My careplan is due Monday the 16 of Feb., and I am havind trouble finding the right diagnoses for my client.
He is a 64 y-o male who presented with dyspnea (Shortness of breath)and leukocytosis.
He has a hx of: COPD, Smoking 1pk/day, Asthma-uses CPAP at night, hypertension, and Type 2 diabetes. He wears dentures. He also has Hx of a abd hernia repair. (unrelated to this visit)
I need three nursing diagnosis and tX plans, but I looked in mu Nursing diagnosis book, and I cannot find a Nurs. Dx of impaired gas exchange (do they not use this?) I see Ineffective Airway Clearance (not being able to cough out excess mucous, but I was kinda hoping for something better than just Can't cough up mucous to get it out.
Pt is also obese w a wt of 249 and ht of 5'10" .
As a second Nursing Dx. I chose imbalanced nutrition: more than body requirements R/t wt . & decreased activity.
I also need a Psychosocial Dx.
Can anyone give me some recomendations?
Thanks in Advance,
