In this task, you will provide responses to the Case Study. Ensure that you specifically apply and integrate your answers with the information from the case study; avoid simply describing a disease or a drug.
Naomi is an 82-year-old female who suffered a myocardial infarction approximately 15 years ago, and she now has heart failure. Her blood pressure today is measured at 135/85. She has chronic kidney disease, with a GFR of 50 ml/minute, and she has micro albuminuria. Naomi’s brother died 3 months ago due to lung cancer, and Naomi has recently been diagnosed with depression.
