I am a new nursing student who is also new to this forum so pardon me if i make mistakes or don't observe appropriate protocol.
I am trying to formulate a diagnosis for a Patient with a medical diagnosis of GERD.
Symptoms are Heartburn, Dyspepsia, and chest pain.
I came up with Chronic chest pain related to ineffective digestion.
and Imbalanced nutrition less than body requirements related to impaired food digestion.
Is this right?
I was wondering if i could say Imbalanced nutrition related to regurgitation or chest pain related to regurgitaion or reflex.
Interventions: for pain
2. Music theraphy.
4. Guided Imagery.
5. Breathing Exercises.
Can anyone pls help me with better ones if mine are wrong or help me think through it.
Also for the 2nd Diagnosis i thought that letting pt sit up at least 30 mins after a meal would help. Does anyone have more suggetion?
