Antibiotics that can penetrate pancreas mnemonic


There are only a few antibiotics that can penetrate infected pancreatic necrosis, a complication of acute necrotizing pancreatitis. These are carbapenems, quinolones and metronidazole.

How do I remember these antibiotics? Mnemonic!

Remember the antibiotics that can "Fly, take a Car or a Metro" to the pancreas.

Fly: Fluoroquinolones
Car: Carbapenems
Metro: Metronidazole

That's all!
Quote for the day: Once a person is determined to help themselves, nothing can stop them.
