Three weeks later she developed weakness, numbness, and tingling in her feet that progressed up her body. Her physician recognized the seriousness of her condition and transferred her to a tertiary referral center. Within days she became totally paralyzed; she was trached and placed on mechanical ventilation. She spent 1 month in the neuro critical care unit and several months on the floor before being transferred to your facility.

Case 3 T.S. is a 76-year-old widower being seen in your outpatient clinic for a medication refill for his Parkinson’s disease. He is a retired railroad engineer who derives great pleasure from collecting railroad memorabilia and taking daily walks with his dog around his neighborhood. T.S. was diagnosed with moderate (stage lll) Parkinson’s disease 2 years ago. He does not smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol. His PMH includes a femur fx at age 22, a cholecystectomy at age 47, and a transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) at age 72. Medical management of the patient with Parkinson’s is usually directed toward control of symptoms with drug therapy, supportive therapy, physiotherapy, and possibly psychotherapy. Pharmacotherapy can be fairly complex in these patients because there are several types of antiparkinsonian drugs with different mechanisms of action. The physician works with the patient to achieve the most effective regimen and often involves trial-and-error periods.   1. Symptoms vary and are highly individualized. List eight symptoms associated with Parkinson’s and explain the pathophysiology of each of them 2. Why can’t we just give oral dopamine as replacement therapy? What medication do we give instead? 3. Levodopa is always given in combination with carbidopa. Why? 4. Other than the combination Carbi-Levo, what other medication can we give our patient to halt the progression of Parkinson (can be a mono therapy or in combination with Carbi-Levo), provide their mechanism of action as well. (At least three medications) 4. What are the medications that can be given to our patient to counteract the signs and symptoms brought about by Parkinson’s disease. 5. Enumerate nursing interventions to decrease the number or severity of side effects of antiparkinsonian medications?
