Example text

Coping Styles Individuals cope with a critical illness in different ways and their pre-illness coping style, personality traits, or temperament will assist you in anticipating coping styles in the critical care setting. Include the patient's family when assessing previous resources, coping skills, or defense mechanisms that strengthen adaptation or problem-solving resolution. For instance, some patients want to be informed of everything that is happening with them in the ICU. Providing information reduces their anxiety and gives them a sense of control.

Renal System Urinary characteristics and electrolyte status are the major parameters used to evaluate the function of the kidneys. In conjunction with the cardiovascular system, the renal system's impact on fluid volume status is also assessed. Most critically ill patients have a Foley catheter in place to evaluate urinary output every 1 to 2 hours. Note the amount and color of the urine and, if warranted, obtain a sample to assess for the abnormal presence of glucose, protein, and blood. Inspect the genitalia for inflammation, swelling, ulcers, and drainage.
