    Case Study #1A from Lab 12

    A 66 year old female with a history of recurring urinary tract infections and multiple antibiotic therapies presents with frequency and urgency of urination, dysuria, suprapubic discomfort, lower back pain, and a temperature of 99.2°F. A complete blood count (CBC) shows leukocytosis with a left shift. A urine dipstick shows a positive leukocyte esterase test, a positive nitrite test, 30mg of protein per deciliter, and red blood cells in the urine.

    Case Study #1B from Lab 12

    72 year old female who is diabetic and a smoker was admitted to the hospital with a leg wound that is not healing. She appears confused and anxious, has a temperature of 102°F, a heart rate of 101 beats per minute, a respiration rate of 29 breaths per minute, a blood pressure of 94/32 mm Hg, a urine output of only 110 cc for the last 8 hours, and a total white blood cell count of 2300/µL. A blood culture is taken.
