Complex Patient Case Study B

Overview

Joan is a 78-year-old female who is scheduled with you today because she needs refills for her blood pressure medication. When you look at her record, you notice that she has not been in for 14 months. You notice that there are a number of missed appointments on record, but that she has been calling in for refills for her meds. During the last call, the office nurse told her she would need to come in for a visit to obtain the refills. Her record indicates that her medications at her last visit included Lisinopril/hctz 10/12.5 and simvastatin 20mg daily.

She reports that she takes her blood pressure medication “most of the time” but doesn’t take the simvastatin regularly because her neighbor developed liver problems from it. She remembers in the past that she was told she has a “touch of sugar.” She feels good but she wants to get checked out and wants to “get her act together” and start taking care of herself because her brother, who is 48, just found out that he has “clogged arteries.” She would like some help with quitting smoking as well. She also tells you that she had a “little heart attack” when she was 72.

Her vital signs are: BP: 168/94, pulse: 84 and regular, resp: 18

Height: 5’9” Weight: 221lbs

  2. What objective information do you need to obtain? Be      specific to her medical history and reason for presentation today.

  • Fasting Lipids: Total cholesterol: 242, LDL: 176, HDL:       36, triglycerides: 250
  • Fasting glucose: 162
