Infective Endocarditis Information card
The wallet cards inform the at-risk patients as well as their dental professionals that there may be a need for IE prophylaxis prior to procedures such as dental extractions. Even if the patient is already receiving secondary antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent ARF recurrence, they will still need IE prophylaxis prior to certain invasive procedures. The cards, together with the A3 posters announcing the existence of the cards, were developed collaboratively between the Cairns & Hinterland HHS Oral Health Services, Cardiac Services and the statewide Rheumatic Heart Disease Program, Queensland.
