Treatment & Management Of Acute Sinusitis In The Primary Care Setting, Vanessa Trieu Jan 2018

Treatment & Management Of Acute Sinusitis In The Primary Care Setting, Vanessa Trieu

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Sinusitis is a leading cause of primary care visits. The majority of cases are due to a viral infection, which can be self-treated with supportive care. Many patients are unaware of this and seek medical attention prematurely, incurring significant healthcare costs and resulting in antibiotic misuse. On the other hand, a prolonged infection or the presence of atypical symptoms does warrant medical attention and can potentially lead to untoward consequences if inadequately treated. The purpose of this project is to provide patient education on the expected course of an acute sinus infection and how to proceed with management.
