could somebody please help me with this med-surg case study?
In a professional narrative form, write a formal paper describing an analysis of the following situation, and identifying nursing assessment, problems identified, and interventions appropriate. What are your immediate priority (priorities) and your long term priorities for this patient? Include how you would evaluate your nursing care.
25-year-old male fell out of a tree and struck a hot charcoal grill, lacerated his left leg, and his clothes caught fire
Once brought to ED, his burns were estimated to be partial and full thickness over his face, neck, trunk, right upper arm, and left leg. He is alert, and his voice is slightly hoarse His left leg is splinted, and the lacerated wound is cleaned and debrided . IV is started, and indwelling urinary catheter is inserted into bladder. Using the Lund-Browder chart, his total body surface affected is 46%
Assuming he did not receive any fluids prior to arriving at the ED 1 hour after burn, what would you expect for IV fluid infusion over the next twenty four hours? (Be specific in terms of time)
Support your discussion with evidence from the professional nursing periodical literature. Be sure and document your sources appropriately and give correct credit to appropriate sources. Failure to do so will result in a 0 for the paper.

I think you will find the members here to be very helpful. However, I have never seen anyone willing to do someone else's schoolwork for them. I would recommend doing the work and asking for assistance with specifics if you get stuck.
