Wonderful post indeed! I noticed that you mentioned about baseline assessments and considered them as the first and most crucial step in addressing the cardiac health issues of a patient. I also agree with you that a cardiologist is among the most important players when performing baseline assessments for cardiovascular patients. During this time, the healthcare givers should assess the subjective and objective data of the patient, including things such as their past medical history, their physical health and their family history (Kendall, 2018). Lifestyle modifications and treatment goals are made using the results of such assessments. The code of ethics listed in the American Nursing Association guidelines should be followed throughout the process.
