WU NURS 6501 Week 2 Advanced Pathophysiology Rheumatoid Arthritis Discussion

Follow the instructions in the attachment. Pathophysiology is the topic of this assignment. I answered most of the questions myself. I need assistance with making the paper look acceptable and professional. It is OK for the tutor to make corrections and add any more material to this topic. Include the scenario case supplied by the lecturer. The tutor must be an expert in the Acute-APRN(RN) Master program, use APA style in citation and references, and follow the rubric table for grading information. It means a lot to me.

Week 2: Altered Physiology

With a place squarely in the spotlight for patients diagnosed with all manner of disease, APRNs must demonstrate not only support and compassion, but expertise to guide patients’ understanding of diagnoses and treatment plans.

This expertise goes beyond an understanding of disease and sciences, such as cellular pathophysiology. APRNs must become experts in their patients, understanding their medical backgrounds, pertinent characteristics, and other variables that can be factors in their diagnoses and treatments.

This week, you examine alterations in the immune system and the resultant disease processes. You consider patient characteristics, including racial and ethnic variables, and the impact they have on altered physiology.

WU NURS 6501 Week 2 Advanced Pathophysiology Rheumatoid Arthritis Discussion Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Evaluate cellular processes and alterations within cellular processes
  • Analyze alterations in the immune system that result in disease processes
  • Identify racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning
  • Evaluate the impact of patient characteristics on disorders and altered physiology

Module 1 Assignment: Case Study Analysis

An understanding of cells and cell behavior is a critically important component of disease diagnosis and treatment. But some diseases can be complex in nature, with a variety of factors and circumstances impacting their emergence and severity.

Effective disease analysis often requires an understanding that goes beyond isolated cell behavior. Genes, the environments in which cell processes operate, the impact of patient characteristics, and racial and ethnic variables all can have an important impact. WU NURS 6501 Week 2 Advanced Pathophysiology Rheumatoid Arthritis Discussion

An understanding of the signals and symptoms of alterations in cellular processes is a critical step in the 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 cell, gene, and/or process elements that may be factors in the diagnosis, and you explain the implications to patient health. WU NURS 6501 Week 2 Advanced Pathophysiology Rheumatoid Arthritis Discussion

To prepare:

By Day 1 of this week, you will be assigned to a specific case study for this Case Study Assignment. Please see the “Course Announcements” section of the classroom for your assignment from your Instructor.

CASE STUDY WEEK #2

THIS IS FOR WEEK #2 — PLEASE NOTE:

Scenario 1: A 49-year-old rheumatoid arthritis patient arrives at the clinic complaining of a fever. Atorvastatin 40 mg at night, methotrexate 10 mg po every Friday morning, and prednisone 5 mg po qam are the patient’s current meds. He claims to have had a temperature of up to 101 degrees F for approximately a week and admits to having chills and sweating. He claims to be more tired than normal and to be experiencing chest pain as a result of coughing. He admits to experiencing hemoptysis on occasion. He works for a huge farm cooperative as a grain inspector. After a thorough examination, the patient was diagnosed with Invasive Aspergillosis.
