    Thanks...I handed it in and got an EXCELLENT grade. I chose the "risk for" because the other 7 dx's weren't as important. But I totally understand what you mean. Makes sense. Thanks for the feedback!

    Sorry?? The tidal volume is the volume of gas the ventilator delivers to the patient with each breath.

    My ND is risk for falls but I was going to use orthostatic hypotension as part of my r/t... I used "dizziness upon rising" instead. I have a hard time sometimes decideing if something is a ND or MD. Thanks for your help.

    She doesnt have a potential for aspiration anymore than we do....she is pretty strong in that area. Safety would be a great one...as well as skin. I guess my question is, do I write the teaching dx as a normal ND?? Or do I word it differently if its geared towards family? I dont have to write this one up...but it still counts (for my knowledge as well)! Thanks so much! Appreciate it.

    I am doing my final CPE for our current rotation and am having trouble with prioritizing my top three ND picks! Not sure why I am having so much trouble, I guess its because this one is being graded unlike the last FIVE! Ugh. Here are my three top ND's.

    1. Ineffective breathing pattern.
    2. Ineffective peripheral tissue perfusion.
    3. Risk for falls.

    That is the order I think they should go...any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    I ended up doing Ineffective self health management.

    Always pinch. The only other thing you have to decide is wether or not they have enough "subq" to either inject at 45 degrees or 90 and what size needle you need to use. There is really nothing else to know! Good Luck!

    Thanks for responding! I know her different ailments...I do not know how to actually start the "teaching dx". I would have to teach her family...maybe about functional incontinence, skin care, nutrition.

    I have to do a teaching ND for a client who has severe dementia. Obviously, I would direct the teaching towards the family. My question is, how do I start this? My last teaching dx started with "Knowledge deficient" but that was with a client that had no barriers. Thanks!!! :heartbeat
