Why does a healthcare provider tell you to keep your fingernails cut short?

Dr. Stephen Perret

Germs!: Fingernails are a notorious haven for many types of bacteria that can get trapped underneath them even if someone is careful to wash their hands often. For that reason, doctors advise and often themselves ensure that their fingernails don't grow too long and create opportunity for bacteria to catch a free ride.

It's because this...: ...Is not a knowledge issue. Almost everyone on the planet knows how not to be fat but we desire those things that tend us toward obesity more than not being obese. It's a choice issue to a very large extent (even in those with a genetic propensity). Here's another one: why does more than half of all respiratory therapists i've ever known smoke?

Cefixime is good: Multidrug resistant gonorrhea is rare, but on the rise. If you are not better after cefriaxone, have your doctor do a culture, instead of a rapid tests, and ask the lab to test for antibiotic susceptibility. In large studies, Cefixime resistance is very rare but not impossible. So far, all gonorrhea has been sensitive to something. Overuse of antibiotics is probably the cause of this problem.

How is the drug ceftriaxone being transport to the CNS by iv? Thanks

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Peter Scivoletti
Internal Medicine 47 years experience
Transport is unclear: The transport of drugs into the CNS after IV administration is very complex and not fully understood. The blood brain barrier, which has a protective function, is difficult to cross. So the answer to the question is unknown. A good discussion of this subject can be found in clinical microbiology reviews, october 2010 vol23., no.4 pg 858-883.
