Nursing Dx - Post PTPA Procedure

Posted

Has 5 years experience.

If a patient came to the hospital for a Percutaneous Transluminal Peripheral Angioplasty, you wouldn't select a Nursing Dx of Impaired Tissue Pefusion because it's been fixed, right or would you?

I can see that Dx at time of check-in for procedure, but if they are staying overnight after procedure then it would change wouldn't it?

What are some good choices of Nursing Dx?
