What do you mean by (search activity intolerance)? Exactly what type of information about activity intolerance do you need? I will be glad to help if I can but need to know more about what you are asking.

Hello, am0nah!

The definition of the nursing diagnosis, Activity Intolerance, is "insufficient physiological or psychological energy to endure or complete required or desired daily activities." [Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions & Classification 2005-2006 published by NANDA International, page. 3]

A patient who has activity intolerance would have these characteristics:

  • they would be telling you that they are weak
  • they would tell you that activity make them fell very, very tired
  • their pulse or blood pressure would get abnormally high or irregular with activity
  • an EKG would also show irregular heart rate or change in heart rhythms with any activity
  • shortness of breath with activity
  • the patient would look like they are having discomfort when moving

The causes of this are usually

  • being on bed rest
  • immobility
  • a lifestyle where the patient just doesn't move around much
  • overall weakness
  • an imbalance between oxygen supply and demand
