IV. Medical treatment and management inclusive procedures and its implication to nursing
A. Medical Treatment
Chloramphenicol 150 mg Iv q 6 hours
B. Management including procedures and its implication to nursing
Vital signs assessment
-Every 2 hours to check or monitor the function of the body, general and note
progress on the patients condition.
Positioning the patient to more comfortable position
-To facilitate comfort and relaxation of the patient and to facilitate easy breathing of
the child.
Physical examination
-To establish nursing diagnosis and interventions and to determine the general health
status of the patient. It is also done to detect some abnormalities or deficiencies.
Macroscopic examination:
Color: Yellow
Transparency: Slight turbid
Reaction: Acidic
Specific gravity: 1.015
Sugar: Negative

Microscopic Examination:

Epithelial cells: Moderate
Prater/ PO4: Occasional
Mucous Thread: Occasional
WBC/ Pus Cells: 1-3
RBC: 0-1
Bacteria: Occasional

-The result is normal. Urinalysis provides baseline data about the patients health. It is performed
to assess the abnormal substances which- has accumulated in the urine.

Hematology Test
Results Normal Values
Hematocrit 0.68 0.42-0.53
Hemoglobin 226 g/L 155+/- 20g/L
WBC count 21.6 x

/L 5-10 x

Platelet count Adequate 150-450 x

-The result of the hematology test of the patient indicates elevated hematocrit and hemoglobin
which signifies dehydration and polycythemia, also may signifies that there is an increased
volume of cell in 100 ml of blood. It also increases white blood cell count which indicates

Radiologic Result
-Perililar haziness is noted in both lungs
-Heart is not enlarged however appears globular shape
-bones are intact

Schillings Differential Count
Result Normal Values
Neutrophilic Segmenters 0.91 0.43-0.76
Lymphocytes 0.06 0.17-0.41
Monocytes 0.03 0.04-0.10
RBC Morphology: Mostly normocytic, normochromic

-The schillings differential count of the patient indicates an elevated neutrophilic segmenters
which may signifies acute bacterial infection, tumor inflammation, stress or drug reaction. Also
indicates decreased lymphocytes and monocytes which may signifies aplastic anemia, leukemia,
systemic lupus erythematosus and immunodeficiency and usage of corticosteroidsmof
medications. This test is used to measure the 24 hour urinary excretion of labeled vitamin B12
and to document decrease absorption of vitamin B12.

VII. Evaluation and Implication of the Study to:

A) Nursing Practice:
The hope and intent of the study was to boolster or repute current interventions
currently done by the nursing profession and it seeks to validate, what is currently done to
intercede and may be an avenue providing and finding various types of intervention of care

My patient is Limuel Amistad, male, 1 year and 10 months old and was admitted last
February 11, 2012at 3:05 PM due to vomiting. He was diagnosed to have acute
gastroenteritis with moderate dehydration and acute bronchopneumonia and has a congenital
heart disease; transposition of great vessels, pulmonary HPN, and patent foramen oral.
I managed my nursing interventions by means of vital signs taking and recording,
rendering bedside care, monitoring IV replacement therapy, do bronchial tapping, promoted
rest and comfort, attended to needs, seen at intervals and ensured safety. I also encouraged
the care provider to give warm fluid to the child and also for the mother to give child foods
rich in vitamin C. I also give health teaching regarding the proper care of a child suffering
from acute gastroenteritis and acute bronchopneumonia.

B) Nursing Education:
Through this study, some of my questions regarding the disease especially acute
bronchopneumonia and acute gastroenteritis was answered. It broadens and appends my
knowledge about the condition, most especially the causes and factors associated to the
development and occurrence of the said disease. It also enhances my communication and
interaction skills, same as through with provision of comfort, care and therapeutic

C) Nursing Research
Researchers done on the past regarding the treatment of acute gastroenteritis and
acute bronchopneumonia are still being utilize at the hospital at present. The nurse should
study research finding and utilize it in practice. It will also serves as a baseline for
promoting treatment and recovery of the patient.
In relation to this case, I want to dig deeper on the ff:
Possible complications of the condition if left untreated
Incidence and occurrence of the condition among pedia.
Nature of the problem
