It wouldn’t do a chest x-ray which I don’t understand and then I ordered a CMP and it gave me no results. I mean come ON!!!!! **Drug induced SIADH Hyponatremia in the cancer patient is usually caused by the syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH), which develops more frequently with SCLC than with other malignancies.

In iHuman, you will interact with the virtual patient, collection a history, perform a physical exam, order tests, make differential diagnoses, and make a management plan. This term, the iHuman modules will be different than the last term, in case you may have heard from previous students. You will be able to order more than one round of tests, and your questions will be limited to a certain number. There will be other improvements as well that I think will enrich the experience for you. Please note that it will take a few days for everyone to receive their iHuman log in credentials. Below is the template you are required to follow EXAMPLE Week 8 I Human I-Human Template Primary Diagnosis: Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA) Status/Condition: Critical Code Status: Full Code Resuscitation Status Allergies: No known allergies Admit to Unit: ICU to monitor/manage tachycardia, insulin gtt, electrolyte imbalances, etc. Activity Level: Bedrest until electrolytes have been corrected and vital signs are more stable. Diet: NPO until anion gap is closed. Need to monitor for nausea/vomiting/aspiration risk IVF: -Start Levophed (Norepinephrine) 2 mcg/min and titrate to keep MAP >65 (CEUfast Inc., 2019) -Fluid resuscitation is needed considered the patient is extremely dehydrated. The vascular space needs to be repleted. -Rapid IV infusion of 1-3L 0.9% NS. Replete to raise blood pressure, keep adequate UOP, and to correct hyperglycemia (Brutsaert, 2019). **Patients will need a minimum of 3 L NS boluses over the first 5 hours of treatment (Brutsaert, 2019). -Once adequate UOP and blood pressure is stable switch to 1/2NS@75cc/hr IVF (Brutsaert, 2019). -If/when the blood glucose drops < 200mg/dL need to switch IVF to D5 ½ NS @75cc/hr (Brutsaert, 2019). Follow Up Lab tests : -Q1H blood sugar checks to maintain blood sugar 120-160 (Brutsaert, 2019). -Q1H vital signs -Lactic acid Q4H to monitor acidosis and ensure that it is titrating down (Brutsaert, 2019). -Chem panels Q4H to monitor/replete electrolytes, monitor hydration status via renal function -Repeat EKG to check for ischemic changes and ensure that tachycardia is resolving Diagnostic testing: -Order CXRAY to ensure that the patient is not being fluid overloaded. -CT scan brain if patient’s mental status declines (Brutsaert, 2019). BMP revealed: Hypernatremia, elevated BUN to Cr ratio (57)  Elevated serum Na 148  Elevated blood glucose 566  Elevated BUN 86  Elevated Cr 1.5  Elevated anion gap 30 CBC WNL EKG revealed: ST, no evidence of ischemia, left ventricle hypertrophy HbA1c: Elevated at 10.3% UA revealed:  Very pale yellow urine  >800 osmolarity  +4 urine glucose Lipid profile revealed:  Cholesterol 250  HDL 40  LDL 165  Triglycerides 200 Free water deficit = 0.5 x 101 / (148/140) -1 = 2.9LConsults: **After a 24 hour period involve a few consults to help manage the patient better and to set her up for future care -If patient is unable to tolerate PO intake after being weaned off insulin gtt will need a nutrition consult for diet recommendations (Brutsaert, 2019). -Considering this is the patient’s diagnosis of DKA and diabetes, it is imperative to get a Endocrinologist on board as well as diabetes healthway team to educate the patient about diabetes and the complications that can go along with it if not properly managed (Brutsaert, 2019). Patient Education and Health Promotion: -Keep up to date on immunizations -Educate on the importance to remain abstinent from smoking -Educate on all the risks that are associated with smoking -Educate on the importance of decreasing alcohol intake and the risks that come with prolonged use to ETOH or Tobacco abuse -Educate about diabetic neuropathy and the importance to keep feet clean and dry constantly (Kreider, 2018). -Educate patient on how to check their blood sugar and how they need to monitor it every 4H especially before meals in order to accurately give themselves the correct dose of SQ insulin. -Educate about the different types of insulin and what they are for. Discharge planning and required follow-up care: -Involve a discharge planner to help coordinate with the patient and the hospital to find health insurance so the patient can seek out the care she needs in order to manage her diabetes effectively. -Follow up with PCP for overall health in one week -Schedule first appointment with endocrinologist to learn more about diabetes and to be able to be educated on how to best manage diabetes. -Hgb A1C needs to be rechecked in 3 months (Kreider, 2018). -If symptoms return, contact endocrinologist (Kreider, 2018). -Ensure that Diabetes way healthcare team is involved in her new diagnosis of diabetes and how to count calories and carbs to better control and monitor their diabetes (Kreider, 2018). -Ensure proper handwashing -Avoid people who are ill/sick References Brutsaert, E.
