[Solved] Health Needs Assessment

The Assessment is based on a health needs assessment (HNA) for a particular population in a chosen local area. The coursework requires you to identify, examine and analyze the health needs of a particular population in relation to relevant health determinants and current healthcare service provision within a particular area (local authority) and then critique a resultant health needs assessment. Interpret and discuss the health needs and current service provision, using these as the evidence-base for drawing local area priorities and recommendations for intervention service design, planning, development, delivery, monitoring and evaluation in relation to the health needs of the respective population. Whilst you develop your work from existing HNA and public health reports, think of your work as the latest and most updated evidence-based HNA report prepared for (or required by) commissioners in the local area to commission healthcare services for the chosen population. In the Report, you should clearly underline the health needs of the chosen population and through your suggested priorities and recommendations for service provision, show how these should be met. Your priorities and recommendations should take into account that your Report is to be considered as the latest HNA for the chosen population in the chosen local area. Therefore, this should also take into consideration the challenges facing the local authority and how these can be negotiated in order to implement your HNA more effectively in the local area in relation to the chosen population. As such, the Report priorities and recommendations provide the base for a comprehensive discussion on “how to make it happen”. The Report should clearly discuss the epidemiologic context of health problems/s and the health needs of the chosen population including the current service provision and utilization by the population. This should underline and discuss clearly the health inequalities that exist and their determinants in relation to the chosen population. Think of what should be the local priorities for commissioners and other local area stakeholders with interest in the HNA in relation to the chosen population. Thus, the Report’s recommendations should show how the local area priorities can be achieved.

[Solved] Blood Gas Interpretation

Identify normal acid-base balance, primary respiratory disturbances, and primary metabolic disturbances as they may appear on a blood gas report Interpret acid-base balances and classify their severity. https://cehe.instructure.com/courses/132511/files/47238734/download?wrap=1 (copy and paste in the URL search box). Arterial blood gas monitoring provides valuable information about the adequacy of ventilation and/or oxygenation of the blood. It is also a valuable diagnostic tool used to evaluate respiratory or metabolic disorders, quantitate the effectiveness of therapeutic interventions, and monitor the progression or improvement of documented cardiopulmonary disease. This diagnostic tool is only useful if the results are interpreted correctly. Physicians, respiratory therapists, and other health care professionals make decisions about the care of a patient based on arterial blood gas reports; therefore, interpreting blood gases is important to appropriately treat critically ill patients. Use the guide provided below to complete your assignment. 1) When interpreting ABG’s: Look at your pH Is your pH within normal range? 7.35 – 7.45. A normal pH indicates homeostasis If your pH is below 7.35, the blood is acidotic If your pH is above 7.45, the blood is alkalotic This is will be your LAST NAME (Acidosis or Alkalosis?) 2) If your pH is acidotic or alkalotic, then determine the cause. Look at your 2 major organs……which is causing the problem? LUNGS or KIDNEYS Lungs = PaCO2 (respiratory system) Normal = 35 – 45mmHg. If the PaCO2 is less than 35, alkalotic If the PaCO2 is greater than 45, acidotic Kidneys = HCO3 (metabolic system) Normal = 22 – 26 mEq/L If the HCO3- is less than 22, acidosis If the HCO3- is greater than 26, alkalosis This will make up your FIRST NAME (respiratory or metabolic). Which organ matches your last name? Example #1 pH: 7.25 = acidosis PaCO2: 53 = acidosis Interpretation is respiratory acidosis Example #2 pH: 7.49 = alkalosis PaCO2: 30 = alkalosis Interpretation is respiratory alkalosis Example #3 pH: 7.30 = acidosis HCO3: 18 = acidosis Interpretation is metabolic acidosis Example #4 pH: 7.49 HCO3: 29 Interpretation is metabolic alkalosis 3) Look at your opposite organ. Is compensation occurring? Is it doing the opposite of your LAST NAME? Example #1 pH: 7.32 Acidosis PaCO2: 49 Acidosis HCO3: 31 Alkalosis(Basic) Interpretation is compensated respiratory acidosis. HCO3 is alkalotic or “compensating” for a primary respiratory acidotic problem. 4) Is it “partially” or fully compensated? Partially: pH will be OUT OF NORMAL RANGE Fully: pH will be WITHIN NORMAL RANGE Example #1 pH: 7.29 PaCO2: 54 HCO3: 34 Interpretation is partially compensating respiratory acidosis. ACUTE -vs- CHRONIC CONDITION Acute: pH is OUTSIDE normal range Chronic: pH is WITHIN normal range ACUTE ON CHRONIC EPISODE pH is OUTSIDE normal range PaCO2 is elevated HCO3 is elevated A patient experiencing an acute respiratory episode on top of a chronic respiratory condition. Referred to as “exacerbation of COPD” An example is a low pH, high PaCO2, and high HCO3. Prompt Provide the full interpretation (acid-base, ventilation, oxygenation status, anion gap) for each individual arterial blood gas results below. Provide the standard statements for ABG interpretations and provide a detailed explanation for your interpretation of each ABG values. Identify the system that is causing the acid-base disturbance and the one that is doing the compensating(fixing). Quantify the level of hypoxemia, when appropriate. Discuss the anion gap, when appropriate. Again, be sure to explain in sufficient detail how and why you reached the ABG conclusion you did for ‘each’ example. #1 Patient Slater pH 7.39 PaCO2 42 mmHg HCO3- 25 mEq/l BE +1 PaO2 72 mmHg SaO2 94% Interpretation:_______ #2 Patient Fulton pH 7.26 PaCO2 52 mmHg HCO3- 23 mEq/l BE – 4 PaO2 38 mmHg SaO2 76% K+ 4.5 mEq/L Cl- 105 mEq/L Interpretation:_______ #3 Patient Frey pH 6.92 PaCO2 76 mmHg HCO3- 15 mEq/l BE – 17 PaO2 55 mmHg SaO2 80% Na+ 136 mEq/L Cl- 100 mEq/L Interpretation:_______ #4 Patient Blanco pH 7.58 PaCO2 24 mmHg HCO3- 22 mEq/l BE + 8 PaO2 99 mmHg SaO2 99% Na+ 140 mEq/L Cl- 99 mEq/L Interpretation:_______ #5 Patient Lange pH 7.28 PaCO2 39 mmHg HCO3- 18 mEq/l BE – 4 PaO2 66 mmHg SaO2 91% Na+ 139 mEq/L Cl- 104 mEq/L Interpretation:_______ Requirements: Submit your responses, in at least 400 words on a Word document (excluding the prompt, title, cover page, citations/references, quotations). You will have to expand on your description of your understanding of ABG analysis to meet the 400 words. It is suggested you include those areas that are more challenging and also the significance and value of the anion gap. Grammar and spelling count. You must include at least one reference to defend and support your position.
