With Bacteria Pneumonia Will Wbc Elevate
Antibiotics can kill gram negative bacteria but symptoms of fever and low blood pressure can persist why?
It depends: on the timing of the blood sample. Neutrophils are typically elevated w/ bacterial infections & Lymphocytes are associated w/ viral infections. However, early on in the course of an illness, and with certain stress reactions, there can be a predominance of Neutrophils as well. The most important thing to me as a physician, is the clinical appearance of patients. Discuss this w/ your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
31/F..high WBC, with high neutrophils and decrrased lymphs. Symptoms of sinus infection and possible strep throat. Temp of 95.5?
Sinus infection: Strept can give you a high white count and the change or shift in the type of cells to predominantly neutrophils is to be expected. The low temp could be secondary to the thermometer not functioning or did you drink something cool prior to the reading? At any rate take the antibiotics prescribed, consider doing saline washes up to 5 times a day, and I find motrin works better than tylenol (acetaminophen) pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Antibiotics can kill gram-negative bacteria, but symptoms of fever and low blood pressure can persist--why is this?
Other Causes: Has enough time elapsed for the antibiotics to work? Were you given the correct or best antibiotic? Certain antibiotics work on some gram (+) bacteria, others on gram (-) bacteria or a combination of (+) and (-) . Not only are there bacteria resistant to antibiotics, but your symptoms might last longer than the actual bacteria. Cultures can be taken to see which antibiotics should be effective. ...Read more
