Case Study 2- Information for your diagnosis and treatment.docxCase:
Patient M is an active woman, 70 years of age, who lost consciousness
and collapsed at home. Her daughter, who was visiting her at the time, did
not witness the collapse but found her mother on the floor, awake,
confused, and slightly short of breath. The daughter estimated that she
called EMS within 5 minutes after the collapse, and EMS responded within
10 minutes. EMS evaluated Patient M, drew blood for a glucose level.
On presentation in the emergency department, Patient M is immediately
triaged. Because Patient M is still somewhat confused, her daughter is
asked to provide information on the patient’s history. The daughter reports
that her mother had had an episode of sudden-onset numbness and
tingling in the right limb, with slight confusion and slurred speech, 3 days
previously. The episode lasted only 5 minutes, and Patient M had not
called her primary care physician. Additional information provided by the
daughter indicates that Patient M has been treated for hypertension for 10
years but notes that she is often not compliant with her antihypertensive
medicine, a diuretic. The patient has never smoked, drinks occasionally,
and is of normal weight.
On physical examination, Patient M’s blood pressure is 150/95 mm Hg.
She has pain in her left arm and a slight headache. There are slight carotid
bruits on the right. She is assessed with use of the NIHSS and found to
have left hemiparesis and left visual/spatial neglect. The results of
laboratory tests, including a complete blood count, prothrombin time,
serum electrolyte levels, cardiac biomarkers, and renal function studies,
are all within normal limits. CT of the brain indicates a thrombus in a
branch of the right internal carotid artery, with approximately 50%
occlusion due to atherosclerosis. There is an area of infarction in the right
anterior hemisphere. There is no evidence of a subarachnoid hemorrhage.
