NURS 6501 Cardiovascular Disorders Discussion DQ1

 

At least once a year, the media report on a seemingly
healthy teenage athlete collapsing during a sports game and dying of heart
complications. These incidents continue to outline the importance of physical
exams and health screenings for teenagers, especially those who play sports.
During these health screenings, examiners check for cardiovascular alterations
such as heart murmurs because they can be a sign of an underlying heart
disorder. Since many heart alterations rarely have symptoms, they are easy to
miss if health professionals are not specifically looking for them. Once
cardiovascular alterations are identified in patients, it is important to refer
them to specialists who can further investigate the cause.

Consider the following scenario:

A 16-year-old male presents for a sports participation
examination. He has no significant medical history and no family history suggestive
of risk for premature cardiac death. The patient is examined while sitting
slightly recumbent on the exam table and the advanced practice nurse
appreciates a grade II/VI systolic murmur heard loudest at the apex of the
heart. Other physical findings are within normal limits, the patient denies any
cardiovascular symptoms, and a neuromuscular examination is within normal
limits. He is cleared with no activity restriction. Later in the season he
collapses on the field and dies.

To prepare:

Review the scenario provided, as well as Chapter 24 in the
Huether and McCance text. Consider how you would diagnose and prescribe
treatment for the patient.

Select one of the following patient factors: genetics,
ethnicity, or behavior. Reflect on how the factor you selected might impact
diagnosis and prescription of treatment for the patient in the scenario.

By Day 3

Post a description of how you would diagnose and prescribe
treatment for the patient in the scenario. Then explain how the factor you
selected might impact the diagnosis and prescription of treatment for that
patient.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses.

By Day 5

Respond to at least two of your colleagues who selected a
different factor than you, in one of the following ways:

Make a suggestion based on additional evidence drawn from
readings or after synthesizing multiple postings.

Share insights based on your own experience and additional
research.
