Ms.M is a 26years patient admitted to the medical/surgical ward for overnight observation RE: complaint of shortness breath since the last two weeks..... there is no significant medical history. The nurse she is assigned to measured her vital signs ....the findings are: BP 130/70, Pulse 82, RR 21 and non-labored, Temp. 98, O2 sat 98% on 2liters of oxygen, no complaint of pain, and no visible distress observed.
Every 15 mins. Ms. M rings the call bell and reports that she cannot breathe; the nursing assessment
reveals no significant deviation from the vital signs above. What action should we take regarding Ms. M's behavior? And what possible nursing diagnosis can we assign to her?
