Alcohol causes an impairment on the vasoconstriction of the blood vessels resulting in hypotension and/or syncope. The patient could also use compression stockings to improve the blood flow thus reducing venous pooling. To reduce venous pooling, the patient could also do exercises known as PCMs like flexing hands or feet as this promotes the blood flowing. A clinical trial of patients with at least 100-200 episodes has shown that patients who use conventional therapy with PCMs have 76 syncope episodes to the patients on the conventional therapy have 142 episodes. Therefore, patients on the conventional therapy and PCMs are have reduced compared to conventional therapy alone (van Dijk et al 2006).
Lab tests when on furosemide can increase blood glucose, blood urea nitrogen, serum amylase, cholesterol, triglycerides and serum electrolytes. Herbal and food can be effect furosemide. Ginseng which is found in many products may decrease the effect of furosemide. The patient needs to be educated about this, and to read the label. Frusemide is used to treat, the same condition as pediatric, cardiac pulmonary and kidney disease.
First educating the patient on type 1 diabetes and urinary tract infection would be verbally implemented. Once the patient has a background on what was happening to their body education on the medication that would need to be taken to control type 1 diabetes and fix the urinary tract infection would be explain. Then how to appropriately inject insulin and take blood sugar would be taught and ways of how to prevent a urinary tract infection for the future would be addressed. Lastly, the proper diet for a diabetic would be addressed. Written instructions would be given to the patient and a follow up date would be made to evaluate and see how the patient is handling all of the new medication and patient teaching (Vera, 2013,
NCCIH-supported studies are investigating meditation for: relieving psychological distress and improving physical health in people with type 2 diabetes, regulating emotions, relieving stress and enhancing management, reducing stress and improving sleep and psychological well-being to reduce the risk of heart disease. Relaxation and meditation, as a team, contribute to improving one’s health and stress levels. One can counteract the negative effects of stress by learning how to evoke the relaxation response, a state of deep rest that is the polar opposite of the stress response. As a result, one’s system becomes
al, 2013). Several studies have showed that yoga helps reduce anger, and improves overall sleep quality. In this particular preliminary study, results showed that yoga could be an effective adjunct therapy that helps improve hyper arousal symptoms associated with PTSD. A recent study showed that yoga was included in 28.8% of detailed VA PTSD treatment programs (Staples et. al, 2013).
Post operative, the Cardiac Surgeon had ordered targeted systolic blood pressure of less than 130mmHg. The surgeon had prescribed blood pressure medication, such as Sodium Nitroproside infusion and for pain, Dormicum plus Morphine infusion. As a critical care nurse I need to monitor and observe patient very closely. I need to administer the medication that was prescribed accordingly. When Mr. C begins to arouse as a result of the anesthesia is wearing off, he started to grimace and his blood pressure shut up above the target level.
The American Heart Association states, with at least 30 minutes of relaxation or meditation, it could help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. Since stress is the natural alarm in our bodies, it releases adrenaline accompanied by fast breathing which causes an increase in the heart rate and blood pressure. However, when meditation is being performed, the heart rate begins to lower, and blood circulation begins to improve. A recent study in 2012 showed that African Americans with heart disease that practiced meditation regularly were about 48% less likely to have a stroke or heart attack than an African American that attended an educational health class for more than five years.

The capillary refill may be delayed and the urine output is reduced to 20-30 mL/h (Brown & Edwards, 2013). Evidence of this can be seen within Mr Jensen’s post-operative assessment data. He has tachycardia of 107 bpm, his blood pressure is currently 104/55mmHg which is low, and he has an increased respiratory rate of 24 breaths per
