Please see the FDA safety warning (May 2015) concerning dose confusion/medication errors associated with Zerbaxa

Reps will be promoting a new IV anti-infective, ceftolozane/tazobactam (Zerbaxa).

Ceftolozane/tazobactam is approved for complicated UTIs (cUTIs) and intra-abdominal infections (cIAIs) in adults...and higher doses are still being studied for ventilator-associated pneumonia.

Think of it as primarily covering gram-negative bacteria...including Pseudomonas and ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae.
