CASE STUDY You are caring for a 59-year-old African American male who is a non-smoker and a non-drinker. You are caring for a 59-year-old African American male who is a non-smoker and a non-drinker. The individual has a healthy weight for his height. On weekends, he coaches a youth baseball team in his community and enjoys eating hot dogs and nachos with the children after games. He has been monitoring his blood pressure at the community center and noted that the highest reading was 168/92 mm Hg. He is pleased with this number, as the results were “lower than previous readings.” However, his healthcare provider is still concerned. She informed him about the dietary choices he was making and reminded him to limit his sodium intake. She also renewed the individual’s prescription for a thiazide diuretic and added an ACE inhibitor to his treatment regime. Please answer the following prompts in your analysis of the case: Speculate how the individual’s ethnicity contributes to his hypertension. Discuss other determinants of health that contribute to the prevalence of hypertensive disease in this population. Discuss the significance of an elevated systolic pressure, even in the absence of diastolic hypertension, detailing the pathophysiology behind elevation in blood pressure and the ultimate development of hypertension. Identify if this individual is at risk for developing heart failure. If so, what type of heart failure would he be most at risk of developing? Briefly discuss the mechanism of action of the two classes of drugs this individual was prescribed for the management of his hypertension.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"

Universitywritingservices.com has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied

I was shocked by how your writers managed to deliver my paper on time, and I was among the best in our class in that paper. Thank you so much and I will never hesitate to use you
