i'm currently completing a first year assignment and wanted to get some feedback about the 2 nursing diagnosis i've chosen to focus on for my assignment. we were supposed to pick the two highest priority problems and expand from there.
ineffective tissue perfusion: peripheral
ineffective health maintenance
risk for impaired skin integrity
risk for peripheral neurovascular dysfunction
out of those i chose the top two as the highest priorities.
this relates to a (made up) patient who had peripheral arterial disease with symptoms like diminished peripheral pulses, increased cap refill time, oedema, intermittent claudication, etc.
would anyone say i've picked the right two? he's come into the clinic specifically due to the pain that's part of the reason i chose chronic pain and i chose tissue perfusion because that relates to circulation..
any help will be appreciated
