Administration of AntiBiotics

The administration of an antibiotic depends largely on the clinical picture, the condition of the patient, and the availability. Most antibiotics can be given orally and parenterally. Modern beta-lactams (many penicillins and cephalosporins) and aminoglycosides have to be injected because they are not absorbed in the intestine. Only a few substances (phenoxymethylpenicillin, norfloxacin, oral esters of ampicillin) are not available in parenteral form. Antibiotics can be divided into several groups according to their absorption.
