The reason why I am so happy that I get to be in the version of Survivor MD because I think it will be cool for a Rheumatologist to be on TV and to be on live TV , also to see if a doctor can survive on Survivor MD. The special skills that I have that will help my group will probably be being people smart and helping with fights and problems.

One difficulty was that Dr. Neil had to restart over again on his job.
One success we had was that Dr. Nicole, David, and Neil finished their job.

The challenge that we had just finish was difficult but fun and a little bit of easy. Also, our team worked together and we accomplished the task cooperativley.

Challenge 5

This challenge was when we had to diagnose a patiant and figure out what was wrong with them. This challenge required teamwork and logic.

Patient Name: Trina Woods

Diagnosis:(Disease and definition of the disease) Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease spread through a tick bite.
(How can the disease be treated?)
Oral antibiotics- treatment for early stage Lyme. 14-21 days of treatment
Intravenous antibiotics- 14-28 days of treatment if disease. Eliminates infection and takes time to recover. Lower white blood cell count and gallstones and mild to severe diarrhea.
(What is the outlook for this patient? What advice do you have for your patient?)

Dr. David says that if you go camping, take some tick spray with you. Then you have a less chance of Lyme disease. Also take your medications, and if the disease becomes worse, please come back.

Dr. Neil says that you could also wear long pants and sleeves to prevent bug bites. Also, do your best to tick-proof your yard. If you have any family or pets, check them for ticks.

Dr. Nicole says that if you find a tick, remove it with tweezers, not with your hands. You are in for a rough 1 and ahalf months, but if you take all your medications, you’ll do fine.

This challenge was hard because we had to get all the facts about Lyme disease and sort it out into the medical chart. This challenge was successful because we finished everything on time and did it correctly.
