NCP Nursing Care Plans For Aplastic Anemia

NCP Nursing Care Plans For AplasticAnemia. Aplastic, or hypoplastic, anemia is a bone marrowfailure that
is characterized by a decrease in all formed elements of peripheral blood and its bone marrow. If all
elements are suppressed resulting in loss of production of healthy erythrocytes, platelets, and granulocytes
the condition is known as pancytopenia. Onset is often insidious and may become chronic; however, onset
may be rapid and overwhelming when the cause is a myelotoxin. Aplastic and hypoplastic anemia are
potentially fatal, commonly used interchangeably with other terms for bone marrow failure, aplastic anemia
correctly refer to pancytopenia resulting from the decreased functional capacity of a hypoplastic, fatty bone
marrow. These disorders usually produce fatal bleeding or infection, particularly when they're idiopathic.

Causes For Aplastic Anemia

Injury or damage to the stem cells that inhibit red blood cell (RBC) production.

Complications For Aplastic Anemia

Life-threatening hemorrhage from the mucous membranes is the most common complication of aplastic or
hypoplastic anemias because affected patients develop alloimmunization, which can make platelet
transfusions ineffective. Immunosuppression can lead to secondary opportunistic infections.

Nursing Assessment Nursing Care Plans For Anemia

The patient's history may not help to establish disease onset because the symptoms usually develop
insidiously. The patient may report signs and symptoms of anemia (progressive weakness and fatigue,
shortness of breath, and headache) or signs of thrombocytopenia (easy bruising and bleeding, especially
from the mucous membranes [nose, gums, rectum, vagina]).
Inspection may reveal pallor if the patient is anemic, and ecchymosis, petechiae, or retinal bleeding if
thrombocytopenia is present. You may note alterations in the level of consciousness and weakness if
bleeding into the central nervous system has occurred.
Auscultation may reveal bibasilar crackles, tachycardia, and a gallop murmur if severe anemia results
in heart failure.
The patient may also have signs and symptoms of an opportunistic infection (most commonly, a
bacterial infection). Fever, oral and rectal ulcers, and sore throat may indicate the presence of
an infection but without characteristic inflammation due to leukopenia.

Diagnostic tests For Aplastic Anemia

• Complete blood count

• Serum iron; coagulation tests; bone marrow biopsy; hemoglobin electrophoresis;
• transaminase; bilirubin; lactic dehydrogenase; blood urea nitrogen; creatinine;
• hepatitis testing; peripheral smear.
