There were multiple stab wounds with cuts to her face , neck , chest and abdomen. Last but not least his father Teddy arrived home at approximately 6:30pm and was attacked straight away with again one of the kitchen knives. The wounds were similar to the other victims. He then spray paints on the walls “Fuck Off Asian KKK”.
Concept Map Patient Profile KJ is a 55 year old male admitted to the hospital with chef complain of Chest Pain and Syncope. Patient stated that he was watching TV when he started to have Chest pain with nausea and vomiting. This pain was the same as when he had his MI 3 years ago. He called 911 and the ambulance has transported him to Holy Cross. In the ER the patient has stated that few days before admission he has lost consciousness and fell to the ground, however do damage was caused by the fall.
So now that he was unable to get IV access, he had to obtain an intraosseous infusion (IO). Upon insertion of the IO, you could hear the drill perforate through the tibia. Through the access, Narcan was administered. The advance support provider then took over to establish an advanced airway. He was asking for certain equipment and I can remember feeling my adrenaline pump through my veins, it was really a mix of
I would also perform a urine test to test for any high levels of proteins lost from the kidney. Part 5 A V/Q scan would show blood flow obstruction (embolism) and the use of the radioactive material would be used to examine the airflow in images. The airflow will be normal but the blood flow will be blocked, this is the V/Q mismatch.
The Effects of Sepsis Bundle on Mortality Rates: Background and Significance Historians in the medical field such as Hippocrates and Pasture have referenced symptomologies associated with sepsis of today (Angus & Van der Poll, 2013). Sepsis received its official definition of severe sepsis and septic shock in 1992; with terminology being based on the accompanying disease processes present (Angus & Van der Poll, 2013). The definition of severe sepsis indicates the presence of organ dysfunction along with sepsis. Additionally, septic shock is related to the presence of hypotension not responding to fluid resuscitation (Cawcutt, & Peters, 2014). A diagnosis of severe sepsis or sepsis shock has an increased risk of patient mortality, length of stay, and a higher probability of long-term disability (Cawcutt & Peters, 2014; Whittaker, et al. 2015).
Once she was in the care of Metropolitan Hospital she remained in a coma for 12 days. She suffered from severe hypothermia, severe brain damage, hemorrhagic shock, and loss of 75–80 per cent of her blood from five deep stab wounds and a gash on one of her thighs, and internal bleeding. Her skull had been fractured so badly that her left eye was removed. Her eye socket had been fractured in 21 places, and she had other facial fractures as well.
CSI-1 Conclusion A young male adult was cut in the left hypochondriac region with a knife pointed upward, which was previously used for cutting ribs. The patient is experiencing pain in the thoracic area and he is also suffering pain in the abdominal region which is the location of the knife wound. He is also suffering from respiratory issues deep within the thoracic area. Additionally, the patient shows redness and swelling in the pelvic region.
One of the injuries was a cut on his hand, This injury was a classic defense wound as stated in the movie Hunt for a Killer. This normally is caused when someone is attacked with a knife and the defender tries to stop the blade with his hand. Most of his injuries show signs of starting to heal like they had been made two or three days before he died. This supports the idea that he got into a scuffle and was forced to run away. There is evidence supporting that he was being chased due to types of pollen they found in his stomach during the autopsy.
But the staff understood and Dr. Westwood got an ambulance and reached to ED. He presented with diaphoresis, motor dysfunction, paresthesia, nausea, and ascending paralysis from his leg to the upper body, arms, face and head. He became cyanotic and hyperventilating and it turned to be bradycardiac with a BP 90/50mmHg. After five hour long clinical treatment procedures were followed for tetrodotoxin poisoning, his vital signs were
Hyperkalemia What is hyperkalemia? Hyperkalemia is the medical term for high serum potassium levels. This is often caused by kidney disease, high dietary potassium intake, increased cell breakdown, insulin insufficiency, and use of certain medications (eg, NSAIDs, beta-blockers). Rapid elevations in potassium or very high potassium levels may produce symptoms such as muscle weakness, paralysis, cardiac arrhythmias, and even death.
In this case, the victim was found south of where he was initially kidnapped from a few yards away from the road, hidden in the weeds. The pathologist found hemorrhaging on the top of the skull, which was assumed to be from being tossed around in the trunk of Joubert’s car. He also found a total of eleven stab wounds on Eberle’s body. Eight of the stab wounds penetrated the skin, but three of those were less deep. Nine of those eleven stab wounds happened before death.
Perfusion : Perfusion is the process of a body delivering blood to a capillary bed in itsbiological tissue. The word is derived from the French verb "perfuser" meaning to "pour over or through". Tests verifying that adequate perfusion exists are a part of a patient's assessment process that are performed by medical or emergency personnel. The most common methods include evaluating a body's skin color, temperature, condition and capillary refill.
But the blood flow improves when the body is at rest which would cause nocturia. When he goes for an echocardiogram, he was diagnosed with left ventricular hypertrophy. This is due to the heart remodeling mechanism, where the muscle thickens and was triggered by heart when there is an increased in the workload of the left ventricle. There are a few factors that could contribute to the development of Mr. Rowan’s symptoms. First is the age-related decrease in myocardial and vascular responsiveness to β-adrenergic stimulation that further impairs the ability of the cardiovascular system to respond to increased
Introduction This document illustrates answers to questions posted as a case study where a patient suffers from two arrow wounds. One running anteriorly between the 7th and 8th ribs at a 15-degree angle through the head protruding posteriorly, and another in the posterior cervical triangle. Solution to Question 1a.
