TBE Meningococcal Disease Influenza Smallpox
 


  Treatment

Bacterial meningitis and septicemia are treated with antibiotics, which are also given to immediate family members and anyone else who is in close contact with the person who has the disease. Chemoprophylaxis (taking antibiotics, even if you do not experience any symptoms) should be offered to all household members, daycare center contacts, contacts in institutions for children under six years of age and all persons who were directly exposed to the patientís oral secretions (e.g., through kissing, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, endotracheal intubation or endotracheal tube management).

Other treatments include airway management, control of shock with fluid resuscitation, and control of increased intracranial pressure. When required, anticonvulsants or antiemetics may be administered by an appropriate route. (3)
