Hronic Venous Insufficiency and Deep Vein Thrombosis
1) Review the sections Diseases of the Veins(pp. 585-587) in Chapter m23 of the Huether and McCance text. Identify the pathophysiology of chronic venous insufficiency and deep vein thrombosis. Consider similarities and differences between the disorders.
2) Select a patient factor AGEThink about how this factor might impact the pathophysiology of CVI and DVT. Reflect on how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment of these disorders.
3) Write a 2-3 page paper that addresses the following:
(a) Compare the pathophysiology of chronic venous
insufficiency and deep venous thrombosis.
Describe how venous thrombosis is different
from arterial thrombosis.
(b) Explain how the patient factor AGEmight
impact the pathophysiology of CVI and DVT.
Describe how you would diagnose and prescribe
treatment of these disorders for a patient based
on the factor you selected (age).
(c) Construct two mind mapsone for chronic venous
insufficiency and one for deep venous thrombosis
Include the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and
clinical presentation, as well as the diagnosis
and treatment you explained in your paper.
