The use of antibiotics in upper respiratory tract infection.
Aust Fam Physician. 1983 Aug; 12(8):585-7.AF

Abstract

The current literature is surveyed for evidence on which to base policies for prescribing antibiotics in upper respiratory tract infections. Moderation is recommended in the prescribing of antibiotics for sore throat in adults. Antibiotic treatment of otitis media and sinusitis is appropriate only when severe infection is likely. It is concluded that there is a need for further controlled trials in Australian general practice to provide data on streptococcal disease in children, to determine carrier rates and when to treat.
