Dear colleagues,

I'm a specialist in Infectious Diseases in a 900 
beds university hospital and I'm trying to make 
guidelines for residents in the Emergency Room to 
help them in managing infectious diseases.
I'm looking for criteria to decide when to perform 
blood cultures, blood analysis; when it is safe to 
give patients oral antibiotherapy and send them 
back home. I'm aware of the SCAPS score as well as 
guidelines when to hospitalise patients with 
pneumonia, but I'm seeking easier decision trees 
possibly efficient to manage most patients admitted 
for fever. Does somebody have any idea about these 
criteria, personal experience in guiding non 
infectious diseases specialist physicians in the 
treatment of infectious diseases, or where I could 
find some information about that topic ? Thanks in 

Clevenbergh Ph., M.D.
