When Mr. C begins to arouse as a result of the anesthesia is wearing off, he started to grimace and his blood pressure shut up above the target level. By applying Kolcaba’s comfort theory I would chose to treat Mr. C’s blood pressure with medications designed only for blood pressure. Now since that I am accustomed to assessing comfort needs, I would recognized that Mr. C’s BP is high suggestive of increase in pain, and I would administer the Morphine as per doctors order. I would place a warming blanket for Mr. C, to ensure he achieve nomorthermia. This close monitoring and intervention of treatment such as for pain represent a comfort intervention that addresses a particular care and it is a relief form of comfort.
The infection has an “incubation period of four to six weeks, in children this may be shorter,” (Mayo). The illness is spread most often by close contact and kissing. Common symptoms include general feeling of being ill, fatigue, sore throat, fever, decreased appetite and headache. As the illness progresses the tonsils swell and develop a whitish-yellow covering and the lymph nodes become more swollen and painful. One of the complications of mononucleosis is a ruptured spleen.
It just happens sometimes, usually on accident. Consequently, just having AIDS is bad enough. There are many symptoms, including a weakened immune system, fevers, weight loss and even diarrhea.

Clinical Case Study A Patient with Persistent Lactation and Recurrent Hypercalcemia Ryan Alberth Kintana National University CLS301 Clinical Biochemistry Background An overweight adolescent patient with constant bilateral lactation, diagnose with Hyperprolactinemia resulting elevated serum prolactin. Methods Patients go through a surgery performed through the nose and sphenoid sinus to extract the pituitary tumors. Then later develop a condition of absent production of the anterior pituitary hormones, with lack of vasopressin causing excessive production of very dilute urine, commonly result problems that influence the pituitary gland either decrease or remove its function or interfere with hypothalamic discharge of the varying pituitary-releasing
Caitlin Little 2.15.18 ANP II Case Study 1. Mr. Tripson’s physician is clearly taking very seriously the symptoms he is exhibiting on his second day of hospitalization after suffering a severe head trauma that resulted in a coma. Polyuria and frequent urination are symptoms of diabetes, though given his head trauma the diagnosis could be even more serious, even potentially life threatening. The physician will order blood and urine tests to rule out different types of diabetes and gain a better conclusion about what’s going on internally with Mr. Tripson. For Mr. Tripson’s urine test, the physician wants to examine his dissolved particle-to-water levels, or osmolarity.

Working in the field the author as witnessed a number of unprofessional conduct, ranging from the hospitals, to the ambulance services, the author would like to think she has seen it all. In one particular instance, the author was booked on shift with an emergency service provider. As one of the author’s first call for the day we responded to a 5year old boy that fell from a height and sustained a concussion. After loading the patient on route to the hospital the patient’s Glasgow coma scale (GCS) dropped to from 14/15 to 12/15 and the patient became very sleepy, the author decided to give oxygen asking help from the on-duty practitioner to connect the oxygen mask top the oxygen supply, however, the practitioner was unable to connect the oxygen

Once someone is infected the typical symptoms of Cryptosporidiosis includes; watery diarrhoea, stomach cramps, bloating, vomiting, fever.  The majority of people recover without therapy however children, the elderly and the immune compromised are at risk. There is no known safe and effective therapy for gastroenteritis caused by cryptosporidium. Therefore since cryptosporidiosis is a self-limiting illness in individuals with weakened immune systems, then supportive care is the only treatment for the illness. However, if the patient’s symptoms are persistent and severe, specifically in the case of diarrhoea, then they require oral or IV rehydration as the diarrhoea is causing them to lose essential electrolytes, which can lead to further

Daryl Garrison is a 62 yeas old male with PMH of ESRD, HTN, Depression, chronic pain, neuropathy, tobacco abuse, recent GI bleeding, hyperkalemia, HLD, and acid reflex. He was recently hospitalized for GI bleeding and received multiple blood transfusions. During SOC, he was found to have unsteady gait (had falls without injury 2 weeks ago), generalized weakness, and increased back pain (on Percocet).

I write on behalf of my patient, Phil Robins, who is a sixty-five-year-old male facing acute urinary retention. Phil Robins shows several medical symptoms, including an inability to urinate, severe pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen, and bloating of the lower abdomen. My patient has been previously diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia which has been obstructing his urinary tract. Because of this, he frequently has to use a catheter to empty his bladder. My main concern for Mr. Robins is the prevention of infections commonly associated with catheter use.
