Do any nurses out there use an elevated diastolic pressure as a sign of fluid overload? I know that's not your only tool to assess but I was wondering who else might use that as a sign. I had a NP mention that to me when I was notifying her of an elevated b/p and it didn't really dawn on me to use that as an indicator.
Maybe I'm a bit slower than the rest.
So don't rip me too bad here.
