4.1.2. Rationale for MD interventions CBC & diff. to detect hemoglobin loss, increase WBC confirms active infection, Blood Cultures test to determine if local or systemic infection & to rule out any bacterial infection, Urine C & S test to find bacteria that caused infection, Urinalysis Test to identify any abnormalities,to detect variety of disorders and to interpret quality of urine including appearance, concentration and content of urine. IV therapy- antibiotics to treat bacterial infection(eg. Septra), IV fluid therapy to flush the kidneys.

(note pt. presents decreased urine output upon admission.) During this stage, bleeding+ infection is common.
