Cardiovascular Diseases Based on the signs and symptoms of Mrs. J, she requires an immediate intervention which will enable clear her airway. Based on my own opinion, she should be subjected to ABC which is airway, breathing and circulation. She also has a low oxygen concentration of only spo2 82% which is low compared to the normal range which is about 90%. It is important to consider all her vitals and also all the signs and symptoms for effective treatment. The first intervention would be application of nasal cannula in order to ensure there is enough oxygen concentration in Mrs. J’s body and also proper positioning of her head to ensure she is comfortable while treatment is ongoing (Christensen, 2016). Administration of IV furosemide would initiate the treatment process and then other drugs would follow as indicated below. 1. IV furosemide (Lasix): it is used to remove excessive fluids in the body. Mrs. J require Lasix diuretic since she is having a peripheral pulse, visible jugular veins, breathing problems and also lung crackles. It is important to monitor Mrs. J’s kidney during the treatment period to ensure there are no arising kidney issues. 2. Enalapril (vasotec): it is a drug used to remedy hypertension and congestive heart failure where by it is used together with a diuretic such as Lasix. Vasotec inhibit angiotensin conversion hence allowing conversion of enzymes (Yousuf and Brightling, 2018).
