Discussion: Mechanisms of diarrhea
You are an RN working in an Urgent Care. Below is just a brief history of a client with information limited on purpose to encourage you to utilize your critical thinking skills.
Subjective information: Miranda is a 26-year-old female who presents to the office with the complaint of diarrhea for 6 days. She states she has lost 8 pounds in one week. She is not currently taking any medications. She has tried over-the-counter remedies for the treatment of her diarrhea with minimal improvement. She is generally healthy with only a sinus and bladder infection on occasion.
Objective information: She does not have a temperature, BP is 102/60, Pulse is 98, and her bowel sounds are present in all quadrants and are hyperactive. Her abdomen is soft and mildly tender.
In a 2-3 page paper, answer the following questions. Include, at minimum, two peer reviewed sources (in-text citation), and provide a Reference page (not included in the page count) using APA Editorial format.
What is the pathogenesis of diarrhea?
Describe the different mechanisms of diarrhea (osmotic, secretory and motility).
With the limited information provided, what additional information would you like to obtain from her history and physical to help direct your care plan? Describe why obtaining this information would be helpful in leading you to a nursing diagnosis.
What infectious or inflammatory conditions could she be suffering from?
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.
