pediatrics test 3

  1. Bacterial meningitis-
    • brain tissue affected,
    • oAseptic- caused by virus or secondary disorder-lymphoma, brain diseases
    • oSeptic- bacterial, neisseria,
    • oTubercular- covers meninges (brain and spinal cord membrane coverings)
    • o Bacterial- most deadly, seen more in boys, give haemophilus influenza type B (HIB) vaccine within 4 hours – 7 days, direct spread-otitis media, bacteria caused are HIB, pneumococcus, meningococcus microorganism. Passes through the blood, direct contact or droplet are ways to catch it, happens around meninges, subdural ; hydrocephalus or subdural effusion, affects 6 months to 12 months, very contagious, S/S infant-poor sucking, poor eating, hypo and hyperthermia, stiff neck, S/S infant and child- seizure activity,
    • fontantel bulging, fever, poor feeding, restlessness, N/V, high pitch cry, lethargic; nuchal rigidity- early sign in child and adolscent, HA, kernig sign(+)- laying down knees at chest, brudzinski sign (+)- neck stiffness, “passive flexion on one side of neck copies other side” , photo sensitivity, seizure activity, increase cranial pressure, diarrhea, decreased level of consciousness(late sign), rashes, petechiae hemorrhaging under skin to large ecchymoses, vomiting, joint pain, fever,
    • decrease appetite, irritability, seizure is late sign; severe cases- neck retraction(arching of neck), and the back, deadly sign- “ostistmytonis”; DX: lumbar puncture C&S, glucose level in CSF is decreased below 45mg/dl,
    • increased CSF- color is cloudy and purulent;
    • o Normal levels of CSF- luek. 0-5 cells, protein 14-50mg/dl, glucose 45-100mg/dl, color is clear; abnormal: WBC: TNTC, increased protein, decreased glucose
    • o TX: emergency IV antibiotic- 3rd and 4th generation-broad spectrum for over 2 months of age (ex: ceftazidime,
    • ampicillin+ gentamicin(cheaper together)), isolation- must have written orders, for CSF: dilatin- give it by itself, monitor dilatin levels, syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone hypersecretion(SIADH) develop- check serum osmolarity, urinalysis, fluid restriction; can develop hydrocephalus, pheumbitis, nosocomial infection, “deremote reaction”, subdural effusion, septic arthritis, DIC, pericarditis, can be prevented by HIB vaccine but does not protect kids under 18 months
