  1. The Following is a case study on John Thomas. Please review each stage and answer the questions.

STAGE 1: John Thomas is a 64-year-old Caucasian male who presents to the emergency room with a two-day history of intermittent substernal chest pressure associated with shortness of breath and diaphoresis.  The pain had originally awoken Mr. Thomas from sleep 2 nights ago and has been intermittently relieved with some sublingual nitroglycerin tablets that he had received from his physician 3 years ago.  The pain increases with exertion, but now is constant.  He rates the pain a “7” on a scale of 1 to 10. Past Medical History:  HTN, Type 2 DM Home Medications:     Lopressor (metoprolol) 50 mg PO daily Lasix 40 mg PO daily ASA 325 mg PO daily Glucophage 50 mg PO BID Vital Signs:  T-98.9 (O)          P= 110             R=32               BP= 90/60       SpO2=86% on RA Physical Exam: Neuro:             Anxious, but alert and oriented x3 Pulm:               Bilateral rales, labored CV:                 RRR; S1, S2, S3; tachycardic; PMI displaced laterally ABD:              Active bowel sounds; soft/non-tender; liver enlarged EXT:               2+ lower extremity edema; 1+ peripheral pulses INTEG:           Poor capillary refill; nail beds cyanotic; skin is diaphoretic Lab Results: Na= 133;         K=5.0;             C1=100;          CO2=22;          BUN=29;        Cr=1.8; Glucose=183            Hgb=9.2;         Hct=27.6;        WBC=11.2;     Plt=203           BNP=788 CPK=2900;     CKMB=432%;                        LDH=972;       Troponin=6 Diagnostic Tests: 12 lead ECG; Sinus tachycardia with left ventricular hypertrophy and ST elevation in leads V1, V2, V3, & V4 CXR:   Increased vascular markings in both lungs   Critical thinking exercises

  1. List your primary medical and nursing diagnoses for this patient.
  2. What area of the left ventricle is affected by this MI?
  3. What is your rationale for EACH of the abnormal physical assessment parameters, the abnormal laboratory results, and the abnormal diagnostic tests?
  4. What are your anticipated nursing interventions for this patient?

STAGE 2: Mr. Thomas is admitted to the CCU with a diagnosis of Acute MI with acute decompensated heart failure.  The following orders are obtained: Vital Signs q1h Continuous ECG monitor Bedrest Foley catheter Nitroglycerin IV infusion @ 10 mcg/min Dobutamine 2mcg/kg/min Heparin IV infusion @ 1000 units/hr PTT q6h and call results if <60 or > 90 CK isoenzymes q8h x3 Troponin level q12h x2 O2 at 2 1iters/min per NC—titrate for SpO2>91% Lopressor 25 mg PO BID Lasix 40mg IV q6h Ambien 5 mg PO qHS PRN sleep
