2. HEMODIALYSIS PROGRESS NOTE LOCATION: Inpatient, Hospital PATIENT: Sandra Amada ATTENDING PHYSICIAN: George Orbitz, MD HEMODIALYSIS PROGRESS
NOTE: The patient is seen and examined during hemodialysis. The patient appears to be hemodynamically stable, not in any form of respiratory distress or compromise. LABORATORY STUDIES: Latest labs were performed 4 weeks ago. Hemogram shows an H&H (hematocrit and hemoglobin) of 8.6/26.2. WBC (white blood count) is 9.9, normochromic/normocytic indices. Platelets are 143. There is left shift of 81.1% neutrophils. Sodium is 139, potassium 4, chloride 98, CO2 (carbon dioxide) is 30.7, BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and creatinine 31/3.4, glucose 121, and calcium 8.2. Today, we will dialyze her for a total of 4 hours using an HP-150 dialyzer via her right-sided Perm-A-Cath. We will use a 2.0 potassium bath, and we will not give her any heparin loading dose during this treatment. PHYSICAL EXAM: At present time, vital signs are stable. Blood pressure is 128/57. Heart rate is 80, and she is tolerating a blood flow rate of 500 ml (milliliter) per minute. Normocephalic and atraumatic. Pale palpebral conjunctivae, anicteric sclerae. No nasal or aural discharge. Moist tongue and buccal mucosa. No pharyngeal hyperemia, congestion, or exudates. Supple neck. No lymphadenopathy. Symmetrical chest. No retractions. Positive rhonchi. No crackles or wheezes. S1 (first heart sound) and S2 (second heart sound) distinct. No S3 (third heart sound) or S4 (fourth heart sound). Regular rate and rhythm. Abdomen: Positive bowel sounds, soft and nontender. No abdominal bruits. Both upper and lower extremities reveal arthritic changes. Pulses are fair. ASSESSMENT/PLAN: 1. End-stage renal disease (on maintenance hemodialysis, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), most likely secondary to the following: A. Hypertension. Continue same antihypertensive regimen as ordered. B. Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Continue oral antidiabetic agents. Continue the same dialysis orders as above. C. Previous chronic use of NSAID (nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug)/COX-2 inhibitors. 2. Anemia due to chronic renal disease. 3. ... (More)
