Risk for Impaired Gas Exchange - Nursing Diagnosis for Rheumatic Heart Disease

Rheumatic heart disease is a condition in which permanent damage to heart valves is caused by rheumatic fever. The heart valve is damaged by a disease process that generally begins with a strep throat caused by bacteria called Streptococcus, and may eventually cause rheumatic fever.

Symptoms may include:
  • Joint inflammation - including swelling, tenderness, and redness over multiple joints. The joints affected are usually the larger joints in the knees or ankles. The inflammation "moves" from one joint to another over several days.
  • Small nodules or hard, round bumps under the skin.
  • A change in your child's neuromuscular movements (this is usually noted by a change in your child's handwriting and may also include jerky movements).
  • Rash (a pink rash with odd edges that is usually seen on the trunk of the body or arms and legs).
  • Fever.
  • Weight loss.
  • Fatigue.
  • Stomach pains.

Nursing Diagnosis and Interventions for Rheumatic Heart Disease

Risk for Impaired Gas Exchange related to the accumulation of blood in the lungs due to increased atrial filling

Goal: risk for impaired gas does not occur

Expected outcomes:
  • Demonstrating adequate ventilation and oxygenation of the tissue, indicated by blood gas analysis / oximetry in the normal range and free of symptoms of respiratory distress.
  • Participate in a treatment program within the ability / situation.

Intervention and rationale:

1. Auscultation of breath sounds, note: crackles, mengii.
2. Instruct the patient to cough effectively, breathing deeply.
3. Maintain a semi-Fowler position, chock the hand with a pillow if possible
4. Collaboration in the provision of supplemental oxygen as indicated.
5. Collaboration for the examination of blood gas analysis.
6. Collaboration for the administration of diuretics.
7. Collaboration for the administration of bronchodilator drugs.


1. Stating pulmonary congestion / collecting secretions indicate the need for further intervention.
2. Clearing the airway and facilitate the flow of oxygen.
3. Lowering the oxygen consumption / needs and enhance maximum lung expansion.
4. Increasing alveolar oxygen concentration, which can improve / lower tissue hypoxemia.
5. Can be severe hypoxemia during pulmonary edema.
6. Lowers alveolar congestion, improve gas exchange.
7. Increasing the flow of oxygen to dilate small airways and emit a mild diuretic effect to reduce pulmonary congestion.

Acute Pain - NCP Atherosclerosis

Nursing Care Plan for Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis is a slow disease in which your arteries become clogged and hardened. Fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances form plaque, which builds up in arteries.

Signs and Symptoms:

Many times, people with atherosclerosis don't have any symptoms until an artery is 40% clogged with plaque. Symptoms vary depending upon which arteries are affected.

1. Improving circulation / lowering an area that interfere with blood flow.
2. Too dry or moist skin damage and accelerating damage.
3. Dependent edema can cause the shoe is too narrow, increasing the risk of stress and damage to the skin on the feet.
4. Lowering the pressure on the skin, improve circulation.
5. Skin disorders are at risk due to the peripheral circulation, physical immobilization and impaired nutritional status. Increase blood flow, minimizing tissue hypoxia.

Ineffective Tissue Perfusion related to Glomerulonephritis

Glomerulonephritis- Ineffective Tissue Perfusion
Nursing Care Plan for Glomerulonephritis

Nursing Diagnosis: Ineffective Tissue Perfusion related to water retention and hypernatremia

Expected outcomes:
Clients will show marked normal cerebral tissue perfusion with blood pressure within normal limits, decrease water retention, no signs of hypernatremia.

Nursing Interventions Ineffective Tissue Perfusion related to Glomerulonephritis:

1. Monitor and record blood pressure every 1-2 hours a day during the acute phase.
Rational: to detect early symptoms of blood pressure changes and determine interventions.

2. Keep the airway, suction prepare.
Rational: the attack can occur due to lack of oxygen to the brain perfusion.

3. Arrange provision of anti hypertension, monitor client reactions.
Rationale: Anti-Hypertension can be given, because uncontrolled hypertension can lead to kidney damage.

4. Monitor the status of the volume of fluid every 1-2 hours, monitor urine output (N: 1-2 ml / kg / hour).
Rationale: Monitor is necessary for the expansion of the volume of fluid can cause increased blood pressure.

5. Assess neurological status (level of consciousness, reflexes, pupil response) every 8 hours.
