 1 Symptoms
Followed Up

 Description: Tina describes the symptoms that have been bothering her.

What brings you in today?


10:45 PM MDT

I’ve been noticing my heart seems to be beating too fast every once in a while lately, and it started to worry me. My mom said I should make an appointment. You don’t want to ignore heart stuff, I guess.

That must be frightening for you. I’m sorry you’re going through that.


10:46 PM MDT

I appreciate you telling me that.

 Model Statement: “I’m sorry to hear you’re experiencing those symptoms; they can be very uncomfortable. I’ll ask you some questions to learn more about your symptoms, and we will try to determine what’s causing you to feel this way.”

 2 Hypertension
Not Followed Up

 Description: Tina has signs of hypertension and a strong family history of the disease, but does not take any action.

Do you have hypertension?


10:51 PM MDT

…I’ve never been diagnosed with blood pressure problems. But I think it can be on the high side sometimes.

Do you monitor your blood pressure at home?


10:51 PM MDT

Only when I’m here at the clinic.

Do you monitor your heart rate at home?


10:51 PM MDT

No, I’ve never done that.

Do you know if your heart has an abnormal rhythm?


10:52 PM MDT

I don’t, honestly. [AUDIO COMING SOON]

 Model Statement: “A family history of hypertension means that you may be at risk for developing it, too, and you’ve had some high blood pressure readings. Keeping your blood pressure low is important to avoid health problems in the future with your heart and other organs.”

 3 Stress
Followed Up

 Description: Tina describes being busy, anxious, and stressed out.

Tell me about your stress levels


12:38 AM MDT

Oh, geez. This whole year has been… I mean, it’s been the most stress I’ve had in my life. Right now our biggest worry is money, since, you know, this whole year we haven’t had Dad’s income. School can be stressful, too. Well, I guess it keeps me busy, but it’s only bad when I have a lot of tests, like mid-terms or finals.

I’m sorry to hear that it’s been a stressful year for you.


12:39 AM MDT

Thanks for understanding.

 Model Statement: “Sounds like you’re working really hard. I’m sorry you’re dealing with so much stress.”

 4 Caffeine
Followed Up

 Description: Tina drinks a high level of caffeine and does not stay hydrated with water.

How many energy drinks do you drink?


12:37 AM MDT

I’ve been having one every morning over the past month or so. A few times I’ve had two.

Caffeinated beverages can speed up your heart rate and blood pressure. They can be very dangerous.


12:37 AM MDT

Thanks for telling me.

 Model Statement: “Drinking high levels of caffeine can make you feel stressed or anxious, and can dehydrate you. Over time, lots of caffeine can make you experience “crashes” during the day, too. Let’s talk about healthy alternatives.”

 5 Exercise
Followed Up

 Description: Tina does not exercise on a regular basis.

Do you exercise?


12:54 AM MDT

I’m pretty exhausted by the end of the day, so I don’t have the energy to do any extra exercise. But I’m on my feet all the time at work so I feel like that’s a little bit of exercise most days at least.

I understand that you’re tired at the end of the day and that is good that you get some exercise at work. However even just walking for 30 minutes a day could drastically improve your health and even extend your life.


12:55 AM MDT

That makes sense.

 Model Statement: “I understand being busy and having very little free time. However, exercise is healthy for you, and can even relieve stress. Even small amounts of exercise, such as taking a short walk, can improve your health.”
