Conjunctivitis causes irritation, itching, foreign body sensation, and watering or discharge of the eye. Most cases in adults are probably due to viral infection, but children are more likely to develop bacterial conjunctivitis than viral forms. The main bacterial pathogens are Staphylococcus species in adults, and Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, and Moraxella catarrhalis in children.

Acute Asthma and Other Recurrent Wheezing Disorders in Children

Clinical Evidence Handbook
American Family Physician - July 15, 2013 Volume 88, Number 2
Número: 2862 / Publicado em 18/01/2015 - 17:34

Not all acute wheezing is caused by asthma or bronchospasm, particularly in children younger than 2 years. If bronchodilators do not improve symptoms, alternative diagnoses (e.g., infection, foreign body) should be considered. Although no evidence exists to support the use of oxygen in acute asthma, it is known to be effective and should be administered when oxygen saturation levels fall below 94% in all cases of acute asthma.

Número: 2861 / Publicado em 11/10/2020 - 19:56

A trombose venosa profunda é uma entidade clí­nica potencialmente grave, responsável por elevada morbimortalidade. A ecografia vascular representa o método propedêutico de escolha no diagnóstico e acompanhamento dos pacientes com essa doença. Entretanto, várias questões permanecem controversas, tais como a abordagem inicial do paciente com suspeita de trombose venosa profunda, os tipos de protocolo a serem usados, o tempo para a realização do exame e a trombose no plexo de panturrilha. O objetivo dessa revisão é discutir esses assuntos à luz dos conhecimentos atuais.

A panel of national experts was convened by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) to update the 2005 guidelines for the treatment of skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs). The panel recommendations were developed to be concordant with the recently published IDSA guidelines for the treatment of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections. The focus of this guideline is the diagnosis and appropriate treatment of diverse SSTIs ranging from minor superficial infections to life-threatening infections such as necrotizing fasciitis. In addition, because of an increasing number of immunocompromised hosts worldwide, the guideline addresses the wide array of SSTIs that occur in this population. These guidelines emphasize the importance of clinical skills in promptly diagnosing SSTIs, identifying the pathogen, and administering effective treatments in a timely fashion.
