Week 4: Alterations in the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems

Week 4: Alterations in the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems

This week we will continue our discussion of the circulatory and respiratory system. You will have another case study to discuss in a two-page paper based on the below listed case scenario.

Case Scenario:

 

11-year-old boy complains of wheezing and difficulty “getting enough air.” Notices it more when he is playing baseball and symptoms improve when exercise activity stops. He says that the symptoms are getting worse, and the symptoms are even occurring at rest. Mother says the child is allergic to cat dander and his next-door neighbor in their apartment building recently began sheltering cats for the local humane society. Auscultation demonstrates wheezes on forced expiration throughout all lung fields.

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

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

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

3. How these processes interact to affect the patient.

Requirements:

· Two (2) page paper based on the above listed case scenario.

· The College of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, conclusion and references.

· Keep in mind that APA 7 formatting is required.

· At least 5 References and they should be no older than five years from publication.
