The patient I had this week in clinical was a COPD patient. I need to do a care plan. I chose a few diagnoses already.
I feel like I should be included one related to breathing since the patient has COPD, like impaired: breathing pattern/airway clearance/gas exchange, but because he's been in the hospital for weeks on O2, he doesn't have shortness of breath, his pulse ox is normal, etc. So I don't really have supporting data for these.
