Description

LAB ASSIGNMENT: ASSESSING THE ABDOMEN

A male went to the emergency room for severe midepigastric abdominal pain. He was diagnosed with AAA ; however, as a precaution, the doctor ordered a CTA scan.

Because of a high potential for misdiagnosis, determining the precise cause of abdominal pain can be time consuming and challenging. By analyzing case studies of abnormal abdominal findings, nurses can prepare themselves to better diagnose conditions in the abdomen.

In this Lab Assignment, you will analyze an Episodic note case study that describes abnormal findings in patients seen in a clinical setting. You will consider what history should be collected from the patients as well as which physical exams and diagnostic tests should be conducted. You will also formulate a differential diagnosis with several possible

ABDOMINAL ASSESSMENT

Subjective:

CC: “My stomach has been hurting for the past two days.”

HPI: LZ, 65 y/o AA male, presents to the emergency department with a two days history of intermittent epigastric abdominal pain that radiates into his back. He went to the local Urgent Care where was given PPI’s with no relief. At this time, the patient reports that the pain has been increasing in severity over the past few hours; he vomited after lunch, which led his to go to the ED at this time. He has not experienced fever, diarrhea, or other symptoms associated with his abdominal pain.

PMH: HTN

Abd: abdomen is tender in the epigastric area with guarding but without mass or rebound.
Diagnostics: US and CTA
Assessment:

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)
Perforated Ulcer
Pancreatitis
PLAN: This section is not required for the assignments in this course (NURS 6512) but will be required for future courses.

I just want to make sure you all read all instructions carefully, use the rubric and post on time. There will be deductions if you do not post on time.

I do not accept assignments on my email. I would not even open an email assignment.

Having to work is not an excuse.

If sickness documentation needs to go to Walden Medical Documentation department for verification NOT to my email.

Again, USE the RUBRIC, this is an analysis on each section of the SOAP, needs support using peer review support JOURNALS NOT regular Medscape or internet sources. I will deduct points if documentation is not proper

Read not only this announcement but Week 6 module for more information. Pay attention this is your degree and a considered a clinical class. Many mistakes from past weeks are for lack of reading on the announcements and modules.

Have a great New Year!
