Document the abnormal physical exam findings

Document the abnormal physical exam findings. For this assignment, you are to complete a clinical case – narrated PowerPoint report that will follow the SOAP note example provided below. The case report will be based on an assigned clinical case scenario.

You are to approach this clinical scenario as if it is a real patient in the clinical setting.

Instructions:

Step 1 – Read the assigned clinical scenario and using your clinical reasoning skills, decide on the diagnoses. This step informs your next steps.
Step 2 – Document the given information in the case scenario under the appropriate sections, headings, and subheadings of the SOAP note.
Step 3 – Document all the classic symptoms typically associated with the diagnoses in Step 1. This information may NOT be given in the scenario; you are to obtain this information from your textbooks. Include APA citations.

Example of Steps 1 – 3:
You decided on Angina after reading the clinical case scenario (Step 1)
Review of Symptoms (list of classic symptoms):
CV: sweating, squeezing, pressure, heaviness, tightening, burning across the chest starting behind the breastbone
GI: indigestion, heartburn, nausea, cramping
Pain: pain to the neck, jaw, arms, shoulders, throat, back, and teeth
Resp: shortness of breath
Musculo: weakness

Step 4 – Document the abnormal physical exam findings typically associated with the acute and chronic diagnoses decided on in Step 1. Again, this information may NOT be given. Cull this information from the textbooks. Include APA citations.

Example of Step 4:
You determined the patient has Angina in Step 1
Physical Examination (list of classic exam findings):
CV: RRR, murmur grade 1/4
Resp: diminished breath sounds left lower lobe

Step 5 – Document the diagnoses in the appropriate sections, including the ICD-10 codes, from Step 1. Include three differential diagnoses. Define each diagnosis and support each differential diagnosis with pertinent positives and negatives and what makes these choices plausible. This information may come from your textbooks. Remember to cite using APA.

Step 6 – Develop a treatment plan for the diagnoses. Only use National Clinical Guidelines to develop your treatment plans. This information will not come from your textbooks. Use your research skills to locate appropriate guidelines. The treatment plan mustaddress the following:
a) Medications (include the dosage in mg/kg, frequency, route, and the number of days)
b) Laboratory tests ordered (include why ordered and what the results of the test may indicate)
c) Diagnostic tests ordered (include why ordered and what the results of the test may indicate)
d) Vaccines administered this visit & vaccine administration forms given,
e) Non-pharmacological treatments
f) Patient/Family education including preventive care
g) Anticipatory guidance for the visit (be sure to include exactly what you discussed during the visit; review Bright Futures website for this section)
h) Follow-up appointment with a detailed plan of f/u

CLINICAL CASE SCENARIO 

A 5-year-old boy presents to your clinic with a 1-day history of refusing to use his left arm. His father states that his son and his older sister were cared for by a babysitter the previous day. The babysitter said she had been playing with the children in the front yard when the patient ran after a ball that was rolling toward the street. She grabbed the patient’s left forearm and pulled him away from the street. Thereafter, the patient was irritable and holding his left arm close to his body with the elbow in a flexed position. On physical examination, the child has no bony tenderness, erythema, or swelling of the joints, but on passive motion, the child resists and cries in pain. Today, his vitals are as follows: weight 40.5 lbs, height 43.0 inches, BP 110/76, HR 100, RR 26, and Temperature is 98.6 F.
