· Weakness, fatigue.
· Changes in vital signs, presence of dysritmia.
Nursing Interventions Activity Intolerance
1. Check vital signs before and after activity, especially when patients using vasodilators, diuretic.
Rational: orthostatic hypotension may occur with activity due to drug effects (vasodilatation), the transfer of liquid or to influence cardiac function.
2. Record the cardiopulmonary response to activity, noted tachycardia, dysrhythmias, dyspnea, sweating, pale.
Rational: The decrease or the inability of the myocardium to increase the volume during exercise may lead to an immediate increase of heart frequency.
3. Review the causes of weakness examples of treatment, pain, medication.
Rationale: The downside is the side effects of some drugs (beta blockers, traquilizer, sedatives), full of pain and stress program also requires energy and causes weakness.
4. Evaluation of the increase of activity intolerance.
Rational: to show an increase in cardiac decompensation rather than excess activity.
5. Provide assistance in self-care activities as indicated, interspersed with rest periods of activity.
Rational: The fulfillment of self-care needs of patients without affecting myocardial stress.
6. Implement the cardiac rehabilitation program or activity.
Rational: the gradual increase in cardiac work menghindarai activity or consumption of oxygen. Strengthening and improvement of cardiac function under stress, when cardiac dysfunction can not be good again.
