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.

Risk for Ineffective Tissue Perfusion - NCP Gastritis

Nursing Care Plan for Gastritis

Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach lining. The main acute causes are excessive alcohol consumption or prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also known as NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Sometimes gastritis develops after major surgery, traumatic injury, burns, or severe infections.

In some cases, the stomach lining may be "eaten away," leading to sores (peptic ulcers) in the stomach or first part of the small intestine. Gastritis can occur suddenly (acute gastritis) or gradually (chronic gastritis). In most cases, gastritis does not permanently damage the stomach lining.

Risk Factors:
  • Infection with H. pylori
  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)
  • Any condition that requires relief from chronic pain using NSAIDS, such as chronic low back pain, fibromyalgia, or arthritis
  • Alcoholism
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Older age
  • Herpes simplex virus or cytomegalovirus
  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Heartburn
  • Abdominal pain
  • Hiccups
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting, possibly of blood or material that looks like coffee grounds
  • Dark stools

Risk for ineffective Tissue Perfusion - Nursing Care Plan Gastritis

Nursing Diagnosis: Risk for Ineffective Tissue Perfusion related to Hypovolemia

Nursing Intervention:

1. Investigate changes in level of consciousness, complaining of dizziness / headaches.
Rationale: The change may indicate inadequate cerebral perfusion as a result of artery blood pressure.

2. Investigate complaints of chest pain
Rationale: May indicate cardiac ischemia in relation to decreased perfusion.

3. Assess skin to cold, pale, sweating, slow capillary refill and peripheral pulses are weak.
Rational: Sympathetic Vasoconstriction is a response to the decline in circulating volume and / or can occur as a side effect of vasopressin administration.

4. Record the output of urine specific gravity and
Rationale: Decreased systemic perfusion can lead to ischemia / renal failure manifested by decreased urine output.

5. Record report abdominal pain, particularly sudden, severe pain or pain spreading to the shoulders.
Rationale: Pain caused by gastric ulcers are often lost after acute hemorrhage due to buffer the effects of the blood. Severe pain persists or suddenly can show respect to ischemia vasokinstriksi therapy.

6. Observation for pale skin, redness, massage with oil. Change positions frequently
Rational: disturbances in the peripheral circulation increases the risk of skin damage.

7. Provide supplemental oxygen as indicated
Rational: treat hypoxemia and lactic acidosis during acute hemorrhage.

8. Give IV fluids as indicated
Rational: to maintain circulating volume and perfusion.

Imbalanced Nutrition Less Than Body Requirements - Diabetes Mellitus

Nursing Care Plan Diabetes Mellitus Imbalanced Nutrition Less Than Body Requirements

Nursing Diagnosis for Diabetes Mellitus: Imbalanced Nutrition Less Than Body Requirements related to an increased metabolism of proteins, fats.

Goal: patient's nutritional needs can be met.

4. Give liquid foods that contain nutrients and electrolytes. Furthermore, providing a more solid foods.
Oral feeding is better given to the client's conscious and gastrointestinal function well.

5. Identify the preferred food.

Increase the sense of involvement, providing information to families to understand the nutritional needs of the client.

7. Observation sign of hypoglycemia (altered levels of consciousness, or cold clammy skin, rapid pulse, hunger, sensitive stimuli, anxiety, headache, dizziness).
On carbohydrate metabolism (blood sugar will be reduced and while still given insulin, the hypoglycemic events occurred without showing changes in level of consciousness.


8. Make checks blood sugar with a finger stick.
Analysis on a bed of blood sugar monitoring is more accurate than the sugar in the urine.

9. Monitor laboratory tests (blood glucose, acetone, pH, HCO3)
Blood sugar decreases slowly with the use of fluid and insulin therapy can be controlled so that glucose enter the cells and be used for a source of calories. Currently, acetone levels decreased and acidosis can be corrected.

10. Give regular insulin treatment with iv
Regular insulin has a rapid onset and quickly too helps move glucose into the cells. Giving through IV because of absorption from the subcutaneous tissue is very slow.

11. Give glucose solution (destroksa, half normal saline).
Glucose solution was added after insulin and blood sugar liquids carrying about 250 mg / dl. With nearly normal carbohydrate metabolism, care be taken to avoid hypoglycemia.

12. Consultation with a dietician.
Useful in calculating and adjusting the diet to meet nutritional needs.
