  • Cardiorespiratory System

    Detected changes in arterial gas content (CO2 & O2) and subsequent rises in ventilation are modulated by central command mechanism in the hypothalamus (Eldridge, 1994). There are several respiratory feedback mechanisms responsible for communicating with central command—namely—central chemoreceptors due to arterial pressures of CO2 (PCO2), or peripheral chemoreceptor carotid bodies as the result of changes in pH due fluctuating arterial pressures of O2 (PO2) and PCO2 in arterial blood (Eldridge,…

  • Dry Gangrene Research Paper

    life-threatening condition that arises when blood supply to a certain part of the body is interrupted for an extended time. When blood cannot move freely through the body, cells die and infection can develop. When this occurs, the result is localized death of soft tissue (necrosis). Interruption in blood supply may result from an injury or infection, or in people suffering from any long-lasting health problem affecting blood flow. Any condition that affects blood flow increases the risk of…

  • Ventricular Defects Case Study

    Examination of Ventricular Septal Defects and Arterial Aneurysms According to Maternal Child Nursing Care, 5th Edition, Chapter 47 – Cardiovascular Dysfunction, congenital heart defects occur in about 5 to 8 of every 1000 live births, and 2 to 3 of those affected will be symptomatic within the first year of life (Hockenberry, 2014). When looking at the different pathophysiologies of congenital heart defects, the most common form of defect is the ventricular septal defect or VSD and there are…

  • Small Bowel Obstruction Case Study

    intestinal tract nearest to the obstruction and the existence and severity of ischemia. The cause of small bowel obstruction include hernias, adhesions within the abdomen and tumors. The lumen near the obstruction fills with a massive amount of fluid and gas. The obstruction keeps water and electrolytes from properly absorbing. As a result, buldup of fluid occurs in the intestinal lumen from the vascular space. With small bowel obstruction distention occurs instantly. The distention is…

  • Metabolic Alkalosis Case Study

    fell at home and was taken to the ER. She was dehydrated and intravenous fluids were given to rehydrate her. An arterial blood gas (ABG) was drawn. The results of the ABG showed an acid-base disturbance. The patient’s acid-base disturbance was acute metabolic alkalosis. This is the most common disturbance in hospitalized patients (Thomas, 2016a). This was based on her arterial blood gas (ABG) results as well as the patient’s clinical presentation. Her pH was 7.5 (normal range 7.35- 7.45) which…
