Summary:

Although about 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysm each year, most of them have no symptoms. Often referred to as a “silent killer,” AAA results in about 15,000 deaths each year. Clinicians in community and acute-care settings should routinely look for evidence of this health problem when assessing older adult patients. To decrease the mortality from ruptured AAAs requires informed consumers who are involved in their own healthcare, as well as knowledgeable healthcare personnel to assess, teach, and guide this target group. 

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to enhance nurses’, radiologic technologists’, and respiratory therapists’ ability to identify characteristic manifestations, signs of impending rupture, and treatment modalities related to an abdominal aortic aneurysm. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe three important clinical manifestations of an AAA
  • Recognize major signs of impending rupture of an AAA
  • Define the process of identification, management, and treatment of an AAA
