6, 3, 2, 1, 4, 5 The first step in the history-taking process is to identify the person. Then move on to the child’s chief complaints. This will determine the reason for the child and parents seeking professional health attention. The child’s present illness helps to obtain all the details related to the chief complaints and to plan care accordingly. Past medical history of the child elicits information about previous illnesses or health conditions of which the health care team needs to be aware. The family medical history elicits the role of any genetic diseases and familial tendencies, as well as to assess exposure to communicable diseases. Dietary intake and clinical examination of the nutritional status of a child elicit the adequacy and requirements of the child’s nutritional needs.
In which order does the nurse take the history of the child who presents with a temperature of 102° F (38.8° C)? 1. Child’s past medical history 2. Present illness of the child 3. Chief complaints of the child 4. Child’s family medical history 5. Child’s nutritional assessment 6. Determining the child’s identity

Neuro 8 A 70-year-old woman is evaluated in the emergency department for a 6-week history of back pain that has become increasingly severe over the past 6 days and a 2-day history of progressive bilateral leg weakness. Two years ago, the patient was treated for breast cancer with lumpectomy and local radiation therapy. She has no other pertinent personal or family medical history and takes no medications. On examination, temperature is 37.1 °C (98.8 °F), blood pressure is 140/85 mm Hg, and pulse rate is 88/min. She had moderate spastic paraparesis and bilateral extensor plantar responses = Babinski. A T8 sensory level, impaired bilateral lower extremity proprioception, and moderate gait ataxia are also noted. Results of a complete blood count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate determination, and coagulation studies are all normal. An MRI of the spinal cord reveals an epidural mass causing destruction of the T6 vertebral body with spinal instability and moderately severe compression of the adjacent spinal cord. Which of the following is the most appropriate immediate treatment of this patient’s spinal cord compression? A Decompressive surgery B Intravenous dexamethasone followed by decompressive surgery and chemotherapy C Intravenous dexamethasone followed by decompressive surgery and radiation therapy D Intravenous dexamethasone followed by radiation therapy and chemotherapy
C Epidural spinal cord compression usually requires immediate therapy with intravenous corticosteroids followed by decompressive surgery and radiation therapy. This patient has a typical presentation of epidural spinal cord compression, most likely from recurrence of the patient’s previously treated breast cancer. The best treatment is intravenous dexamethasone followed by decompressive surgery and radiation therapy. The corticosteroid infusion likely reduces the tumor-related mass effect and edema, surgery provides immediate physical decompression of the spinal cord and the opportunity to stabilize the spine (if necessary), and radiotherapy targets the residual macroscopic and microscopic tumor burden. Observational studies support the use of intravenous corticosteroids in all patients with epidural spinal cord compression. Surgery is also warranted because of the concern about spinal instability. Furthermore, a randomized, multicenter, controlled clinical trial of therapy for epidural spinal cord compression, which included patients with metastatic breast cancer, showed that the combination of decompressive surgery and radiotherapy was associated with better ambulatory outcome than either treatment alone. In some scenarios, such as early spinal cord compression by a very radiosensitive tumor (including lymphoma and myeloma), intravenous dexamethasone plus radiotherapy may be appropriate. However, patients with such tumors were not included in the previously mentioned trial. There is no role for chemotherapy in the immediate treatment of epidural spinal cord compression. Chemotherapy may be indicated as part of a comprehensive program to control metastatic disease but will not provide the urgent relief needed for this cancer emergency.
