[SOLVED] Asthma Management
J.S. is a 42-year-old man who lives in the Midwest and is highly allergic to dust and pollen and has a history of mild asthma. J.Ss wife drove him to the emergency room when his wheezing was unresponsive to his fluticasone/salmeterol (Advair) inhaler. J.S. was unable to lie down, and began to use accessory muscles to breathe. J.S. is immediately started on 4 L oxygen by nasal cannula and intravenous (IV) D5W at 75 mL/hr. A set of arterial blood gases is sent to the laboratory. J.S. appears anxious and says that he is short of breath. Vital signs BP = 152/84 HR = 124 bpm RR = 42 Temp = 100.40F ABGs pH = 7.31 PaCO2 = 48 HCO3 = 26 PaO2 = 55 Investigate the condition of asthma and the manifestations of the disease.
