Assessment Task 1

Assessment name: Case Study: The Deteriorating Patient

Task description: For this essay you are required to select ONE (1) case scenario related to the clinical deterioration of a patient:

Option 1: Hypovolemic shock Option 2: Septic Shock

The assessment tasks requires you to:

1. From the chosen case study identify and discuss two (2) signs or symptoms of clinical deterioration associated with the pathophysiology of the patients’ presenting problem.

2. Following on from your discussion, and related to the patients deterioration, identify one (1) priority problem associated with the patient’s clinical presentation, and through the application of contemporary research provide a justification as to why the problem is a clinical priority within the case.

3. Discuss two (2) nursing interventions to address the priority problem and how to evaluate the efficacy of these interventions.

4. Identify one psychosocial issue derived from the information provided within the case study, and applying a patient centred approach, discuss the care needs and considerations related to the patient and their family.

References: A minimum of 15 contemporary references no older than 7 years. The reference list is to be presented in accordance to QUT APA requirements and identify eight (8) papers that are considered by the author (you) to be of high importance. These eight (8) papers are to include a three (3) sentence annotation that outlines their significance (please refer to the example provided within this resource). Indicate these in your list using ** (see example provided below).

What you need to do: In order to undertake this essay you will need to research the topic using current and relevant peer reviewed literature, in conjunction with reviewing:

 The lecture and tutorial materials associated with the relevant topic.

 Your knowledge and understanding related to:

1. The physiology and pathophysiology of the primary diagnosis and associated clinical data identified within the chosen case study;

2. The physiological assessments relevant to the features within the case study.

This assessment task is an individual assessment item and should be reflective of your own independent work.

This assignment requires you to critically consider the signs and symptoms associated with clinical deterioration in relation to the patient’s primary clinical diagnosis, with consideration to:

 The change in health status associated with the primary clinical diagnosis;

 Consider how the patients clinical history may impact on assessment data and core interventions;

 The identified clinical priority which should clearly emerge from your discussion of the patients health history.

 The application of clinical data and research to identify two (2) core interventions and assessments that address the stated clinical priority.

 Demonstrating your clinical reasoning with in the selected case study.

 Demonstrating your understanding and application of evidence based care i.e. the research you have selected to support your discussion and key points regarding clinical interventions and assessment outcomes.

Additional information:

 There MUST be two (2) nursing interventions discussed to address the priority problem.

 Of the two interventions, a MAXIMUM of one (1) intervention can be solely related to a pharmacological agent and/or a collaborative intervention.

 All interventions should consider the nursing role within the provision of the intervention.

Case Option 1: Hypovolemic shock

History of presenting complaint

Kenneth Bradman is a 67 year old man who has been admitted to the surgical high

dependency unit post a large per rectum (PR) bleed, which required an emergency

gastroscopy for an upper gastrointestinal bleed and the injunction of two (2) bleeding

ulcers in the context of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use and

previous ethanol misuse.

included:

 4 units of packed red blood cells (PRBC),

 4 litres of NaCl 0.9%,

 4 units of fresh frozen plasma (FFP) and,

 5 units of cryoprecipitate.

He has been transferred for further monitoring to the Surgical High Dependency Unit

secondary to underlying hypovolemic shock, new onset of atrial fibrillation and

concerns regarding the potential of an acute kidney injury.

The surgical team has requested hourly monitoring for this patient, and his progress

will be reviewed tomorrow.

Past medical history:

Type 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, hypertension, coronary artery

disease, colon cancer and underwent a right sided hemicolectomy in December

Case Option 2: Septic shock

History of presenting complaint

Elodie Greer is 14 year old girl with a previous diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic

Leukaemia (ALL) which was treated with chemotherapy. She has received a

subsequent allogenic stem cell transplant 7 weeks ago.

She presents with a three-day history of feeling generally unwell and malaise. Her

mother (Christine) has brought Elodie into to the Emergency Department at 14:00

hours as she had become increasingly concerned about Elodie, as she has become

quite and withdrawn. She reports that Elodie has been doing well post her transplant

and has been active and happy. Christine states that Elodie is not a whinny kid and

would do almost anything to avoid further time in hospital.

Elodie was assessed in the Emergency Department has been transferred to the

Pediatric hematology/oncology ward as a priority admission with suspected sepsis

secondary to an infected Hickman’s line.

Past medical history:

Weight 51kg

Current medications:

Eloide’s current medications include:

Sodium bicarbonate mouthwash, loperamide, ondansetron, cyclosporine, potassium

and magnesium supplements

On assessment:

Elodie is admitted to the pediatric hematology/oncology unit at 20:45hrs.

On admission:

 She appears lethargic and diaphoretic,

NSB236: Integrated Nursing Practice 3

NSB236 – Assessment Task 1 Page 12 of 19

 Temperature on assessment 38.4 (orally), her heart rate is elevated (103

beats/min) and blood pressure is 102/67mmHg ,

 Respiratory rate is increased (21 breaths/minute) with noted increased work

of breathing, and SpO2 is 91% on 2 L via NP.

 She has not voided for since this morning in the Emergency Department

(ED) (at approximately 6:30hrs) and reported that it was dark yellow in

colour.

 She reports her mouth is dry and she feels thirsty but does not feel like

drinking or eating reporting that she is too tired and “feels a bit sick”.

The medical round is currently reviewing Elodie and note that blood cultures (for

microscopy culture and sensitivities) were taken from the Hickman’s catheter in ED

which has not grown any organisms to date. On review they determine that the

patient is experiencing sepsis, her blood pathology results reveal the following:
