Assignment: Tiredness and morning headaches
A young 33-year-old man is admitted to your unit with a chief complaint of “tiredness and morning headaches” even after sleeping. How you would perform a comprehensive analysis of symptoms? What are the possible causes of the symptoms? What examinations would be crucial to determine the cause of his problems? Why
I would first introduce myself, assuring for privacy and comfort. After taking a detailed health history and acknowledging the complaints of tiredness and morning headaches, I would assess for the following symptoms: loud snoring, being awaken from sleep by gasping or choking, dry mouth or sore throat after waking, asking if anyone has told the patient of having episodes of not breathing while asleep, having mood changes and high blood pressure.
Assessments include height and weight, checking BMI for overweight. Blood pressure would be assessed.
One possible cause could be sleep apnea. One examination to determine if it is sleep apnea would be the overnight pulse oximetry. If this comes back positive, the next step would be a polysomnography, which is an overnight sleep study where you are hooked up to certain monitors that tract your heart, brain, lungs, oxygen levels and arm and leg movements.
You may be referred to an ENT doctor to rule out any blockage to your throat or nose.
If positive for sleep apnea, some changes should be started: lose weight, exercise and monitor alcohol intake. You may also be recommended to wear a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure)

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
