Answer:

The difference between a disease and a syndrome is that a disease is an established illness with a known cause, but a syndrome is collection of symptoms that may be present to varying degrees. Some syndromes are associated with a particular disease or disorder, and others have unknown or poorly-defined etiologies.

Question:

A patient has an oxygen saturation of 78%, heart rate 94 bpm, blood pressure is 170/89 and their last blood glucose reading two hours ago was 109. How would you approach an assessment for this patient and why?

Inactive

Answer:

A focused assessment approach is most appropriate for this patient. The oxygen saturation of 78% is far below the normal range and should be assessed first. Compromised airway and breathing is always a priority and should be addressed. Thought some of the other vitals are outside of an ideal range, they are not the first thing the nurse would assess.
