FINDINGS: Respondent 2

6 Jun

As for Respondent 2, I have made an assumption saying that she belongs to the Conscientiousness category. Based on the results from the respondent and her friend below, I am now confident to say that my assumption is proven right.

**Note: SDA = Strongly Disagree, DA = Disagree, NAD = Neither Agree nor Disagree, A = Agree, SA = Strongly Agree**
Respondent’s Friend
Your name.
I enjoy sharing my thoughts with others.
I am a talkative person.
 I tend to come up with my own original ideas during a group discussion.
I am emotionally unstable and moody most of the time.
 I am able to remain calm even in a stressful situation.
I have a vivid imagination.
 I tend to do something until it is finished.
I often feel uncomfortable meeting new people.
I tend to get annoyed easily.

In conclusion, I found that her dimension of personality encompasses some of these good qualities such as planning, responsibility, and cautiousness. She is often described as a higher achiever, thorough, and hardworking and she shows her personalities greatly in her Facebook statuses.

Another proof that the respondent has a conscientious personality is based from the way she lists down everything. She literally uses Facebook as a medium to sharing ideas which is utterly commendable.

“What to check n look for during PE? Hmm….

V/sign! Esp BP..
Palpate all peripheral pulses!
Listen to bruit; carotid, liver, renal & femoral
Inspect for any ulcer
Lower limb inspection very important; look at the color of skin, feel for temp, any skin changes: loss of hair, atrophic skin, any ulcer or gangrene, hypertrophied nail..

How to know this is an arterial ulcer?

1. Site – can be anywhere
2. The etiology is always d/t ischaemia so there’s feature of reduced blood flow to the foot – pale looking, shiny skin, loss of hair, cold to touch, prolonged CRT, absent o reduced pulse intensity
3. Edge – punched out
4. Margin – usually regular
5. Depth – usually deep
6. Painful!!
7. It can be dry o wet
8. Unlike venous ulcer; it does not ass with oedema, presence of granulation tissue, o callosity, o bone deformity, o glove & stockin sensory neuropathy, o loss of proprio/vibration, o dilated vein
9. Surrounding skin looks dusky
10. Infection is frequent
11. Buerger’s angle (<20 degree)

Proceed with abdomen to check for 3A”
