Re: Mr Amir Akbari, aged 41
Mr Amir Akbari, who has been recuperating from Guillain- Barre Syndrome, and is being transferred to your facility today, requires further rehabilitative care and appropriate management.
On 6 March 2011, Mr Akbari was admitted to hospital followed by rapid deterioration and required ventilator support for three days in the intensive care unit.Plasmapheresis and intravenous gammaglobulin for five days were commenced. Apart from that, regular physiotherapy including patient-centered exercises has been provided due to risk of less movement of his limbs during the peak time.
During hospitalization, Mr Akbari has shown excellent progress. Muscle movements and strength are still less, though he could mobilize slowly with the assistance of a frame. Consequently, continuing observation is highly recommended for physical therapy as well as breathing and neurological status.
Mr Akbari, Muslim, has been living with wife and two kids. He has had a history of post-traumatic stress disorder following a trauma while in the battle. However, he seems to be depressed regarding his future. In relation to the present situation, financial burden, study and child bearing pressure have been noticed from his wife.
Based on the aforementioned circumstances, ongoing assistive care and constant supervision would be extremely beneficial to improve Mr Akbari’s health condition.Additionally, a psychological assessment for his depression and facilitating the social worker's awareness to reinforce the follow-up and ease the stress of the wife could be beneficial. It is noted that, halal diet will be required.
If any additional information is required, please do not hesitate to contact me.
