Question 3. (300 words) (Learning outcome 3)

To manage a severe acute exacerbation of asthma in a child continuous nebulised salbutamol is given. Three doses of ipratropium is added to the nebuliser at 20 minute intervals.

a) Discuss the mode of action of each of these drugs (salbutamol and ipratropium) relating to the underlying pathogenesis.
b) Relating your answer to the pharmacology of the two drugs, discuss nursing implications including how you will monitor and respond to adverse effects and how you will evaluate the therapeutic effect.

When answering questions:
• Responses are to use full sentences, paragraphs, correct spelling and grammar.
• All sources to be referenced using APA style.

GUIDED QUESTION 1
Demonstrates comprehensive and detailed knowledge of the pathogenesis of an acute exacerbation of asthma that leads to a widespread expiratory wheeze and dyspnoea. /20 Analyses information from a discerning selection of sources and provides an accurate and clear explanation of the pathogenesis of an acute exacerbation of asthma that leads to a widespread expiratory wheeze and dyspnoea. Synthesises the information effectively and in own words. Analyses information from a discerning selection of sources and accurately explains the pathogenesis that leads to a widespread expiratory wheeze and dyspnoea in an acute exacerbation of asthma. Mostly synthesises the information effectively and in own words. Analyses information from relevant sources and generally provides an accurate explanation of an acute exacerbation of asthma that leads to a widespread expiratory wheeze and dyspnoea. However, some information is incomplete and relationship of pathogenesis to expiratory wheeze and dyspnoea may lack clarity. Using information from relevant references provides a basic description of the pathogenesis of an acute exacerbation of asthma with some links to expiratory wheeze and dyspnoea. There may be minor inaccuracies, omissions or repetition of information, lack of clarity or logical flow of the process. Using one or two references gives a superficial description of the pathogenesis of an acute exacerbation of asthma with a number of significant inaccuracies, repetition or lack of clarity. Has not accurately related the expiratory wheeze or dyspnoea accurately to the pathogenesis. (4-7)
