IHUMAN TOTAL CASE SCORES: #1: 74% List the differential diagnoses (Must not Miss/Leading/Alternate/Concluding) #2: 58% Based on patient’s age/risk factors, what preventive screening would be recommended at today’s or a future visit: Grade A Screening for High BP in adults 18 years and older HIV screening although not currently sexually active, he has been in the past. Grade B Screening for unhealthy drug use in adults 18 years and older *Include ICD 10 codes after each Must not Miss/Leading The myalgia, fatigue, low grade fever, nonproductive cough, ear pain and sore throat is more indicative of influenza as well as the positive Influenza PCR test. Influenza (J11.1) is the most conclusive diagnosis. Covid – 19 (U07.1) must be ruled out since there is a pandemic and the symptoms of cough and sore throat as well as the myalgia. Negative test rules out COVID-19 Group A Streptococcus pharyngitis (Strep throat) (B95.0) ruled out by negative strep antigen test. Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) (J18.9) – negative hypoxia and productive cough makes it a less like diagnosis. Alternate Asthma: although there is a medical history of asthma, it has been latent, and the physical examination did not show any wheezing. (ICD10data.com, 2021) *Case Study Template adapted from the following sources: NP H & P (ReNursing.edu, 2018) and IHuman Patients by Kaplan (2020) Reflective Thinking Exercises (start a new page) 1. History-Taking: Describe your history taking scores and strengths you identified when gathering data. What went well? Also, describe your challenges in gathering data and list areas of your personal needed improvement. Note any missed areas that could be safety issues/errors leading to missed or incorrect diagnosis. The history taking score for my final attempt was 70%. The History taking is overwhelming to me. Going through the available questions was difficult at first but with all the attempts I was able to identify where to locate various questions. It was difficult to really narrow down the questions that were pertinent to this patient. I exhausted the number of questions I could ask during one of the attempts. To do better in subsequent cases I need to limit my history to very targeted questions that is relevant to the patient’s complaints. 2. Physical Exam: Describe your physical exam scores and strengths you identified when performing selected exams on your patient. Did you perform an excessive amount of exam items? Did you miss any pertinent exam items identified in the case leading to diagnosis? Note any missed areas that could be safety issues/errors leading to missed or incorrect diagnosis. Physical exam was a bit more tolerable. The score for the last attempt was 82%. Although I was more confident, I found myself missing documentation for areas that required that I documented my findings. I will be more attentive in upcoming cases and also carefully review resources on how to perform certain assessments more accurately. 3. Evidence-based decision making: Discuss the evidence-based resource(s) utilized while seeing the patient. These can be your course readings/IHUMAN lessons/other course info as well as any external articles or supporting literature to help you gain a better understanding of categorizing possible diagnoses in your case. How did you use the symptoms/patient presentation, plus your exam findings, to formulate a differential diagnosis list? What specific feedback from previous case studies has your faculty identified that you plan to incorporate on future cases to avoid pitfalls in data gathering or decision making? What will you do differently to improve? The required text readings from S2D and Dain was very beneficial especially S2D with identifying differential diagnosis. Dain was helpful in identifying questions to ask and follow up questions in the history taking section. I also used previous information from pathophysiology and pharmacotherapeutics. The expert feedback from IHuman helped me to better formulate my diagnosis and put together my notes. References ICD10Data.com. 2021 ICD-10-CM Codes. https://www.icd10data.com/ICD10CM/Codes.
