1.Is there any additional subjective or objective information you need for this client? Explain.I would ask Mr. JD if he took any herbal or over the counter medications recently and if anything, improve the symptoms. I would inquire about smoking history, past or present medical history. I would ask if he has any wheezing, sorethroat, shortness of breath, headache, dizziness, and ear pain. The most common reported symptoms for cigarette smoking are cough, followed by throat irritation, headache, and dizziness (Ruiz, Graff, and Yan, 2015). 2.Would you treat Mr. JDs cold? Why or why not? Yes, I would prescribe antibiotics due to the greenish postnasal drainage, swollen and red turbinates’ and frontal sinus tenderness.Mr. JD might have a common cold which may be caused by a virus, that has been complicated by a possible bacterial sinusinfection. Antibiotics may be indicated for possible bacterial sinus infection.A commoncold begins to improve after three to five days however, the symptoms of bacterial sinus infection tend to dwell, lasting longer than 10 days without improving (Woo and Robinson, 2015). Both symptoms can be treated with antibiotics.3.What would you prescribe and for how many days? Include the class of the medication, mechanism of action, dosage, route, the half-life; how it is metabolized in and eliminated from the body; and contraindications.
