Nursing interventions for edema

Nursing intervention is the fourth stage of the nursing process

Purpose of nursing intervention - do everything necessary to fulfill the planned care plan for the patient is identical to the overall goal of the nursing process.

There are three systems of patient care:

1. Fully-compensating:
it requires three types of patients:
• Patients who can not perform any actions while unconscious;
• Patients who are conscious, who can not or are not allowed to move;
• Patients who are unable to make decisions on their own;

2. Partially compensating:
the distribution of tasks depends on the degree of limitation of motor abilities, as well as on the patient's readiness to absorb and perform certain actions;

3. Advisory (supportive):
the patient can take care of himself and be trained in appropriate actions, but with the help of a nurse (outpatient care).

Dependent nursing interventions - the actions of the nurse, performed as prescribed by the doctor, but requiring the knowledge and skills of the average medical staff (collection of biological fluids);

Independent nursing intervention - the activities of the nurse, carried out to the best of her competence; the nurse is guided by his own considerations (feeding the duck into bed);

Interdependent nursing interventions - joint activities of the nurse with other specialists.
