 At the end of our duty in QMC – Hemodialysis Unit, Level IV nursing students of MSEUF-MAIN will be able to impart acquired knowledge and effective skills towards achieving the patient’s optimum level of functioning through promoting, providing and maintaining, physiologic and psychological stability, and health restoration as to apply the right attitudes of the nursing students in rendering care to the patient experiencing hemodialysis due to health condition of END STAGE RENAL DISEASE secondary to CHRONIC GLUMERULONEPHRITIS, its importance and implication.  readers The aim of this study is to provide understanding to the students as well as the regarding END STAGE RENAL DISEASE secondary to CHRONIC

GLUMERULONEPHRITIS. This study will show the contributing factors, occurrence and complication of the condition which is important in the preventive, promotive and rehabilitative care of the patient.

Establish a trusting relationship to client and family. Perform the assigned task efficiently and dynamically Understand precisely what END STAGE RENAL DISEASE is. To be able to distinguish its clinical manifestations. To illustrate the Anatomy and Physiology of the affected organ or the part of the body To discuss and outline its pathophysiology. Find out how the health status of the client had been affected by the above disorders by:     Determining its predisposing factors Determining the causative agents of the disease Conducting physical examination Analyzing the results of the laboratory examinations done to the client.

Determine the appropriate nursing care and management that should be provided to the client by:    Being familiar with the various treatment done to the client; Understanding the different drugs ordered for the client and determines its therapeutic effects and adverse reactions. Evaluate the effectiveness of the medical treatment and the nursing care plans rendered to the client. To apply right attitude by respect through providing privacy and maintaining client’s confidentiality.

End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), also known as Chronic Kidney Disease Stage V, is a progressive loss of renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are unspecific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experiencing a reduced appetite.

Incidence, race, gender, age, ratio and proportion
Kidney disease is on the rise and is an important cause of death in the Philippines. It is the 9th leading cause of death among Filipinos today. It is said that a Filipino is having the disease hourly or 120 Filipinos per million populations per year. Statistics show that kidney disease among the Filipinos is shooting up every year. Almost 10,000 Filipinos requiring either dialysis for life or a kidney transplant for survival. About 31% of them have the most advanced stage of the disease. Unfortunately though only 73% or about 7, 267 patients received treatment. An estimate of about a quarter of the whole population probably just died without receiving any treatment. According to DOH said that in the past, chronic glomerulonephritis was the most common cause of chronic renal failure. Today, diabetes mellitus and hypertension have taken center stage in increasing the risk of ESRD which together account for almost 60% of dialysis patients.

There are more males acquiring the condition with a ratio of 2:1. Significance of the Study The significance of this study is to enhance and gain knowledge. This particularly afflicts children and young adolescents. This study also aims to educate the people about the disease of the kidneys specifically END STAGE RENAL DISEASE to serve as their eye opener for understanding how important our kidney is and its functions to our daily life activities. This is an opportunity for us not just to learn more about the causes and treatments of this disease but also an opportunity to show our role and contribution as a nursing student. .The prevalence of kidney/renal diseases has been in an increasing trend. The rate of death due to end-stage renal disease has been in the top ten list of the mortality of the Department of Health (DOH). 10% occur in patients above 40 years. once we encounter it again in the future. (5-15 years of age) while a smaller portion. Rational for choosing the case The group decided to choose this case. especially the end-stage renal disease (ERSD) as reported in the Philippine Renal Disease Registry (PRDR). END STAGE RENAL DISEASE secondary to CHRONIC GLUMERULONEPHRITIS for it will be a good study because we are all aware that this is one of the diseases that gives a largest contribution to the morbidity rate here in the Philippines. The information and learning we will gain is advantage for us. This study will serve as guidelines in assessing and providing nursing care. as well as to develop skills and to apply interventions for patient with END STAGE RENAL DISEASE secondary to CHRONIC GLUMERULONEPHRITIS. It may however be acquired at any time in the lifespan.

Nurse-client interactions are thought to be individual perceptions which influence the process of goal attainment. King’s conceptual framework is best described as a holistic view of the complexity in nursing and multiple health care systems. The theory emphasizes the importance of knowledge and information that the nurse and the client both bring to the relationship. role and decision making were selected to represent how individuals and groups in the health care system interact to achieve goals. nurse-client interaction and nursing. transaction. maintenance. “This transaction model developed to represent the process whereby individuals interact to set goals that result in goal attainment” (King. the care of the sick or injured. communication.

King. 1981).

Acute Renal Failure. Hypertension is the second leading cause of ESRD. Clinical Manifestations The symptoms for acute and chronic kidney disease may be different. It usually occurs when chronic kidney disease has worsened to the point at which kidney function is less than 10% of normal. ESRD almost always follows chronic kidney disease Causes The causes of ESRD are numerous. However. Symptoms may include:       poor appetite vomiting bone pain headache insomnia itching       dry skin malaise fatigue with light activity muscle cramps high urine output or no urine output recurrent urinary tract infections . Polycystic Kidney Disease. Obstruction. The following are the most common manifestations of chronic renal failure.Related Literature Overview of the disease End – stage renal disease is irreversible and progressive reduction of functioning renal tissue. Systemic diseases such as Diabetes Mellitus. ESRD can develop insidiously over many years or may result from an episode of renal failure from which the client has not recovered. repeated episodes of Pyelonephritis. It is also called Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and is labeled stage 5. Various injuries and disease process that may result in kidney failure were Chronic Glumerulonephritis. Hypertension. Lupus Erythematous. and Nephrotoxins. It occurs when the remaining kidney mass can no longer maintain the body’s internal environment which results to renal failure. Sickle Cell Disease and Amyloidosis may produce chronic kidney disease. each individual may experience symptoms differently. Diabetes Mellitus is the leading cause and accounts for more than 30% of clients who receive dialysis.

and other electrolytes . phosphorous. The preparation includes learning about dialysis and the types of dialysis therapies. Changes in DIET:     Eat a low-protein diet Get enough calories if you are losing weight Limit fluids Limit salt. angiotensin receptor blocker.     urinary incontinence pale skin bad breath hearing deficit detectable abdominal mass      tissue swelling irritability poor muscle tone change in mental alertness metallic taste in mouth Treatment Dialysis or kidney transplantation is the only treatment for ESRD. Medications usually include an ACE inhibitor. A patient must prepare for dialysis before it is absolutely necessary. and placement of a dialysis access. or other medications for high blood pressure. potassium.

 Imaging tests. Kidney function tests look for the level of waste products.Other treatments may include:    Extra calcium and vitamin D Special medicines called phosphate binders. such as creatinine and urea. The biopsy sample is sent to a lab for testing to help determine what's causing your kidney problems. to help prevent phosphorous levels from becoming too high Treatment for anemia. Other imaging tests may be used in some cases. such as extra iron in the diet. Kidney biopsy is often done with local anesthesia using a long. thin needle that's inserted through your skin and into your kidney. The doctor may use ultrasound to assess your kidneys' structure. . Procedures and Tests  Blood tests. size and degree to which they reflect sound waves (echogenicity). special shots of a medicine called erythropoietin. Analyzing a sample of your urine may reveal abnormalities that point to chronic kidney failure and help identify the cause of chronic kidney disease. and blood transfusions.  Urine tests. in your blood.  Removing a sample of kidney tissue for testing. iron pills. The doctor may recommend a kidney biopsy to remove a sample of kidney tissue.

he decided to have an owned business.In the family genogram of our client. Hypertension is one of the leading causes of ESRD in the Philippines. we found out that the theory of Erikson correlates with the information that we’ve gathered to the patient. Based on our interview with the patient. Psychosocial Theory – According to Erik Erikson According to this theory young adulthood had intimate relationship with another person and a commitment to work and relationship. And they help each other to provide all the needs of the family. however there are diseases that could contribute to his disease. there are no kidney disorders in their family. According to the patient. Both of his parents had a history of stroke and experiencing hypertension. After the patient resigned in his previous work. . he really loves his wife and their 6 kids.

Quezon. When it comes with decision making. Since he was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Disease. the genital stage correlates to the patient’s age because the patient wanted to gain independence and decision making by working and from his age the patient wanted to be a good husband to his wife and father to their children. the patient is the one who make decision for his problem as long as he knows that he can solve it with his own. he has a maintenance medication for hypertension and currently undergoing a hemodialysis twice a week. Unlike when he was not already diagnosed with ESRD. Talipan Pagbilao. there are trees and lots of houses. In the surroundings of their house. .

The patient should adhere to his scheduled hemodialysis to excrete the metabolic waste that the kidneys cannot excrete. strict adherence to his diet and to prevent further complications through collaborative management of the health care team. Prioritized List Nursing Problem DIAGNOSIS Decreased Tissue Perfusion r/t to constricted peripheral blood vessels as manifested by increase blood pressure of 200/130 RANK REASON The group decided to prioritize first the decreased tissue perfusion due to decrease circulating RBCs in the blood therefore decrease oxygen level. Circulation should be prioritized first among the problems.IV – NURSING PROCESS Long Term Objectives The study aims to restore and maintain the patient’s body weight. 1 Fluid Volume Excess r/t decrease Glomerular filtration Rate and sodium retention as manifested by increase BP of 200/130 Risk for systemic infection r/t hemodialysis procedure as manifested by inadeqaute secondary defense 2 3 . Kidney transplantation is needed to attain the patient’s optimum wellness. to prevent further deteriorating his ill condition. The group ranked the Fluid volume excess as number two because it is the presenting problem in our patient. We ranked it as our least priority because in the case of the patient frequent IV cannula will introduce microorganism in the blood circulation that would trigger systemic infection since there is only a risk and problems the first thing that should be managed since this problem can be fatal if left untreated.
