Ty Evans is a 73-year-old married male living with his spouse. You are making your first home care visit with Mr. Evans since his regular nurse is on vacation. He weighs 185 lbs and is 6 ft. 3 in. He has lost 10 pounds in the past 6 weeks. He had a central venous port implanted for previous chemotherapy administration for colon cancer, but the port is not currently being used. His apical heart rate is now 110 BPM, irregular and thready, with BP 110/60._x000D_

His respirations are 25/minute, which he says is his usual respiratory pattern.

Focus Question:_x000D_

1. What questions do you have?

_x000D_
You learn that Mr. Evans’ last ECG two weeks ago noted “Atrial fibrillation with controlled ventricular response.” He has not had a digoxin level drawn for two months. He states that he was in the hospital a year ago for congestion in his heart. His respirations are recorded as being 20-27/minute and that he frequently has sonorous wheezes on expiration in the right bronchovesicular area with crackles in the right middle lobe, which you confirm through auscultation during your assessment. The home health aid has left a note from the day before for the nurse: “Patient is flushed, has loose stools, and says he’s nauseated.”_x000D_
