 Nursing Interventions are actions that nurses take to promote health, prevent disease, and help patients heal and recover from illness and injury. 

Nursing implications refer to the consequences or effects of nurses' action or lack of action.

For antihypertension management:

Intervention example:

  • Providing  hypertension education to patient/family: definition, blood pressure readings, disease process,  diet and foods that affect high blood pressure
  • Medication instruction; instruct how to space out meds when on multiple hypertensive meds ; checking patients pill bottles during office visit for # pills remaining in medication bottle to eval compliance
  • Instruct how to use automatic blood pressure cuff

While nursing implication examples:

  • Holding hypertensive medication as blood pressure 70/50 and patient complaining of dizziness,  notifies prescribing physician
  • Reviewing lab work for BUN/creatine and potassium level for patient on diuretic med; failure to notify physician of K+= 6.2, patient coded.
  • Use TEACH BACK method to confirm that you have explained things in a manner your patients understand

Thanks very much
