IV Antibiotics

  • Intravenous antibiotics can overcome many of the drawbacks involving oral agents. The concentration of antibiotic in many cases is more stable.
  • The antibiotic is not affected by variables in the gastrointestinal tract because it bypasses and directly enters the bloodstream. Absorption problems are minimized. Since some of the infection is in the surrounding bone a higher concentration of medicine is necessary.

 

  • Intravenous induction will increase the concentration and can be sustained over longer periods of time. The use of multiple antibiotics at the same time helps to insure a broader spectrum of action, thus attacking many forms of bacterial infections simultaneously.
  • With the wide range of intravenous medications available it is easier to select the correct combination without worrying about stomach upset problems.

 

Patients who can benefit the most from IV therapy include those who have:


1.         Not responded to traditional oral antibiotics including decongestants and steroids.
2.         An unsuccessful surgery with ongoing sinus infection.
3.         Other debilitating illnesses that an ongoing infection could worsen such as diabetes, kidney disease, lung conditions (such as asthma or chronic bronchitis), or a compromised immune system (such as leukemia, lymphoma, or AIDS).
4.         Refused surgical treatment, yet have persistent and severe sinus infections.
5.         An advanced form of sinusitis where the infection has entered the bone as well as the cavity within the bone.

When to consider IV antibiotic therapy:


Non-Surgical: When patients choose not to have surgery or have had an
unsuccessful surgery with persistent infection.
Pre/Post Surgery: The patient receives IV therapy two weeks before surgery and
4-6 weeks afterwards.
Post Surgery: IV therapy can help promote healing and treat infection in mucus
membranes and the bone.
