Nursing Diagnosis for Patients with Oxygenation Problems

  1. Ineffective airway clearance related to:
    • Tracheobronchial infection, obstruction, secretions
    • Decreased energy and fatigue
    • Trauma
    • Dehydration
  2. Ineffective breathing pattern related to:
    • Neuromuscular/musculoskeletal impairment
    • Pain
    • Decreased energy and fatigue
    • Anxiety
    • Inflammatory process
    • Decreased lung expansion
    • Tracheobronchial obstruction
    • Alteration of normal O2/CO2 ratio
  3. Decreased cardiac output related to:
    • Structural alterations
    • Electrical alterations in rate, rhythm and conduction
    • Mechanical alteration in preload, afterload and inotropic changes in the heart
  4. Impaired gas exchange related to:
    • Altered oxygen supply
    • Alveolar-capillary membrane changes
    • Altered oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.
    • Altered blood flow
  5. Activity intolerance related to:
    • Imbalance between oxygen supply and demand
    • Sedentary lifestyle
  6. Anxiety related to:
    • Ineffective airway clearance
    • Ineffective breathing pattern
  7. Ineffective individual coping related to:
    • Activity intolerance associated with ineffective airway clearance
  8. Fear related to feeling of suffocation associated with ineffective airway clearance.
  9. Powerless related to:
    • Impaired verbal communication associated with endotracheal tube
    • Self care deficit and decreased cardiac output
  10. Sleep pattern disturbance related to:
