Homework Help: medical terminology

Posted by Marion on Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 1:51pm.

I have to find the errors in a progress report. I am running into some diffculity with the following paragraph: Over the last 10 days the patient has had at least 25 episodes of dyspnea; all relieved by a bronchodilator inhaler. Most recent episode of dyspnea was yesterday and the prescribed inhaler gave no relief for almost 15 minutes before subsiding to another puff of the inhaler. He went to the emergency room yesterday for a nebulizer and parioxysm treatment. This patient is a current smoker and indicates a consumption of 2-3 packs of cigarettes per day and has not discussed the need to stop at this point. On exam today, blood pressure is 158/92. He has tachycardia with a pulse of 152. He is in no acute distress. Crackles heard in lungs with little air exchange in both right and left sides. Small air movement on the right lower love and no movement in the left lower lobe of the lunds can be heard. There is no edems or distention of neck veins.

I hope that you can help me with this.
