Week 4 NURS 6501 Discussion

Module 2: Case Study Analysis Assignment: Situation: A 65-year-old patient underwent a complete knee replacement and is 8 days out from surgery. The patient complains of palpitations, pleuritic chest discomfort, and shortness of breath all at once. When the patient arrived at the emergency room, an EKG indicated right ventricular strain pattern and new onset atrial fibrillation, as well as T wave inversions in the right precordial leads (V1-4) and the inferior leads (II, III, aVF).

Module 2 Assignment: Case Study Analysis

An understanding of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems is a critically important component of disease diagnosis and treatment. This importance is magnified by the fact that these two systems work so closely together. A variety of factors and circumstances that impact the emergence and severity of issues in one system can have a role in the performance of the other. NURS6501 Week 4 Module 2 Assignment Case Study Analysis

Effective disease analysis often requires an understanding that goes beyond these systems and their capacity to work together. The impact of patient characteristics, as well as racial and ethnic variables, can also have an important impact.

An understanding of the symptoms of alterations in cardiovascular and respiratory systems is a critical step in diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. For APRNs this understanding can also help educate patients and guide them through their treatment plans.

In this Assignment, you examine a case study and analyze the symptoms presented. You identify the elements that may be factors in the diagnosis, and you explain the implications to patient health. NURS6501 Week 4 Module 2 Assignment Case Study Analysis
