    Risk for injury related to potential for clot migration
    -could cause a CVA

    Risk for injury r/t bleeding disorder secondary to overuse of anti-clotting medications.

    Fear r/t change in physical status secondary to potential organ failure.

    Risk for fluid volume deficit secondary to possible bleeding complications.

    Those are just a few that I can think of... however I had clinicals from 7-4, and 6-10, so my brain is not at the top of the food chain right now

    Hope those help!
