Calvin I find the presentation to be of high standard and a really informative one for pneumonia. The objectives of the study have clearly mentioned the need of taking up the concerned topic. They outline that the presentation throws light on the topic pneumonia and imparts knowledge on the definition of pneumonia, the vulnerable population and the associated risk factors, and the key indicators of the disease while a patient is taken up for evaluation. Pneumonia is the inflammatory condition of the lung and primarily affects the air sacs (Driver, 2014). Pneumonia is the cause of health issues of around 7% of population across the globe and the reason for the death of nearly 4 million people (Evertsen et al., 2010). Therefore, there is a need of documenting all the important aspects of this health concern which is appropriately done by the presentation put forward.
The patient whose case study has been discussed is found to be suffering from advanced stages of the disease and the clinical symptoms points out all the complications that a patient suffering from the disease can have. The presentation discusses the different laboratory methods that can be used up for diagnosing the disease. A proper intervention plan and patient education program has been discussed. Adequate interventions are required for a patient for achieving better outcomes. Overall, the presentation was a really good one and made with all significant details in mind.
