NURSING diagnosis for a ct with anoxic brain injury

  1. Hello could I please get help with figuring out 3 or 4 nursing diagnosis for a ct with anoxic brain injury. Has a PEG, Trach, foley. Must be ABC for most important to least important and I can use "risk for". Thank you

    nursing diagnosis is based upon the abnormal assessment data you have collected about the patient. an anoxic brain injury is a traumatic event that has produced symptoms, none of which you have mentioned. you need to research anoxic brain injuries and make a listing of this patient's symptoms. from those symptoms nursing diagnoses are then determined. peg, trach, and foley are medical treatments ordered by the physician as a result of the symptoms produced by the brain injury the patient suffered.

    for more help, see https://allnurses.com/general-nursin...ns-286986.html - help with care plans and the appendix of a copy of taber's cyclopedic medical dictionary for a medical disease/condition and nursing diagnosis cross reference.

    what if the pt experiences seizures with movement
    needs frequent suctioning
    the pt was initially on home care but was admitted for decreased O2 Sat on urination, but is no longer the problem because of the foley

    If you read the information on thread Help with Care Plans as suggested above, then what do you think these nursing problems are and that the nursing diagnoses should be? This information "the pt was initially on home care but was admitted for decreased O2 Sat on urination, but is no longer the problem because of the foley" is not significant to the diagnosing.
