Chapter 10: Von Willebrand disease

Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder with 1in 20,000 people being affected (Favaloro, 2017). The disease is caused by a lack of the VonWillebrandfactor (VWF), a clotting factor that has multiple to functions: being a carrier for coagulation factor 8 (FVIII) andallowing platelets to clump and aggregate (Hubert, & VanMeter, 2018).The disease three subtypes, one to three with three being most severe. Type one is indicated by VWF levels less than 50IU/dL and type 3 with undetectable VWF levels (Echahdiet al., 2017).Men and women are both equally affected by VWD however women can be faced with additional complications due tomenstruationand childbirth (Govorovet al., 2016).

Purpose

Post-partum hemorrhage (PPH)can be a major complication of childbirth.Studies have shown a significant increase in the incidence of PPH in women with VWD compared to those without the disease (Govorovet al., 2016).The major purpose of the article was to investigate theincidenceof PPH in women with VWD and examinehow PPH incidence correlates to each subtype of VWD. The levels of VWF and FVIII during pregnancy and hemostatic drug treatment before and after delivery are also examined in this study.

The discipline of the literature review

The article discipline can be classified underclinical hematology. The researchers studied the lab results of patients to verify the existence of a deficiency in the Von Willebrand factor. The research explores the ifhematologictreatments help individuals affected with VWD decrease the incidence of PPH, allhematologicissues,further exemplifyingthat this study is under thehematologic discipline.

Gaps and issues

Govorovet al. (2016) noted that collected data from the study were insufficient in makingcomparisonsof different subgroups within the study. To make comparisons getting more people of each VDW subtype would have been beneficial. With a rare disease like VWD, amulti-centerstudy could have provided more information. Obtaining information on maternal blood loss accurately also proved to be an issue in this study due to differences in procedure between the facilities incorporated in the study.

Design and methods

Study participants were recruited from the Coagulation Unit at Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden.Deliveries from 14 different obstetric units were examined.Researchers focused on women who delivered during1995-2012. The inclusion criteria for participants were: a VWD diagnosis (all subtypes), female gender, age 18–50 years, and a history of at least one delivery.All women who met the inclusion criteria were identified and invited to participate.The study design is retrospective and observational.

Sample, size, and setting

34 women and 59 deliveries were included in the study. The age of the women ranged from 19 to 42 years of age. Being that VWD is a rare disorder this sample size is considered to be relatively large(Govorovet al., 2016).

Findings and conclusions

In thegroup with VWD incidence of PPH was higher when compared to the general incidence in healthyindividuals. “The incidence of primary PPH was 44%, severe primary PPH 20% and secondary PPH 12%”,(Govorovet al., 2016). VWD typethree patientshad a higher risk of experiencing severe primary PPH compared to other subtypes. When the diagnosis of VWD was unknown before pregnancy researches found a higher risk of PPH as a result. Not receivinghomeostaticdrugs proved to increase PPH ratesamong women with VWD.Low serum FVIII correlated with higher blood loss during delivery.

Implications for future research

From this researchfurthercan be explored on the efficacy ofdifferent hemostatic drugtreatments in prevention PPH. Also, clinical guidelines for women with VWD during pregnancy can be researched and studied to help decrease the risk of PPH.

Application to advanced nursing practice

In advanced nurse practice patients may present with different hematologic issues and advanced practice nurses should educate themselves on those they may encounter in practice.Understanding the issues in women with VDW face, as well as thehemostatictreatments available tothesewomen is important in providing quality care.This study shows theimportance of identifying women with undiagnosed VWD and getting a thorough medical history of bleeding (personal and familial histories). The study also provides valuable information on how different treatments can curtail the outcomes of PPH and the incidence of PPH in different subtypes of the disease.

Identify screening tests that would be appropriate for this individual based on the criteria presented in this module. Explain what those criteria are. Remember to consider risk factors, age, ethnic background, culture, environment, and current health status. You can use the national health objectives found in Healthy People 2020 as a resource for determining current screening recommendations and risks

For this question please use a 38yr old African American female

2. After reading the discussion section of “Community Education for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention: Risk Factor Change in the Minnesota Heart Health Program,” please respond to the following questions:

  • What interventions are identified?

  • Were the interventions successful? What was the nature of the successful interventions (i.e., was it a health education intervention that worked)?

  • Were the successful interventions cost effective?

  • Were the successful interventions reliable (i.e., could they be reproduced)?

    What changes would you recommend to optimize the success of the outcomes?

comment from post 2

Scientific management originated in the early 1900s. It is the first type of management theory used (GCU 2013). With this theory, productivity increases profit for the organization. Participative decision occured in the 1920s when workers were tired with having no voice. They were dissatisfied with their type and level of work which affected productivity. “Management is focused on task accomplishment…” (Huber 214). Four elements are involved in management. These four elements include planning, organizing, coordinating and controlling. Planning includes long and short term objectives. Organizing collects and configures resources. Coordinating directs and controlling monitors and adjusts. 

The routine use of heparin injects in the hospital and other facilities is a scientific management theory that nurses follow automatically because it is ordered by a doctor. Heparin reduces the risk for blood clots by inhibiting factor X. Almost every hospitalized patient receives sub-q heparin on a regular schedule at the hospital. But not every patient needs heparin. Heparin can cause unnecessary pain and bruising in the patient that does not require heparin shots.  Each patient should be assessed prior to giving heparin. 

Using critical thinking, the patient can be assessed according to the situation. Is the patient bed bound? Does the patient ambulate? If the patient is ambulatory and does not pose a risk for blood clots such as previous ischemic stroke or current smoker, then the patient may not need heparin shots. Does the patient use other DVT prevention methods such as sequential compression devices for their legs? If so, the risk is low and the patient should not automatically receive heparin shots. 

Where I work, we have a Unit Councel that chooses volunteer nurses to sit and participate with a board of administrators in order to make collective choices and decisions about current practices. For example, we lacked an adequate break room on Pediatrics and had to share the break room with Post Partum. This showed a loss of productivity by increasing the amount of time to travel to Post Partum for a break lessening the time spent with patients. This also increased stress in the nursing staff because sometimes we were unable to take breaks because of the travel. Volunteer nurses from my unit brought up this important subject during a unit councel meeting which resulted in Pediatrics now having an adequate break room.

Nursing Assignment

Professional socialization relates to the manner in which we learn the roles and functions of being a nurse once we enter the healthcare system. What are some of the ways this socialization occurs in your place of employment, and do you believe it leads to effective assumption of the nursing role? This socialization occurs in a patriarchal healthcare system that still remains predominantly male physician-based. Discuss the impact, you believe, this has on socialization to the nursing role.                   

Need at least 2 references in APA style.

Also I did attach a source from our book that we use in the class.

Thank you very much.
