[ash] :(
[ash] just not my day
[sanz] anyway, if the pt just meeds monotherapy - give ceftazidime or cefepime
[sanz] if not improving or not stable... add gentamicin
[dua_frank] Apraxia is a syndrome reflecting motor system dysfunction at the cortical level, exclusive of primary motor cortex.
[sanz] if hemodynamically unstable or pt has long lines, add vanc
[dua_frank] ok sanz
[sanz] that's it
[ash] thanks sanz
[dua_frank] start cephs, then gentamicin
[dua_frank] then vanco

[samantha] there are 2 types rt?
[dua_frank] i think maybe galactokinase def does not have hypoglycemia
[dua_frank] yes
[dua_frank] one is galactokinase def and the other galactose 1 phosphate uridyl transferase
