Thank you for asking Mr XXXXX!
Geriatric age with such presentation is most likely a pneumonia infection. On off chills
and bone aches might be due to different etiology most commonly anxiety
issues and second afterwards due to UTI.
All you need right now is a supportive treatment for it which includes.
-Analgesia and antipyretics
-Intravenous fluids (and, conversely, diuretics) if indicated
-Monitoring – Pulse oximetry
with or without cardiac monitoring, as indicated
-Positioning to minimize aspiration risk
, including treatment with bronchodilators and N -acetylcysteine
-Suctioning and bronchial hygiene – Pulmonary toilet may include active suction of secretions, chest physiotherapy, positioning to promote dependent drainage
, and incentive spirometry
to enhance elimination of purulent sputum and to avoid atelectasis
-Ventilation with low tidal volumes (6 mL/kg of ideal body weight)
-Systemic support may include proper hydration, nutrition, and mobilization to create a positive host milieu to fight infection and speed recovery. Early mobilization with encouragement to sit, stand, and walk when tolerated, speeds recovery.
A concomitant UTI assessment by Urine routine exam is advised too.
Get to your pumonologist and let them sort it out for you.
Take care and don't forget to close the discussion please.
