Question7. Complete Medication template for each of the following…7. Complete Medication template for each of the following medications: (1) NTG SL, (2) Amlodipine, and (3) diltiazem IV. AFIB. Irregular Fast Case Study ProgressWhen you first admit G.P., the nurse places the client on telemetry and observes his cardiac rhythm. The rhythm has periods of faster rates than below. 8. Identify the rhythm: (6 second strip) after answering the questions below to analyze the rhythm.Rate: What is the rate?Regularity: Is the rate regular or irregular? Measure regularity using R waves.P-Wave examination: Is there a P wave before each QRS?P to R interval: Measure P to R interval, is it within normal limits? Is it consistent?QRS width: Is the QRS narrow or wide? Measure the duration of the QRS complex. What is the rhythm?What are the nurse’s top 3 responses once the rhythm is confirmed? https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmyfamilymedicinepractice.blogspot.com%2F2017%2F04%2Fintroduction-to-atrial-fibrillation.html&psig=AOvVaw3SebAaEvsSatOG0wlIvE35&ust=1601487475700000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=2ahUKEwi6qory847sAhVEIt8KHX-HD9QQr4kDegUIARDDAQ9. Explain the primary complication that could occur if this heart rhythm were not treated. Acute Myocardial infarction, blood clotting leading to DVT > PE >VE Stroke.    10. Review G.P.’s history. What conditions may have contributed to the development of this dysrhythmia? Weight gain, CAD, & higher but not quite abnormal K levels Treatments: · Lifestyle change > diet & physical activities · Stress management Interprofessional care · Dietician · Cardiologist  11. The nurse reviews G.P.’s lab test results and notes that all of them are within normal range, including troponin and creatinine phosphokinase levels.  His potassium level is 4.9 mEq/L.  Given this and his current dysrhythmia, what is the likely cause of the symptoms he has been experiencing this past week?     Case Study ProgressWithin the hour, G.P. converts with intravenous diltiazem (Cardizem) to sick sinus syndrome with long sinus pauses that cause lightheadedness and hypotension.  Sick sinus syndrome is the inability of the heart’s natural pacemaker (sinus node) to create a heart rate that’s appropriate for the body’s needs. It causes irregular heart rhythms (dysthymias).  12. What risks does the new rhythm pose for G.P.? Explain the reasons for your answers    Case Study ProgressBecause G.P.’s dysrhythmia is causing unacceptable symptoms, he is taken to surgery and a permanent DDDR pacemaker is placed and set at a rate of 70beats per minute (BPM).  13. What does the code DDDR mean?   14. What is the purpose of DDDR pacing?    15. The pacemaker insertion surgery places G.P. at risk for several serious complications.  List 3 potential problems you would monitor when caring for him.   16. G.P. will need some education regarding his new pacemaker.  What information will you give him before he leaves the hospital?   17. Complete a concept map that identifies 3 priority problems and collaborative/nursing care. (Responding: Take action) (Deliverable) (see assignment instructions). 18. Describe the teach-back process and the top 3 priorities on living with a pacemaker?  19. G.P. and his wife tell the nurse they have heard that people with pacemakers can have their hearts stop because of microwave ovens and cell phones. Where can you help them find more information?  Name 3 resources.  Case Study ProgressAfter discharge, G.P. is referred to a cardiac rehabilitation center to start an exercise program.  He will be exercise tested, and an individualized exercise prescription will be developed for him, based on the results of the exercise test.  (NG NCLEX What outcomes demonstrate interventions are working? (Reflecting)  20. What information will be obtained from a graded exercise (stress) test?     21. What is included in an exercise prescription?   Case Study OutcomeG.P. returns in 1 month for a pacemaker check.  He reports that he and his wife go for a walk at least 3 times a week at the mall, and he is hoping to start volunteering soon. He has lost 8 lbs. (3.6 kg). Harding and Snyder: Perfusion CS 5 ACS, Dysrhythmia and pacemakerReflecting/Analysis Compare and contrast the assessment and care among the dysrhythmias.Using the information including this case, compare and contrast the findings, treatment and care among the dysrhythmias.
