The expectation when asking for help with assignments is that you show your work, not simply post the assignment. Additionally, this is exactly the type of help that your instructor would be able to give during office hours. You've essentially asked us to complete your entire assignment.

I have so far got the following.

Main concerns for this patient

1. Arrhythmia and myocardial infarction:

2: Haemorrhage: monitor patient’s coagulation test results and haemoglobin studies, usually every 4-6 hours post surgery.

3: Neurovascular observations: to assess limb for colour, warmth, CRT, pulse strength, sensation, movement and pain. Peripheral pulses.

4. Observations: Vital signs should be monitored and documented every 15 minutes in the first hour post procedure then every 30 minutes for 2 hours, every hour for 4 hours then 4 hourly observations.

5. Vascular complications: Haematoma or retro-peritoneal bleeding are among the most common complications observed after angioplasty. Haematoma are usually created after removal of the sheath following poorly controlled haemostasis. In-stent restenosis can occur within 48 hours.

6: Incision Site Care: assess patients femoral site, symptoms of oozing, swelling and increasing pain show signs of possible haematoma

7: Pain: the patient will experience acute pain due to tissue trauma from surgery as well as chest pain from the initial presentation.

8. Adverse reactions from contrast media: chemotoxic or anaphylactoid reaction to the media used in the procedure or contrast medium–induced renal failure.

Looks like you've got a pretty good handle on it. What specific help are you looking for?

And regarding forum etiquette:

Rather than expecting people to open your attachments (I generally don't for simple reasons of security), it would be more appropriate to copy/paste/format those sections which are germane to your specific questions.
