Microbiological Phrases for the short of memory

So despite years of trying to learn tables of resistance profiles and antibiotic mechanisms (and trying to teach them this way) I’ve written down the way I’ve managed to remember something about antibiotic – little pearls of wisdom that microbiologists/seniors have trotted out at opportune times at the bedside/wardround, which, when uttered, earn a small nod of acknowledgement.  eg. “Hmm… should we add in metronidazole?” “Well, co-amoxiclav has decent anaerobic cover, but metronidazole will get into any abscess better”.  Funny, as mostly I’m a diagrams sort of person

If any proper microbiologists see this and have corrections to make, or suggestions, please let me know!
