Case Study, Chapter 29, Management of Patients with Complications from Heart Disease 1. George Brown, 72 years of age, is a male patient who is admitted with the diagnosis of acute pulmonary edema secondary to acute left ventricular heart failure. The patient has a history of coronary artery disease that has been treated medically.
CASE STUDY: COPD. This piece of work will explore the comprehensively physical examination, differential diagnosis and various diagnostic tests to confirm the disease condition that is CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE.
This essay describes the nursing assessment and care planning provided to a patient with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), as experienced during a clinical placement. In addition, the health breakdown of the patient is described, followed by the delivery of an appropriate intervention and how this will be evaluated.
In a normal heart, the left ventricle maintains a circular shape. In pulmonary hypertension, the increased RV pressure moves the interventricular septum to the left. This makes the left ventricle appear with the characteristic D-Shape. This case study had the classic presentation of septal D flattening.
Case Study John, a 50-year-old Caucasian man, comes to the emergency department with worsening dyspnea, fever, cough, and increased purulent sputum production. He is accompanied by his sister, who says John has been experiencing shortness of breath, feeling fatigued and has not been thinking clearly.

Case Study, Chapter 29, Management of Patients with Complications From Heart Disease 1. George Brown, 72 years of age, is a male patient who is admitted with the diagnosis of acute pulmonary edema secondary to acute left ventricular heart failure.
The patient is a 76-year-old female with a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The patient is a married housewife with a 1 pack a day smoking history from age 15. The patient states that she, “only smokes a little to calm her nerves” though her husband still continues to smoke in the home.
Progressive disease state characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. Suspected in patients with a history of smoking, occupational and environmental risk factors, or a personal or family history of chronic lung disease. Presents with progressive shortness of breath, wheeze.
Group Case Study: Emphysema D.Z., a 65-year-old man, is admitted to a medical floor for exacerbation of his chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; emphysema). He has a past medical history of hypertension, which has been well controlled by Enalapril (Vasotec) for the past 6 years.
This case also points to the positivity of rheumatoid factor and anticardiolipin antibodies which served as a guide to investigate pulmonary hypertension associated with SLE1, though further studies need to be done on their sensitivity and specificity and thereby relevance of their prognostic use in future.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is recognised as a persistent airflow limitation that is associated with an enhanced, progressive and chronic inflammatory response. It occurs within the airways as a result of noxious particles or gases being inhaled (1-4).
The case definition of acute, unexplained respiratory distress syndrome consisted of either of the following findings in any patient presenting after January 1, 1993: unexplained adult respiratory distress syndrome or radiographic evidence of acute, bilateral, interstitial pulmonary infiltrates with hypoxemia (arterial oxygen saturation, less than 90 percent while the patient is breathing room.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary DiseaseChronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease involves the occurrence of chronic emphysema or bronchitis, two of frequently synchronized conditions of the lungs in which the there is narrowing of the airways over time. This restricts air flow from and to the lungs, consequently making a person experience shortness of breath.
Pulmonary Medicine - Case Study 67 Background --- Interstitial lung disease are rare in general, and in our setting, we seldom see cases or we seldom misdiagnosed cases of interstitial lung disease. These are the basic factors affecting the clinical decision making in interstitial lung disease and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Case Study and Clinical Highlight: Diagnosis of Pulmonary Involvement in Systemic Sclerosis Corinna Sison, MD.. High on the differential diagnosis is SSc lung involvement, including interstitial lung disease (ILD) and pulmonary vascular disease, which may occur separately or together. SSc-associated ILD commonly presents with the subacute.
The American Thoracic Society improves global health by advancing research, patient care, and public health in pulmonary disease, critical illness, and sleep disorders. Founded in 1905 to combat TB, the ATS has grown to tackle asthma, COPD, lung cancer, sepsis, acute respiratory distress, and sleep apnea, among other diseases.
