  • Transient bacteremia can result after dental procedures or brushing of teeth. (readtiger.com)
  • The optimum timing of appropriate antimicrobial administration is the first 48 hours after non-critically ill patients arrive at the ED. As bacteremia severity increases, effective antimicrobial therapy should be empirically prescribed within 1 hour after critically ill patients arrive at the ED. (biomedcentral.com)
