Identify the pathophysiology of chronic venous insufficiency

 

Science

Review the section “Diseases of the Veins” (pp. 585-587) in Chapter 23 of the
Huether and McCance text. Identify the pathophysiology of chronic venous
insufficiency and deep venous thrombosis. Consider the similarities and differences
between these disorders.
Select a patient factor different from the one you selected in this week’s
Discussion: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior. Think about how the
factor you selected might impact the pathophysiology of CVI and DVT. Reflect on how
you would diagnose and prescribe treatment of these disorders for a patient based
on the factor you selected.

Review the “Mind Maps-Dementia, Endocarditis, and Gastro-oesophageal Reflux Disease
(GERD)” media . Use the examples in the media as a guide to construct two mind
maps-one for chronic venous insufficiency and one for venous thrombosis. Consider
the epidemiology and clinical presentation of both chronic venous insufficiency and
deep venous thrombosis.

To complete:

Write a 3-page paper that addresses the following:

Compare the pathophysiology of chronic venous insufficiency and deep venous
thrombosis. Describe how venous thrombosis is different from arterial thrombosis.

Explain how the patient factor you selected might impact the pathophysiology of CVI
and DVT. Describe how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment of these disorders
for a patient based on the factor you selected.

IMPORTANTLY: Construct two mind maps-one for chronic venous insufficiency and one
for deep venous thrombosis. Include the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical
presentation, as well as the diagnosis and treatment you explained in your paper.

REMINDER: The School of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title
page, introduction, summary, and references.
