NUR 641E Advanced Pathophysiology and Pharmacology for Nurse Educators

NUR 641E Week 2 Patient Educational Flyer

Design a 1-2 page patient education flyer/pamphlet for an alternative medicine/herbal product.

Describe the product, its intended use, side effects, adverse reactions, and safety issues (risks and benefits of using an alternative medication/herbal product versus a prescription medication).

The flyer should include at least two community and/or online resources for the patient to obtain more information.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

NUR 641E Week 3 Acid-Base Case Study Paper

Read the “Resource 1: Case Study.” Read below

Answer the questions at the end of the case study in a paper of 750-1,000 words.

Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Case Study =

A 22-year-old woman reports being “sick with the flu” for the past 8 days. She is vomiting several times every day, having difficulty keeping liquids or food down, and has been using more than the recommended dose of antacids in an attempt to calm the nausea. She has become severely dehydrated. After fainting at home, she was taken to a local hospital. An arterial blood gas sample was drawn and then an IV was placed to help rehydrate her. The arterial blood gas revealed the following:

Test Result Normal levels

pH 7.5 7.35 – 7.45

PaCO2 40 mm Hg 35-45 mm Hg

PaO2 95 mm Hg 80-100 mm Hg

SaO2 97% 95-100%

HCO3- 32 meq/liter 22-26 meq/liter

How would you classify the patient’s acid-base disturbance and explain why?

Given the case study, what are the possible factors causing this acid-base disturbance? Explain the pathophysiology created by these factors.

How would the renal and respiratory systems try to compensate for this acid-base disturbance?

What pharmacologic intervention is commonly used to correct this acid-base disturbance? Describe the pharmacological actions.

Describe the educational needs for this patient and what your approach will be.

NUR 641E Week 4 Patient Interview Paper

Interview a patient with a chronic pulmonary health condition who is on at least two medications.

In a 1,350-1,600-word paper, discuss the following:

Obtain a complete health history.
Obtain a complete medication history, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs or supplements.
Analyze the client’s current knowledge level of medications and compliance with the prescribed dosing and administration.
For each medication, identify the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, dose, route of administration, side effects, adverse reactions, any drug interactions, potential safety issues, and the impact on the client’s health status.
Formulate possible interventions related to lack of drug efficacy, lack of client knowledge, or client compliance issues as identified during the interview.
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
