According to the World Health Organization, antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health today.
What is antibiotic resistance?
Antibiotic resistance means that bacteria have become resistant to the antibiotics designed to kill them.
Bacteria, not humans or animals, become antibiotic-resistant. These bacteria can infect humans and animals, increasing the difficulty of treating bacterial infectious diseases, according to the ARS (Antibiotic Resistance Surveillance).
As a consequence, antibiotic resistance leads to higher medical costs, prolonged hospital stays, and increased mortality. Nowadays, we are having an acceleration of this problem due to the misuse and overuse of antibiotics.
How to treat bacterial infections?
RAMPmedical helps doctors to understand what treatment is the optimal one based on the bacteria the patient has in four steps:
Enter the relevant patient details.
The algorithms that run behind the RAMPmedical software help to know which bacteria probably causes the infection.
The software adapts the result to the patient characteristics and shows the optimal treatments for this case.
Choose the best therapy for your patient.
Finally, the World Health Organization recommends to explain to your patients how to take antibiotics correctly, what antibiotic resistance is, and the dangers of misuse.
