Sites of antibiotic actions

Antibiotics are the current bane of my existence. Most medical conditions there are a couple of different classes of drugs, but overall things are straight forward. Not so with antibiotics, not only are there a bunch of different classes, they all have different indications!

This is part 1 of my antibiotics doodles. This one outlines where the different commonly used antibiotics act on the cell, the class they belong to, and whether they are used mostly for Gram + (Staph, Strep), Gram -, or a little bit of both. Keep in mind that the bacterial cell in the drawing is a Gram + coccus.

Part 2 will go into a little more detail about the different classes.
