Congestive Heart Failure

Why might this patient be attachment? An abnormally rapid rate of breathing due to weight, heart has to work harder Patient Case Question 12. Is this patient technically underweight, overweight, obese, or is her weight healthy? Weight = 21 5, height = 58″ female IBM = 32. 7 Obesity = IBM of 30 or greater Patient Case Question 13. Explain the pathologically of the abnormal skin manifestations. Hers is pale with cool extremities; CHEF clinical manifestations: pale, mottled or grayish appearance in skin color Patient Case Question 14.

Do abnormal findings in the neck WED and HAJJ) suggest left heart failure, right heart failure, or total CHEF? A positive test correlates with the pulmonary artery pressure and thus is a marker for right heart dysfunction (both positive in the patient) Patient Case Question 15. Which abnormal cardiac exam and chest x-ray findings closely complement one another? Chest x-ray: prominent cardiology, perihelia shadows consistent Witt pulmonary edema Cardiac Exam: MI displaced laterally, Distinct SO at apex Patient Case Question 16. Which abnormal cardiac exam and EGG findings closely complement one another?

Chest x-ray: prominent cardiology, perihelia shadows consistent with pulmonary edema EGG: sinus tachycardia with waveform abnormalities consistent with LIVE, Pronounced Q waves consistent with pulmonary edema. Patient Case Question 17. What might the abnormal serum An+ and K+ levels suggest? Has hyperthermia, decreased SGF and decreased sodium excretion Patient Case Question 18. Explain the abnormal BUN and serum Cry concentrations. Rhea BUN and serum Cry are very low, caused by decreased globular filtration rate Patient Case Question 19.

What might be causing the elevated serum glucose concentration? Serum levels of inflammatory cytokines and lepton are elevated in patients with heart failure. Patient Case Question 20. Explain the abnormal serum SAT level. High levels of SAT can be found in cases such as myocardial infarction Patient Case Question 21 . Explain the abnormal arterial blood gas findings. A low partial pressure of oxygen (Papa) suggests that a person is not getting enough oxygen; Metabolic acidosis->Kidney failure, shock, diabetic acidosis’s Patient Case Question 22.

Which of the hemoglobin findings, if any, are abnormal? Rhea albumin serum level is a little low. Low albumin levels are a warning and an indication that further investigation may be warranted. They may reflect a temporary condition that will resolve itself or may suggest an acute or chronic condition that requires medical intervention. Patient Case Question 23. What do the TTS and TO data suggest? They suggest the horrid is functioning properly (both within normal ranges) Patient Case Question 25.

Ejection fraction is an important cardiac function parameter that is used to determine the contractile status of the heart and is measured with specialized testing procedures. If a patient has an 100 and an EDP= 200, FEE abnormally high, low, or normal? Formula: [(EDP- ESP.) / EDP] x 100 – A normal heart’s ejection fraction may be between 55 and 70. An FEE between 40 and 55 indicates damage, perhaps from a previous heart attack, but it may not indicate heart failure. FEE higher than 75 percent may indicate a heart condition like hypertrophied cardiopulmonary.
