Week 7 Discussion

The posts/references must be in APA format.

Please review the clinical case study below and answer the questions that follow:

Clinical Case Scenario:
A 7-month-old boy presents with an erythematous, confluent, slightly raised, and scaly rash on his cheeks; and his extremities are also covered with a fine papular rash.

The family history is positive for bronchitis. The infant’s weight is at the 75th percentile, and the height is at the 50th percentile. Vital signs are normal. The physical examination is normal, except for the presence of the rash.

Questions

1: What are the characteristics of papulosquamous eruptions? Be thorough and descriptive.

2: What are the common conditions associated with papulosquamous eruptions in children? List at least 3 common conditions and include the pathophysiology of each condition.

3: What are the appropriate treatments for common papulosquamous eruptions? Why?

What developmental milestones are expected at this age

 Week 8 Discussion

The posts/references must be in APA format.

Please review the clinical case study below and answer the questions that follow:

Clinical Case Scenario

An 11-month-old girl, well-known to your clinic since birth, arrives for a well-child visit. The parents report that their baby drags her legs rather than crawling on both hands and legs. They are concerned that this is abnormal. The father says that the child only recently began crawling and she does not pull to a stand. You noted at her 6-month visit that she was not rolling over or sitting; previous visits were unremarkable as was the mother’s pregnancy and vaginal delivery. While examining the baby, you note that when she is held by the axillae her legs are extended and crossed (i.e. the “scissoring” posture).

1: What is the most likely diagnosis? Why?

2: What would be three differentials in this case? Why?

3: What developmental milestones are expected at this age?

4: What do you believe is your best course of action/treatment plan for this appointment? Why?

How do musculoskeletal injuries in children differ from those in adults

Week 9 Discussion

The posts/references must be in APA format.

This week’s discussion addresses pain in pediatric patients. Please review the clinical case study below and answer the questions that follow:

Clinical Case Scenario:
A 7-year-old boy has a one-week history of leg pains. He wakes up at night and cries because his legs hurt; however, during the day, he feels fine with no pain and no movement limitations. He has no history of trauma, fever, or joint swelling. The family history is negative for rheumatic or collagen vascular disease. The boy’s height and weight are at the 50th percentile for age, he is afebrile, and the physical examination is unremarkable.

Questions

1: What are 3 differential diagnoses of leg pains in school-age children? Include the pathophysiology of the 3 differentials.

2: What laboratory or radiographic studies are appropriate for children with leg pains? Explain

3: How do musculoskeletal injuries in children differ from those in adults? In terms of injury type and location.

4: How does the nurse practitioner decide the extent of the diagnostic work-up in a child with extremity pain?

5: What fractures are common in pediatric patients, and what are the ages associated with them?

6: Choosing one of the diagnoses you’ve come with; how would you treat the condition?
