iHuman Case Study _ Katherine Harris iHuman Case Study: Katherine Harris V3.1 PC 1. Do you recommend limited or involved the use of antibiotics in the treatment of these diseases and other unco... nfirmed bacterial illnesses and why? What are the standards regarding the use of antibiotics in the pediatric population, and what assessment findings would warrant prescribing an antibiotic for Asthma symptoms? Asthma is a reversible respiratory chronic condition which involves inflammation of the airways, increased mucus production and edema, that may trigger coughing, shortness of breath and wheeze. it can be a lifestyle limiting health condition with no cure but requires close monitoring and adequate management of the symptoms. Childhood asthma, on the other hand, has been classified by most treatment guidelines as mild, moderate and persistent, depending on the severity and persistence of the symptoms, of which differ in the type of medication that is recommended for the management of the symptoms (Baan et al., 2018). a diagnosis of asthma was made based on the findings from the pulmonary function tests that were conducted on Katherine Harris. According to the CDC, the triggers of asthma include indoor or outdoor allergens, medications, mold, pets, exercise, infections, pets and tobacco smoke among others. The clinical report recommends that clinicians should use the most appropriate diagnostic criteria for pediatrics before deciding on what medication to prescribe. For instance, certain instances as acute bacterial sinusitis, pharyngitis, and acute otitis media will benefit from antibiotic therapy. The guideline by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that acute otitis media be diagnosed based on the evidence of two main condition, that is, evidence of middle ear effusion, which is demonstrated by a moderate to severe bulging of the tympanic membrane or a new onset of otorrhea which is not attributable to otitis externa. However, patients who display more severe symptoms, bilaterally involved and of young age have a higher likelihood of benefiting from antibiotic therapy. Watchful waiting is recommended for older patients with mild symptoms which are unilaterally involved. Consequently, antibiotic therapy is also recommended for cases involving acute bacterial sinusitis with symptoms which have persisted for more than 10 days or worsen as a result of a new onset of daytime cough, nasal discharge or fever after the improvement of a typical viral upper respiratory tract infection (Sheldon, Heaton, Palmer, & Paul, 2018). Diagnostically confirmed pharyngitis with β-hemolytic GAS also require antibiotic therapy appropriately prescribed in terms of dosage and frequency for the shortest time possible. Using antibiotics excessively or inappropriately leads to antibiotic resistance which makes it hard to treat other infections in the future. 2. Using national guidelines and evidence-based literature, develop an Asthma Action Plan for this patient. The action plan for this patient will include the daily treatment, long term control of asthma, how to deal with a worsening state of asthma or an attack, and when it is necessary to seek medical attention in the course of treatment (Tesse et al., 2018). - - - - - Continued [Show More]
