Comparison of Antifungals

Yeasts, Endemic Fungi , Moulds Yeasts

3= great. Use an antibiotic empirically if it is a 3.

2.5 = the best we got, but I sure wish we had better. OK to use empirically as we do not have any other choice.

2= adequate if susceptible, use with caution (ie know what you are doing and local susceptibility patterns) but do not rely on it empirically if you do not have susceptibilities.

1.5 = if it is susceptible its great, but is almost never susceptible.

1= no way dude. You want a dead patient?

"?" = looks good in a test tube

"." = placeholder pending data

Moulds 3= great. Use an antibiotic emperically if it is a 3.

2.5 = the best we got, but I sure wish we had better. OK to use emprically if we do not have any other choice.

2= adequate if susceptable, use with caution (ie know what you are doing and local susceptability patterns) but do not rely on it emperically if you do not have susceptabilities.

1.5 = if it is susceptable its great, but is almost never susceptable.
