Acute Care Q&A

What is acute care?

Acute care is the type of medical care you receive when you have a mild illness that isn’t life-threatening or long-term. Many mild illnesses resolve independently or are easy to treat with gentle care. 

Armstrong Telehealth LLC offers telehealth care for acute illnesses. That means you can log into your appointment remotely and talk to Dr. Armstrong NP using high-definition video and audio on your electronic device. Telehealth is helpful for acute care because:

  • Same- and next-day visits are available
  • You don’t need transportation
  • You can avoid spreading or catching contagious illnesses in a public setting
  • It’s easier for you to rest through your illness because you don’t have to go anywhere

Dr. Armstrong NP uses patient-assisted evaluations to assess your symptoms thoroughly. She asks for your account of your symptoms and reviews your medical history to diagnose you. 

Which medical conditions can acute care address?

Nikki Armstrong provides acute care for a wide range of common illnesses and ailments that don’t affect you for very long. Most are quite easy to treat, and for those that don’t have a cure, she can provide recommendations for home care to alleviate specific symptoms. 

You can schedule a telehealth visit to get acute care for:

  • Pink eye
  • The common cold
  • The flu
  • Head lice
  • Rashes
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Strep throat
  • Ear infections
  • Headache

Some medical conditions may seem acute but are better suited for emergency room care rather than acute care via telehealth. For example, suppose you experience excessive bleeding, a loss of consciousness, chest pain, abdominal pain, or a high fever that won’t go down. In that case, you should visit the emergency room instead of booking an acute sick visit. 

How are acute conditions treated?

After evaluating your condition via video chat with your assistance, Nikki makes personalized treatment recommendations that align with your specific diagnosis. Bacterial infections benefit from prescribed antibiotics, while other illnesses improve with other medications.

In some cases, no prescriptions are necessary. Certain viral infections cannot be cured with antibiotics. As you wait for them to resolve, Nikki might recommend home remedies or over-the-counter medications to alleviate symptoms. She may tell you to stay home to avoid getting others sick if your illness is contagious.
