Short Term Goal ◈ Ineffective Airway Clearance r/t secretions in the bronchi Irr
itant (inhalation) ◈ After 4 hours of nursing intervention, airway patency will
be maintained, secretions will be readily expectorated and there will be signs o
f reduction in congestion.
Independent ◈ Vital signs monitored and recorded. ◈ Assisted in semifowler’s pos
ition. ◈ This is for baseline comparison. ◈ Proper positioning helps in draining
secretions. ◈ This will promote proper lung expansion. ◈After 4 hours of nursin
g intervention, the goal is met through maintenance of airway patency and reduct
ion in congestion.

◈ Encouraged deep breathing exercise.
Dependent dyspnea ◈ Administered prescribed medications. ◈ Prescribed meds such
as bronchodilators helps in aiding effective airway clearance. ◈ Nebulization he
lps in liquefying secretions for better and faster expectorating the secretions.
◈ Provided supplemental humidification via use of nebulizer.

Short Term Goal ◈ After 1 hour of nursing intervention, body temperature will be
maintained within the normal range.
Independent ◈ Vital signs monitored and recorded. ◈ Provided tepid sponge bath.

◈ Encouraged deep breathing exercise.
Dependent ◈ Administered prescribed medications. ◈ Prescribed meds such as parac
etamol help in reducing fever by direct action on hypothalamus heatregulating ce
nter with consequent peripheral vasodilation, sweating, and dissipation of heat.
