chest tubes metaparadigm help

by Studentpn1 Studentpn1 (New) New

Hi everyone,

I am a nursing student and I chose to do a presentation next week on chest tubes. Our instructor is marking us on the metaparadigms (client, environment, health and nurse) related to the topic of choice. Because chest tubes is a topic where I am in need of learning (hence why I chose thus topic!), I am wondering from you nurses who have experience are able to help me out with the metaparadigms! Your help will forever be appreciated.

What do you know so far about chest tubes and how they affect the nurse, patient (I just can't make myself say client or customer), environment, and health? We do ask that you show us what you understand so far because that helps us help you by not going over what you already know and it gives us a starting point. So let us know where you are and what you need clarification of.

I don't even know what a metaparadigm is. So, OP, educate us! Tell us what you need to present and what your initial plan is.

I don't even know what a metaparadigm is.

I'm glad you said this first. I have no idea what a metaparadigm is either (and neither does my MacBook apparently ;)); however, I always like discussions on chest tubes, and hope we can help you.
