For example, this can occur before surgery, to prevent infection during the operation, or for patients with immunosuppression who are at high-risk for dangerous bacterial infections. Bacterial targets[ edit ] Antibiotics are often grouped by their ability to act on different bacterial groups.
Although bacteria are biologically classified using taxonomy , disease-causing bacteria have historically been classified by their microscopic appearance and chemical function. The morphology of the organism may be classified as cocci , diplococci , bacilli also known as "rods" , spiral-shaped or pleomorphic.

Additional classification occurs through the organism's ability to take up the Gram stain and counter-stain ; bacteria that take up the crystal violet dye stain are referred to as "gram-positive," those that take up the counterstain only are "gram-negative," and those that remain unstained are referred to as "atypical.
The most commonly encountered groupings of bacteria include gram-positive cocci, gram-negative bacilli, atypical bacteria, and anaerobic bacteria. For example, 1st-generation cephalosporins are primarily effective against gram-positive bacteria, while 4th-generation cephalosporins are generally effective against gram-negative bacteria.
Empiric antibiotic therapy[ edit ] Main article: Empiric therapy Empiric antibiotic therapy refers to the use of antibiotics to treat a suspected bacterial infection despite lack of a specific bacterial diagnosis. Definitive diagnosis of the species of bacteria often occurs through culture of blood, sputum, or urine, and can be delayed by 24 to 72 hours. Then, the most likely bacterial species for this type of infection are identified for lobar pneumonia in healthy adults: S.
Lastly, an antibiotic or group of antibiotics are chosen that are reliably effective against the potential species of bacteria for example in lobar pneumonia, levofloxacin covers the majority of relevant bacteria.
Clinicians often aim to choose empiric antibiotic combinations that cover all appropriate bacteria but minimize coverage of inappropriate bacteria, as to reduce the incidence of antimicrobial resistance see below. Narrow-spectrum antibiotics have been shown to be just as effective as broad-spectrum alternatives for children with acute bacterial upper respiratory tract infections, and have a lower risk of side effects in children.Skip Navigation.
