Nursing Diagnosis: Impaired physical mobility related to lose consciousness ,head injury
Objectives: at the end of nursing intervention, patient will maintain skin integrity
Objective Cues
Change positions at least every 2 hr

Reduces risk of tissue ischemia/injury.

Position in prone position once or

twice a day.

Helps maintain functional hip


Inspect skin regularly, particularly

over bony prominences.

Pressure points over bony

prominences are most at risk for
decreased perfusion/ischemia.

Get client up in wheel chair as soon

as vital signs are stable.
Consult with physical therapist
regarding active, resistive exercises
and client ambulation.

Mechanism of Action:
It works by slowing down impulses in the brain that cause seizures.
Treating certain types of seizures (eg, status epilepticus). It is also used to prevent and treat seizures that may occur during or after
brain or nervous system surgery. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

you are allergic to any ingredient in Phenytoin or to another hydantoin (eg, fosphenytoin)

you have certain types of heart problems (eg, very slow heart beat, certain types of heart block, Adams-Stokes syndrome)

Adverse Reactions:
Constipation; dizziness; headache; mild nervousness; nausea; trouble sleeping; vomiting.
Nursing Considerations:
Phenytoin may cause dizziness. This effect may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Phenytoin with
caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.
Check with your doctor before you drink alcohol while you are taking Phenytoin . Alcohol may increase or decrease the amount of
medicine in your blood.
Do not change brands or dose forms (eg, tablets, suspension, injection) of Phenytoin without talking with your doctor.
Do NOT take more than the recommended dose without checking with your doctor.
Proper dental care is important while you are taking Phenytoin . Brush and floss your teeth and visit the dentist regularly.
Phenytoin may raise your blood sugar. High blood sugar may make you feel confused, drowsy, or thirsty. It can also make you
flush, breathe faster, or have a fruit-like breath odor. If these symptoms occur, tell your doctor right awa

Drug Classification: autonomic nervous system agent; anticholinergic
Mechanism of Action: Atrovent (ipratropium) is a bronchodilator that relaxes muscles in the airways and increases air flow to the
Atrovent is used to prevent bronchospasm, or narrowing airways in the lungs, in people with bronchitis, emphysema, or COPD
(chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).
Adverse Reactions
blurred vision, eye pain, or seeing halos around lights;
pain or burning when you urinate;
urinating less than usual or not at all; or
worsening of your symptoms.
Nursing Considerations

Monitor respiratory status; auscultate lungs before and after inhalation.

Report treatment failure (exacerbation of respiratory symptoms) to physician.

Name of Drug: Ranitidine

Brand: Zantac

Classification: Histamine-receptor antagonist

Dose and Frequency: 150 mg PO BID or 300 mg at bedtime

Nursing Considerations:
Monitor patient for adverse reactions, especially hypotension and arrhythmias.
Peridically monitor lab tests, such as cbc and renal and hepatic studies.

Classification: Anticoagulant
Mechanism of Action: Inhibits thrombus and clot formation by blocking factor Xa and factor IIa.

Patients at risk for thromboembolic complications due to severely restricted mobility during acute illness
Prevention of pulmonary embolism and deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) after abdominal surgery
Prevention of ischemic complications of unstable angina or non-Q-wave myocardial infarction

Nursing Considerations:
Monitor CBC and platelet counts. Watch for signs and symptoms of bleeding or bruising.
Monitor fluid intake and output. Watch for fluid retention and edema.


Classification: proton pump inhibitors
