Posted
by PACUNURSSE PACUNURSSE (New) New

A client with pneumonia, increase RR, increase HR, normal BP, hasn't eaten in 3 days, on IV fluids, crackles in lungs, retractions. What are the two most important assessments. I know respiratory. I can't decide between cardio and GI for the second one. If I don't get it correct I will fail the semister regardless of my class average of a B. Please help

Cardiac of course... ALWAYS when answering ANY QUESTION or doing hands on pateitn care: ABC, AIRWAY BREATHING, AND CIRCULATION ALWAYS come first!!!

Never forget that.
