Care Plan Help --getting So Frustrated

  1. Hi, Im a nursing 1 student and am working on my care plan that is like 12 pages long ---crazy i know. well I have come to a part that I need a text book descriprition of COPD - which I got from my med - surg book but, now it says Prognosis and the med -surg book doesn't give a text book def. I asked my instructor and she said Taber's has it so I looked in there cause I have that book ---- spent an hour looking and can't find it . I need to write something but have no Idear other than a COPD pt prognosis is poor. If any of you have any info and can help me out here I would really appreciate it. Thanks
