this is my very first post on here.. i don't even know if i'm asking on the right place but i'd like some direction. i have a patient with drug overdose for the first time and have to do a care plan for him.
i've chosen the nursing dxs:
1- impaired gas exchange r/t alveoli destruction aeb dyspnea, hypoxia, expiratory wheezing, somnolence, and diaphoresis.
2- ineffective tissue perfusion r/t decreased hemoglobin concentration in blood aeb dysrhythmias secondary to myocardial infarction.
3- deficient fluid volume r/t active fluid loss aeb elevated hematocrit, decreased urine output.
a little background of my patient is that he had an mi.. his mom found him laying on the floor when she got home and rushed to the hospital. he was in the icu for a day and was transferred to med-surg floor. his liver function tests are sky high alt - 2541 and ast 2634 and his cbc is out of whack too with critical wbc and increased neutrophils..
the question is: are my nursing dx good enough? it's the first time i get a drug overdose, so i'm a little lost on this one.. help???
