Storyboard Text

  • 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
