Pathophysiology of the current

Pathophysiology of Angina By patient:
The Pt said that he came to hospital after he complains of sever
chest pain, shortness of breathing and very tired.
As he say this symptom appear frequently and usually I take
sublingual tablet these symptom disappear, but this time
symptoms more sever than any time previous so my family bring
me to hospital.

Pathophysiology of Angina:
Angina pectoris is the medical term for chest pain or discomfort
due to coronary heart disease. Angina is a symptom of a
condition called myocardial ischemia. It occurs when the heart
muscle (myocardium) doesn't get as much blood (hence as much
oxygen) as it needs. This usually happens because one or more
of the heart's arteries (blood vessels that supply blood to the
heart muscle) is narrowed or blocked.
Insufficient blood supply is called ischemia.
Angina also can occur in people with valvular heart disease,
cardiomyopathy (this is an enlarged heart due to disease) or
uncontrolled high blood pressure. These cases are rare, though.
Typical angina is uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or
pain in the center of the chest. The discomfort also may be felt in
the neck, jaw, shoulder, back or arm. Many types of chest
discomfort aren't related to angina. Acid reflux (heartburn) and
lung infection or inflammation are examples.
What is unstable angina?
In people with unstable angina, the chest pain is unexpected and
usually occurs while at rest. The discomfort may be more severe
and prolonged than typical angina or be the first time a person
has angina. The most common cause is reduced blood flow to the

heart muscle because the coronary arteries are narrowed by fatty

buildups (atherosclerosis).
An artery may be abnormally constricted or partially blocked by a
blood clot. Inflammation, infection and secondary causes also can
lead to unstable angina.
Unstable angina is an acute coronary syndrome and should be treated as an

People with new, worsening or persistent chest discomfort should

be evaluated in a hospital emergency department or "chest pain
unit" and monitored carefully. They're at increased risk for
Acute myocardial infarction (heart attack).
Severe cardiac arrhythmias. These may include ventricular
tachycardia and fibrillation.
Cardiac arrest leading to sudden death.

Nursing care

Nursing Priorities

Relieve/control pain.
Prevent/minimize development of myocardial complications.
Provide information about disease process/prognosis and
Support patient/SO in initiating necessary lifestyle/behavioral

Nursing diagnosing:
Acute Pain

May be related to

Decreased myocardial blood flow

Increased cardiac workload/oxygen consumption

Planning and Goals

patient goal include immediate and appropriate treatment and relive of pain

Nursing intervention


Identify precipitating event, if any; frequency,

duration, intensity, and location of pain.

Helps differentiate this chest pain,

and aids in evaluating possible
progression to unstable angina.
unstable angina is more intense,
occurs unpredictably, may last longer,
and is not usually relieved by

e.g., dyspnea, nausea/vomiting, dizziness,
palpitations, desire to micturate.

Decreased cardiac output stimulates

variety of vague sensations that

Reduces myocardial oxygen demand

to minimize risk of tissue necrosis.

Monitor heart rate/rhythm.

Patients with unstable angina have

an increased risk of acute lifethreatening dysrhythmias, which
occur in response to ischemic
changes and/or stress.

digestion, reducing risk of anginal
Potent narcotic analgesic may be
used in acute onset because of its
several beneficial effects, e.g.,
causes peripheral vasodilation and
reduces myocardial workload; has a
sedative effect to produce relaxation;

Provide light meals. Have patient rest for 1 hr

after meals.
Morphine sulphate (MS)

effectively relieves severe chest pain.

Evaluation (Expected Patient Outcomes)

Demonstrate relief of pain as evidenced by stable vital signs, absence of
muscle tension and restlessness

Nursing diagnosing:
Risk for decreased Cardiac Output
May be related to

Alterations in rate/rhythm and electrical conduction

Planning and Goals

patient goal include maintain of cardiac out put

Nursing intervention

Provide for adequate rest periods. Assist
self-care activities, as indicated.
Stress importance of avoiding straining/
bearing down,
especially during defecation.
Assess for signs and symptoms of heart

(bradycardia), which may be followed
by rebound tachycardia, both of
which may impair cardiac output.
Angina is only a symptom of
underlying pathology causing
myocardial ischemia. Disease may
compromise cardiac function to point
of decompensation.
Peripheral circulation is reduced
when cardiac output falls, giving the
skin a pale or gray color (depending
on level of hypoxia) and diminishing
the strength of peripheral pulses.
Increases oxygen available for
myocardial uptake to improve
contractility, reduce ischemia, and
reduce lactic acid levels.

Evaluation (Expected Patient Outcomes)

Demonstrate increased activity tolerance.
Participate in behaviors/activities that reduce the workload of the heart.

Nursing diagnosing:

May be related to

Situational crises
Threat to self-concept (altered image/abilities)
Underlying pathophysiological response
Threat to or change in health status (even death)
Negative self-talk

Planning and Goals

patient goal include relive of anxiety

Nursing intervention


Explain purpose of tests and procedures,

Reduces anxiety attributable to fear

of unknown diagnosis and prognosis.

Promote expression of feelings and fears,

Unexpressed feelings may create

internal turmoil and affect self-image.
Verbalization of concerns reduces
tension, verifies level of coping, and
facilitates dealing with feelings.

know these are normal reactions. Note
statements of concern, such asHeart
attack is inevitable.
Tell patient the medical regimen has
been designed to Reduce/limit future
attacks and increase cardiac stability.
Administer sedatives, tranquilizers, as

to increase confidence in medical
program, and to integrate abilities
into perceptions of self.
May be desired to help patient relax
until physically able to reestablish
adequate coping strategies.

Evaluation (Expected Patient Outcomes)

Report anxiety is reduced to a manageable level.
Express concerns about effect of disease on lifestyle, position within family
Demonstrate effective coping strategies/problem-solving skills.


Nursing diagnosing:
Knowledge, deficient [Learning Need] regarding condition, treatment needs,
self-care and discharge needs
May be related to

Lack of exposure
Inaccurate/misinterpretation of information
Unfamiliarity with information resources

Planning and Goals

Patient goal include awareness of the disease process and understanding of
the prescribed care, adherence to the self-care program,

Nursing intervention
Discuss pathophysiology of condition.
Encourage avoidance of factors/situations
that may precipitate anginal episode
e.g., emotional stress, extensive or intense
physical exertion,

Review importance of weight control,

cessation of smoking, dietary changes,
and exercise.

Discuss steps to take when anginal

attacks occur,
Review symptoms to be reported to
physician, e.g., increase in
frequency/duration of attacks, changes
in response to medications.

Patients with angina need to learn
why it occurs and what they can do to
control it.
May reduce incidence/severity of
ischemic episodes.
Helps patient manage symptoms.
Knowledge of the significance of risk
factors provides patient with
opportunity to make needed
Patients with high cholesterol who
do not respond to 6- month program
of low-fat diet and regular exercise
will require medication.
Being prepared for an event takes
away the fear that patient will not
know what to do if attack occurs.
Knowledge of expectations can avoid
undue concern for insignificant
reasons or delay in treatment of
important symptoms.

Evaluation (Expected Patient Outcomes)


Participate in learning process.

Assume responsibility for own learning, looking for information and asking
