Biggest Barriers & Communication with patient The biggest barrier for this patient seems to be adherence. He is somewhat unwilling to take his medications most likely because it doesn't fully understand the goal of his treatment. I would let the patient know that his medications are going to help him leave much more comfortably and cut down on his hospital visits if he is able to take them regularly. He will be able to enjoy live with fewer symptoms if we can control his chronic conditions. Medications and Disease States Losartan/hypertension Simvastatin/hyperlipidemia Proventil/SOB Ranitidine/GERD Spironolactone/CHF Prednisone/SOB Potassium/CHF Norco/chest pain Appropriateness, Safety, Efficacy and Adherence Adherence is the most important problem that is currently facing this patient as he has not been using his CPAP machine and is not currently taking his medications as directed. I would not want to make any changes to his current regimen until I could see the outcomes associated with proper adherence. Many of his current complaints maybe resolved through proper adherence.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
