Pathophysiology Assignment | Homework For You
Part 1: The focus should be on the pathophysiology of how these injuries are going to affect the care in terms of perianaesthesia management. For e.g fractured ribs and lung contusion going to affect respiration and ventilation, the liver laceration might be a problem in terms of haemodynamic stability and bruises in terms of internal bleeding.
The acute abdomen can affect the ventilation of the patient. Facial trauma considerations in terms of airway management. (focus should be on considering the injuries we have to take into considerations altering our care for him during anaesthesia)
Part 2: Prioritize post anaesthesia care unit nurses responsibilities and nursing interventions necessary for Andrei in the immediate postoperative period. Although his procedure is ORIF considering he is a trauma patient with multiple injuries then there will be implications interms of his recovery and the risks and the care required for him in the immediate post operative period that go beyond that bone being operated on. NO introduction and NO conclusion required.
