Pathophysiology case study

This is the case study:

 

Laura Gray is an active woman, 82 years of age, who lost consciousness and collapsed at home. Her daughter found her mother on the floor, awake, confused, and slightly short of breath. The daughter called EMS. EMS evaluated Mrs. Gray and determined that she may have had a stroke. They notified the nearest designated comprehensive stroke center that they would be arriving with the patient within 15 minutes. The daughter reports that her mother had had an episode of sudden-onset numbness and tingling in the right limb, with slight confusion and slurred speech, 3 days previously. The episode lasted only 5 minutes and then the symptoms went away.  Additional information provided by the daughter indicates that Mrs. Gray has been treated for hypertension for 10 years but notes that she is often not compliant with her antihypertensive medicine. The patient smoked for the past 40 years, drinks occasionally, and is of normal weight.

Please answer the following questions and submit your assignment via Blackboard by the due date.

1. What risk factors does Mrs. Gray have for a stroke?

2. Describe how a Transient Ischemic Attack is different than an Ischemic Stroke?

3. In the hospital, Mrs. Gray is immediately scheduled for a CT scan of her brain. What is the importance of this action?

4. Based on her history and her recent stroke, what type of dementia is Mrs. Gray at risk of developing?

5. According to the National Stroke Association, Atrial Fibrillation raises a person’s risk for stroke by 500%. Go to the National Stroke Association web site and identify the connection between Atrial Fibrillation and stroke. http://www.stroke.org/understand-stroke/preventing-stroke/afib-stroke-connection

6. View the following youtube video “Stroke” by Necleus Medical Media (Sample Version) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcmrgwNCPwM and identify the primary differences between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.
