Hi, I'm a nursing student here in Ga. We have to complete a concept map on a patient.
My patient is a 48 yr old male who was in a vehicle accident who suffered head trauma. My number one diagnosis is ineffective airway clearance rt to ineffective coughing. I need some help on coming up with some measurable goals for him. I dont know if i would set a goal to get him to cough because the doctor couldnt get him to cough due to his paralysis. I'd really appreciate the help.Thanks.
