    for a long term goal, i would want my pt to demonstrate adequate knowledge about their disease process...
    whether the etiology is r/t cardiac, pulmonary, electrolytes, meds, etc., a pt that is knowledgeable is one who will manage their condition competently.

    along with vs being wnl, you may want to see pink skin, clear chest, no/minimal edema, balanced lytes (and i&o's)...however it relates to your pt, there are other signs that tell us all is well...
    or at least, better.

    good luck, lilly.
