Renal Disease and Men’s Health Issues
In the following case scenario, and as a health care provider, implementing questionnaires such as the “American Urological Symptom Index” will enable me to understand the relentlessness of symptoms observed and recorded by the patient (Barry et al., 2017). The questionnaire used should reveal a general score of moderate, mild, and severe. The questions to engage Mr E.D. will include asking the patient whether he had failed within the last one month to fully empty his bladder, to what frequency (within the last one month) has Mr. E.D been urinating within two hours intervals. Whether for the past month he has experienced weak urinal flow, in the past month how many times did they wake up at night to urinate, how often has urinary flow started and stopped in the previous month, and to what interval in the past has to stain with urination took place. Other questions include questioning when the chills, fever started, and whether the patient has taken any medication to relieve the colds and fevers. I would also obtain history revolving on trauma to the prostate and urethral regions.
