It might take a bit more than a minute, but we have created a powerpoint presentation that walks through most antibiotics and helps you see how one relates to another. This is a free resource for you called Antibiotics Oversimplified. This oversimplified approach is not good enough to make therapeutic decisions from, but what is does do, is organize these drugs according to class and type of antimicrobial activity. Of course, for patient care, you should use a local antibiogram or at very least, a Sanford or Johns Hopkins Antibiotic guide. The purpose of this one minute genius is to help you mentally structure your understanding of antibiotics, bacteria and therapeutic uses.
