Topic: Respiratory Issues Complicated by Economic Disadvantage

Assignment #4 – This assignment will assess your understanding of how respiratory drugs address lung pathophysiology, how you will convey critical information to patients using the concepts of health literacy and communication, and how psychosocial issues affect compliance. Please do not read additional information into the case study.

A mother brings her 8-year-old child to the clinic, stating the child “just isn’t breathing right, doesn’t want to play, just lies on the couch — this happens all the time.”

The appearance of both mother and child is disheveled. The child’s wheezing can be heard across the room. When asked if the child is better at any certain time of the day, the mother responds, “It’s like this all the time and has been for the past year — we saw a doctor last year who diagnosed asthma but we don’t have any money for drugs or to come back to the clinic.”
