Usual Interstitial Pneumonia
and Honeycombing
J.C.'s Physical Manifestations
Cor Pulmonale
Patient Overview
Vital Signs:

HR: 84bpm regular
B/P: 115/67
RR: 24
temp: 36.7*C

Crackles auscultated bilaterally
Bright red hemoptysis mixed with sputum

Best diagnostic method
Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) are critical mediators of extracellular degradation as directed by Tissue Inhibitors of Metalloproteinases (TIMPs). (Muller-Quernheim, 2011)

Oh great! A mass like consolidation in the left lower lung lobe!

Emphysema was also noted in the upper lobes of J.C.'s lungs. The attending physicians suspected that it was a result of J.C.'s prior history of smoking.
"The presence of IPF with secondary pulmonary hypertension negatively affects the patient's prognosis." (Raghu et al., 2011)
The combined impact on J.C.
Rapid desaturation during ambulation.

Constant need for high flow O2 via NC.
"Exercise intolerance and rapid desaturation to 89% SaO2 while performing 6 min. walk test is a strong determinant of poor prognosis." (Nathan, Noble and Tuder, 2007)
Laboratory Values
CO2: 31 mm Hg, HCO3: 23.6 mmol/L, pH: 7.45
pO2: 81 mm Hg
lactic acid: 4.1 mmol/L (0.5-2.2 mmol/L)
platelet count 91K/mm3 (152-348 K/mm3)
D-Dimer 919 nanograms (35-540 nanograms)
bilirubin 1.9 mg/dL (0.1-1.4 mg/dL) & Aspartate Aminotransferase 106 units/L (16-63 units/L) indicate possible liver damage.

Treatment of Infection:
cefepime: 1g/100ml IV Q8H
Vancomycin: 500mg Q8H
cefuroxime: 500mg PO BID
Treatment of Angina:
aspirin 81mg PO daily
Clopidogrel (plavix) 75mg PO daily
Treatment of IPF
image source: http://ragraphic.wordpress.com/category/four-week-tasks/
Albuterol 2.5mg/Ipratropium 0.5mg via INH Q4H
methylprednisolone 40mg/1ml IV Q12H
High flow O2
There is no currently FDA approved medication regimen proven effective at treating IPF. Lung transplantation is the only medical intervention that can increase a patient's lifespan.
