I am an honors RN student at a local college. I am doing a paper on brain AVM's. I worked as a CNA doing homecare for a 13 year old boy who had an undiagnosed AVM rupture. So I know what the post-avm duties include. I was wondering if anyone could help me...I need to find out the nursing interventions, and nursing assessments that would be needed to care for a patient with an AVM rupture. I know there are varying degrees of ruptures as well. I think that is why I am having some trouble...also i am having trouble finding information, not about the AVM itself, but about nursing measures taken when caring for a patient with an AVM. A lot of the information I am finding is how to diagnose and treat an AVM....anything would be helpful!
