Transcript

  • 1. Speaker O.P.D. Nurses Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (U.R.T.I.)
  • 2. Tonsillitis Is the inflammation of the tonsils that can be acute, sub-acute, and chronic due to causative factors affecting it.
  • 3.
    • Acute tonsillitis can either be bacterial or viral in origin. Subacute tonsillitis is caused by the bacterium Actinomyces . Chronic tonsillitis, which can last for long periods if not treated, is mostly caused by bacterial infection.
  • 4.
    • Tonsils are made –up of adenoids tissue that secretes lymphocytes that help in fighting against systemic infection of the body.
  • 5. Causative agents:
    • Bacteria (streptococci, staphylococci)
    • Virus (Adenovirus, mononucleosis)
    • Spirochetes
    • Treponema
  • 6.
    • Causative factors enter the upper respiratory tract via nose and mouth
  • 7. Enters the nose and mouth causing inflammation to the tonsils.
  • 8. Signs and symptoms are;
    • Sore throat as referred pain to the ears
    • Painful or difficult swallowing (Dysphagia)
    • Crouch coughing
    • Headache, fever, chills
    • Red swollen tonsils with pus
    • Swelling and tenderness of the submandibular glands
  • 9. Diagnostic procedures:
    • Buccal swab for Culture & sensitivity test to identify streptococci and staphylococci infections
    • Complete blood count for elevated white blood cells & lymphocytes
  • 10. Incubation period:
    • Acute Tonsillitis is 72 hours.

  • 39. Signs and symptoms:
    • 1.Hoarseness of voice due to distortion of the larynx during vibration of sound production.
    • 2.Loss or weakness of voice.
    • 3.Tickling sensation and rawness of the
    • throat.
    • 4.Dry, sore throat.
    • 5.Dry cough.
  • 40. Diagnostic procedures:
    • 1. Laryngoscope confirmed exudates,
    • redness and inflamed larynx.
    • 2. Biopsy of the larynx.
    • 3. Culture and sensitivity swab to identify the causative agent.
  • 41. Incubation period:
    • Acute laryngitis is 72 hours.
    • Sub-acute laryngitis is 2-3 days.
    • Chronic laryngitis is 4-10 days.
    • Recurrent laryngitis is 2-3 weeks.
  • 42. Treatments:
    • Steam inhalation
    • Rest / no talking to relax larynx
    • Increase fluids to dehydrate larynx
    • Saline gargle, mouth wash if needed
    • Analgesics
    • Antipyretics
  • 43.
    • Antibiotics
    • Corticosteroids
    • Acid reflux medication
    • Heart burns treatment
    • Provide communication pads
    • Anticipate patient needs instead of asking
    • Maintain air humidification
  • 44. Complications:
    • Cancer of the larynx
