Hi please help me with this care plan.  My patient is a 9 y/o male vegetative state.  He has congenital tricuspid atresia, shaken baby syndrome, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, chronic respiratory failure, chronic adrenal insufficiency, SVC syndrome, diaphragmatic paralysis, seizure disorder, spastic quadriplegia.  We need to do a patho map down to the cellular level.  I'm having trouble with this because I don't even know where to start for this patient.  I started with the shaken baby syndome and link seizure, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy as a result of this.  I don't know where to put in all the heart disease.  Someone please guide me on the right track please.  I've been stuck for 3 days and kept staring at this.

Can you meet with your instructor for guidance? This sounds like a very complicated patient where not everything will fit neatly into a single patho map. They may want you to have separate patho maps or have you focus on one or two specifics. They would be your best guide to meet their expectations for the assignment.
