This is my first time posting here so my apologies if I have posted in the wrong section.
I need help with a report I have to do for uni and this is my first care plan I am doing so I am extremely confused to say the least
so bare with me because I have quite a few questions
Firstly my patient presented to hospital with left sided chest pain and has never experienced this before. They have been diagnosed with coronary artery disease and stable angina in addition they are a smoker, inactive and obese and have other co-morbidities such as type 2 diabetes, HT and high cholesterol.
There was no myocardial infarction and no surgical procedure needed. So my question is what are the clinical interventions that would be undertaken to treat this patient other than medications. In addition what are some of the diagnostics test that would be conducted such as an ECG etc. I also know about lipid testing but I do not actually know the official name of that type of test and how it is conducted?
And finally what could be possible nursing diagnses so far i have;
decreased cardiac output, more than body requirements and ineffective health management.
and on admission is it correct that the only focused assessments that would have been conducted are a cardiovascular, respiratory and endocrine assessment based on the clients reason for admission or am I missing something.
I know this is alot but I would really appreciate your help. Thank you in advanced !!!!
