Re: Mrs Mavis Brampton, aged 72
I am referring Mrs Brampton, who was diagnosed with pleurisy, for continuous care and monitoring following her discharge today.
On 10 January 2011, Mrs Brampton was admitted with breathlessness. Treatments such as intravenous injection amoxycillin with supplementary oxygen were provided. On admission, her blood pressure was 170/90mmhg, pulse 92beats per minute, temperature 39 degree Celsius along with BMI 29. She has productive cough, for which pravastin 20 mg and celecoxin 100 mg per day have been initiated. On the following days,low diary duet, nicotine patches and zyben have been introduced. Deep breathing and coughing exercises were started.
Mrs Brampton is a widow. She is an active member of the community and current president of PROBUS in her area. She has been a smoker since the age of 18 and currently, smokes 10 cigarettes per day.
Up on discharge, Mrs Brampton requires monitoring for medication compliance. Assistance with shopping and meals on services along with house keeping council is also necessary. Assessing quit- smoking plan, which includes watching the side effects of zyban such as dry mouth and difficulty in sleeping, immediately stop the medicine ,or else continue for 2 months.kindly continue Nicotine patches till the craving for cigarette has stopped.
If any additional information is required, please do not hesitate to contact me.
