Write a 2 page paper that addresses the following:
Describe the pathophysiological mechanisms of chronic asthma and acute asthma exacerbation. Be sure to explain the changes in the arterial blood gas patterns during an exacerbation.
Choose 2 of the 3 factors -genetics, gender or ethnicity and describe how they might impact the pathophysiology of both disorders. Describe how you would diagnose and prescribe treatment for a patient based on the factors you selected.
Construct two mind maps—one for chronic asthma and one for acute asthma exacerbation. Include the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and clinical presentation, as well as the diagnosis and treatment you explained in this paper.
