SEVERE ANAEMIA IN A CHILD WITH UNTREATED MALARIA, A CASE STUDY, 2014


Presented by: Yefon Blandine
Supervised by: Mr Mor Betrand
General supervisor: Dr Mfonfu Daniel

A case study report is submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of higher national diploma (HND) in nursing at the end of three years of studies in nursing. This case study was carried out at the Regional Hospital Bamenda from 27 October to 5 December 2014. It was presented to the jury in April 2015. The mother of this child was travailing by train from Garoua (from the North Region) to Bamenda (to North West Region of Cameroon) when the child developed malaria that consequently resulted in severe anaemia.


The goal of publishing this case study in the internet is to show an excellent management of a severe anaemia in a child when the child enters the good well established health system in Cameroon.

The specific objectives are to show
i.                    The effect of auto medication
ii.                  The weakness in the provision of health care facilities in long distant train journey.
iii.                The inadequate education of mothers on prevention of malaria during a cross country journey
iv.                The weakness of the mother not consulting at Yaound√© before continuing to Bamenda
v.                  The prompt consultation of the mother at Bamenda in the health system
vi.                The quick reaction and management of an acute illness within the good health system
vii.              The modest contribution of our students in case report writing; we hope to constantly improving on writing case report.
In CAPITOL the case study is always an opportunity for us to appreciate the good qualities of health care in the health system; identify some weaknesses; and propose recommendations for improvement at all levels.
