Diseases Process

Instructed patient about external fistulas cause discharge through the skin. They are accompanied by other symptoms, including: abdominal pain, painful bowel obstruction, fever, elevated white blood cell count. Prevent skin maceration and breakdown from corrosive effluent and wound infection. Patient comfort, accurate measurement of effluents, patient mobility protect skin from damage from effluent, containment of effluent, odor control.
Instructed patient through the use of negative pressure wound therapy, a standard surgical drain, and optimized nutrition, fistula drainage was redirected and the abdominal wound healed, leaving a drain controlled enterocutaneous fistula. Patient control of fistula drainage and protection of surrounding tissue and skin is a principle of early fistula management.
Instructed patient classic barriers to spontaneous closure include distal obstruction, mucocutaneous continuity (ie, a short or epithelialized tract), and infection or malignancy in the tract. Comprehensive and effective management of the patient with fistula requires attention to fluid and electrolyte replacement, per fistula, skin, protection, infection control.
Instructed patient Enterocutaneous fistulas (ECFs) can cause contents of the intestines or stomach to leak through a wound or opening in the skin. It also can cause: Dehydration, Diarrhea, and Malnutrition. Adequate protein and calories must be provided to maximize healing and minimize complications.
SN instructed patient the skin around a fistula needs to be clean, dry, and grease-less for effective pouch adherence. Enterocutaneous fistulas (ECFs) can cause contents of the intestines or stomach to leak through a wound or opening in the skin. It also can cause: Dehydration, Diarrhea, and Malnutrition.
Pantoprazole is used to treat gastroesophageal reflux. Pantoprazole may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: headache,nausea and vomiting.
Instructed patient the medicines then become less effective when taken. Some people report not feeling well as a reason for stopping their medication or not taking it as prescribed. Tell your doctor if your medicines are making you sick. Don't just stop taking your medicines, because your health depends on it.
Instructed patient it's very important for you to take your HIV medicines exactly as directed. Not taking medications correctly may lower the level of immune system defenders called CD4 cells and cause the level of virus in your blood (viral load) to go up.
Patient and caregiver instructed that low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can happen to everyone who has diabetes. Symptoms include headache, hunger, sweating, pale skin, irritability, dizziness, feeling shaky, or trouble concentrating. Always keep a source of sugar with you in case you have low blood sugar. Sugar sources include fruit juice, hard candy, crackers, raisins, and non-diet soda. Be sure your family and close friends know how to help you in an emergency.
SN instructed patient psychological stresses such as difficulties with relationships, job pressures, financial strain, and even concerns about self-worth can contribute to hyperglycemia. If these issues become overwhelming, decreased attention to the diabetes treatment plan may also contribute to hyperglycemia.
