiotic should be included in the surgical time out to improve compliance in this regard.
