General approach to history: The history for pharyngitis is primarily to establish risk of the symptom being caused by a life threatening condition and to determine whether the patient has streptococcal pharyngitis generic 100 mg seroquel visa. This is done initially by observing the patient for signs of toxicity buy 50mg seroquel fast delivery, and listening to the quality of the patient’s voice. Following this, the time course of the illness and associated symptoms will give important clues as to whether this is infectious due to bacterial causes, infectious due to viral causes, inflammatory, or related to another disease process (such as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) Vocal Quality - Location – Where does your throat hurt? If a life threatening infection is suspected, further testing in a hospital setting might include direct visualization (epiglottis, peritonsilar abscess, palatal cellulitis, diptheria), diagnostic imaging (abscess). Patients over 15: A number of diseases and conditions can cause symptoms of pharyngitis. In patients with persistent symptoms, consider immunologic testing for connective tissue diseases. In patients with persistent symptoms and exposure to tobacco and/or alcohol referral for direct visualization might be warranted, particularly of the symptoms are associated with voice changes, weight loss, or other worrisome signs. If a life threatening infection is suspected, further testing in a hospital setting might include direct visualization (epiglottis, peritonsilar abscess, palatal cellulitis, diptheria), diagnostic imaging (abscess). Topical anesthetics such as Chlorasceptic spray help patient to tolerate symptoms until infection resolves and assist with maintaining hydration. Ingestion of fluid that is not at room temperature (either warmer or colder) is often easier for the patient. Cure rates with oral regimes dosed anywhere from every 12 to every 6 hours have been found to be equivalent. Alternative antibiotics for use with those patients who reprt allergies or have treatment failures are found in the appendix. Ingestion of fluid that is not at room temperature (either warmer or colder) is often easier for the patient. Decongestants, cough suppressants, and antihistamines are felt to be harmful in children and to have significant side effects with the potential of some symptom relief in adults. Intake should be encouraged through the use of cold beverages, ice cream, and yogurt. Enforced bed rest has been found to slow recovery and patients should be advised to increase activities as tolerated. Corticosteroids may offer some benefit to those patients who suffer from significant edema. Positive cultures should be reported and contact tracing initiated through public health mechanisms. However, it is considered unreliable in pharyngeal infections, and so patient should have a pharyngeal culture 3-5 days after treatment to confirm eradication All patients should also be treated for chlamydial infection if it has not been ruled out Gastroesophageal reflux disease: Non-pharmacologic: Patients should be instructed to avoid large meals and should not lie down immediately after eating (up to 3 hours). They should also be counseled that acidic foods, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, chocolate, onions, and garlic may exacerbate symptoms and should be withdrawn initially, they can be added back as symptoms permit. These include calcium channel agonists, alpha-adrenergic agents, theophylline, nitrates and certain sedatives. Pharmacologic: After making diagnosis, it is reasonable to start with either an H2 blocker or a proton pump inhibitor. The choice is based on previous effective and ineffective therapy and cost to patient. Once symptoms resolve, reduce dose to the lowest required to maintain patient symptom free. Antacids may be added for additional symptom relief, especially early on or when symptoms flair. Additionally, suspected malignancy should be urgently referred Gastroenterology – Suspected laryngoesophageal reflux that does not respond to conservative therapy should be referred, especially if the patient has a history of tobacco or significant alcohol use. They should be symptom free within 4 days and should return for re-evaluation if they are not. Patients with other viral, bacterial or fungal causes should be instructed to return for signs or symptoms of dehydration. Patients with infectious mononucleosis should be informed that they will continue to have symptoms for several weeks to months. They may return to full activity (including contact sports) when free of symptoms. If hepatosplenomegaly was detected, ultrasound imaging and follow-up imaging may be warranted. Patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease should be re-evaluated for reduction of symptoms within 4 weeks and resolution within 8 weeks University of South Alabama, Department of Family Medicine June 30, 2008 164 Resources for patients: Strept throat - Patient Information Handout accessed at http://www.

Incidence of nosocomial sepsis in neonates according to weight at birth, type of hospital, and presence of risk factors. Treatment is based on the immediate administration of antibiotics as soon as sepsis is suspected (empirical treatment) followed by directed antimicrobial agents according to results of antibiotic susceptibility testing for pathogens isolated from the blood cultures. Another controversial issue is the remo- val of the catheter in the presence of sepsis. As in case of neonatal sepsis of ver- tical transmission, complex supportive measures may be required (vasoactive drugs, me- chanical ventilation, hemoﬁltration procedures, etc. Currently, nosocomial infections are the leading cause of mortality in Neonatology Ser- vices4. In the study of «Grupo de Hospitales Castrillo», 78 deaths in 662 newborns with nosocomial sepsis (11,8%) were recorded. Considering the frequency and mortality of nosocomial infections, maximal efforts should be directed to prophylaxis and in this respect, a large number of preventive strategies have been recommended, including early withdrawal of antibiotic treatment when infec- tion is not conﬁrmed, implementation and surveillance of cleaning and/or sterilization protocols of diagnostic and/or therapeutic material, achievement of an adequate number of health care personnel, and large enough facilities to prevent overgrowth and permanen- ce of pathogen organisms26-28. However, adequate washing of the hands before manipulation of neonates26-28 and the use of clean and sterile material are the most effective measure to prevent contamination of the infant by pathogen organisms. Although all these measures are very impor- tant, they would not be sufﬁciently effective if the health care personnel is not convinced through periodic informative session that nosocomial infections can be and should be avoided as well as how to prevent them.

This relative hypoxia may be responsible for the increased erythropoietin content with resultant increased number of reticulocytes in newborns at birth. The compensatory mechanisms of such hypoxic condi- tion are increased number of erythrocytes, increased concentration of fetal hemoglobin with decreased oxygen afﬁnity, and relative tachycardia. Within 72 hours of birth erythro- poietin is undetectable, while reticulocytes count decreases signiﬁcantly. The placenta contains approximately 100 mL of fetal blood 25% of which enters the new- born in 15 s of birth if newborn when delivered is placed bellow the level of placen- ta, while 50% of placental blood riches the newborn by one minute1, 2, 3. Therefore umbi- lical cord clumping affects the blood volume in newborns, which can be increased by up to 15%. Delay in cord clamping of 2 minutes could help prevent iron deﬁciency at 6 mon- ths of age, when iron-fortiﬁed complementary foods could be introduced4, 5, 6. Delaying cord clamping by 30 to 120 seconds, rather than early clamping, seems to be associated with less need for transfusion and less intraventricular haemorrhage6. It is estimated that blood volume in term infants is around 50 to 100 ml/kg, mean 85 ml/kg1, 2, 3. The blood volume in preterm infants is slightly greater than in term newborns due to an increased plasma volume, while the erythrocyte mass expressed in ml/kg is the same as in term newborns1, 2, 3.
