Chest X-ray (Chest radiography, CXR) is one of the most frequently performed radiological examination. This study guide can help nurses understand their tasks and responsibilities during a chest x-ray.
Here are six (6) nursing care plans (NCP) and nursing diagnosis (NDx) for patients who are under mechanical ventilation:
The trillions of cells in the body require an abundant and continuous supply of oxygen to carry out their vital functions. We cannot “do without oxygen” for even a little while, as we can without food or water.
Pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) is a chronic respiratory disease common among crowded and poorly ventilated areas.
Pneumothorax is one of the disorders of the chest and lower respiratory tract. It occurs when the parietal or visceral pleura is breached and the pleural space is exposed to positive atmospheric pressure.
Lung collapse may occur partially or completely because of air (pneumothorax), blood (hemothorax, or other fluids (pleural effusion) collecting in the pleural space.
