1 Lower Respiratory Disorders
Continued Pulmonary edema - Aspiration

2 Pulmonary edema Rapid shift of fluid from the plasma to pulmonary interstitial tissue and alveoli Causes impaired gas exchange

3 Pulmonary edema d/t left ventricular failure 
Backed up blood in the pulmonary vein  h pressure in pulmonary vascular system  Fluids “leak” into interstitial space & alveoli

4 Pulmonary edema Etiology / Contributing factors
Left ventricular failure Fluid overload IV’s Drug OD

5 Pulmonary edema Clinical Manifestations Dyspnea Sudden Orthopnea
Cyanotic (central) “air hunger” Tachypnea Cough Copious sputum Frothy Blood tinged

6 Pulmonary edema Clinical Manifestations Pulse BS
Tachycardia Bounding BS Crackles Fine  course Engorged neck & hand veins

7 Pulmonary edema Clinical Manifestations Anxiety Confusion Stupor

8 Pulmonary edema Diagnostic exam Auscultation Crackles X-ray V/S
Tachycardia Tachypnea Pulse oximetry i ABG’s PaO2

9 Pulmonary edema Treatment Goal: O2 Mech. Vent Remove fluid
h oxygenation O2 Mask Non-rebreather Mech. Vent PEEP

10 Pulmonary edema Diuretics Lasix
Digitalis / Digoxin lanoxin Bronchodilators Aminophylline Morphine i peripheral resistance  i pressure in pulmonary capillaries  i leakage i anxiety

11 Pulmonary edema Which of the following electrolytes must be closely monitored in a patient on Lasix diuretic therapy? Chloride Hydrogen Magnesium Potassium Sodium

12 Pulmonary edema What nursing actions must be performed before administering digitalis? This is not multiple choice – you should know this one cold! What do you do if the apical pulse is <60?

13 Pulmonary edema Diagnosis:
Impaired Gas Exchange: the fluid –filled alveoli decreases the exchange of gases Out come:  the client will demonstrate improved gas exchange, as evidenced by rising PO2 to 55 or 60 mm Hg, Oxygen saturation above 90%, normaralizing pH, decreasing anxiety and dyspnea, and fewer crackles

14 Pulmonary edema Nursing management Diet Sodium Potassium Fluids I&O
Low Potassium High Fluids Decreased / restricted I&O Weights Q day

15 Pulmonary edema Nursing management Position to promote circulation
HOB h Dangle legs

16 Pulmonary edema Nursing management Provide psychological support
Monitor meds

17 Acute Respiratory Failure
Definition Sudden & life-threatening i gas exchange “It exists when the exchange of O2 for CO2 in the lungs cannot keep us with the rate of O2 consumption & CO2 production.” Ventilation & Perfusion are impaired

18 Acute Respiratory Failure
ABG’s PaO2 < 50 mmHg PaCO2 > 50 mmHg Arterial pH < 7.35

19 Acute Respiratory Failure
Causes of ARF i respiratory drive TBI, MS, Sedatives, hypothyroidism Dysfunction of the chest wall Nerve, spinal cord, neuromuscular junction disorders Dysfunctional Lung Parenchyma

20 Acute Respiratory Failure
S&S Early Restlessness Fatigue H/A Dyspnea Respirations Air hunger Pulse h BP

21 Acute Respiratory Failure
S&S Progresses Confusion Central cyanosis Diaphoresis Resp. arrest

22 Acute Respiratory Failure
Nursing management Assist with intubation & maintain mechanical ventilation Assess respiratory status LOC ABG’s SpO2 VS

23 Acute Respiratory Failure
Nursing management Implement strategies to prevent complications TCDB Oral care Skin care ROM Address problems that led to ARF

24 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
AKA ARDS Adult Respiratory distress syndrome

25 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
ARDS is acute, Severe injury to most or all of both lungs. ARDS is not a specific disease; ARDS can be confused with congestive heart failure IT is respiratory failure that occurs as a result of massive trauma to the lungs

26 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Characterized by sudden and progressive pulmonary edema increasing bilateral infiltrates on chest x-ray Hypoxemia reduced lung compliance Not due to left side heart failure Occurs as a result of injury to alveolar capillary membrane (D/T: aspiration, drug OD, smoke, infection, shock, trauma, sepsis*)

27 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Injury  Inflammatory response  release chemical (histamine etc.) which cause injury to the alveolar capillary membrane  Leakage of fluid into the alveolar interstitial space and alt. Capillary beds Protein, blood cells and fluid enter alveoli 

28 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Decrease in surfactant  Alveoli collapse (atelectasis) and fibrotic changes  Lungs become stiff, less compliant, very hard to inspire  Decrease in gas exchange /shunted  Hypoxia  Atelectasis and edema worsen  Lungs may hemorrhage

29 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Etiology/Contributing factors Infection Trauma Narcotic OD, Inhalation of irritants Aspiration

30 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Clinical manifestations Rapid onset of severe dyspnea with in hours Intercostal and suprasternal retractions Increased resp rate Crackles Hypoxemia that does not respond to O2 Confusion anxiety Restlessness, apprehension Cyanosis

31 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
ABG’s PaO2 < 70mmHg PaCO2 > 35 HCO3 Normal < 22 pH low Analysis Resp. and met. Acidosis

32 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Diagnostic exams/procedures X-ray appears to be white due to excessive fluid in the lungs

33 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Treatment O2 Intubation and mechanical vent. Maintain PaO2 at > 60mm Hg PEEP Improves oxygenation Increases functional residual capacity Reverse alveolar collapse Use a lower FiO2 Systemic hypotension Fluid leakage

34 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Pulmonary vasodilators Surfactant replacement Corticosteroids Sedatives due to anxiety and ventilator Diuretics Circulatory support Adequate fluid volume May limit fluids Nutritional Neuromuscular blockers / paralytic drugs

35 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome
Nursing intervention Rest Change position monitor O2 sat in different positions High fowlers Prone Complications High death rate (50-60%) No one recovers 100%

36 Pulmonary Hypertension
Pathophysiology Pulmonary arteries narrow Vasoconstriction Increased Pulmonary BP (>30 mmHg) How do you measure pulmonary BP? Only can be measured during right side heart catheterization

37 Pulmonary Hypertension
Pathophysiology If increase in BP  Right ventricle has to work harder Right ventricle hypertrophy enlargement and dilation  Right ventricle fails Precursor to Cor Pulmonale

38 Pulmonary Hypertension
Etiology/Contributing factors Primary: Rare Female > Male Age years hereditary tendency usually die within 5 years of diagnosis Secondary: Existing cardiac or pulmonary disease Mitral valve disease COPD

39 Pulmonary Hypertension
Clinical manifestations of Pulmonary hypertension without right sided heart failure (Not clinically evident until late in progression) Dyspnea and fatigue that worsens over time Cyanosis and Tachypnea Crackles and decrease breath sounds

40 Pulmonary Hypertension
Clinical manifestations of… Right sided heart failure Peripheral edema Ascites Distended neck veins Liver engorgement Crackles Heart murmur

41 Pulmonary Hypertension
Diagnostic exams/procedures ABG’s: PaO2 Decreased Hypoxemia PaCO2 Increased Hypercapnia

42 Pulmonary Hypertension
Diagnostic exams ECG Shows right ventricular hypertrophy Cardiac catheterization Right sided heart catheterization only way to measure pulmonary pressure X-ray Pulmonary function test

43 Pulmonary Hypertension
Treatment Oxygen therapy Vasodilators (in some people) Anticoagulants – Warfarin (Coumadin) Diuretic to decrease blood volume Heart/lung transplant Really there is no cure – death within 2-3 years of diagnosis unless transplant

44 Pulmonary Hypertension
A 66-year-old client takes a potassium-depleting diuretic. Foods that will help to keep the client’s potassium level within normal limits include Bananas Oranges Cantaloupe fish Spinach whole-grain cereals

45 Pulmonary Heart Disease
Pathophysiology Right ventricular failure d/t increased pulmonary pressure Pulmonary artery vasoconstriction Right ventricle has to work harder Right ventricle fails

46 Pulmonary Heart Disease
Right ventricle does not empty normally Backward buildup Increase in Right atrial and systemic venous blood volume Jugular neck veins distend Peripheral edema Angina from right ventricle ischemia

50 Pulmonary Emboli Pathophysiology Emboli:
foreign object that travels through the blood stream blood clot Air Fat Thrombus (thrombi – pl) A stationary clot

51 Pulmonary Emboli Emboli travels into a pulmonary artery causing obstruction Ventilation/perfusion mismatch Ventilation Yes Perfusion no CO2 h  respiratory acidosis

52 Pulmonary Emboli Etiology/Contributing factors
Most PE originate in deep veins of the lower extremities Deep Vein Thrombosis – DVT

53 Pulmonary Emboli S&S of DVT Positive Homan’s sign

72 Lung Cancer Pathophysiology
Carcinogen binds to the DNA and changes it Abnormal growth Usually develops on the wall of the bronchial tree

73 FYI Lung Cancer is the number one cancer killer in the US

74 Lung Cancer Etiology/Contributing factors #1 Tobacco Smoke (85%)
Second hand smoke Carcinogens Asbestos Uranium Arsenic Nickel Iron oxide Radon Coal dust

75 Lung Cancer Clinical manifestations: early
Insidiously and asymptomatic until late stages

76 FYI 70% of lung CA have metastasized by the time of diagnosis

Cough #2 Repeated respiratory tract infection Wheezing Dyspnea

78 Lung Cancer S&S: Late Hemoptysis Chest pain Pleural friction rub
Pleural effusion Finger Clubbing Wt loss Anemia Anorexia

79 Lung Cancer When Lung cells mutate due to cancer, they frequently produce and secrete what endocrine hormone? ACTH T3 (thyroxin) FSH ADH Insulin Growth hormone

80 Lung Cancer An increase secretion of ADH due to lung cancer is diagnosed as what disorder? No hints this time, can you name it? Turn to your neighbor and show them how smart you are!

81 Lung Cancer Dx exams/procedures X-ray CT scan Biopsy via Bronchoscopy

82 Lung Cancer Treatment Removal of Ca tumor Chemotherapy Radiation
Metastasis Radiation To shrink or reduce symptoms

83 Lung Cancer Nursing intervention Preventative measures Dyspnea
Anorexia Pain control Fatigue Grief Hospice Preventative measures #1 Stop smoking

84 Lung Cancer Clients receiving chemotherapy
Enc client to eat soft, non-irritating foods high in protein Watch for S/E of chemotherapy and radiation Administer antiemetics and anti-diarrheals Provide good skin care Reverse isolation Leukopenia neutrophil Stomatitis inflammation of the mucous membranes of the mouth

85 Lung Cancer A client with cancer of the lung is receiving chemotherapy. The nurse will monitor blood values especially: RBC WBC PT/PTT K+ & Cl- These drugs depress the bone marrow, inhibiting the production of blood cells, and a serious decrease in WBC’s increases susceptibility to infection

86 Chemotherapy Question?
The most likely side effect of chemotherapy is: Fatigue Nausea Dehydration Skin ulceration

87 Question? A 40-year-old man has developed Stomatitis after chemotherapy treatment. He should be encouraged to: Eat hot, spicy foods Brush his teeth after each meal and at bedtime Rinse his mouth with commercial mouthwash after each meal Drink plenty of orange juice

88 Question? A 62-year-old client is receiving radiation treatments for lung cancer. The field for radiation therapy is clearly outlined with purple ink. The nurse would treat this field as follows: Bathe it the same as any other part of the body Apply moisturizing lotion to prevent dryness Wipe is with clear water and pat dry as needed only Treat as a stage 1 decubitus ulcer

89 Question? Cancer pain is best managed with the use of
A patient-controlled analgesia pump Short-acting opioids administered around the clock Frequent administration of breakthrough medications Long-acting opioids administered around the clock

90 Question? A client taking opiods for cancer pain begins to require more medication to provide the same amount of analgesia. This is known as Physical dependence Drug tolerance Addiction Equianalgesia

91 Lung Cancer Preventative measures Stop smoking

92 Lung Cancer Complications Pleural effusion
Tumor obstructs Superior vena Cava Ectopic hormone Production mimics the bodies own hormones ADH (anti diuretic hormone) = SIADH (syndrome of inappropriate ADH) No urine output ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic hormone) = Cushing syndrome Atelectasis & Pneumonia Metastasis (brain, bone, lung, liver, lymphnodes)

93 Rib fractures Pathophysiology Etiology/Contributing factors
usually 4th – 9th rib If 1-3 rib high mortality rate Etiology/Contributing factors Blunt vs. Penetrating Spleen and liver damage Trauma Uncontrolled coughing

94 Rib fractures Clinical manifestations Pain Ecchymosis Crepitus
Severe aggravated by Movement Breathing coughing Ecchymosis Crepitus Swelling Deformity

95 Rib fractures Diagnostic exams/procedures X-ray ECG O2 SATs ABG’s

96 Rib fractures Treatment Detect and treat other injuries
Do Not use elastic rib belts (decrease breathing) Control pain so TCDB decrease complications If needed an intercostal nerve block Ribs generally heal in about 6 weeks Ice packs

97 Flail chest Pathophysiology
When multiple ribs are fractures, structural support of the chest is impaired Ribs are fractures at 2 or more sites

98 Flail chest Paradoxical respiration Ineffective ventilation Normal – I
Chest expands Normal – E Chest shrinks Flail chest – I Area of flail chest collapses Flail chest – E Area of flail Chest bulges Ineffective ventilation Hypoxia

99 Flail chest S&S Expiration: Inspiration: Dyspnea Anxious Tachypnea
Tachycardia Paradoxical respiration Expiration: Flail bulges mediastium affected side Inspiration: Flail collapses unaffected side

100 Flail chest Treatment Decrease the work load of breathing Chest tubes?
Oxygen Intubation Mech. Ventilation Chest tubes? Stabilize chest severe
