Respiratory tract infections RTI's - Adult and pediatric cases

NOTE: Respond to each Forums separately with citations Peer Responses: Students are required to respond to at least two

(2) other student’s initial postings (and the instructor) with significant comments that have substance. Students should collaborate with fellow learners, relating the discussion to course concepts, add several innovative ideas, and provide considerable additional insight that relates to core concepts. Peer responses should include at least two

(2) of the following components: Offering advice; posing a question; providing an alternative point-of-view; and acknowledging similar experiences. Peer responses should be engaging and informative with good substance (just stating “I agree…” is not acceptable).

Your responses should contribute in a meaningful way to helping advance our knowledge of the topics the class explores. Your responses to another’s work should be posted as a sub-thread to the student’s original posting of whom you are commenting. FORUM 1 Please respond to Forum 1 with 1 citation

This week I will be talking about a study that covers a study that goes over both adult and pediatric cases of RTI's which are respiratory tract infections and weather or not they are needed to be tested for things like Influenza. The article that I choose covers things from more of a management standpoint and talks about how it will not really change how a provider will go about treating a patient regardless of what the test states when it comes to these signs and symptoms.

That being said this was during a time before Covid-19 where we would treat this as a normal infection with out the concern that it could be something more serious like Covid. The article covers an algorithm that talks about what types of symptoms should be tested for Influenza and which patients do not require testing.

I believe that this would be a tertiary prevention method as it is taking place during the actual time the symptoms are present. The prevention that is taking place would be a screening process to determine which patients need to be tested for influenza and which ones do not as well as the medications administered to treat the respiratory tract infection.

By using the algorithms set forth in this case study it has led to fewer patients being exposed to drugs that where unneeded due to being tested for the proper respiratory infection. Overall I feel that this study truly works and is accurate, working in the medical field I have used similar ways to determine what methods I would treat my patient and it leads to the same if not similar outcomes.FORUM 2 Please respond to Forum 2 with 1 citation

Identify the disease that is being studied and what type of prevention method is being evaluated (i.e. primary, secondary, or tertiary).
The disease that’s being studied is Chikungunya fever.Secondary prevention method is being used for this evaluation.Describe what the prevention method is.It could be a new screening method, vaccination, drugs, or other intervention.

The prevention method is a vaccine.The CHIKF vaccine candidates would provide protection before infection.Who was in the study population(s)/sample(s)?

The studies population consisted of animals most notably mice. What was the conclusion of the study?

There are many vaccine candidates that are promising but due to their being no possibility of re-infection that there’s no interest in the production of a vaccine.Do you believe the study to be reliable and valid?Why or why not?

I believe the study to be reliable due to the scientists mentioning the difficulty in getting a phase 3 clinical trial.This means they’re going trying to produce a safe vaccine through proper channels.What recommendation(s) did the researcher offer for future studies?

The researcher recommended improved surveillance, the development of protocols for rapid development, alternative routes to licensure and sustained partnerships between governments and health care organizations.
