Chapter 46

Sixty-two–year-old James White is accompanied to the clinic today by his wife and son. James has had increasing problems with his memory for the past several months and has rapid mood swings for no apparent reason. His wife says that “he’ll go outside in the garden without his clothes on, and his speech is difficult to understand.” His son reports that at times James flaps his arms a lot and notices that he is unable to cut his food or tie his shoes. James was diagnosed with heart failure approximately 6 months ago.

a.            How would you explain to the White family what is occurring with James?

b.            What treatment modalities would be appropriate for James at this time?

Discussion: The Application of Data to Problem-Solving

In the modern era, there are few professions that do not to some extent rely on data. Stockbrokers rely on market data to advise clients on financial matters. Meteorologists rely on weather data to forecast weather conditions, while realtors rely on data to advise on the purchase and sale of property. In these and other cases, data not only helps solve problems, but adds to the practitioner’s and the discipline’s body of knowledge.

Of course, the nursing profession also relies heavily on data. The field of nursing informatics aims to make sure nurses have access to the appropriate date to solve healthcare problems, make decisions in the interest of patients, and add to knowledge.

In this Discussion, you will consider a scenario that would benefit from access to data and how such access could facilitate both problem-solving and knowledge formation.

To Prepare:

Reflect on the concepts of informatics and knowledge work as presented in the Resources.

Consider a hypothetical scenario based on your own healthcare practice or organization that would require or benefit from the access/collection and application of data. Your scenario may involve a patient, staff, or management problem or gap.

Post a description of the focus of your scenario. Describe the data that could be used and how the data might be collected and accessed. What knowledge might be derived from that data? How would a nurse leader use clinical reasoning and judgment in the formation of knowledge from this experience?

Share insights on how the factor you selected impacts the pathophysiology of the immune disorder your colleague selected.

Expand on your colleague’s posting by providing additional insights or contrasting perspectives based on readings and evidence.

Main Post

For this week’s discussion post, we will discuss the maladaptive and physiological responses of HIV and Lupus.  We will first discuss the pathophysiology of each and then further break the disorders down.  We will review how the gender factor might impact the pathophysiology of the disease.

Pathophysiology of HIV

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the viral infection that leads to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).    HIV is a blood-borne pathogen.  Modes of transmission for HIV are IV drug abuse, blood product transfusion or transmission, maternal-child transmission, and both homosexual and heterosexual populations can be affected.  HIV seeks and destroys the CD-4+ Th cells.  CD-4+ cells are essential or the cytotoxic T cell and plasma cell development.  Because of the CD-4+ destruction, there is a suppressed immune response which leads to AIDS (Huether & McCance, 2017).

Maladaptive Response and the Female Factor

Maladaptive responses to HIV are anxiety, disturbed thought processes, imbalanced nutrition, infective coping, social isolation, this is just a few.  Women make up more than half the cases worldwide.  Approximately 50,000 new cases of HIV present each year in the United States, 25% of these new cases are from heterosexual relationships with two-thirds of that percentage being women, highest among black women (Huether & McCance, 2017).

Pathophysiology of Lupus

Autoantibodies target specific self-antigens known as the initiation phase.  Environmental factors, such as sunlight, may be the cause for these triggers or viral infections like Epstein-Barr. SLE has long been thought to have an active genetic link.  In an average individual, apoptotic cells self destruct but for individuals with systemic lupus erythema (SLE) effectively immunize themselves with bad cells from their tissue.  The body fights itself instead of excreting the bad cells.  Propagation is the second phase of SLE; this phase involves the inflammatory response and tissue damage and can affect the heart, kidneys, brain, skin, and joints.  Thirdly is the flare stage and includes a quicker and more vigorous immune response; this stage may provoke disease flares (Hammer & McPhee, 2019).

Maladaptive Response and the Female Factor

Maladaptive responses to SLE might be altered image issues, fatigue related to chronic inflammation, and impaired skin integrity related to skin rash.  Women are ten times more likely to develop SLE than men.  African Americans have the highest risk, followed by Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans.  The primary age to develop SLE is between 20-40 years old (the childbearing years) with the most prevalent age being around 30 (Lewis, Bucher, Heitkemper, & Harding, 2017).
