ER/PEDIA

PATIENT’S HEALTH PROFILE: A case of Roa Nigel Gil, admitted due to episodes of vomiting with experienced an episode of convulsion, with ongoing IVF of D50.3 Nacl

at right hand, febrile T 38. °C, warm to touch & non dyspneic, asleep. Diagnosis: Status Epilepticus secondary to CNS infection, vomiting & dehydration Nursing Goal Nursing Interventions Independent: • Monitor and record patients vital signs • Explore with the client the various stimuli that may precipitate seizure activity • Turn patient’s head to side/suction airway as indicated. Insert plastic bite block per facility protocol only if jaw relaxed • Maintain strict bed rest if prodromal signs/aura experienced. Explain necessity for these actions. Rationale • To obtain baseline data • Alcohol, drugs & other stimuli (e.g loss of sleep, flashing lights, prolonged television viewing) may increase potential seizure activity • Helps maintain airway & reduce risk of oral trauma but should not be forced or inserted when teeth are clenched. Evaluation After 6-8 hours of effective nursing intervention, the patient’s SO was able to demonstrate behaviors & interventions to reduce risk factors & protect patient from injury, verbalized understanding about factors that may contribute to possibility of trauma & identify measure to take when seizure occurs.

Nursing Diagnosis Problem: Risk trauma related to loss of large or small muscle coordination secondary to status epilepticus. Subjective: “Nikalit lang siyag kurog unya init ky siya kron” as verbalized by the patient’s mother. thirsty Objective: Vital sings: T 38. °C, febrile P 105bpm

Scientific Analysis Status Epilepticus is a convulsive or generalized tonicclonic continuous seizure that last >30 mins, or consist of 2 consecutive seizure without mental clearing in between, A continuous seizure state, status epilepticus can occur in all seizure types and is considered an emergency. A seizure or convulsion is the visible sign of a problem in the electrical system that controls your brain. A single seizure can have many causes,

After 6-8hrs of nurseclient intervention the SO will be able to : • Identify measures to take when seizure activity occurs • Verbalized understanding factors that may contribute to possibility of trauma • Demonstrate interventions to reduce risk factors and protect patient from future seizure events

• Client may feel

restless/need to ambulate or even defecate during aural phase, thereby

• Promote client safety and reduces sense of isolation during event. patients are prone to injuries since they may strike different objects due to uncontrollable muscle spasms. hypoglycemia. Low levels of hemoglobin in the human body may result to seizure.g .
