Key Assessments:

4) A CAD patient is expected to tolerate walking 200 feet four times per day without chest discomfort or shortness of breath. Evidence based practice determines that pain increase oxygenation administration of oxygen will be markedly diminished with balanced oxygen supply and demand. cardiac biomarkers. .Problem #1: Ineffective tissue perfusion related to blood flow interruption. Maintains patency of artery after MI and for transluminal coronary angioplasty. redistributes blood 2) Patient will show decreased anxiety levels due to flow toward the subendocardium and dilates the 2) Administer Nitroglycerin to relieve episodic angina pressure and oxygen deprivation as well as some pain coronary arteries while decreasing myocardial oxygen pain relief demand by peripheral vasodilation to decrease preload and afterload pressures. General Goal: Patient will maintain adequate tissue perfusion to vital organs. Interventions Outcomes Rationale 1) Aspirin Therapy 1) Patient will verbalize increased comfort and less pressure and oxygenation/tissue perfusion will increase 2) Patient will verbalize increased comfort and less cardiac pressure sensation 1) Recommended by the American College of Cardiology and the AHA to inhibit platelet aggregation and vasoconstriction. Interventions Outcomes Rationale 1) Maintain oxygen saturation of 95% and tissue 1) Administer 2-4 L oxygen via nasal cannula and teach 1) Patient will show balanced levels of oxygen perfusion which is threatened by Coronary Artery patient to take several deep breaths when needed to saturation and tissue perfusion shortly after Disease. Helps patient achieve and maintain a vital and productive life while remaining within the limits of the heart’s ability to respond to increases in activity and stress. Problem #2: Pain related to an imbalance between myocardial oxygen supply and demand. 3) Prevent fibrinogen from attaching to activated platelets at the site of thrombus. General Goal:Patient will express markedly diminished or complete relief of pain and tightness in chest within HCP designated time specifications. Most effective when delivered within the first six hours of a coronary event. pulmonary wedge pressure. Predictive Behavior Outcome Objective(s):The patient will have adequate blood flow through the coronary vasculature to maintain heart function within 4 to 6 hours. decreasing risk of thrombosis. 2) Thrombolytic Therapy 3)Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors 3) Blood flow through coronary vasculature will be adequate to maintain heart function 4) Plan a program of cardiac rehabilitation with physical therapy and patient participation 4) Patient will verbalize understanding of physical therapy as important part of cardiac rehab and will willingly participate and adhere to planning and implementation of program Evaluation: Patient will demonstrate functional or baseline ejection fraction. Predictive Behavior Outcome Objective(s): With pain relief measures. patient will describe/show no symptoms of pain or respiratory distress and vital signs will remain stable and within acceptable ranges. apical heart rate and systolic and diastolic blood pressure as well as participation in rehabilitation planning and implementation before discharge. 2) Using fibrinolytics dissolves thrombin in coronary arteries and restores myocardial blood flow. 2) Increases collateral blood flow.

and demonstrate techniques to control anxiety before discharge. Evaluation:Patient states that pain is relieved or below a 4/10 consistently with stable vital signs andspo2 levels before discharge. also it can help the patient identify when she is anxious. 4) Place patient in semi-fowlers position while offering a quiet. etc. 3) Teach client techniques and coping mechanisms to reduce anxiety (music. calm environment to reduce anxiety. 4) Teach patient use of appropriate community resources 4) Patient will identify one support option to participate in upon discharge 4) These resources can help the patient manage and/or reduce anxiety by sharing similar experiences and limitations with others Evaluation: Patient has identified ways to relax when anxiety manifests and has contacted support groups within residential area.). Predictive Behavior Outcome Objective(s):The patient will identify. relaxation breathing. 2) Teach the client to identify signs of anxiety. 3) Patient will demonstrate chosen techniques for self relaxation several times throughout the day 3) Teaching relaxation techniques and coping mechanisms can help manage side effects with selfcare behaviors. 2) Information is empowering and reduces anxiety. Relaxed environment reduces anxiety and ultimately pain. . Problem #3:#: Anxiety related to pain and fear of dying as evidence by patients statements of “I am scared I am going to die” General Goal:Will have vital signs that reflect baseline or decreased sympathetic nervous system 1. muscle relaxation techniques.3) Administer morphine per HCP orders 3) Patient will verbalize pain levels of less than 4/10 within 15 minutes of administration of medication which will alleviate imbalances due to hyperventilation and anxiety regarding painful episode 4) Patient will rest and present a calm demeanor 3) Management of pain in patients with MI increases oxygen supply and decreases myocardial oxygen demand. 4) Often enhances comfort and tissue oxygenation to be in semi-fowlers position. verbalize. Interventions 1) Assess patient’s level of anxiety and physical reactions to anxiety (using the Hamilton scale). Outcomes 1) Patient will discuss topics contributing to anxiety and verbalize understanding of healthy processes to alleviate stress 2) Patient will verbalize s/s leading to onset of anxiety and explain actions which would decrease negative effects of stress/anxiety on patient Rationale 1) Anxiety is a risk factor for major cardiac events in persons with stable coronary artery disease. Morphine relaxes smooth muscle and reduces circulating catecholamines.

When oxygenation and perfusion are impaired. Related health history assessment questions: When did your symptoms first occur? How long do symptoms last? What is the location of your pain? Does it radiate to other areas? Can you describe the pain? Do you feel short of breath? Palpitations? What alleviates/worsens symptoms? MODIFIABLE RISK FACTORS Do you smoke tobacco? How often? How long have you been a smoker? Do you consume alcohol? How often? How much? Does anyone in your household smoke tobacco? Are you exposed to second hand smoke? PHYSICAL ACTIVITY Do you currently participate in physical exercise? What type? How often? How long is each exercise session and how long have you participated in physical exercise? .Pathophysiology of current illness: Arteries that supply the myocardium are diseased and the heart cannot pump blood effectively to adequately perfuse vital organs and peripheral tissues. the patient can have life-threatening clinical manifestations and possible death. CAD includes chronic stable angina and acute coronary syndromes. oxygen. The organs and tissues need oxygen in arterial blood for survival. and nutrients to the myocardial tissue. Ischemia and infarction of the myocardium may result from the blockage of blood.

OTHER FACTORS Do have a history of hypertension? Do you have or have you ever been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus? Do you encounter daily stressors: at work or in your personal life? What type of work do you do? What are your hobbies? .
