Episode 119: STOP-IT Trial with Rob Sawyer

In this 119th episode I welcome Dr. Robert Sawyer to the show. Dr. Sawyer was the PI on the STOP-IT trial comparing a short course of antibiotics versus a longer course for complicated intraabdominal infections. We discuss the trial, the outcomes, and what the future of antimicrobial management in the surgical ICU may look like.

  1. So cool. Last time hearing Dr Sawyer was as a SICU anesthesia resident at UVA a bunch of years ago. Congrats on the trial, greetings from a fan in Cville, thanks for an awesome podcast, and go hoooos!
