Nurse-led advanced cardiovascular assessment: a case study

Kate Dunn Practice nurse, General practice, Pulborough Medical Group, Pulborough, England

This case study shows the complexity of nurse-led physical assessment in general practice and examines the reasoning behind the differential diagnosis of heart failure, pulmonary oedema or pneumonia. It breaks down the process of diagnosing a patient and it explores the factors involved when assessing the evidence presented through the patient’s history, clinical examinations and assessments.
