Uses of Mikastar 250 MG Injection
What is it prescribed for?
Intra-abdominal infection (IAI) describes a number of infections. It includes peritonitis (swelling of the peritoneum-lining of the abdominal wall), pancreatitis (swelling of the pancreas- an organ located behind the lower part of the stomach), diverticulitis (swelling of diverticula- one or more small pouches in the intestine), cholecystitis (swelling of the gallbladder-a small digestive organ that sits just under the liver), and cholangitis (swelling of the bile duct system). Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used to treat infections occurring within the abdomen caused by bacteria.
Pneumonia is an infection of the air sacs in the lungs (either single or both lungs). It can be bacterial and viral. Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used to treat pneumonia caused by bacteria.
Bacteremia is the presence of bacteria in the blood. Bacteria can sometimes enter your bloodstream from dental or medical procedures, or from infections. If this condition left untreated it can lead to septicemia which is an infection of the blood caused by bacteria. Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used for the treatment of bacteremia.
Bone and joint infections
Bone and joint infections occur in the bones and joints. Osteomyelitis is an infection of the bone and septic arthritis is an infection in a joint. These infections can occur due to a bone/joint injury or through blood by which bacteria, virus, or fungi invade a bone/joint. Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used for the treatment of osteomyelitis and septic arthritis caused by bacteria.
Urinary tract infections
An infection in any part of your urinary system- the kidneys, bladder, ureters, or urethra is called urinary tract infections (UTIs). UTIs are the most common infections in humans and woman are at greater risk of getting this infection. UTI’s can occur as complicated or uncomplicated urinary tract infections.
Complicated UTI’s are caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria (the bacteria may become non-responsive to more than one antibiotic) and can occur due to structural and functional abnormalities of the urinary tract. Uncomplicated urinary tract infection is an infection of the urinary tract in a healthy individual with normal and functional urinary tract and no known reasons to develop a UTI. Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used to treat complicated and uncomplicated urinary tract infections caused by bacteria.
Bacterial meningitis is an infection of meninges, the protective layer that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. It starts when bacteria get into your bloodstream and travel to your brain and spinal cord. Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used to treat bacterial meningitis.
Skin and soft tissue infections
Skin and soft tissue infections occur when the bacteria invade the skin and its supporting structures. Mikastar 250 MG Injection is used to treat all skin infections including abscess caused by bacteria.
