Ep156: Tuberculosis Follow-up Care

Play Episode

A nurse is caring for a patient who has tuberculosis. The patient is just completing a 9-month regimen of medication as part of treatment for the condition in which he responded well. Which describes the most appropriate follow-up that the patient would need?

This is one of the most commonly missed questions in our database of over 3,000 NCLEX® questions.  In this episode I explain the rationale and the basics of TB (tuberculosis) treatment and some of the medications that you need to know . . . including their side effects (INH and Rifampin).
