Patricia, Great points as you also noted there are various methods of classifying anemia. They are usually classified by their causes or by the changes that affect the size, shape, or substance of the erythrocyte. As the group has noted symptoms of decreased oxygen supply are abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and anorexia along with a low- grade fever (<101F). The results from a release of leukocyte pyrogens from ischemic tissues. Would you see these clinical symptoms in an acute onset or chronic situation?

Anemia

Anemia is a disease commonly seen in everyday medical practice, its occurrence accounts for around 2 to 4 billion cases globally due to vitamin deficiencies, chronic diseases, infections, and hemoglobin disorders among others. It reduces the number of red blood cells and hemoglobin jeopardizing the body’s oxygenation compromising several organs ( Jansen, 2019).

As per the present case scenario about a 50 years old patient presenting with fatigue, pallor, dyspnea on exertion, and palpitations, and a laboratory report of a low hematocrit 32, hemoglobin 9.7, and reticulocyte count low at 47% MCV of 78 and MCHC of 32.1. The individual s/s is due to a decrease in circulating oxygen that affects the heart, arteries, capillaries, and ventricles because the drop in RBC’s generates as well a decrease in blood volume that is compensated by the movement of interstitial fluid into the intravascular space expanding plasma. Thus, the heart cardiac output is affected to respond to the increased in metabolic needs which can lead to heart failure. In the pulmonary system, this increased demand generates an increase in the rate and depth of respiration where more oxygen is released generating shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness (McCance & Huether,2018). 

Proper diagnostic testing results vital; the patient’s hemoglobin (hgb) is low, as well as the mean corpuscular volume (MCV), and MCHC. Hence to further determine the etiology of this problem additional biomarkers will be checked: A complete CBC including, hemoglobin and hematocrit to determine the number or circulating blood cells. Iron in conjunction with transferrin, soluble transferrin receptors ( to differentiate the type of anemia), transferrin saturation, Mentzer index ( to differentiate between iron deficiency and beta-thalassemia), ferritin, vitamin B12, to assess for iron deficiency; reticulocytes ( chronic anemia), hepcidin-25, bioactive ( hereditary anemia, iron deficiency by the liver), hemoglobin electrophoresis ( suspicion of microcytic anemia) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) to determine hemoglobin mass per RBC (Jansen, 2019).

Patricia, great post. Let’s add some of the readings this week and expand your points. Through the years there have been many discussion, research and new treatments for asthma. However the exact cause of asthma is still not known. Researchers think some genetic and environmental factors interact to cause asthma, most often early in life. An inherited tendency to develop allergies, called atopy may be the most related diagnostic cause. If asthma or atopy runs in the patient’s family, exposure to irritants might make their airways more reactive to substances in the air are still theories. Some other factors might be more likely to cause asthma in certain people than in others. So why can we not find the cause?

  • Rhonda Johnstonyesterday at 3:27 PMPatricia, The key take home this week is to be able to identify the pathological processes in all of its specificity. Then we take the process and identify what parts and pieces are not working and identify the clinical s/s and then the appropriate treatment. It is this pathway that you are to begin to understand. This is why it is important to be able to breakdown the pathological process as it will be key to how you treat your patientYou post is accurate and included many key points. Let’s add a bit to your post….The chronically high levels of circulating neuroendocrine hormones such as catecholamines, renin, angiotensin, and aldosterone affects the myocardium directly, causing structural remodeling of the heart over the long. term. Many of these remodeling effects seem to be mediated by transforming growth factor. This results in a reduction of perfusion to the skeletal muscle causes atrophy of the muscle fibers. This can result in weakness, increased fatigueability and decreased peak strength – all contributing to exercise intolerance. What tests would you see ordered to diagnosis this pathological process? What pharmacological intervention would you use in this situation? Norris, T. L. (2019). Porth’s Pathophysiology: Concepts of altered health states (9thed.) Wolters Kluwer, Philadelphia. PA.Reply

  • Let’s expand your thoughts a bit more…Most cancerous breast tumors are fixed, hard, and solitary. These are also typically non-tender. The sooner cancerous tumors are detected and treated, the better the patient outcome.  So the guidance notes that self-exams do not improve detection, neither does increasing the frequency of mammograms. So what have you found in your readings that would be the best advice for providers?

Patricia,Thanks for t he information you provided n your post. Let’s expand on your thoughts a bit more. In an autoimmune response, the healthy cells and tissues are destroyed, because the body’s ability to recognize itself is not working or malfunctioning. This results in the patient’s major systems malfunctioning and not able to function.  The pathology involves T cells and autoantibodies that create the autoimmune diseases. An example is Type I diabetes. What happens in this situation?

  • Vital Signs: Afebrile; respiratory rate, pulse, and blood pressure all normal
  • Skin: Flaking erythematous rash on the flexor surfaces of both arms
  • Head, Eyes, Ears, Nose, and Throat: Tender over maxillary sinuses; sclera red and slightly swollen with frequent tearing; outer nares with red irritated skin; internal nares with red, boggy, moist mucosa and one medium-sized polyp on each side; pharynx slightly erythematous with clear postnasal drainage (NOTE: Nasal polyps are common in allergic rhinitis. They are edematous protrusions of the mucosa that are infiltrated with neutrophils, eosinophils, and plasma cells.)
  • Lungs: Clear to auscultation and percussion

Initial Post: Answer the following questions about Anna Sanchez and her condition.

  1. What evidence suggests that Anna does not have an acute severe infection?
  2. If Anna has allergic rhinitis, what type of hypersensitivity reaction is involved?
  3. A skin test indicates that Anna is allergic to cat dander. Two months ago, Anna’s roommate brought home a cat. Why didn’t Anna’s symptoms start when the cat entered the household, rather than 3 weeks later?
  4. What class of antibodies bind to the mast cells?
  5. What physiological mechanisms caused the redness of Anna’s nasal mucosa?
  6. What mechanisms caused Anna’s clear postnasal drainage?

Response # 1: Carefully read the initial posts made by the other students in your small group.

  • Respond to the initial post of one of your peers in your discussion group. Identify 1 differential diagnosis for the case study presented. Identify the underlying pathophysiology and clinical presentation of the Differential Diagnosis you identified in your response to your peers. Please Note: you may not duplicate a differential diagnosis posted by another peer in the discussion thread.

Response #2: Go back into your own initial post.

  • Identify what diagnostic testing or additional information you might need to establish a diagnosis.
  • Identify what you believe is the correct diagnosis for the patient in the case study with the rationale for your response.
  • Identify why the differential diagnoses left by your peers are or are not the correct diagnosis and support this with evidence from research and from the case posted by your peers.

Discussion Assignment

This discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week based on the course competencies covered.
