Abx and kidney failure

Recommended Posts

Ok, time to ask. I've seen a couple of older folks, 70 to 90, with renal failure. None have them have been terribly complicated, came in with urinary retention or UTI, not septic, not admitted. I get concerned at that age and would some guidance on treating their UTIs. What are the upper levels of BUN and creatinine before I need to adjust their antibiotics doses? Is there a particularly safe antibiotic to use as outpatient therapy? Discussed it with attendings but still didn't get numbers to hang my hat on for next time.
