2000-3000 word clinical pharmacology assignment I will add the assignment sheet.
I write to clarify some common issues raised re the written assignment. In this case study, the symptoms presented indicate that the patient suffers from multiple medical conditions that affect several body systems including urinary, digestive, cardiovascular and central nervous systems.
Please note that there is a typographical error in the ‘Your task’ section of the Written Assignment document. The modified section is as follows:
Based on the case, establish and justify diagnostic hypotheses (a list of potential diagnoses) and the most probable diagnoses. Discuss the pathophysiological basis of the key symptoms and signs presented in the case.
Identify and discuss the key therapeutic principles (therapeutic goals) for the management of each of the conditions identified
Suggest two (2) drugs that can be used to address each of the therapeutic principles/goals. Discuss the mechanisms of action, possible side effects and important precautions of these drugs and potential drug interactions (if any).
It is recommended that you cluster symptoms according to the system they affect (e.g., digestive system – open bowels every third day; passes hard stools sometimes associated with
pain in the lower belly; sharp griping pains in the upper abdomen accompanied by heartburn and nausea; threw up three times; no blood in vomited material) and on that basis construct a list of potential diagnoses (e.g., constipation, peptic ulcer, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, angina pectoris, etc) before naming the most probable ones that affect that system (e.g., peptic ulcer and constipation). You may not be able to come up with the precise diagnoses due to the limited information provided, but it is important that you demonstrate clinical reasoning skills in the establishment of diagnoses and ability to relate the patient’s complaints, symptoms and signs to pathophysiological processes in this process.
