Asthma & Anxiety

This Simulated Patient Encounter maps to Scenario MED 04 – Kimberly Dunning – Asthma Exacerbation & Anxiety – Communication & Oxygen Delivery on the Elsevier Evolve Platform

Kimberly Dunning, a 20-year-old female with a 1-year history of adult onset asthma, presented to the emergency department with shortness of breath despite the use of rescue bronchodilators. She failed to respond to respiratory treatments and was admitted for further care. During this scenario, learners must prioritize and implement nursing care for an anxious patient experiencing mild respiratory distress.

Learning Objectives

– Conduct appropriate assessments
– Recognize abnormal findings, respond, and prioritize needed interventions
