A 44-year-old woman is brought to the clinic by her husband who says his wife has had some mental status changes over the past few days

A 44-year-old woman is brought to the clinic by her husband who says his wife has had some mental status changes over the past few days. The patient had been previously diagnosed with hypothyroidism and had been placed on thyroid replacement therapy but had been lost to follow-up due to moving to another city for the husband’s work approximately 4 months ago. The patient states she lost the prescription bottle during the move and didn’t bother to have the prescription filled since she was feeling better. Physical exam revealed non-pitting, boggy edema around her eyes, hands and feet as well as the supraclavicular area. The APRN recognizes this patient had severe myxedema and referred the patient to the hospital for medical management.

Question:

What causes myxedema coma?

recent systematic review which describes and/or evaluates a specific treatment (or a variety
of them).

type of treatment will you review in this systematic review?
2. How was the treatment evaluated? Describe the methods section that contributes or is
helpful in evaluating the treatment of choice (participants, research methods, etc.)
3. What was the conclusion of the systematic review? Did they evaluate other treatments
as well? If so, what was the conclusion?
4. What were the implications of this systematic review? Is it different from what is
available in the literature thus far? In your opinion, how can this be applied to a clinical
setting? Or if it already is, can it be improved? If so, how?
