New Jersey Kawasaki Syndrome Disease Report Mobile App
Kawasaki disease causes inflammation in arteries throughout the body, most notably the coronary arteries.
How does it work?
The illness can also affect lymph nodes, skin, and mucous membranes of the ears, nose, and throat. Symptoms include high fever and peeling skin. There are no major risk factors for the disease, although it is more likely to affect boys than girls, and children less than five years of age. The disease is most often treated with medicine; on rare occasions, children whose coronary arteries are affected may require a procedure. After confirming the disease through laboratory tests and ruling out similar infections, treatment should be administered promptly after the disease onset. With the New Jersey Kawasaki Syndrome Disease Report app, a health care provider can document and report a patient's diagnosis, treatment, and health status with this illness. The app user will record the date of diagnosis, onset of illness, and case status. For the clinical status section, the app user will mark 'yes' or 'no' for a list of clinical factors and provide an explanation as needed. The list includes the onset of fever, a conjunctival injection administered, oral change or abnormalities reported, and the incidence of cervical lymphadenopathy.
