Did you pick up any ‘red flags’ in the historical data?

What information should always be gathered on an adolescent that you have not previously seen?

………. makes a sports physical unique from other exams?

What are your differential diagnoses?

What further history should be gathered today and why?

Week 3 Discussion: Sick Child Clinical Case Presentation


The purpose of this assignment is for learners to:

Have the opportunity to integrate knowledge and skills learned throughout all core courses in the FNP track and previous clinical courses.

Demonstrate an advancing understanding of the care of women and children.

Demonstrate the ability to analyze previous patients seen in the clinical setting be able to perform an evidenced-based review of their case, diagnosis, and plan, while guiding and taking feedback from peers regarding the case

For Week 3 of the course you will be presenting your own case from clinical. The case should be clear, organized, and meet the following guidelines:

Initial Case Presentation:

Present only the subjective and objective data only on the patient organized as you would organize them in a SOAP (CC, HPI (no OLDCART for HPI); ROS, PE findings, and any lab or diagnostic findings for your patient.

**Do not put the diagnosis or plan in initial post. No Assessment/Plan in the initial post. No citations or references are required for your initial post, you will post references in your summary post.

WEEK 3: The case should be pediatric (a patient age 17 years or younger).

WEEK 3 specific guidelines: The case must not be something overly simple. The list of things that should not be covered include sore throat, URI, UTI (, ear infection, or contact dermatitis (poison ivy). You need to present a case that intrigued you or presents new content in a different light. *One of the above diagnosis can be presented if the findings were unusual and you clear such case with your course faculty prior to posting (at least 2 days before posting). In the pediatric case you must also include in the objective data growth chart percentiles for height, weight, and BMI, and tanner staging. A patient you saw both for initial complaint and follow-up would be ideal, but not required.

Leading the Discussion: Post your subjective, objective, and diagnostic data for your patient by Wednesday at 11:59 PM MT.

Interactive Dialogue: As a student you will also be required to respond to at least two (2) other students initial case presentation. In your responses, you must include the following: Your top three (3) differentials based on the information provided and why (rationale based on presentation findings), the primary diagnosis you are leaning toward, how you would treat that diagnosis.

NR 602 Week 3 PBL Case Study Discussion Assessment of a Child Recent

Child with Fever and Respiratory or Skin Issues

Kayla brings Riley, now 17 months, in for complaint of fever and rash. The fever began “a couple of days ago” and is of normal levels in the morning then gets as high as 103 to 104 degrees in the afternoons. Riley has also had clear rhinorrhea and in the last 24 hours he has developed a red, diffuse rash to the torso and abdomen that does not itch and a dry cough in the last day. Mother reports he is drinking, but not as well as usual. He did have a good wet diaper this morning, but is not really eating much and is not playing.

Medications: Mother is giving OTC Robitussin cough and cold at 1 tsp last night and this morning. Liquid Tylenol ½ a tsp last night and this morning.

She is very concerned about the level of the fever and the fact that after 3 days he is not improving.
Discussion Questions Part One

We will begin by focusing on gathering history in an ill child.

What ‘red flags’ did you note in the historical data?

What data is most important to include in this particular case and which historical data that might be gathered on a well-child exam can be left out of this ill visit?

What are your differential diagnoses?

What parts of the physical exam will you focus on today to rule in or out your differentials?
