Help, Help, Help.
I just started my LVN-RN transition program a few weeks ago. I have been in school for 11 years, and I never actually did care plans
in my real world experiences of being an LVN.
I am doing a "Concept Map." Heres the scenario.
A 60 y.o. female with a hx of ASHD and HTN. Borught to the ED by ambulance. She is c/o nausea, anorexia, blurred vision. She is alert and orientated; although her daughter states that she has had periods of confusion over the last several days. The client explains that she is currently under her MD's care for episodes of atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter that began about 1 week ago. Home meds include: Digoxin 0.125 mg daily, as well as Quinidine Sulfarte and Catapress. The cardiac monitor reveals atrila fibrillation with a ventricular rate of 180 bpm.
I need 3 nursing dx with R/T and AEB.
I have come up with Decreased Cardiac output, r/t altered rate and rhythm, AEB atrial dysrythmia and ventricular rate of 180 bpm.
Is this written correctly, and what else can I use.
Please help, and thanks in advance
