Project #105937 - discussion board

1. Mr. Bowers has the flu and an oral temperature of 101º F. Describe the physiological purposes of fever.

2. Ms. Spinosa is unconscious and has an intracranial pressure (ICP) of 30 mm Hg as a result of a closed head injury. What is the most important index of neurological system functioning in this patient? Explain the process of increasing ICP and discuss possible complications if the pressure is not decreased.

3.Two individuals come to the emergency room with head injuries. One, age 25, has just been in a motor vehicle crash (MVC) and has a temporal lobe injury. The other, age 65, has increasing confusion after falling earlier in the week. How would you differentiate clinically between the individual with an epidural hematoma and the one with a subdural hematoma? Which one of these individuals requires priority surgical treatment?

4.A young child is being evaluated by her pediatrician for an upper respiratory infection. The pediatrician asks the mother if she has been giving the child any acetaminophen during this illness. The mother states that she has not, but she is giving the child aspirin instead. The pediatrician instructs her to discontinue the aspirin immediately and to use only acetaminophen. The mother asks you to explain the rationale for this.
