M.K. is a 45-year-old female, measuring 5’5” and weighs 225 lbs. M.K. has a history of smoking for about 22 years along with a poor diet. She has a history of Type II diabetes mellitus along with primary hypertension. M.K. has recently been diagnosed with chronic bronchitis. Her current symptoms include chronic cough, more severe in the mornings with sputum, light-headedness, distended neck veins, excessive peripheral edema, and increase urination at night. Her current medications include Lotensin and Lasix for hypertension along with Glucophage for the Type II diabetes mellitus.

1 COMPREHENSIVE CASE STUDY ON COPD, HEART FAILURE, HYPERTENSION AND DIABETES MELLITUS
Comprehensive Case Study on COPD, Heart Failure, Hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus
1 The following is a comprehensive case study on COPD, Heart Failure, Hypertension, and Diabetes Mellitus.
The patient is a 45-year-old, obese female with an extensive smoking history along with a poor diet. In addition, she has Type II DM along with hypertension and was recently diagnosed with chronic bronchitis which is manifested in some of her current symptoms. 3 Current home medications include Lotensin, Lasix, and Glucophage.
Patients with chronic bronchitis are often overweight and have a history of smoking as in this case. 2 Cigarette smoking is the most important risk factor for the development of chronic bronchitis.
Over 90 percent of patients with chronic bronchitis have a smoking history, although only 15 percent of all cigarette smokers are ultimately diagnosed with some form of obstructive airway disease. 4 Chronic bronchitis is a clinical diagnosis characterized by a cough productive of sputum for over three months’
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
