“broad-spectrum antibiotics” is way to general for this card. I was actually pimped on this exact concept by an attending.

AMBOSS for those without access
“Treatment for Community-acquired infection AND no recent exposure to broad-spectrum antibiotics is first-line: 3rd-generation cephalosporin IV, preferably cefotaxime alternative: oral ofloxacin”

“Healthcare-associated infection,
suspected resistant pathogen,
AND/OR recent exposure to broad-spectrum antibiotics = First-line: piperacillin/tazobactam
PLUS one of the following:
Daptomycin if known previous VRE infection or colonization
Vancomycin if known previous MRSA infection or colonization [25]
Alternative for patients with current or recent exposure to piperacillin/tazobactam: meropenem PLUS vancomycin”

IV albumin is adjunctive therapy indicated in all patient with SBP especially with cirrhosis
