Case Study Guidelines: Complete a case analysis on this week’s assigned case and answer the questions at the end of the case study. The case questions will focus you on the issues. Your paper should be a minimum of 2-3 pages with 3 peer reviewed references other than your text. Your responses must be complete, using terminology and concepts presented in the primary textbook as well as supplementary resources. Each section should be written in complete sentences with attention paid to good grammar and spelling. Please double-space, use 12 point font, with one inch margins. Be sure to cite your resources and provide the references using APA format. Remember to reference all work cited or quoted by the text Case Study Jered, a 10-year-old boy who is having an acute asthmatic attack, is brought to the emergency department by his parents. He is observed to be sitting up and struggling to breathe. His breathing is accompanied by use of the accessory muscles, a weak cough, and audible wheezing sounds. His pulse is rapid and weak and both heart and breath sounds are distant on auscultation. His parents relate that his asthma began to worsen after he developed a “cold,” and now he doesn’t even get relief from his “albuterol” inhaler. Questions: Explain the changes in physiologic function underlying this boy’s signs and symptoms. Describe the most probable reason for the progression of this boy’s asthma in terms of the early- and late-phase responses. The boy is treated with a systemic corticosteroid and inhaled anticholinergic and β2-adrenergic agonist and then transferred to the intensive care unit. Explain the action of each of these medications in terms of relieving this boy’s symptoms.
