Brief description Ineffective antibiotic therapy is associated with increased mortality in infected patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Early administration of efficacious antibiotic therapy improves survival substantially. This work seeks to extend upon my previous studies that have described the different concentrations of antibiotics between ICU patients and non-ICU patients. Predicting when to change antibiotic doses in ICU patients is likely to substantially improve patient outcomes.
