Antipseudomonal antibiotics mnemonic

Hope you're having a good day!

"CP cover Crazy Pseudomonas."

Cephalosporins (Like Ceftazidime, cefepime, cefoperazone, cefpirome)
Ciprofloxacin (Fluoroquinolones)
Carbapenems (Meropenem, Doripenem)
Polymyxin B
Piperacillin tazobactam (Anti pseudomonal penicillins)

I also remember that antibiotics that have the letters "AZ" cover Pseudomonas.
So - AZtreonam, CeftAZidime, CefoperAZone, Piperacillin tAZobactam.

Random fact: Aminoglycosides like gentamicin, tobramycin, amikacin are active against P. aeurginosa and are used as adjunctive antibiotics.

That's all!
