Mrs. Smith is in for her yearly physical and was just informed that she is pre-diabetic. She also has a past medical history of obesity, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. What are the best lifestyle changes Mrs. Smith can implement over the next several months to improve the picture of her overall health?
Mrs. Smith will have to evaluate her physical activity, diet, and medication compliance. Daily exercise is high encouraged and can be as light as walking. For her diet, she will have to look into her daily intake of added sugars and processed foods, while adding more vegetables and whole grains. To better manage her hypertension and hyperlipidemia, she will have make sure she is following the providers instructions on how to take any medication she may be on, including the dose and frequency.
Mr. Smith is a 65 year old male with a past medical history of diabetes mellitus type 1, hypertension, and atrial fibrillation. He was admitted to the hospital for a cardiac ablation that is scheduled for 6:00 am. He has been NPO since midnight. Nurse Kelly went in to Mr. Smith's room around 0500 to find him unresponsive with positive pulses and breath sounds. A rapid response was called and other nurses have arrived in the room to assist. If you were Nurse Kelly, what would be your priorities in this situation? Given the patient's past medical history, what would you be concerned about?
If I were Nurse Kelly, I would want to get vital signs, a blood glucose, and an EKG for my patient. With the provider's orders, I would place the patient on nasal cannula while he is unstable, monitoring that he is able to maintain his airway throughout this. I would be concerned about a low blood sugar given the patient's history of DM and his NPO status since midnight. I would also be concerned that his heart rate and rhythm would be out of normal limits
