Abstract

This poster was completed on the topic of aortic stenosis. Emphasis on the poster was placed on the underlying pathophysiology of aortic stenosis and its significant impact on the function of the heart. Diagnostic testing, as well as presence of signs and symptoms, can assist the practitioner in assessing the severity of aortic stenosis in the patient. Treatment options, including medical management and surgical interventions, are reviewed and correlate along with nursing implication for care of the patient with aortic stenosis. Concluding facts regarding aortic stenosis are included as a summation of the poster topic.
