Abstract: Ciprofloxacin 400 mg bid IV leads to inadequate AUC/MIC and C(max)/MIC ratios in many cases. Effective killing concentrations were only achieved in pathogens with MIC less than 0.25. As bacteria in intensive care unit patients often exceed this threshold, we recommend to use higher doses of ciprofloxacin (1200 mg daily) to ensure optimal bacterial killing and avoid antibiotic resistance.
