VisualDx Differential Helps NP Student Convince Doctor to Test for Flu

influenzasympti.pngBeth L., an NP student at University of South Alabama, tells her story when she saw a young patient. Despite an initial diagnosis, the student uses VisualDx to convince the doctor to test for a different disease. Her suspicions were correct.

"I am an NP student, and I work as a nurse. I was caring for a pediatric patient one day. The child came in with nausea, vomiting, and fever, and diagnosed with viral gastroenteritis. After talking with the parents more and searching Visual Dx, I asked the doctor if we could test for flu due to additionally discovered symptoms and timeline. The child had the flu and was put on droplet precautions. Thanks VisualDx!"
