3. Nursing Diagnosis

3.1. Fluid and Electrolyte imbalances related to secondary edema

3.1.1. Nursing Interventions 1 Assess fluid status with daily weigh, balance input and output, skin turgor, vital signs. 2 Limit your fluid intake. Rationale: R: fluid restriction can determine ideal body weight, urine output, and response to therapy. 3 Explain to the patient and family about the liquid restrictions. Rationale: Understanding to increase cooperation of patients and families in the fluid restriction. 4 Instruct the patient / teach the patient to record the use of fluid intake and output mainly. Rationale: To determine the balance of inputs and outputs.

3.2. Imbalanced Nutrition less than body requirements related to anorexia, nausea, vomiting.

3.2.1. Nursing Interventions 1 Monitor the consumption of foods / liquids. Rationale: It helps in identifying nutritional deficiencies. 2 Notice of nausea and vomiting. Rationale: It helps to understand fluid and electrolyte changes. 3 Give food a little but often. Rationale: The portion of a smaller can increase food intake. 4 Increase visits by people nearby during meals. Rationale: Provides transfer and improve the social aspects. 5 Rationale: Lowering stomatitis oral discomfort and unwelcome taste in the mouth that can affect food intake.

3.3. Ineffective breathing pattern related to hyperventilation due to acid base imbalance

3.3.1. Nursing Interventions 1 Auscultation of breath sounds, note the presence of crackles. Rationale: To find out the existence of the collection of secretions. 2 Teach patient effective coughing and deep breathing. Rationale: Cleaning the airway and facilitate the flow oxygen 3 Adjust the position as comfortable as possible. Rationale: To prevent breathing difficulty and shortness of breath 4 Limit the movement Rationale: To reduce breathing difficulty and reduce cardiac work load.

3.4. Impaired skin Integrity related to pruritis from increased sodium in the blood

3.4.1. Nursing Interventions 1 Inspection of the skin to change color, turgor, vascular, note the presence of redness. Rationale: It indicates area of ​​poor circulation or damage that may lead to the formation of pressure sores / infections. 2 Monitor fluid intake and hydration of the skin and mucous membranes. Rationale: Detecting the presence of dehydration or over-hydration affecting circulation and tissue integrity. 3 Change positions as often as possible. Rationale: Reduce pressure on edema, poorly perfused tissue to reduce ischemia. 4 Give skin care. Rationale: Reduce drying, skin tears.
