Whats the abc/maslow top priority here?

  1. 0 Trying to determine what the top priority is,,
    ineffective breathing pattern, or ineffective airway clearance?

    I assume that impaired gas exchange would be third whichever one is first.

    ABC's...

    1. AIRWAY
    2. BREATHING
    3. Circulation.

    The nursing diagnoses you listed contain the exact words from the ABC's. So which one is the top priority?

    Abc's you have to have an effective airway clearance before worrying about an effective breathing pattern, does that make sense?

    If you don't have a patent airway...they won't be breathing for long.

    As stated above and from an emergency perspective:

    1. Airway
    2. Airway
    3. Airway

    Nothing else matters without a patent airway. When choosing your nursing dx, start with what's going to kill the patient first and work your way down.
