Klebsiella pneumoniae

General Susceptibility

Empiric options:

  • Ceftriaxone

  • Cefepime

  • Zosyn

  • Carbapenems

Narrow therapy based on susceptibilities. Can use Bactrim or Fluoroquinolones if susceptible for most infections. Use fosfomycin or nitrofurantoin for UTI only, when confirmed susceptible.

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