Review this week’s media presentation on hypertension and hyperlipidemia, as well as Chapters 19 and 20 of the Arcangelo and Peterson text.

hypertension and hyperlipidemia

Consider the following case study:

Patient AO has a history of obesity and has recently gained 9 pounds. The patient has been diagnosed with hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Drugs currently prescribed include the following:

· Atenolol 12.5 mg daily

· Doxazosin 8 mg daily

· Hydralazine 10 mg qid

· Sertraline 25 mg daily

· Simvastatin 80 mg daily

To prepare:

  • Review      this week’s media presentation on hypertension and hyperlipidemia, as well      as Chapters 19 and 20 of the Arcangelo and Peterson text.
  • Select      one one the following factors: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or      behavior factors.
  • Reflect      on how the factor you selected might influence the patient’s      pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes.
  • Consider      how changes in the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes might      impact the patient’s recommended drug therapy.
  • Think      about how you might improve the patient’s drug therapy plan based on the      pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic changes. Reflect on whether you would      modify the current drug treatment or provide an alternative treatment      option for the patient.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post an explanation of how the factor you selected might influence the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes in the patient from the case study. Then, describe how changes in the processes might impact the patient’s recommended drug therapy. Finally, explain how you might improve the patient’s drug therapy plan.
