Draw a Endocrine Concept/Patho Map
Ms. S is a 64 year-old retiree who was admitted to the hospital for an emergency splenectomy following a fall. Her medical history includes: Type II diabetes for the past 10 years, hypothyroidism, atrial fibrillation, and obesity. Until her fall, she had not had any problems related to her spleen. Her mother was also a diabetic and all of her siblings have atrial fibrillation. Mediations: Synthroid, Actos, atenolol, and a baby aspirin a day.
It is now three days post op and the large abdominal wound from her surgery is red and draining yellow drainage. Her vital signs are 145/80; HR-90, R-20, T-100.8 F.
In your concept/patho map be sure to include all the steps from the risk factors to the development of the diseases or problems following her splenectomy. The more details you can provide the better.
