Module 05 Assignment – Case Study Concept Map And Plan Of Care

Example: Case Study Plan of Care and Concept Map

Case Scenario:

Mrs. J is admitted to the emergency department with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure. She was discharged from the hospital 10 days ago and comes in today stating, “I just had to come to the hospital today because I can’t catch my breath and my legs are swollen.” After further questioning, you learn that Mrs. J is strictly following the fluid and salt restriction ordered during her last hospital admission. Mrs. J reports gaining 1 to 2 pounds every day since her discharge.

·

Prioritized Nursing Dx# 1

· Impaired Gas Exchange r/t fluid overload as evidenced by shortness of breath
