Dka & diagnostic testing: | Nursing homework help

 

You will need to think about multifaceted discharge planning for a 45-year-old, married African American male and an 85-year-old, widowed African American male who were admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of diabetes ketoacidosis (DKA).

In your initial post, please answer the following:

  1. What are the priority areas of concern for the individual in an advanced nursing role to consider in reviewing the expected diagnostic test results for an individual suffering from DKA, which may include changes to acid-balance, bicarbonate level, and electrolyte balances?
  2. The usual treatment options for individuals suffering from DKA

Explain your rationale for your choices, citing resources from the literature.

Answer the following question as assigned by your role in the discussion:

  • Write a succinct summary of the 45-year-old, married, African American male’s status and the 85-year-old, widowed, African American male’s status to present to the team as a plan of care. What would you expect to happen to these patients within the next 48 hours? Please be sure to identify any strengths and gaps in the plan of care.

Each of the 3 answers needs to be 2 paragraphs long (about 150-200 words per paragraph) answering the questions with references from: 

McCance, K. L., & Huether, S. E. (2019). Pathophysiology: The biologic basis for disease in  adults and children (8th ed.). St. Louis, MO: Elsevier.
