Case Study

Pulmonary Tuberculosis Class III

Submitted by: Padaoan, Jesusa A. Submitted to: Ms. Angeline Anastacio

Objectives General objective: The purpose of this study is to provide deeper theoretical and practical knowledge and information about pulmonary tuberculosis class III. Specific objectives: y y y To provide preventive measures on how to prevent tuberculosis. To provide a framework of study regarding the subject that can serve as the foundation of future studies. List actual symptoms that can happen during the course of the disease.

Introduction Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) is caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis). You can get TB by breathing in air droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person. This is called primary TB. Most people who develop symptoms of a TB infection first became infected in the past. However, in some cases, the disease may become active within weeks after the primary infection.

Symptoms The primary stage of TB usually doesn't cause symptoms. When symptoms of pulmonary TB occur, they may include: Cough (usually cough up mucus) Coughing up blood Excessive sweating, especially at night Fatigue Fever Unintentional weight loss Treatment
y y y y y y

The goal of treatment is to cure the infection with drugs that fight the TB bacteria. Treatment of active pulmonary TB will always involve a combination of many drugs (usually four drugs). All of the drugs are continued until lab tests show which medicines work best. The most commonly used drugs include:
y y y y

Isoniazid Rifampin Pyrazinamide Ethambutol

You may need to take many different pills at different times of the day for 6 months or longer. It is very important that you take the pills the way your health care provider instructed. When people do not take their TB medications as recommended, the infection becomes much more difficult to treat. The TB bacteria may become resistant to treatment, and sometimes, the drugs no longer help treat the infection.

Patient s Data Patient s Name: E. Age: 54 years old Gender: Male Civil Status: Married Nationality: Filipino Religion: Roman Catholic Ward: Isolation Room Date of Admission: August 10, 2011 Final Diagnosis: Pulmonary Tuberculosis Class III Nursing Assessment Family Health History: According to the patient, there is no history of any diseases in both the father and mother side. Past Health History: Patient E. was admitted last June 2 and was diagnosed with Partial tuberculosis with Pneumonia and Pulmonary disease. He went home against medical condition after 9 days of being admitted. Present Health History: Prior to admission, the patient s chief complaint was coughing and weight loss. He had a low grade fever and dry cough. Immunization record: The patient has a complete immunization record.

Gordon s Assessment Health Perception Before hospitalization: The patient had partial tuberculosis with pneumonia and pulmonary disease last June 2, 2011. He went home against medical advice after nine days of seeking medical help. The patient smokes everyday and drinks alcohol almost everyday. After hospitalization: The patient was brought to the hospital because the patient was showing signs of dry cough and weight loss. Interpretation: The patient has a poor health perception because when he was first admitted in the hospital last June 2, 2011 he went home against medical advice. Going against

medical advice can aggravate the condition of the patient which is what happened to patient E. Smoking and drinking alcohol can aggravate the patient s condition.

Nutritional-Metabolic Pattern Before hospitalization: The patient eats at least three times a day and he usually prefers vegetables with his meals. He eats his vegetables with a cup and a half of rice. He drinks at an estimate of 700 ml of water per day.

After hospitalization: The patient eats what the hospital provides for him and the occasional food brought by his family members. He usually finishes the food served for him. He drinks at around 1,400 ml of water. Interpretation: The patient s nutritional intake is almost the same before and after he was admitted in the hospital. His fluid intake increased. Patient E should add more protein to his diet.

Elimination Pattern Before hospitalization: Patient E defecates at least two times every day. His stool is usually brown in color (depends on what he ate that day). He urinates at least four times a day and the color of his urine is from clear to amber yellow (depends on what he drank that day). After hospitalization: The patient still defecates two times a day and his stool color is still brown. He still urinates at least four times a day but the color of his urine changed to orange because of his medications. Interpretation: One of the side effects of TB medications is the change in urine color which is normal for patient E because he is taking medications for TB.

Exercise-Activity Pattern Before hospitalization: Patient E still works at the age of 54. He mentioned that he exercise at least everyday for 15-30 minutes. After hospitalization: The patient has not gone to work for almost two weeks. He still manages to exercise by moving his arms around in a circular motion. Interpretation: The patient is able to move and exercise. His good exercise pattern is good for his health because blood can easily flow when exercising.

Sleep-rest pattern Before hospitalization: The patient mentioned that he used to sleep for at least 8 hours a day. He would be in bed at around 7 pm and he ll wake up at around 3. He doesn t take a nap in the afternoon. After Hospitalization: The patient is having a difficult time sleeping because nurses would interrupt his sleep and his not comfortable in the hospital. Interpretation: The patient has a normal sleeping pattern when before he was hospitalized. He doesn t get enough sleep when he was hospitalized which he needs in order to get better.

Cognitive-Perceptual Pattern Before hospitalization: Since patient E is the head of the family, he makes the decisions in his house. He was alert and active and can take action when problems arise. After hospitalization: The patient understands his situation the reason why he is seeking medical care and why he needs it. He was alert when I conducted an interview with him and he is well-oriented. Interpretation: The patient has a normal mental status. Even though he s still in the hospital he can still makes decisions and can cooperate and understand well.

Self-Perception Pattern Before hospitalization: The patient has a positive view of himself. He is contented with what he has. After hospitalization: When the patient was confined, he feels insecure of himself because he doesn t like getting sick. He sometimes thinks of committing suicide because of his insecurity. Interpretation: The patient has a low self-perception at the moment. He feels insecure because of the illness that he currently has.

Role-Relationship Pattern Before hospitalization: The patient lives with his wife and four children. He is the head of the family and he makes decisions for their betterment.

After hospitalization: Patient E s family members visit him all the time. They take turns on who will take care of him. They always bring him pasalubong like pastries. Interpretation: The patient has a very supportive family. He has a good relationship with every member of the family.

Coping/Stress Tolerance Before hospitalization: Whenever the patient is experiencing stress, he usually sits in a quiet place and rests and tries to forget all his problems. After hospitalization: The patient still feels insecure about his illness. He still sits on his hospital bed and he still tries to forget all his problems. Interpretation: Patient E is in an emotional state because of his illness.

Sexuality-Reproductive Pattern Before hospitalization: The patient is married and has four children. The patient has a normal sexual functioning. After hospitalization: The patient is unable to make sexual contact with his wife because of his current illness. Interpretation: The patient is feeling unsatisfied sexually because he hasn t made sexual contact with his wife because of his illness.

Value-Belief Pattern Before hospitalization: Patient E is a Roman Catholic, he also rarely goes to church. But he mentioned that his faith is only with God and he prays everyday. After hospitalization: Patient E continues to pray everyday. He even reads the bible during his alone time in the hospital Interpretation: Patient E has a strong faith in God.

Anatomy and Physiology The Respiratory System

Overview Cells in the body require oxygen to survive. Vital functions of the body are carried out as the body is continuously supplied with oxygen. Without therespiratory systemexchange of gases in the alveoli will not be made possible and systemic distribution of oxygen will not be made possible. The transportation of oxygen in the different parts of the body is accomplished by the blood of the cardiovascular system. However, it is the respiratory system that carries in oxygen to the body and transports oxygen from the tissue cells to the blood. Thus, cardiovascular system and respiratory system works hand in hand with each other. A problem in the cardiovascular system would affect the other and vice versa. Functional Anatomy of the Respiratory System Nose

The nose is the only external part of the respiratory system and is the part where the air passes through. During inhalation and exhalation, air enters the nose by passing through the external nares or nostrils. Nasal cavity is found inside the nose and is divided by a nasal septum. The receptors for the sense of smell, olfactory receptors are found in the mucosa of the slit-like superior part of the nasal cavity which is located beneath the ethmoid bone. Respiratory mucosa lines the rest of the nasal cavity and rests on a rich network of thin-walled veins that warms the air passing by. Pharynx The pharynx is a 13 cm long muscular tube that is commonly called the throat. This muscular passageway serves as a common food and air pathway. This structure is continuous with the nasal cavity anteriorly via the internal nares. Parts of pharynx: 1. Nasopharynx the superior portion of the pharynx. The pharyngotympanic tubes that drain the middle ear open in this area. This is the main reason why children who have otitis media may follow a sore throat or other tyoes of pharyngeal infections since the two mucosae of these regions are continuous. 2. Oropharynx middle part 3. Laryngopharynx part of pharynx that enters the larynx. When food enters the oral cavity, it travels to the oropharynx and laryngopharynx. However, instead of entering the larynx, the food is directed into the esophagus and not to the larynx. Tonsils clusters of lymphatic tissues found in the pharynx. Larynx The larynx is the one that routes the air and food into their proper channels. Also termed as the voice box, it plays an important role in speech. Glottis the slit-like passageway between the vocal folds. Trachea Also called the windpipe, the trachea is about 10 to 12 cm long or about 4 incheas and travels dwon from the larynx to the fifth thoracic vertebra. This structure is reinforced with C-shaped rings of hyaline cartilage and these rings are very important for the following purposes: 1. The open parts of the rings abut the esophagus that allows the structure to expand anteriorly when a person swallows a large size of food. 2. The solid portions of the C-rings are supporting the walls of the trachea to keep it patent or open even though pressure changes during breathing. The trachea is lined with ciliated mucosa that primarily serves for this purpose: To propel mucus loaded with dust particles and other debris away from the lungs towards the throat where it can either be swallowed or spat out. Main Bronchi The main bronchi, both the right and the left, are both formed by tracheal divisions. There is a slight difference between the right and left main bronchi. The right one is wider, shorter and straighter than the left. This is the most common site for an inhaled foreign object to become lodged. When air reaches the bronchi, it is already warmed, cleansed of most impurities and well humidified. Lungs

The lungs are fairly large organs that occupy the most of the thoracic cavity. The most central part of the thoracic cavity, the mediastinum, is not occupied by the lungs as this area houses the heart. Apex the narrow superior portion of each lung and is located just below the clavicle Base the resting area of the lung. This is a broad lung area that rests on the diaphragm. Divisions of the Lungs The lungs are divided into lobes by the presence of fissures. The left lung has two lobes while the right lung has three. Pleural Layers Visceral pleura also termed as the pulmonary pleura and covers each surface of the lings. Parietal pleura covers the walls of the thoracic cavity. Pleural fluid a slippery serous secretion that allows the lungs to slide along over the thorax wall during breathing movements and causes the two pleural layers to cling together. Bronchioles smallest air-conducting passageways. Bronchial tree or respiratory tree a network formed due to the branching and rebranching of the respiratory passageways within the lungs. Alveoli air sacs. This is the only area where exchange of gases takes place. Millions of clustered alveoli resembles bunches of grapes and these structures make up the bulk of the lungs. Respiratory Zone this part includes the respiratory bronchioles, alveolar ducts, alveolar sacs, alveoli. Physiology of Respiration The respiratory primarily supplies oxygen to the body and disposes of carbon dioxide through exhalation. Four events chronologically occur, for respiration to take place. 1. Pulmonary ventilation this process is commonly termed as breathing. With pulmonary ventilation, air must move out into and out of the lungs so that the alveoli of the lungs are continuously drained and filled with air. 2. External respiration this is the exchange of gases or the loading of oxygen and the unloading of carbon dioxide between the pulmonary blood and alveoli. 3. Respiratory gas transport this is the process where the oxygen and carbon dioxide is transported to the and from the lungs and tissue cells of the body through the bloodstream. 4. Internal respiration in internal respiration the exchange of gases is taking place between the blood and tissue cells. Mechanics of Breathing Breathing, also called pulmonary ventilation is a mechanical process that completely depends on the volume changes occurring in the thoracic cavity. Thus, a when volume changes pressure also changes, and this would lead to the flow of gases equalizing with the pressure. Inspiration also called inhalation. This is the act of allowing air to enter the body. Air is flowing into the lungs with this process. Inspiratory muscles are involved with inspiration which includes: 1. The diaphragm 2. External intercostals These muscles contract when air is flowing in and thoracic cavity increases. When the diaphragm contracts it slides inferiorly and is depressed. As a result the thoracic cavity

increases. The contraction of the external intercostal muscles lifts the rib cage and thrusts the sternum forward. This increases the anteroposterior and lateral dimensions of the thorax. Expiration also called expiration. It the process of breathing out air as it leaves the lungs. This process causes the gases to flow out to equalize the pressure inside and outside the lungs. Under normal circumstances, the process of expiration is effortless.

Radiographic Findings FF- up study since 02 June 11 shows both lungs are still hyper aerated, progression of the previous varisized thin walled cystic lucencies are seen in the entire left lung, right upper to midlungs. The tracheal air column is tracted to the right. Heart is not enlarged Aorta is not dilated Diaphragm & Left sular are intact The rest of the visualized chest structures are unremarkable. Interpretation: Hyperaerated lungs mean that lung area is less dense than normal. This may be indicative of COPD if
it includes a flattened diaphragm. This is because with COPD the airways collapse thus trapping air behind them causing the lungs then to dilate, become hyperinflated.

Practice deep breathing exercise and coughing exercises. Resume previous activities. Prevent extraneous work. Have a regular physical exercise like brisk walking for 30 minutes daily Follow faithfully the regimen for tuberculosis, especially the medications. Have a regular sputum test, as ordered by the doctor You should practice hand washing regularly. Always cover the mouth and the nose when exposed to person who coughs or sneezes. You should not spit anywhere, instead spit in a single container to prevent transfer of M. Tuberculosis. Always have a regular check up at your nearest health center, at least once a week to monitor the progress of the treatment. The client should report immediately to the physician if there is difficulty of breathing, there is

y y

productive cough more than 5 days and there is chest pain and experiencing fatigue The diet should be high caloric. Always drink a lot of water. Also eat fruits and vegetables. Don t escape meals. If there are any food supplements available, consult it with the doctor. Eat vitamin c rich food to strengthen immune systems. Always pray for the guidance of the Lord. Spiritual health affects the wellness of an individual greatly. Strengthen relationship with Lord by showing love and respect to the people around you.

Recommendation The patient should stop smoking and drinking alcohol because it will only aggravate his condition.
