Blood is the river of life that surges within us, transporting nearly everything that must be carried from one place to another.

Patients with hematopoietic disorders have problems related to their blood. Some problems are caused by too many cells, others by too few or defective cells. In this case, the students will study the nature of hemophilia, the factors that predispose it, and its relation to the lifestyle of their patient. Haemophilia A is an X-linked recessive disorder that primarily affects males. Although it is a hereditary disorder, there is no family history of this disorder in approximately 30% of newly diagnosed cases, suggesting that it has risen as a new mutation in the factor VIII gene.

The percentage of normal factor VIII activity in the circulation depends on the genetic defect and determines the severity of haemophilia (Porth 2004). According to National Institute of Health (NIH), haemophilia is occurring at about 1 in 5,000–10,000 male births. About 18,000 people in the U. S. have hemophilia. Each year, about 400 babies are born with the disorder. In Philippines there are about 1,000 people registered with hemophilia, but in a country 96 million there should be thousands more identified. The subject of this case has been diagnosed with hemophilia and was confined at San Pedro Hospital last September 15, 2011.

Our group had chosen Patient X as a subject of this case study. He is a 12 year old male who recently had hemophilia. We had chosen him for the reason that he’s suffering from concrete and obvious manifestation of hemophilia, it would obligate us to dig deeper onto the course of the disorder and therefore it would give us a deep understanding of the said condition. Another is that his mother is willing to participate completely and is earnestly sharing vital information that is needed for the completion of this study.

In relation to nursing education, it is important for us to know and understand the precipitating and predisposing factors, treatment, and for us to deliver the best quality nursing care to our client. Studying this can give us vital information to the disease itself. The implication of this study towards the nursing practice is to enable us to acquire knowledge and better understanding to execute the appropriate practices that should be done to our patient. It is our responsibility to understand the disease and the appropriate management in order for us to give the correct nursing interventions.

In nursing research, this will enable us to gain important information that will be used in the future studies. As learning individuals, we are very much encouraged to develop our researching capabilities to improve not only our knowledge itself but also to gain experience and skill to deliver appropriate nursing care. The things we learn from our research is important to our roles as health practitioners for it will assist us in efficiently imparting knowledge to our patients and other concerned individuals A.

Patient X was born via normal spontaneous vaginal delivery on cephalic presentation and without any complication.

His birth weight was 3. 51 pounds. He delivered at their home. He was breastfed exclusive for about 1 year and 9 months. After that year his mother used bottle fed her child. They used formula milk which is Bonna for two years and with supplemental of cerelac. During school days, he usually wakes up at 6:30 in the morning and sleeps at 10 pm. But during Saturday and Sunday he wakes up at 8-9 am and sleeps at 10 -11 pm. He usually plays with his siblings, classmates and his peers. According to her mother he had his previous hospitalization during his 5 years old.

Last June 2011 he had administered a factor VIII injury of 2 vials. He has never experienced allergies, chicken pox, and mumps as reported. No accidents or serious injuries had been experienced and he was fully immunized.

Developmental Task Psychosocial Development (Early Adolescence 12- 20 years old) Erik Erikson adapted and expanded Freud’s theory of development to include the entire life span, believing that people continue to develop throughout life. According to Erikson’s theory, personality development goes through a series of eight, hierarchically ordered stages.

Associated with each stage is a psychosocial crisis that the individual either successfully resolves or fails to resolve. Erikson believes that the more success an individual has at each developmental stage, the healthier the personality of the individual. Failure to complete any developmental stage influences the person’s ability to progress to the next level. He described eight stages of development. Erikson’s eight stages reflect both positive and negative aspects of the critical life periods. The resolution of the conflicts at each stage enables the person to function effectively in society.

Patient X was belongs to school age. Central Task: Identity versus role confusion Indicator of Positive Resolution: Coherent sense of self Plans to actualize one’s abilities Indicator of Negative Resolution: Feelings of confusion, indecisiveness, and possible antisocial behavior Patient X is definitely achieved identity in a sense that he have establish a sense of oneself by expressing his self onto others showing that he can do things with self-esteem and discovering his capabilities as a pupil. He also can identify of what are the task as adolescence.

He actively participated in classroom activities. And he have also established close bond with his childhood friends and some of his opposite sex and siblings. Psychosocial Development (Adolescence) Robert Havighurst believed that learning is basic to life and that people continue to learn throughout life. He described growth and development as occurring during six stages, each associated with six to ten tasks to be learned. Havighurst’s developmental tasks provide a framework that the nurse can use to evaluate a person’s general accomplishments.

However, some nurses find that the broad categories limit its usefulness as a tool in assessing specific accomplishments, particularly those of infancy and childhood. In a multi-cultural society, the definition of success as well, making these task less relevant for some. Patient X is now 12 years old and 5 months which categorized him in adolescence. The tasks in adolescence which he needs to accomplish are as follows: Task | Achieved or not achieved| Justification | 1.

Achieving a new and more mature relations with age-mates of both sexes| Achieved| Upon our interview, we discovered that he is now more mature in his relationship to his friends and peers. He plays with her classmates at school and he had also a circle of friends. | 2. Achieving a masculine or feminine social role| Achieved| At his age he is already knew of what is the task of being a brother. He is now responsible to do all the house hold chores such as to fetch water and cooked a meal. | 3. Accepting one’s physique and using the body effectively | Achieved| | 4.

Achieving emotional independence from parents and other adults | Achieved| Patient X can now solved simple problems arose in his life such as resolved the things he had done wrong to his classmates and solved conflicts between his elder and younger brother without the help of significant others. | 5. Achieving assurance of economic independence| Achieved| Our patient achieved this task. He said that if there is excess money given by his parents he saves it for him to buy things that he wants. | 6. Selecting and preparing for an occupation| Achieved| Patient X said that he wants to be a police man someday.

He also said that his parents motivate him to study well and do well in school in order to achieve his dreams. Definitely he achieved this task. | 7. Preparing for a mirage and family life| Not Achieved| At this age he cannot achieved this task because he is only 12 years old he is more focus on his adolescence stage and as of now his not thinking this things. | 8. Developing intellectual skills and concepts necessary for civic competence| Not Achieved| At this age, this task in not applicable to our client because as of now he cannot do this things. | 9.

Desiring and achieving socially responsible behavior | Not Achieved| This task is not also applicable to his age. | 10. Acquiring a set of values and an ethical system as a guide to behavior | Not Achieved| | Medical Management A.

This is a basic screening test in all patients and is one of the most frequently ordered laboratory procedures. Since, its findings give valuable information about the patient’s diagnosis, prognosis, response to treatment, and recovery.

Urinalysis is an essential procedure for hospital admissions and physical examination. It is one of the most useful indicators of health and disease, and it is especially helpful in the detection of renal or metabolic disorders. It is an aid in diagnosing and following the course of treatment in diseases of the kidney and urinary system and in detecting disorders in other parts of the body such as metabolic or endocrinic abnormalities in which the kidneys function normally.

The aPTT test is used when someone has unexplained bleeding or clotting. Along with the PT test (which evaluates the extrinsic and common pathways of the coagulation cascade), the aPTT is often used as a starting place when investigating the cause of a bleeding or thrombotic (blood clot) episode. Blood typing is used to determine an individual’s blood group and what type of blood or blood components the person can safely receive.
