week 5 discussion
I’m working on a health & medical multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
MP 51 y/o female visits the clinic for menstrual period irregularities. She had a period last month after 6 months without it. Has been feeling hot flashes and mood changes. Menstrual changes are most likely related to menopause. The patient has a history of depression, and she is worried about mood swings. Tx was discussed with the patient to relieve vasomotor symptoms (mood changes) with Escitalopram Oxalate 10 mg once a day. Hormonal studies were ordered. Follow up with PCP in 2 months.
Based on your case study, post the following:
POST A Focused SOAP NOTE only and describe your case study.
Provide a differential diagnosis (dx) with a minimum of 3 possible conditions or diseases.
Define what you believe is the most important diagnosis. Be sure to include the priority in conducting your assessment.
- Explain which diagnostic tests and treatment options you would recommend for your patient and explain your reasoning.
- Also, share with your colleagues your experiences as well as what you learned from these experiences.
