5 PATHOPHYSIOLOGY: (include APA reference and in text citations) (Mechanics of disease, risk factors, how to
diagnose, how to treat, prognosis, and include any genetic factors impacting the diagnosis, prognosis or
treatment)
Steven- Johnson Syndorme (SJS) is a severe skin reaction to an infection or certain medication, characterized by cell mediated
cytotoxic reactions against epidermal cells. At times idiopathic, early diagnosis and removal of the causative factor are necessary to
decrease the probability of morbidity and mortality. In terms of pathophysiology, drug metabolites bind to mucocutaneous epithelial
cells. This binding initiates the release of lymphocytes and macrophages, thus resulting in keratinocyte activation and necrosis of the
epidermis. Clinically manifested as bright-pink or red lesions that become blisters and break open, SJS also has involvement with the
mucous membranes of the mouth, eyes, genitals, esophagus, and respiratory tract. Diagnosed by frequent skin cultures and biopsies,
there is no universally accepted treatment plan for SJS. Research on the use of glucocorticoids and intravenous immunoglobin prove
success in some outcomes and detrimental in others. Per Caring for the patient with skin disorders. In Medical- Surgical Nursing:
Preparation for Practice : intravenous fluid replacement must be started to amend dehydration and electrolyte loss, total parenteral
nutrition is necessary to treat protein loss that occurs with skin detachment, and emotional, psychiatric, and supportive care are
amongst the top priorities for management of the disease process.

10 PERTINENT LAB VALUES AND DIAGNOSTIC TEST RESULTS (include pertinent normals as well as
abnormals, include rationale and analysis. List dates with all labs and diagnostic tests):
Pertinent includes labs that are checked when on certain medications, monitored for the disease process, need prior
to and after surgery, and pertinent to hospitalization. Do not forget to include diagnostic tests, such as Ultrasounds,
X-rays, CT, MRI, HIDA, etc. If a lab or test is not in the chart (such as one that is done preop) then include why
you expect it to be done and what results you expect to see.

Lab Dates Trend Analysis


RBC: 2.44 Low Indicates anemia and
10/31/16 verifies dx of leukemia,
RBC decreases with renal
failure, and is expected to
be low with SJS/TENS
BUN: 111 10/ 31/16 High indicates that the kidney
is no longer removing
urea from blood
adequately and is
indicative of impaired
renal function. There is
an expected increase with
SJS/TENS
Creatinine: 4.3 10/31/16 High Indicates poor clearance
of creatinine and suggest
renal impairment
Phosphorus: 5.1 10/31/16 High Kidney disease impairs
excretion. Pt will need a
phosphate binder
Albumin: 1.8 10/31/16 Low Increased excretion of
albumin indicate renal
dysfunction
Hematocrit: 20.7 10/31/16 Low Levels are expected to be
low with leukemia
Hemoglobin: 7.0 10/31/16 Low Levels indicative of
leukemia
Punch biopsy 10/18/16 Postive for SJS/TENS

Chest X-ray 10/18/16 No abnormal findings

+2 CURRENT HEALTHCARE TREATMENTS AND PROCEDURES: (Include all medical, nursing,


multidisciplinary treatments and procedures, such as diet, vitals, activity, scheduled diagnostic tests, consults, accu
checks, etc. Also provide rationale and frequency if applicable.)

Diet NPO, bedside glucose monitoring q6h, constant reviewing of vitals, pastoral care consults, nephrology consult
following lab values, ophthalmology consult to examine exudative eye drainage.
