CARDIOVASCULAR DISORDERS 2 Cardiovascular disorders During admission, Mrs. J requires immediate intervention which according to my view is that she requires to be subjected to ABC which are airway, breathing and circulation. Her concentration of oxygen is only spo2 of 82% which is too low as compared to the normal range which is about 90%. The nursing intervention that was given to Mrs. J was very important as it helped her in making sure that all the signs and symptoms that she had were considered and medication started immediately. As a result of this application of nasal cannula would form the first intervention ad proper position of Mrs. J’s head to ensure that she is comfortable with the provision of care services Initiation of IV furosemide would then follow and treatment process would take place as per the drugs that have been provided to the patient as indicated below (Copstead and Banasik, 2013): 1. IV furosemide (Lasix): from the symptoms given of lung crackles, breathing problems, jugular veins that are visible, peripheral pulses that are weak and anxiety, the patient needs Lasix diuretic which helps in the removal of excess fluid available in the body through kidneys. Routine assessment of Mrs. J’s kidney therefore needs to be done. 2. Enalapril (Vasotec): is used in the working of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system whereby vasotec is used to inhibit angiotensin conversion and hence allowing conversion of enzymes. It is used to remedy congestive heart failure and hypertension whereby it is used together with diuretic where in this case they used Lasix.
