NURS-6512 Week 6: Assessment of the Abdomen and Gastrointestinal System Papers On your way home from dinner, you start experiencing sharp pains in your abdomen. You ate seafood—could you have food poisoning? What else might be causing your pain? Appendicitis? Should you head to the emergency room, or should you wait and see how you feel in the morning? NURS-6512 Week 6: Assessment of the Abdomen and Gastrointestinal System Papers Numerous ailments can affect the GI system and the abdomen. Because the organs are so close, it can be difficult to conduct an accurate assessment. Also, pain in another area of the body can affect the GI system. For example, patients with chronic migraines often report nausea. This week, you will explore how to assess the abdomen and gastrointestinal system. Learning Objectives Students will: Evaluate abnormal abdomen and gastrointestinal findings Apply concepts, theories, and principles relating to health assessment techniques and diagnoses for the abdomen and gastrointestinal system Identify concepts, theories, and principles related to advanced health assessment Learning Resources – NURS-6512 Week 6: Assessment of the Abdomen and Gastrointestinal System Papers Required Readings (click to expand/reduce) Ball, J.

She was diagnosed with diverticulitis; however, as a precaution, the doctor ordered a CT scan. The CT scan revealed a growth on the pancreas, which turned out to be pancreatic cancer—the real cause of the cramping. Because of a high potential for misdiagnosis, determining the precise cause of abdominal pain can be time consuming and challenging. By analyzing case studies of abnormal abdominal findings, nurses can prepare themselves to better diagnose conditions in the abdomen. In this Lab Assignment, you will analyze an Episodic note case study that describes abnormal findings in patients seen in a clinical setting. You will consider what history should be collected from the patients as well as which physical exams and diagnostic tests should be conducted. You will also formulate a differential diagnosis with several possible conditions. NURS-6512 Week 6: Assessment of the Abdomen and Gastrointestinal System Papers To Prepare Review the Episodic note case study your instructor provides you for this week’s Assignment. Please see the “Course Announcements” section of the classroom for your Episodic note case study. With regard to the Episodic note case study provided: Review this week’s Learning Resources, and consider the insights they provide about the case study. Consider what history would be necessary to collect from the patient in the case study.

Identify at least five possible conditions that may be considered in a differential diagnosis for the patient. The Assignment Analyze the subjective portion of the note. List additional information that should be included in the documentation. Analyze the objective portion of the note. List additional information that should be included in the documentation.
