Competency

Describe strategies for safe, effective multidimensional nursing care for clients with acid-base imbalances.

Scenario

Tony is a 56-year-old, Hispanic male that presented to the Emergency Room with complaints of shortness of breath, which he has been experiencing for the past two days. He states “I haven’t felt good for about a week, but couldn’t afford to miss work.” He complains of a cough, fever, and feeling exhausted.

pH 7.28

PaCO2 – 55 mm Hg

PaO2 – 70 mm Hg

HCO3 – 30 mEq/L

Instructions

In a 1-2 page Word document:

1. Determine Tony’s acid-base imbalance

2. Describe possible causes of the imbalance

3. Identify the signs and symptoms that Tony is exhibiting as a result of the acid-base imbalance

4. List the multidimensional care strategies that are appropriate for the care of Tony

Assignment 1: Case Study Assignment: Assessing Neurological Symptoms

Assignment 1: Case Study Assignment: Assessing Neurological Symptoms 150 150 Peter

Assignment 1: Case Study Assignment: Assessing Neurological Symptoms

Imagine not being able to form new memories. This is the reality patients with anterograde amnesia face. Although this form of amnesia is rare, it can result from severe brain trauma. Anterograde amnesia demonstrates just how impactful brain disorders can be to a patient’s quality of living. Accurately assessing neurological symptoms is a complex process that involves the analysis of many factors.

In this Case Study Assignment, you will consider case studies that describe abnormal findings in patients seen in a clinical setting.

CASE STUDY 1: Headaches

A 20-year-old male complains of experiencing intermittent headaches. The headaches diffuse all over the head, but the greatest intensity and pressure occurs above the eyes and spreads through the nose, cheekbones, and jaw.

With regard to the case study you were assigned:

Review this week’s Learning Resources, and consider the insights they provide about the case study.

Consider what history would be necessary to collect from the patient in the case study you were assigned.

Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. How would the results be used to make a diagnosis?

Identify at least five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient.

The Case Study Assignment

Use the Episodic/Focused SOAP Template and create an episodic/focused note about the patient in the case study to which you were assigned using the episodic/focused note template provided in the Week 5 resources. Provide evidence from the literature to support diagnostic tests that would be appropriate for each case. List five different possible conditions for the patient’s differential diagnosis, and justify why you selected each.
