Case Study (Biochemical Assessment)
James D. is referred to your outpatient clinic following a recent admit for complications related to his DM type 2. James is a 38 YOWM, 5’9” 210# with a L BKA. He has had multiple admissions to the hospital due to PVD, peripheral neuropathy and dehydration. His most recent admission was for treatment of a non-healing ankle wound that began as a blister and has progressed into a stage 3-pressure ulcer. His foot is cyanotic and the admission was for the purpose of debridement. The physician is quite concerned due to the advanced level of complications in such a young patient. She has referred the patient to your clinic for aggressive outpatient intervention and education.
