This paper looks a a case study article on asthma and its environmental triggers. The aspects of the article to be discussed are: a brief description, the community described within, the means (or lack thereof) to address the concern, ethical issues of not addressing the concern and how the concern relates to Dorothea Orem's nursing model.
From the Paper:"As part of the Case Studies in Environmental Medicine series and as an answer for the problematic and growing asthma dilemma in the United States, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) put out an article on asthma in 2002. Entitled "Environmental triggers of asthma," this case study/article lists as its purpose to "discuss the role environmental factors play in the etiology, triggering, and exacerbation of asthma" (ATSDR, 2002, p.1). Lamenting the fact that "over the past decade, the prevalence of asthma in both children and adults has increased in the United States" (ATSDR, 2002, p.1), the study promises to discuss such environmental causes of asthma as allergens, pollutants, and workplace-related substance exposures, realizing that by controlling the environment, control over the impact and progress of asthma can also be had."
