Renal Failure & Dialysis Scenario Discussion

1. The first thing that I would do is reassure them and let them know that everything is going to be ok, then I would explain to them how it works and that there is nothing to worry about. I would then tell them they are free to ask any questions too. I would proceed by informing them that dialysis is a machine used to act as your kidney, that flushes out the toxins and waste from your blood. Then I would inform them of the 5 stages of CKD and inform them when they would be starting the dialysis or give them the option to be considered for a kidney transplant. I would let them know the two main types of dialysis which are hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Then proceed to let them know the side effects from both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis treatments to let them decide how they would want to be treated.

2. The medical assistant should tell Ben how dialysis functions and what it does. Furthermore, a medical assistant can say that dialysis sounds scary, but it is really important because it starts by taking waste and toxins out of the blood. Additionally, our patient should understand that dialysis removes excess potassium from their body. The medical assistant can calm Ben’s anxiety by telling him that this procedure is safe; other people have gone through it, and there’s nothing to worry about. Also, tell your patient that during this process, our staff members are here to assist you. To alleviate anxiety, our patient may be advised to take a deep breath during the procedure.

Prostate Scenario discussion

1. The first thing I would tell Thomas is the possible reasons for frequent urination and inform them how they can control their symptoms from a possible enlarged prostate. Which would be the following Limit beverages in the evening, Limit caffeine and alcohol, Limit decongestants or antihistamines. Go when you first feel the urge. Schedule bathroom visits. Follow a healthy diet. Stay active. Urinate and then urinate again a few moments later. Then I would proceed to inform them that The PSA test is a blood test used primarily to screen for prostate cancer. The test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by both cancerous and noncancerous tissue in the prostate, a small gland that sits below the bladder in males.

2. As the medical assident, I would try to persuade the patient to come in for a check-up. It is really important so that the doctor can examine the patient if they pain around the body. It would also be very beneficial because we could run another test if Thomas has other questions about his health. If Thomas’s final decision is not to come in then, I would continue explaining the PSA test. The definition of PSA is Prostate-specific antigen, which is a protein produced by normal the sites in a cell in which protein synthesis takes place. For this test, a blood sample is sent to a laboratory for analysis. Is this a PSA recommendation? Most organizations recommend that individuals who are considering PSA screening first discuss the risks and benefits with their doctors. I would tell Thomas, if he doesn’t wish to come in I would be happy to schedule an on-the-phone appointment for forward questions.
