Pathophysiology Disorder

Order Description

Analyze a case study to determine the disorder. Students will synthesize current evidence to support the case analysis and create an in-depth case discussion of the disorder. Case Study Brandi is a 70-year-old woman who lives alone. One evening she felt lightheaded and dizzy. When her head began to ache, she decided to take an analgesic and go to bed early. The following morning, upon awakening, she was unable to move the bed sheets with her right arm. At this point, she was experiencing tingling sensations in her limbs, and she had difficulty keeping her balance. She dialled 911 for help, and by the time the ambulance arrived, she was confused and unable to articulate her words, although she knew what information he was asking of her. She has a history of high blood pressure. She was taken to the emergency room for evaluation. Assignment Criteria: Create a scholarly paper that addresses the following criteria: 1.

Identify risk factors for developing the condition and the population mostly affected 4. Clinical manifestations [signs and symptoms] of the condition 5. Discuss the most common causes of the condition 6. Describe the pathophysiology of the condition and corresponding signs/symptoms 7. Identify patient education strategies for the condition [include health promotion and disease prevention] 8. Describe and discuss a general diagnosis and treatment approach for the condition 9. Select one patient factor: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior and discuss the impact of the patient factor selected on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment, and education of the condition in the case scenario. 10. Identify at least one other condition that could also explain the patient presentation in the case scenario with a supporting rationale.
