do you check blood sugar (Clarified to: Do you check your sugars often?)

Question

Tina Jones

I don’t check it very often, honestly. . . I think the last time was about a month ago. (Clarified to: if I check my blood sugar often)

This is your avatar.

your blood sugar is elevated

Question
04:15 PM PDT

Tina Jones

They checked it last week at the ER, and they said it was high, but I don’t remember what the number was. I wasn’t thinking about my blood glucose; I was worried about my foot!

Tina Jones

Sure. (Clarified to: if I can show you my foot)

Educate
04:19 PM PDT

Tina Jones

Sure, I think I understand what you mean.

 Model Statement: “I understand how it can feel like a frustrating chore to check your sugar every day. But it is important to keeping your diabetes under control. When you monitor your sugar, it helps you understand what foods, activities, and times of day contribute to you feeling your best. And keeping your sugar down will help your foot wound heal quickly, too. If you would like, I can help you find a monitor that is as painless as possible. I can also teach you more about what the numbers mean.

Information Processing

Each relevant diagnosis is scored on a four-point scale:

  • Priority (1 point): the correct priority of the diagnosis was chosen
  • Evidence (up to 2 points): the strength of the patient cue(s) selected as evidence for the identified diagnosis
    • Required Evidence: selecting at least one cue that directly indicates the presence of a problem or risk is worth 2 points
    • Supporting Evidence: selecting at least one cue that is a contributing factor or cause of a problem or risk, without the presence of Required Evidence, is worth 1 point
  • Planning (1 point): the plan proposed to address the diagnosis includes at least one correct component

Relevant Diagnoses

 1. Acute pain of the foot
2 of 4 points

Priority 1 / 1

Student Response:  High

Correct Priority: High

 Priority Pro Tip: Managing acute pain is an immediate high priority, because other health concerns cannot be effectively addressed while a patient experiences severe pain.

Evidence 0 / 2

Relevant

(None provided)

Irrelevant

“Measured wound: 2 cm x 1.5 cm, 2.5 mm deep”

 Evidence Pro Tip: Tina reports intense pain and rates her pain on a numerical scale. She also reports characteristics of the pain, including its duration of one week; this timespan defines her pain as acute.

Planning 1 / 1

Relevant

Educate – Medication: Educate the patient on medications used for pain relief.

Educate – Medication: Educate the patient on non-pharmaceutical methods to reduce pain intensity.

Irrelevant

Assess – Integumentary: Assess wound parameters (size, depth).

Intervene – Labs: Obtain a wound culture.

Intervene – Labs: Obtain blood for culture x2 (blood from two sites).

Intervene – Labs: Order a complete blood count test (CBC).

Intervene – Prescribe: Prescribe antibiotics.

 Planning Pro Tip: Intervene to reduce the pain by prescribing an appropriate analgesic and educating the patient on its effective use and potential side effects. Provide the patient with options for non-pharmacological pain relief, such as RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation). shadow health Comprehensive Health History Assignment – NR 509 Week 1
 2. Local infection of skin and subcutaneous tissue of the foot
2 of 4 points

Priority 1 / 1

Student Response:  High

Correct Priority: High

 Priority Pro Tip: Treating this infection is a high priority, as failure to treat the infection may lead to it spreading to surrounding tissues or systemically. Treating the infection can prevent adverse events such as osteomyelitis and bacteremia.

Evidence 0 / 2

Relevant

(None provided)

Irrelevant

“Measured wound: 2 cm x 1.5 cm, 2.5 mm deep”

 Evidence Pro Tip: Tina presents with an open wound on the plantar surface of the foot. The wound is red, swollen, warm, and produces purulent discharge. Tina reports that the appearance and level of discomfort have worsened with time- all of these factors support a diagnosis of acute infection.

Planning 1 / 1

Relevant

Intervene – Other: Clean wound and cover with sterile dressing.

Educate – Health Maintenance: Educate the patient on wound care procedure.

Irrelevant

(None provided)

 Planning Pro Tip: Assess the wound directly and obtain a culture so that the infectious organism may be identified, then clean and re-dress the wound. Regional lymph nodes may be swollen. Because the infection is the root cause of Tina’s other acute issues, prescribing an anti-infective will begin to resolve the issues; after receiving culture results, the specific anti-infective given may be changed. Ensure that Tina understands how to treat the wound, use the anti-infective effectively, and to report symptoms of a worsening infection. Foot care is especially important for diabetics, so you should help Tina better understand diabetes’ impact on wound healing and the need to proactively monitor her foot health.
 3. Uncontrolled type 2 diabetes mellitus
2 of 4 points

Priority 1 / 1

Student Response:  High

Correct Priority: High

 Priority Pro Tip: Tina’s uncontrolled diabetes will delay her wound healing and places her at risk for end organ damage. The need to provide better glucose control for Tina makes this a high priority.

Evidence 0 / 2

Relevant

(None provided)

Irrelevant

“Measured wound: 2 cm x 1.5 cm, 2.5 mm deep”

 Evidence Pro Tip: Tina’s current blood glucose level supports a diagnosis of uncontrolled type 2 DM. Tina reports symptoms consistent with poor control such as polyuria, polydipsia, and nocturia.

Planning 1 / 1

Relevant

Educate – Health Maintenance: Educate the patient on self-monitoring of blood glucose level procedure and its role in treating diabetes. shadow health Comprehensive Health History Assignment – NR 509 Week 1

Educate – Health Maintenance: Educate the patient on the impact of diet, exercise, and weight loss on glycemic control.

Irrelevant

Educate – Health Maintenance: Educate the patient on the role of lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise, in improving health outcomes.

 Planning Pro Tip: Assess for impacts of Tina’s uncontrolled diabetes including diminished peripheral pulses, peripheral and sensory neuropathy, and retinopathy, and order labs to check for renal function and abnormal lipid levels. Establish a baseline fasting glucose level and educate Tina on the need to monitor her blood glucose and be aware of symptoms of hyperglycemia. Provide better control by prescribing a first-line drug for glucose control. As Tina’s diabetes is uncontrolled, educate her on appropriate diet, monitoring, and treatment regimens.
 4. Asthma
2 of 4 points

Priority 1 / 1

Student Response:  Low

Correct Priority: Low

 Priority Pro Tip: Although Tina requires education to better manage her asthma, she does not report active respiratory complaints, making this a lower priority diagnosis. shadow health Comprehensive Health History Assignment – NR 509 Week 1

Evidence 0 / 2

Relevant

(None provided)

Irrelevant

“Measured wound: 2 cm x 1.5 cm, 2.5 mm deep”

 Evidence Pro Tip: Tina reports a personal history of asthma, including past hospitalizations for asthma attacks, as well as her use of an albuterol inhaler. Her sibling’s asthma is of interest, given the strong genetic and environmental factors in the development of asthma.

Planning 1 / 1

Relevant

Assess – Respiratory: Assess lung sounds with auscultation.

Assess – Respiratory: Assess pulmonary function using spirometry. shadow health Comprehensive Health History Assignment – NR 509 Week 1

Assess – Respiratory: Assess respirations (rate, rhythm, depth, quality).

Educate – Health Maintenance: Educate the patient on avoiding triggers of asthma.

Educate – Health Maintenance: Educate the patient on enacting her asthma action plan including proper use of rescue inhaler.

Irrelevant

Assess – Respiratory: Assess for reduced forced expiratory volume using spirometry.

 Planning Pro Tip: Because Tina does not report treatment for maintenance of her asthma, instead relying on a rescue inhaler for sporadic attacks, educate her on developing and enacting a proactive plan to manage the disease. Though Tina does not report an active respiratory complaint, it is valuable to assess for abnormal findings that she may not report. shadow health Comprehensive Health History Assignment – NR 509 Week 1
