Assignment: i-Human Case Study: Evaluating and Managing Cardiovascular ConditionsBecause cardiovascular conditions are preventable and manageable, it is important that the advanced practice nurse use both their understanding of the cardiovascular system and the impact of patient factors and behaviors that might increase patient risk of such conditions. This critical information can guide you in immediately identifying signs and symptoms that can inform differential diagnoses and lead to identification of appropriate treatment options and a treatment plan.For this Case Study Assignment, you will analyze an i-Human simulation case study about an adult patient with a cardiovascular condition. Based on the patientâ€™s information, you will formulate a differential diagnosis, evaluate treatment options, and create an appropriate treatment plan for the patient.To prepare:Review this weekâ€™s Learning Resources. Consider how to assess, diagnose, and treat patients with cardiovascular conditions. Access i-Human from this weekâ€™s Learning Resources and review this weekâ€™s i-Human case study. Based on the provided patient information, think about the health history you would need to collect from the patient. Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient’s condition. Reflect on how the results would be used to make a diagnosis. Identify three to five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient. Consider the patientâ€™s diagnosis. Think about clinical guidelines that might support this diagnosis. Develop a treatment plan for the patient that includes health promotion and patient education strategies for patients with cardiovascular conditions.
Assignment:As you interact with this weekâ€™s i-Human patient, complete the assigned case study. For guidance on using i-Human, refer to the i-Human Graduate Programs Help link within the i-Human platform.
