Mum ... I don't feel well. I feel like I'm going to vomit again!
Michael has been vomiting, complaining of headaches, and has a high temperature ... I should take him to the hopsital.
I feel terrible!!!
Michael's symptoms are consistent with meningitis. I will administer antibiotics immediately and run diagnostic tests.
I will prescribe the antibiotic Amoxicillin for Michael, with a child's dose of 50-100mg/kg depending on his weight. This medication should inhibit the growth of the bacteria.
The nurses have kept the environment quiet, dim and calm. I have had all my questions answered and feel I'm involved in my son's care.
I will closely monitor Michael for signs of deterioration and dehydration. I will administer the appropriate medication and offer comfort and reassurance.
Our CSF sample from the lumbar puncture showed a high white blood cell count, confirming the diagnosis of meningitis.
Okay. We shall monitor Michael for at least 24 hours after he has taken the antibiotics and see if there is any progress in his symptoms.
To prevent becoming infected with N. Meningitidis: -Get vaccinated -Avoid sharing utensils, drink bottles etc -See a doctor if someone around you is diagnosed
