As a student, what are the care priorities to provide and do for a patient who has had a coronary artery bypass graft surgery 24 hours ago? The patient has an endotracheal tube, a chest tube, orogastric tube, and plenty of IV meds.
This is what I have so far:
This is what I have from the book:
Assess for hyovolemia, hypotension, output from chest tubes.
Monitor fluid and electrolytes, H&H,
provide pain relief
monitor for oxygenation status
assess wounds and incision site and provide care as needed
assess for post-op complications
monitor hemodynamic pressures, cardiac output
anymore suggestions on what i should do first, second, etc would be helpful.
