5. The student in #4 had similar symptoms during the winter last year but, at that time, also had nausea and vomiting. Because the two conditions were so similar, why do you think the student wasn’t protected from getting this condition again? Because the infection took place in different locations of the body. During winter, his infection most likely affected his gastrointestinal tract. Also, it may be possible that he did not complete his antimicrobial treatment. If the infection is not completely eradicated, some resistant organisms stayed in the system and will develop in the future. 6. From the symptoms described in #4, which phase or period of infection do you think the student is demonstrating? Describe the characteristics of that period. Phase of Infection: Acute period. Based on the symptoms and signs described, the student had been ill for days and decided to seek medical help because he did not seem to improve. During the acute period the infectious disease develops fully. The signs of the disease are more noticeable and adverse effects in the body occur. The onset of a specific infection may be insidious with a prolonged prodromal period, or sudden or acute with the clinical signs appearing quickly with severe manifestations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
