Secondly, the effectiveness of the interventions implemented will be measured. Thirdly, it must be determined how there is collaboration between Ayesha (the child who is the patient), her family, and the multi-professional team within the scope of Ayesha's care plan.
Obviously, her oxygenation level is definitely part of the problem because her asthma exacerbates her breathing. This does not allow her to get the correct amount of oxygenation in her blood at times.
However, Ayesha's asthma as a whole includes things like how much she should rest, what her diet should be like, and how her medications should be managed (medication management). The care plan for Ayesha should definitely also include how her physical limitations are affecting her (the bio-psychosocial aspect).
At the top of the sheet, he or she should annotate the fact that this is an actual problem, not a potential one. In a different box below, the nurse should note that this is related to: Ayesha's rest; Ayesha's diet; and Ayesha's medications.
In the box below that one, there should be a box that says, "As evidenced" (Anon 2009, p. 1). Major indicates that the problem must be there. Minor indicates that the problem may be there but might not be.
In this case, major issues would include things like the following for a checklist to plan for a reduction of the following outcomes: "breathing difficultiesinflammationitchy throatshortness of breath after exertion [and] drop in peak flow rate" (Anon 2010, p. 1). Next, the nursing intervention should be implemented.
The nursing intervention for this checklist on asthma should consist of three things: what the nurse should ask about; what will be measured; and what will be observed and how. There are certain things the nurse should definitely assess, which will be discussed later on in the paper in the section about how Ayesha's needs were assessed and identified.
B. Current and Relevant References to Support Discussion
First, one must ask, what are the triggers of asthma "Longitudinal epidemiological studies of childhood asthmatics have demonstrated that sensitivity to common household allergens is significantly associated with the development of asthma" (Platts-Mills 1999, p. 87).
Secondly, what can be done to counteract the triggers "Bronchodilators relieve symptoms on a short-term basis. Anti-inflammatories help to control systems over the long term. Some people with asthma need both
