2-3-page discussion based on a case study scenario which is listed below. Remember that this is an Advanced Pathophysiology class. We are not discussing treatment, management, or diagnostics. You will cover those aspects in Advanced Health Assessment and Pharmacology. Your pathophysiological processes should begin at the cellular level. You should be able to distinguish between genetics, gender, and racial/ethnic. When explaining symptoms, you are being asked what is going on within the body systems to cause these symptoms. Simply stating, “there is a genetic component and symptom A is classic for disease A” is not sufficient. You must be specific. Omit unneeded information. Synthesize the material to maximize the space in limiting your discussion to 3 pages. You do not need to restate the case as it takes up space; you will be referring to it throughout your discussion. Your instructions provide a general overview. However, your rubric tells you specifically what should be included in your discussions.

Week 4 Scenario: A 65-year-old patient is 8 days post op after a total knee replacement. Patient suddenly complains of shortness of breath, pleuritic chest pain, and palpitations. On arrival to the emergency department, an EKG revealed new onset atrial fibrillation and right ventricular strain pattern – T wave inversions in the right precordial leads (V1-4) ± the inferior leads (II, III, aVF).

Scenario: A 65-year-old patient is 8 days post op after a total knee replacement. Patient suddenly complains of shortness of breath, pleuritic chest pain, and palpitations. On arrival to the emergency department, an EKG revealed new onset atrial fibrillation and right ventricular strain pattern – T wave inversions in the right precordial leads (V1-4) ± the inferior leads (II, III, aVF). You are allowed to work ahead on the case study but not submit until the week in which it is due.

Develop a 2- to 3-page case study analysis, examing the patient symptoms presented in the case study. Be sure to address the following:
Explain both the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes of why the patient presents these symptoms.

The response accurately and thoroughly describes the patient symptoms.
The response includes accurate, clear, and detailed reasons, with explanation for both the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes supported by evidence and/or research, as appropriate, to support the explanation.

Explain how the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes interact to affect the patient.

The response includes an accurate, complete, detailed, and specific explanation of how the cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary pathophysiologic processes interact to affect the patient.

Explain any racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning.

The response includes an accurate, complete, detailed, and specific explanation of racial/ethnic variables that may impact physiological functioning supported by evidence and/or research, as appropriate, to support the explanation.

Written Expression and Formatting – Paragraph Development and Organization:
Paragraphs make clear points that support well-developed ideas, flow logically, and demonstrate continuity of ideas. Sentences are carefully focused—neither long and rambling nor short and lacking substance. A clear and comprehensive purpose statement and introduction are provided that delineate all required criteria.

Paragraphs and sentences follow writing standards for flow, continuity, and clarity.
A clear and comprehensive purpose statement, introduction, and conclusion are provided that delineate all required criteria.
