can I ask a basic question..
can I add a question... can a newborn of an MDR patient be a candidate for BCG vaccine...? thanks
and; if a child of an MDR patient shows signs and symptoms suggestive of TB, X-ray shows pneumonia, with Negative Rapid Diagnostic Test, what would be the next test that needs to be done or what management can we give?
I am working with the DSTB and monitors various health stations, this is very relevant to me so I will be able to inform the dos and donts in providing BCG vacs in the Health stations.. Most TB patients are very silent about thier treatment, healthcare staff in the community wont be able to assess because of the large populations. In this matter I will be able to remind them the importance of assessing mothers with previous or ongoing treatment in other dots facilities before giving vaccines.
