    What's the drug?

    Advertisements



    A 2-day-old baby girl suddenly develops abdominal distention, progressive pallid cyanosis, and irregular respirations, vasomotor collapse, refused to breast-feed for the past 18 hours. If the mother was treated for a serious infection with antibiotics for 14 days up to and including the day of delivery, what is the drug?

    Hmmm...

    If not my second guess is tetracycline

    NO SUBJECT!!!

    Actually, I take that back....in my studies today, I just learned that the treatment for RSMF (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever) is Chloramphenicol. It said this was the DOC for kids over 8 AND ! pregnant women. To make matters worse (for me and this question) is that it said the next DOC would be DoxyCYLCLINE!!! SO, I guess I got this one wrong !

    I render no guess...

    a question

    Hi, Emerson, you are right. It is "gray baby syndrome" from Chloramphenicol.

    For DOC of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, truly it is Doxycline and Chloramphenicol.

    This is a question. What the physician can do if a pregnant woman got the disease of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. I think at this point, the physician need to talk to the patient everything and get the patient's consent on the treatment after she understands all the benefit for her disease and the risk for herself and the baby.

    Please tell if any opionion on it or any epxetise out there. Thank you.
