NAME OF DRUG CLASSIFICA TION INDICATION DOSAGE / PREPARA TION 2 months (single 60mg dose). 3 months1 year, 60 120mg; 1 5 years, 120 250mg; 612 years, 250 500mg; all four- to six-hourly as required, max 4 doses in 24 hrs. MECHANISM OF ACTION ADVERSE REACTION NURSING RESPONSIBILITY

Paracetamo l

Non-narcotic analgesics, antipyretics

Relief of pain and fever

Antipyretic: it inhibits the synthesis of cyclooxygenase (COX), which is responsible for the metabolism of arachidonic acid to prostaglandin. This leads to a reduced amount of prostaglandin thus lowering the hypothalamic set point in the thermoregulatory center. Analgesic: modulates the endogenous cannabinoid system wherein paracetamol is metabolized to AM404 that inhibits the uptake of endogenous cannabinoid/ vanilloid anandamide by neurons. Uptake of it would result in the activation of the pain main receptor (nociceptor) of the body.

Ineffective airway clearance related to retained secretions in the bronchi

After 4 hours of nursing intervention, the patient demonstrate reduction of cough

Establish and maintain rapport to the pt. Provide therapeutic environment such as: Changing of bed linens Proper ventilation Monitor respiration and breath sounds

To get the trust and cooperation

EVALUATION After 4 hours of nursing intervention, the cough of pt. was lessen

To provide comfort

Evaluate clients cough reflex

To know if the pt. is suffering from respiratory distress To determine ability to protect own airway To avoid alleviation of cough To liquefy the secretions. To help in relieving cough.

Instruct the SO to keep the back of the pt. dry at all times Instruct the patient to increase fluid intake Encourage the patient to eat fruits that are rich in Vit. C

ASSESSMENT S-Medyo nahihirapan akong huminga as verbalized by the patient . O>Presence of wheezes. >Ineffectivecough. >V/S taken asfollows: T: 35.7 CR: 103bpm R: 32

NURSING DIAGNOSIS Ineffective airway clearance related to excessive, thickened mucous secretions

PLANNING After 4 hours of nursing interventions the patient will have an effective breathing pattern.

INTERVENTION >Assess respiratory rate, depth. Note use of accessory muscles, pursed lip breathing, Inability to speak. >Elevate head of the bed, assist patient assume position to ease work of breathing. Encourage deep slow or pursed lip breathing as individually tolerated or indicated. >Routinely monitor skin and mucous membrane color.

RATIONALE >Useful in evaluating he degree or respiratory distress and chronicity of the disease process >Oxygen delivery may be improved by upright position and breathing exercises to decrease airway collapse, dyspnea and work of breathing

EVALUATION After 4 hours of nursing interventions the patient experience an effective breathing pattern.

>Cyanosis may be peripheral in nail beds or central in lips or earlobes .Duskiness and central cyanosis indicate advanced hypoxemia.

>Encourage expectoration of sputum; suction when indicated

>Thick, tenacious, copious secretions are major source if ineffective airways. Deep suctioning may be required when cough is ineffective for expectoration of secretions.

>Evaluate level of activity tolerance. Provide calm and quiet environment.

>During severe or acute respiratory distress, patient maybe totally unable to perform basic self care activities because of hypoxemia and dyspnea. >Multiple external stimuli and presence f dyspnea may prevent relaxation and inhibit sleep.

>Evaluate sleep patterns, note report of difficulties and whether patient feels well rested.


NURSING DIAGNOSIS Altered body temperature related to bacterial invasion in the lungs
