INTRODUCTION Our client Mr. JM 8 years old, living in Norzagaray, Bulacan, was diagnosed with DHF II (Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever stage 2). His primary complaints are abdominal pain, headache and fever. He is a grade three student and studying at FVR elementary school. His parents are Mrs. A 33 years old and Mr. M 42 years old. Our patient was born in Korean because his parents are working on that country. Dengue Fever is caused by one of the four closely related, but antigenically distinct, virus serotypes Dengue type 1, Dengue type 2, Dengue type 3, and Dengue type 4 of the genus Flavivirus and Chikungunya virus. Infection with one of this serotype provides immunity to only that serotype of life, to a person living in a Dengue-endemic area can have more than one Dengue infection during their lifetime. Dengue fever through the four different Dengue serotypes are maintained in the cycle which involves humans and Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus mosquito through the transmission of the viruses to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. The mosquito becomes infected with the Dengue virus when it bites a person who has Dengue and after a week it can transmit the virus while biting a healthy person. Dengue cannot be transmitted or directly spread from person to person. Aedes aegypti is the most common aedes specie which is a domestic, day-biting mosquito that prefers to feed on humans. .The biggest increase of Dengue cases in the country was seen in Metro Manila, where there was an almost 200 percent increase. According to government figures 15,061 cases of the disease in the Philippines were reported in the first six months of the year. The increase in the number of dengue cases may be attributed to the constantly changing climate brought by global warming as well as congestion in urban areas. Deaths due to dengue rose to 172 compared with 115 for the first half of 2007. Metro Manila had the highest number of cases, an increase of 191 percent over the same period in 2007.World Health Organization officials earlier this year warned climate change was increasing the incidence of dengue fever and other infectious diseases in the country. There is no known cure or vaccine for dengue fever, which is transmitted by the white-spotted mosquito. The Philippines Department of Health (DOH) today reported that a total of 2,332 dengue cases has been admitted to sentinel hospitals nationwide from January 1 to May 15 this year. There were sixteen deaths recorded. Partial reports from the DOH National Epidemiology Center (NEC) indicate a 58% decrease in the number of cases this year compared with the same period last year. The NEC report also revealed that the regions with the highest number of cases were the National Capital region

(732 cases), Region 3 (307), Region 5 (268), and Region 7 (231). The ages of cases ranged from 1 month to 75 years old, with forty-six percent (535) of the cases belonging to the 1-9 years age group.

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT PSYCHOSOCIAL STAGE School Age Industry vs. Inferiority Latency (Genital Stage) Concrete Operations Phase Conventional (Interpersonal Concordance Orientation Stage) At Conventional level, person is concerned with maintaining expectations and rules of the family, group, nation, or society. A sense of guilt has developed and affects behavior. The person values conformity, loyalty, and active maintenance of social order and control. Conformity means good behavior or what pleases or helps another and is approved Societal focus. In interpersonal concordance orientation he decisions and behavior are based on concerns about others reaction; the person wants others approval or a reward. PSYCHOSEXUAL COGNITIVE MORAL


At this stage, the children begin to create and develop a sense of competence and perseverance. They are motivated by activities that provide a sense of worth. They concentrate on mastering skills that will help the, function in the adult world. Although children of this age work hard to succeed, they are always faced with the possibility of failure, which can lead to a sense of inferiority. If children have been successful in previous stages, they are motivated to be industrious and to cooperate with others toward a common goal

The stage begins around the time that children enter into school and become more concerned with peer relationships, hobbies, and other interests. The latent period is a time of exploration in which the sexual energy is still present, but it is directed into other areas such as intellectual pursuits and social interactions. This stage is important in the development of social and communication skills and self-confidence.

Cognitive development refers to the manner in which people learn to think, reason, and use language. It involves a persons intelligence, perceptual ability, and ability to process information. At concrete operations phase it solves concrete problems. The child begins to understand relationships such as size. They understand right and left. The child has cognizant of viewpoints. In this stage (characterized by 7 types of conservation: number, length, liquid, mass, weight, area, volume), intelligence is demonstrated through logical and systematic manipulation of

symbols related to concrete objects. Operational thinking develops (mental actions that are reversible). Egocentric thought diminishes. ANALYSIS Our client has reached this stage. He is a grade 3 student; through social interactions to his classmates and friends he developed a sense of pride in his accomplishments and abilities. According to our patient, he is always encouraged and commended by his parents and teachers when he did something good. By encouraging and commending a child, our client developed a feeling of competence and belief in his skills. He also stated, that his parents always letting him to do what he wants to do but within the scope of his age. Mr. JM developed a strong sexual interest in his opposite sex like his friends. According to him, during his earlier age (around 5 to 7 years old) he was solely focus on his individual needs and interests in the welfare of others. He also stated that he is always socialized to his friends and classmates during their spare time in school. Our client thinks logically about concrete events, but has difficulty understanding abstracts or hypothetical concepts. He also understands the awareness that actions can be reversed because he is able to reverse the order of relationships between categories. Our client stated that his parents always calling him as a good-boy because according to him he is always following the saying and rules of his parents.



THE SYSTEMIC CIRCULATION Major arteries (in bright red) and veins (dark red) of the system Blood from the aorta passes into a branching system of arteries that lead to all parts of the body. It then flows into a system of capillaries where its exchange functions take place. Function only: to supply materials to and remove materials from the capillaries. Blood from the capillaries flows into venules which are drained by veins. BLOOD Blood is a liquid tissue. Suspended in the watery plasma are seven types of cells and cell fragments. red blood cells (RBCs) or erythrocytes platelets or thrombocytes kinds of white blood cells (WBCs) or leukocytes Three kinds of granulocytes neutrophils 10 Veins draining the upper portion of the body lead to the superior vena cava. Veins draining the lower part of the body lead to the inferior vena cava. Both empty into the right atrium.

eosinophils basophils

Two kinds of leukocytes without granules in their cytoplasm lymphocytes monocytes

FUNCTIONS OF THE BLOOD Blood performs two major functions: transport through the body of oxygen and carbon dioxide food molecules (glucose, lipids, amino acids) ions (e.g., Na+, Ca2+, HCO3) wastes (e.g., urea) hormones heat Defense of the body against infections and other foreign materials. All the WBCs participate in these defenses


All the various types of blood cells Are produced in the bone marrow (some 1011 of them each day in an adult human!). Arise from a single type of cell called a multipotent stem cell.

These stem cells are very rare (only about one in 10,000 bone marrow cells); are attached (probably by adherens junctions) to osteoblasts lining the inner surface of bone cavities; produce, by mitosis, two kinds of progeny: More stem cells (A mouse that has had all its blood stem cells killed by a lethal dose of radiation can be saved by the injection of a single

living stem cell!). Cells that begin to differentiate along the paths leading to the various kinds of blood cells.

Diagnostic Laboratory Procedure Complete Blood Count

Date Ordered Sept. 07, 2010

`Indication or Purpose The CBC provides valuable information about the blood and to some extent the bone marrow, which is the blood-forming tissue. The CBC is used for the following purposes: as a preoperative test to ensure both adequate oxygen carrying capacity and hemostasis to identify persons who may have an infection to diagnose anemia to identify acute and chronic illness, bleeding tendencies, and white blood cell disorders such as leukemia to monitor treatment for anemia and other blood diseases To determine the effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy on blood cell production.

CONCLUSION As part of our requirement, we had learned so much in handling our client who DHF. We attained and follow certain standards and rules to promote

nurse patient interaction. With this case study, we gain knowledge that we can surely use in the future ahead. All we do to our client is the summary of what we have learned in lectures in school. We also share some information with our client like the main probable cause and the risk factors of having DHF. We do manage our time to give sufficient care to our beloved client. We believed that client is our work and we have the responsibility to attend to their needs and serve them as best as we can. We are able to provide health teaching about the proper health care to our client with DHF. We started having an interview by building trust to our client because at first, he wasnt like to share some information to us. But, as time goes by, we were able to let our client share some information that will be very useful in this case studies. VIII.
