Document Content and Description Below

Assignment 1: Case Study Assignment: Assessing the Head, Eyes, Ears, Nose, and Throat Most ear, nose, and throat conditions that arise in non-critical care settings are minor in nature. However, su... btle symptoms can sometimes escalate into life-threatening conditions that require prompt assessment and treatment. Nurses conducting assessments of the ears, nose, and throat must be able to identify the small differences between life-threatening conditions and benign ones. For instance, if a patient with a sore throat and a runny nose also has inflamed lymph nodes, the inflammation is probably due to the pathogen causing the sore throat rather than a case of throat cancer. With this knowledge and a sufficient patient health history, a nurse would not need to escalate the assessment to a biopsy or an MRI of the lymph nodes but would probably perform a simple strep test. In this Case Study Assignment, you consider case studies of abnormal findings from patients in a clinical setting. You determine what history should be collected from the patients, what physical exams and diagnostic tests should be conducted, and formulate a differential diagnosis with several possible conditions. To Prepare · You will be assigned to a specific case study for this Case Study Assignment. (See below the case study) · Also, your Case Study Assignment should be in the Episodic/Focused SOAP Note format rather than the traditional narrative style format. (see exemplar as a guide and the template to use) · Regarding the case study, you were assigned: · Consider what history would be necessary to collect from the patient. · Consider what physical exams and diagnostic tests would be appropriate to gather more information about the patient's condition. How would the results be used to make a diagnosis? · Identify at least five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient. CASE STUDY 2: Focused Throat Exam Lily is a 20-year-old student at the local community college. When some of her friends and classmates told her about an outbreak of flu-like symptoms sweeping her campus during the past 2 weeks, Lily figured she shouldn't take her 3-day sore throat lightly. Your clinic has treated a few cases similar to Lily's. All the patients reported decreased appetite, headaches, and pain with swallowing. As Lily recounts these symptoms to you, you notice that she has a runny nose and a slight hoarseness in her voice but doesn't sound congested. The Assignment 1. Use the Episodic/Focused SOAP Template and create an episodic/focused note about the patient in the case study. 2. Provide evidence from the literature to support diagnostic tests that would be appropriate for each case. 3. List five different possible conditions for the patient's differential diagnosis and justify why you selected each. 4. You are required to include at least five evidence-based peer-reviewed journal articles or evidenced based guidelines which relates to this case to support your diagnostics and differentials diagnoses. 5. Be sure to use correct APA 7th edition formatting.
