NANDA diagnosis for a patient at risk for clot formation due to A. FibRegister Today!
- by kkliner Feb 10, '10I have a care plan due on Monday related to a patient who has atrial fibrillation. He was on a heparin drip while in the hospital and it aPTT level kept coming back subtherapeutic, so he needed increased infusion rate as well as boluses of heparin throughout several days. He has a previous history of DVT bilaterally. He is at risk for developing thrombi, but I can't find a NANDA nursing diagnosis for this. Can anyone help me?

- Feb 11, '10 by kklinerThank you everyone for helping me. I was racking my brain about this one for some reason. I think I'll go with the risk for injury r/t subtherapeutic (or ineffective) anticoagulant therapy m/b aPTT levels below therapeutic range. You were all a great help!!!
