routine, and if possible avoid group care for children, especially during cold and flu season. Anythoughts? Great post!Response ThreeLiza Komorowskiweek 4 inner earThe tympanic membrane is also called eardrum, is positioned on the inner front among the outerear and the middle ear. This membrane vibrates in response to sound waves and these vibrationsare communicated to the cochlear of the inner ear of theauditoryossicles. A buildup of pus inthe tympanic cavity, can result in the otitis the pressure on the eardrum and decrease its abilityto vibrate, and response to sound waves. At times the tympanic membrane will break because ofotitis media.Theossicles (also called auditory ossicles) From the eardrum to cochlea, are three bones ineither middle ear they are Incus, stapes and the malleus is also called the hammer. Thepurpose to convey vibrations of the tympanic membrane towards the cochlea. Pus buildup in thetympanic cavity can delay movement, and ergo their ability to function.The auditory tube is attach to the nasopharynx and to the tympanic cavity of the middle ear. Thistube is typically closed, but releases when swallowing. This movement allows for thepreservation of equivalent air pressure on each side of the eardrum. Because of otitis theauditory tube can develop clogged with pus, or to inflamed when it’s open. The tympanic cavityair pressure, and the exterior air pressure resulting causing pain and impede with hearing.Ventilation tube forms as opening among the tympanic cavity, besides the exterior ear canal. Toensures identical pressure on both sides of the tympanic membrane, even in the absence ofauditory tube.Children that are bottle feed generally are positioned in a horizontal while being fed. Theposition influence the motion of the formula from the pharynx into the auditory tube and to thetympanic cavity. The presence of these fluids in the tympanic cavity influence germ’s expansion.Hello Liza,Even though children with this infection can get treated very easily, there are some otherthing physicians must consider when prescribing medication to children with this infection. Suchas amoxicillin is the antibiotic of choice unless the child received it within 30 days, hasconcurrent purulent conjunctivitis, or is allergic to penicillin; in these cases, clinicians shouldprescribe an antibiotic with additional beta-lactamase coverage, clinicians should reevaluate achild whose symptoms have worsened or not responded to the initial antibiotic treatment within48-72 hours and change treatment if indicated, and clinicians should recommend pneumococcal
conjugate vaccine and annual influenza vaccine to all children according to updated schedules.Any thoughts? Great post!
