Nursing Diagnosis

  1. 0 Hi all,

    I'm new to this and wondered if anyone could help as I have a project due and need another nursing diagnosis. My patient has hypertension (HTN), is on a feeding tube (PEG tube) and has dysphagia (so she only drinks a little bit of Frazier Free water daily). I already used a "Risk for" diagnosis with HTN and now need another diagnosis with dehydration somehow related to or maybe seconary to HTN. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Impaired swallowing?

    Deficient fluid volume?

    Altered nutrition status is the first one that pops up with me.
