Clinicians may find the following guidelines useful when treating patients with Enterobacter infections of central lines, heart valves or prosthetic joints:

  1. The Infectious Diseases Society of America's (IDSA) guideline on the management of infected central lines. [65]  This guideline is currently under revision and hopefully will be release soon.
  2. The American Heart Association's (AHA) guideline on the diagnosis and management of infective endocarditis. [66]
  3. The IDSA's guideline on the diagnosis and management of prosthetic joint infections. [67]

Additionally, the IDSA recently published guidance for treating antimicrobial resistant gram negative pathogens with a focus on ESBL producing and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales as well as Pseudomonas aeruginosa with difficult to treat resistance patterns. [35]
