Mrs. Caroll Williams
Caroll Williams is a 42-year-old Aboriginal woman with a 7-year history of hypertension first diagnosed during her last pregnancy. Her family history is positive for hypertension, with her mother dying at 56 years of age from hypertension-related cardiovascular disease. In addition, both her maternal and paternal grandparents had cardiovascular disease. At a routine GP visit, Caroll reports recent history of headache and general weakness. She also reports that she has taken a number of medications for her hypertension in the past, but stopped taking them because of the side effects. She could not recall the names of the medications.
Currently Caroll is prescribed Diltiazem 30mg/twice daily and Ramipril 5mg/Nocte, which she admits to taking irregularly because “… they bother me, and I forget to renew my prescription.” Despite these medications, Caroll’s blood pressure remains elevated, systolic pressure ranging from 150-155mmHg and diastolic pressure ranging from 110-114 mmHg. Caroll admits that she has found it difficult to exercise, stop smoking, and change her eating habits. Findings from a complete history and physical assessment are unremarkable except for the presence of:
• Moderate obesity (BMI 38.5)
• Minimal retinopathy
• A 25-year history of smoking approximately one pack of cigarettes per day.
Your response needs to be supported by recent evidence-based resources. This could include information from your texts and from other peer reviewed sources. Your plan must be appropriately referenced. APA is the required referencing style for assignments in the School of Health. You must use professional sources as much as possible.
Structure and presentation
