INTRODUCTIONAs a health care provider, it is a duty of a nurse to be actively involved in providing care to patients in a holistic approach. Aside from nurses common duty of assessing the quality and degree of patients condition, nurses also include emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families as well.To fully understand the case of the patient, Ill be discussing what cerebrovascular disease is all about.Cerebrovascular disease is a group of brain dysfunctions related to disease of the blood vessels supplying the brain. Hypertension is the most important cause; it damages the blood vessel lining, endothelium, exposing the underlying collagen where platelets aggregate to initiate a repairing process which is not always complete and perfect. Sustained hypertension permanently changes the architecture of the blood vessels making them narrow, stiff, deformed, uneven and more vulnerable to fluctuations in blood pressure. Cerebrovascular disease primarily affects people who are elderly or have a history of diabetes, smoking, or ischemic heart disease.I have chosen this case because I think patients having Cerebrovascular disease needs full attention as to prevention of complications. It would be our primordial responsibility as student nurses not only on the physical aspect but also on the emotions and feelings of our patient having this condition who may not be able to do the usual activities they used to deal with brought about by the condition.
