    It's generic language for any body process that will affect fluid retention. We have to supply the process involved to explain the symptoms.

    One compromised regulatory mechanism I have written into my NANDA diagnosis book for this diagnosis is "arterial hydrostatic pressure exerting greater control than venous oncotic pressure over water movement into interstitial tissues" [AEB peripheral edema].

    Another is renal dysfunction.

    Do what your instructor tells you.

    Consider also Risk for falls, risk for fall related injury, risk for delirium, risk for pressure ulcers (depending on his activity and mobility issues), activity intolerance (cardiovascular/respiratory intolerance to activity), risk for venous thromboembolism.
