WEEK #4 TOPIC

WEEK #4 – CASE STUDY ANALYSIS

Scenario 1: 76-year-old female patient complains of weight gain, shortness of breath, peripheral edema, and abdominal swelling. She has a history of congestive heart failure and admits to not taking her diuretic, as it makes her “have to get up every couple hours to go to the bathroom.” She now has to sleep on two pillows in order to get enough air.

Advanced practice nurses must be equipped with an in-depth understanding of pathophysiological disease processes across the lifespan. In this course, students focus on understanding the bio-physiological processes, the deviations from these processes, and an in-depth examination of the scientific concepts related to the biology of disease processes. Advanced practice nursing students learn how normal organ systems function and how organ systems are interrelated to help the body maintain homeostasis. Through knowledge of pathophysiological disease processes, students gain the information needed to develop appropriate treatment plans for patients across the life span. Students explore a variety of topics, such as immunity, inflammation, cancer genetics, and cardiovascular disease.

In your Case Study Analysis related to the scenario provided, explain the following

· The cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes that result in the patient presenting these symptoms.

· Any racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning.

· How these processes interact to affect the patient.

In most advanced pathophysiology courses, students focus on understanding the biophysiological processes, the deviations from these processes, and the scientific concepts related to the biology of disease processes. MSN nursing students in an advanced pathophysiology course typically learn how normal organ systems function and how organ systems are interrelated to help the body maintain homeostasis. Additionally, students explore such topics as immunity, inflammation, cancer genetics, and cardiovascular disease. They also examine a range of disease processes, including hematologic, renal, neurologic, gastrointestinal, and reproductive disorder

Pathophysiology combines pathology (the study of the causes and effects of disease) with physiology (the study of how systems of the body function). In other words, pathophysiology studies how diseases affect the systems of the body, causing functional changes that can lead to health consequences
