Week 5 Discussion

Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotic resistance continues to be a serious and legitimate concern in medicine and the community.

Address one of the following, Patient A or Patient B, and respond to the prompt:

Patient A

Patient A is a 14-year-old boy accompanied by his mother to your clinic after several days of sneezing, coughing, and headache. You determine it is likely viral sinusitis. His mother is insistent you prescribe an antibiotic today. What education would you provide to the patient and parent?

Patient B

Patient B is a 34-year-old female, with no prior medical history, who arrives to your clinic today for symptoms of rhinitis, fatigue, sore throat, and occasional cough. She is afebrile and symptoms have been ongoing for 6 days. You determine its likely a viral infection. Discuss the relevant pathophysiology explaining any of the symptoms for this patient. What aspect could treatment modify?

Due Monday

Compare and contrast your responses with one classmate or respond to your faculty member.
