After 6 hours ofnursinginterventions, theclient will have noelevation in bloodpressure abovenormal limits andwill maintain bloodpressure withinacceptable limits. Long term goal After 5 days ofnursinginterventions, theclient will maintainadequate cardiacoutput and cardiacindex. 1. Monitor BP every1-2 hours, or every5 minutes duringactive titration ofvasoactive drugs. 2. Monitor ECG fordysrrhythmias,conduction defectsand for heart rate. 3. Suggest frequentposition changes. 4. Encourage patientto decrease intake ofcaffeine, cola andchocolates. . Observe skincolour, temperature,capillary refill timeand diaphoresis. 6. Monitor forsudden onset ofchest pain. 7. Monitor ECG forchanges in rate,rhythm,dysrhythmias andconduction defects. 8. Observeextremities forswelling, erythema,tenderness and pain. Observe for1. To monitorbaseline data. 2. Caffeine is acardiac stimulantand may adverselyaffect cardiacfunction. 3. These drugs haverapid action andmay decrease theblood pressure toorapidly, resulting incomplications. 4. May indicatecyanide toxicityfrom increasingintracranialpressure. 5.
Input and Outputwill give anindication of fluidbalance orimbalance, thusallowing forchanges intreatment regimenwhen required. 6. May indicatedissecting aorticaneurysm. 7. Decreasedperfusion may resultin dysrhythmiascaused by decreasein oxygen. 8. Bed rest promotesvenous statis whichcan increase the riskof thromboembolus Short term goal After 8 hours ofnursinginterventions, bloodpressure maintainedwithin setparameters for theclient. Goal was met. Long term goal After 6 days ofnursinginterventions, theclient had anadequate tissueperfusion to hisbody systems. Goal was met.
