academic paper that investigates the case study
Order Description
Case study:
Ms Gladys Liu is a 45 year old woman has a medical history of HT and a 20 year history of T2DM which is no longer controlled by lifestyle changes.
• She has presented to the ED following a possible UTI for last few days.
• Her admission vital signs are T: 38.7°C, HR: 125bpm, RR 25, BP 100/65 mmHg
• On examination: left flank pain with a pain score of 8/10, cracked lips, poor appetite and sunken eyes on examination.

Question 1
• Explain the pathophysiology of the above signs and symptoms as they apply to Gladys.
Question 2
• Discuss the investigations/tests that you think should be ordered for Gladys and explain your rationale and expected results (including the normal ranges).

Question 3
• Discuss how the information and understanding you have collated in question 1 and 2 informs your nursing care of Gladys,

Grade: Pass/ Fail Overall Comment:
Case study

youhave learnt how to link signs and symptoms to anatomy and pathophysiology in order to understand themedical management and develop comprehensive relevant nursing care. In developing this understanding you have also explored linking the pharmacology through mode of action, dosages, adverse effects and nursing precautions.
For your supplementary assessment you are asked to present an academic paper that investigates the below case study with reference to the presented questions. The marking rubric will guide your development of this paper.
