Introduction:
Mrs. X is a 72-year-old Caucasian female who presented to the local hospital with a complaint of falling in the bathroom. She has a history of arthritis and cardiovascular disease which was diagnosed five months ago. She had fractured 2 ribs and has a non-ve
al sign of pain. She has symptoms of Venous Thrombosis.
Risk factors:
Arthritis causes individuals to be impaired by damaging joints, bones, and muscles, leading to a poor reaction to daily activities. Burmester and Pope (2017 ) define arthritis as any condition that only affects the joints and causes inflammation while rheumatic disorders or diseases affect the joints, ligaments, bones, muscles, and tendons. According to Feinglass, Nelson, Lawther, and Chang (2016), patients succumb to many disadvantages, including the inability to bathe or dress the difficulty of walking due to joint inflammation and the inability to perform basic tasks such as object handling. Also, the condition can damage vital body organs such as the kidneys, heart, human skin, eyes, and even the nervous system.
Venous thrombosis is a cardiovascular disease that occurs in the body when the thrombus is produced in one vein or several veins. VTE occurs mainly at the extremities and can lead to extreme leg pain. Several factors predispose the disease including an inherited deficiency in the clotting factors that make it easier for the blood to coagulate. Prolonged bed rest due to hospitalization paralysis may predispose a person to this condition because immobile conditions do not promote movement of the cuff muscles to circulate the blood. Hemodynamics may be affected by surgery or damage on the veins thereby rendering the blood vulnerable to coagulation. Many main risk factors for deep venous thrombosis include obesity, pregnancy, smoking, cancer, and heart failure.
As the patient gets older bleeding time and the partial thromboplastin time (PTT) are reduced by the coagulation system. The antithrombin III levels appear to decrease as factor levels II, VIII, and X are produced with age. Fi
inogen concentrations also increase and fi
inolysis declines. Such age-related changes are coming into and out of the bleeding system of the hemostatic system (Favaloro, Franchini & Lippi, 2014).
Origin and diagnosis:
Blood coagulation is based on many factors which improve blood clotting in the blood vessels of the body, including hemodynamic factors. Patient is usually diagnosed with a medical history, physical evaluation, and diagnostic testing. Physical tests which would most likely be used to...
