Hello, I just need to bring all of this information into a introduction, body sections and conclusion. The answers have already been answered just need help putting it all together. Thanks How to prepare/submit your response: There are several steps to writing answers to a case study assignments: Step 1: • Read the case thoroughly and make sure that you have understood the case. • Understand what each assignment question is asking you to do Step 2: • Identify the issues in the case study. • An important part of your answer is to analyze the situation and identify the issues described in the case. Step 3: • Link theory to practice by using your knowledge of existing theories and or other professional documents to decide what was done appropriately and what was not. Make notes on these. Step 4: • Plan you answer. • It may be useful to use the questions you have been set as headings and to answer each part in turn, reducing the chance of omitting the set questions. • Questions are set in a logical order, so answer in the order they are written in your question. Step 5: • Start writing your case study answers. • For answering group discussion/assignment at the end of Part I and III, you will need an introduction, body sections in which you answer the questions put to you regarding the case study, and a conclusion. Step 6: • Edit and proof read. • Use the spell checking tool on your computer and then read through your paper yourself to detect and correct other errors and omissions. • Check you have answered all of the questions and backed up your answers with relevant literature. • Check that you have acknowledged all sources of information correctly and that all your references are in your reference list. How to submit your response: • Please adhere to the overall instructions above. Follow STEP 5 exactly as instructed. • Once completed, save your document in Microsoft Word. Case Study Part I – The PA 1. List the various activities Margo engaged in from which she may have a bacterial pathogen? Margo engaged in various activities that could have led to a bacterial encounter. Margo is moving from one state to another that has very different temperatures – this means she may not have any built up immunity to bacteria in her new home. Margo unpacked all her items herself and managed to stub her finger in the process. Any bacterium or dust that had been in the air or any of the furniture she had moved had free access to her open wound. Afterwards, with no suggestion that she bandaged the wound, she went swimming, which is commonly known as an area of bacteria if not properly taken care of. After her swim, she went and got a massage and a manicure. The nail salon isn’t quite the ideal place to go with a deep wound on your finger. 2. What is cellulitis? Name some infectious agents that are often implicated in the development of cellulitis? Cellulitis is defined as “a common, potentially serious bacterial skin infection” of the subcutaneous membrane. Staphylococcus and Streptococcus bacteria are often implicated as a common cause of cellulitis. 3. List the variety of pathogens which Bactrim is typically used to treat. Bactrim is used to treat “ear infections, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, traveler's diarrhea, shigellosis, and Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia” as well as Enterobacteriaceae, Haemophilus influenza, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. 4. Given Margo’s vital signs and history, are there any factors that might in a complicated recovery? Having diabetes might complicate her recovery as it has a direct effect on how the body functions and recovers form illness. Margo is a 65-year-old woman. Her age can affect her recovery as people’s immune system weakens with age, which could cause difficulty healing and fighting off infections. Margo’s heartrate is also slightly lower than the average resting heart rate for an adult. Margo’s heartrate should have been slightly elevated due to her illness and being in pain, which means that her actual resting heartrate is much lower. While this may not affect the recovery on its own, the medical practitioner should monitor how she reacts to medication and make sure her heart rate does not fall too low. Group Discussion/ Assignment Cellulitis is usually caused by staph- or streptococcus and in Margo’s cause streptococcus could not be the causative agent because the Bactrim prescription would have cured the infection. The most likely agent which caused Margo’s cellulitis infection is staphylococcus aureus. Margo most likely came into contact with this organism either at the pool or the nail salon. Though not common, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus (MRSA) is known to be spread at nail salons, leading to infections on hands and beneath fingernails. MRSA can be spread through the sharing of un-sanitized nail files or other nail implements. These implements should be soaked in a disinfecting solution for a minimum of 10 minutes and then treated with a sterilizing agent. However, nail salons do not always follow sanitation procedures. Symptoms usually appear within 24 hours. Patients with MRSA usually experience pain in their hands and are unable to bend or use their fingers with any degree of comfort. The swollen, red skin around the infected area will crack open and ooze pus. Kim Finer states, “…but after five days the wound continued to swell, her pain had increased, and moving her finger had become difficult.” Work Cited Bactrim (Trimethoprim and Sulfamethoxazole) Drug Information: Clinical Pharmacology - Prescribing Information at RxList.
