Does azithromycin have a role in cesarean sections?
Does azithromycin have a role in cesarean sections? Yes, adding azithromycin to the usual antibiotic protocol in nonelective c-sections reduces infections. But not everyone can take advantage of it. PRACTICE CHANGER: Prescribe a one-time dose of azithromycin 500 mg intravenously, along with standard antibiotic prophylaxis, at the time of cesarean delivery to prevent postoperative infections.
