I'm having trouble on the wording tho. Would it be Impaired Gas Exchange r/t ventilation-perfusion imbalance or COPD? Also the aeb, would it be dyspnea and desaturation to 86% or would I say aeb by requirement of O2 to maintain spo2 >90%?
What does NANDA say? Impaired Gas exchange
NANDA-IDefinition (Ackley: Nursing Diagnosis Handbook, 9th Edition) Excess or deficit in oxygenation and/or carbon dioxide elimination at the alveolar-capillary membrane
