In the ihuman cases, the nursing students are subjected to situations where they have to ask questions to the patients to collect information about the different diseases based on the patient’s diagnosis. The patients are simulated and can give feedback on the relevant disease. In week 4, ihuman, we studied the Neurovascular Assessment based on the Athena Washington case (Schreiber, 2016). Debriefing on the case, I was aware of many suitable quizzes to inquire about the signs and symptoms she was experiencing and the various symptoms she had experienced before. I was confident in my knowledge and capabilities when considering her symptoms and undertaking the physical assessment. In this case, I was more advanced in noticing the lung’s signs and symptoms in the best view despite the fact I’m always specializing in the four main anterior and the other four posterior lungs site. I feel the scenario was realistic since Ms.

Washington had the signs and symptoms that a particular patient diagnosed with stroke whom I had taken care of experienced the same. Next time I’m taking care of the patients resembling Ms. Washington, I will consider hearing and adhering to the major complaints and the signs that my patient portrays and use them to understand the feedback I get. The response I received from humans never surprised me. But instead, I was only disappointed in myself.….please click the purchase button below to access the entire solution at $10
