Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Is there more info required
really sorry about your dad
Do you require more information?
wait a moment please
So the main issue now is the MRSA infection, is that right?
No he has not been taken off the ventilator, he is still sedated and now has MRSA
Yes I understand
Since the last op he is being sedated
The MRSA is over and above his condition
How are his vitals and his kidney function at the moment?
Do you have any info on that?
MRSA and his condition is the issue.
Blood Pressure is find. Kidney function test was high around 18 and he is on "Dopemine"
The intestine feed is going better from yesterday
His condition certainly is critical but he is in good hands
Oh yes they also mentioned his albumen count on bloods were low yesterday
They are doing pretty much everything that there is for him.
Albumin count low is something that can happen due to infection.
Can he recover from this
Yes there is a good chance that he will recover.
The reason why I say that is because all the issues are reversible and treatable.
They say they want to ween him off th ventillator first, then drop the sedation slowly because of his age. The MRSA is a concern
MRSA will be treated with the drugs that he is on.
Meropenem is a very powerful antibiotic.
But it does take time especially in elderly patients.
Got to run will be back
Let me know when you are here.
are you there?
anything else you would like to add or ask?
