EP118: Antibiotics resistance and Poop Transplants.
In this episode, I start by discussing antibiotic resistance and its implications in society as well as the reasons for this increase in antibiotic resistance. We discussed the causes including easy access in developing nations over administration prescription by healthcare providers as well as providing antibiotics to prophylactically livestock. I then transition nicely into clostridium difficile infections and discussed the most likely antibiotics and the odds ratio of developing a C. difficile infection from antibiotics and then treatment for a C. difficile infection. This includes an FMT or poop transplant.
