Apply strategies for safe, effective multidimensional nursing practice when providing care for clients with neurological disorders.

 

The first couple of modules focused on the central nervous and peripheral nervous systems. The course competency was completed by creating a presentation on dementia and a discussion post about central nervous system disorders. I made a presentation on Alzheimer’s Disease. I learned about Alzheimer’s that the etiology of the disease is unknown, and the most significant risk factors are age, gender, and genetics. One skill that I will use in my nursing practice is to assess the patient’s functional status. This includes changes in memory, performing ADLs, and current work status to evaluate the functional status (Ignatavicius et al., 2021).

 

Outline appropriate nursing strategies for providing care to perioperative clients.

 

In Module 4, we discussed preoperative measures. A live classroom code completed the course competency. I answered with obtaining consent. Appropriate nursing strategies for providing care to the perioperative client are monitoring and managing care, including cough and deep breath every 2 hours, providing oral hygiene, using a bladder scanner to assess for urine retention, and ambulating early. One thing that I learned is not to place pillows under the knees because it decreases venous return. We are taught to keep the patient comfortable, and sometimes that includes positioning as the least invasive measure. I will use this in my practice to consider the client’s psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual assessments. Surgery is a stressor for everyone. I will encourage and praise the client’s most minor achievements (even if it’s passing gas) (Ignatavicius et al., 2021).

 

Compare nursing interventions for clients with complex disorders.

 

In Module 5, we discussed complex respiratory disorders. There was no specific course competency on this subject; however, the remediation for ATI was due, and exam 1 was in this week. Before this module, I understood that the hallmark sign for ARDS was refractory hypoxemia. However, I learned that the other key features include dyspnea, non-cardiac-related bilateral pulmonary edema, and dense pulmonary infiltrates. I will add to my practice is proving the patient and using PEEP. I will also monitor for s
