Meningitis: The initial treatment, as a single agent, of meningitis in children and immunocompetent adults when presumed or proven to be caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b, Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus pneumoniae or Enterobacteriaceae pending culture and sensitivity results.

Surgical Prophylaxis: The preoperative administration of a single 1 g dose of ceftriaxone may reduce the incidence of postoperative infections in patients undergoing vaginal or abdominal hysterectomy or cholecystectomy in high risk patients, surgical procedures which are classified as contaminated or potentially contaminated and patients undergoing coronary artery bypass surgery. Although ceftriaxone has been shown to have been as effective as cefazolin in the prevention of infection following coronary artery bypass surgery, no placebo controlled trials have been conducted.

Susceptibility Testing: Before instituting treatment with ceftriaxone, appropriate specimens should be obtained for isolation of the causative organism and for determination of its susceptibility to the drug. Therapy may be instituted prior to obtaining results of susceptibility testing.
