Task: Revision Exercise

Duration: 3 Hours

 

Task Description

I need help to revise this task according to the comments by my lecturer. I hired a writer here but unfortunately I cannot get in touch with him to fix the errors in the paper. All the same, I am in need of this submission within 3 hours as little is required.

 

This assignment was based on a case study. Therefore, before tackling this revision task, it is necessary that you re-read the case study. Upon understanding of the case study, read through the written essay (especially the answers provided). This is a short 1500 Word essay thus it should take you long. Lastly, review the comments by the lecturer. Take necessary measures to cut out the unnecessary points and update the written essay with the correct content. You may need to conduct a short research to support your argument based on the case study.

 

I have attached the original instructions which has the case study, 2 medical charts which you will or may base your answers on, the written essay as well as the comments from the lecturer in a separate wod document. 

 

Content for the Word Count should not exceed 1500 Words after revision. Content Only.

 

Do this revision exercise competently.

1a. Risks associated with the use of the prescribed medicines. (400 words)

According to the drug flow chart provided, the patient described with over the counter tablets which include Simvastatin, perindopril and Metoprolol and some like aspirin for general body pains and prevention of blood clot. These medicines applied in the treatment of heart-related diseases like coronary disorders, heart failure, and high blood pressure. There are several risks associated with taking these over the counter prescriptions which include:

Allergic reactions- people body’s responds differently to different types of medicines. An individual may be negatively affected by a particular drug which on the other hand has no any notable side effects to another different sick person. All medications administered have the potential to some side effects, but only approximately two percent of these drugs leads to severe cases of allergic reactions. Whether medicines result in allergies or not, reactions to different drugs range from not severe to life-threatening hence, it crucial to seek the advice of a physician before taking any medicine especially over the counter administered drugs. These allergy reactions caused by a chain of responses within the body immune system since body immune system controls how one’s body defend itself against diseases causing pathogens. If a person is allergic to certain medicines, the body cells for fighting diseases reacts to the medicine as a threat, with white blood cells traveling to cells and releases chemicals triggering immediate allergy responses. These allergic reactions manifest in forms of sore throats, skin rashes, and cold (Kemp, 1997).

Nausea and dizziness- according to many people, feeling of dizziness may not appear like a serious health condition but can in return lead to grave consequences. For older adults with other diseases causing their health to deteriorate, and with unsteady feet conditions, dizziness could result in serious falls that could in return cause broken bones. For those senior patients struggling with other health issues, broken bones and loose joints could lead to demise. Since dizziness remains as a commons side effect of drugs, patients should consult their doctors before deciding to consume any drugs. Another side effect of medications is nausea. Even though most people don’t take nausea and vomiting quite seriously, it can cause the health conditions of individuals to deteriorate especially for old people whose bodies already weakened by other diseases.
