Perfusion Interventions and Rationales
1 - Assess Pulses Hourly
Assessing the pulses is a critical step in maintaining the healthy perfusion of a client.
2 -Measuring for and application of elastic compression stockings.
In order to prevent clots and improve or maintain adequate perfusion.
3 -Recording and interpreting an ECG.
ECG record of the heart's activity is essential to monitor for abnormal electrical activity.

Cellular Regulation Interventions and Rationales
1 -Assess patient's signs and symptoms of pain and administer pain medication as prescribed.
Assessment allows for pain control and comfort management in the client with cancer. Also allows for care plan modifications, if needed.

2-Perform comfort measures to promote relaxation, such as bathing, repositioning, and relaxation techniques.
These measures reduce muscle tension or spasm, redistribute pressure on body parts, and help patient focus on non-pain-related subjects.

3-Provide patient with information to help increase pain tolerance, such as reasons for pain and length of time it will last.
This educates the patient and encourages compliance in trying alternative pain relief management.

INR OF 4
Normal INR value is 2.0 to 3.0. This patient would probably be on warfarin therapy.
Interventions
1-Monitor physiologic responses for values that remain in normal ranges.
Early bleeding compensatory mechanisms can alter respirations, pulse and blood pressure.

2-Examine surgical and wound dressings.
Measure the amount of bleeding and patient experiences and compare with the normal expected blood loss.

3-Teach about intended effects of the medication that increase the risk for bleeding or prolong clotting.
This enables the patient to avoid situations that could cause bleeding - shaving, harsh tooth brushing, contact sports.
