Dr. Bennett Werner answered. The patient may have no damage to lung tissue but may be unable to inspire a tidal volume sufficient to remove CO, Respiratory failure may develop suddenly (minutes or hours) or gradually (several days or longer). Repeated infections destroy alveoli. • Encourage slow, deep breathing; turning; and coughing to promote secretion removal. Tissue Oxygen Needs. PREDISPOSING FACTORS FOR ACUTE RESPIRATORY FAILURE, • Direct lung injury: aspiration; severe, disseminated pulmonary infection; near-drowning; toxic gas inhalation; airway contusion, • Indirect lung injury: systemic inflammatory response syndrome, sepsis/septic shock, severe nonthoracic trauma, cardiopulmonary bypass, Respiratory failure is not a disease but a symptom of an underlying pathologic condition affecting lung function, O2 delivery, cardiac output (CO), or the baseline metabolic state. 2 = Substantially compromised 1. At the lung apex, V/Q ratios are greater than 1 (more ventilation than perfusion). Dysfunction may be slowly progressive (e.g., muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis), progressive with no potential of recovery (e.g., ALS), rapid with good expectation of recovery (e.g., Guillain-Barré syndrome), or stable for extended periods of time (e.g., poliomyelitis, myasthenia gravis). Numerous disorders can compromise lung ventilation and subsequent carbon dioxide removal (see Table 68-1 and eTable 68-1). Therefore, if you’re not getting good gas exchange in the lungs and oxygenating your blood, your organs will suffer. • Pneumonia var windowOpen; /* */ The heart fails when, because of intrinsic disease or structural it cannot handle a normal blood volume or, in absence of disease, cannot tolerate a sudden expansion in blood volume. Bronchospasm, edema of the bronchial mucosa, and plugging of small airways with secretions greatly reduce airflow. 68-4 Range of ventilation-to-perfusion (V/Q) relationships. Patients with these conditions are at risk for respiratory failure because the medulla does not alter the respiratory rate in response to a change in PaCO2. Experiences stable weight and muscle tone. The diagnosis of heart Prevent normal rib cage expansion, resulting in inadequate gas exchange. ↓ PaO2 and ↑ PaCO2. Cardiac System Nursing Diagnosis* CRF can also happen when your lungs cannot get the carbon dioxide out of your blood. In this situation, CO is markedly elevated and vascular resistance is low. Apart from direct brainstem dysfunction, metabolic or structural brain injury resulting in decreased or loss of consciousness may interfere with the patient’s ability to manage secretions or adequately protect his or her airway. For example, patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis (acute exacerbation), or multiple sclerosis are at risk for respiratory failure because the respiratory muscles are weakened or paralyzed as a result of the underlying neuromuscular condition. A sudden decrease in PaO2 or a rapid rise in PaCO2 implies a serious condition, which can rapidly become a life-threatening emergency. Additional contributing factors to hypoxemic respiratory failure include increases in O2 demand such as with severe anxiety or agitation and unrelieved pain. Outcomes (NOC) Select appropriate nursing and collaborative management strategies for the patient with ARDS. What oxygen is to the lungs, such is hope to the meaning of life. • Monitor for respiratory muscle fatigue to provide ventilatory support as needed. [CDATA[ */ Additionally, it increases muscle tension, producing generalized muscle rigidity. Many different diseases can cause a limitation in ventilatory supply (see Table 68-1 and eTable 68-1). Diseases that interfere with adequate O2 transfer result in hypoxemia. Remember that even though PaO2 and PaCO2 determine the definition of respiratory failure, the major cause of respiratory failure is the lung’s inability to meet the O2 needs of the tissues. Your doctor will ask you about lung diseases or conditions you currently have or have had in the past to learn more about your medical history. The major function of the respiratory system is gas exchange. Ultimately respiratory muscle fatigue and ventilatory failure occur due to the additional work needed to inspire adequate tidal volumes against increased airway resistance and air trapped within the alveoli. }); The embolus limits blood flow but has no effect on airflow to the alveoli, again causing V/Q mismatch, Frequently, hypoxemic respiratory failure is caused by a combination of two or more of the following: V/Q mismatch, shunt, diffusion limitation, and alveolar hypoventilation. Log In or Register to continue • Acute myopathy Brainstem infarction, head injury You may detect manifestations of respiratory failure that are specific (primary) (arising from the respiratory system) or nonspecific (secondary) (arising from other body systems) (Table 68-2). • Nutrient intake _____ Clinical Manifestations Nursing Diagnoses include possible ineffective airway clearance and breathing pattern; high risk for aspiration, infection, and/or altered respiratory function; Assessments include determining baseline respiratory status (assess patient’s ability to cough and deep breathe effectively, auscultate the chest, and note the breathing pattern); monitor chest x-rays, blood gas levels, CBC, sputum cultures, and … Many diseases and conditions cause V/Q mismatch (Fig. Feel Like You Don’t Belong in Nursing School? This difference causes the PaO2 to be higher at the apex of the lung and lower at the base. Inability to speak in complete sentences without pausing to breathe Diffusion limitation may also occur in a high CO state (e.g., hepatopulmonary syndrome) or other disease states (e.g., inflammatory response seen with pancreatitis or severe brain trauma) unrelated to lung tissue damage.

People of all ages can suffer respiratory failure, infants, and young children, through adults to old age. • Administer parenteral feeding to meet nutritional needs if patient cannot tolerate oral or enteral feedings. Hypercapnic respiratory failure is sometimes called ventilatory failure because the primary problem is the respiratory system’s inability to remove sufficient CO2 to maintain a normal PaCO2. • Monitor determinants of tissue oxygen delivery (e.g., PaO2, SaO2, hemoglobin levels, cardiac output) to plan appropriate interventions. Manifestations of respiratory failure are related to the extent of change in PaO2 or PaCO2, the rapidity of change (acute versus chronic), and the patient’s ability to compensate for this change. Ineffective Breathing Pattern RT Retained Secretions; Outcomes. • High cardiac output states: diffusion limitation • Assist with insertion of an endotracheal tube by gathering necessary intubation and emergency equipment, positioning patient, ensuring adequate intravenous (IV) access, administering medications as ordered, and monitoring the patient for complications during insertion to achieve adequate oxygenation and effective ventilation. The nurse has been monitoring the client’s breathing and respiratory rate to assess for symptoms of pending respiratory failure. _stq.push([ 'view', {v:'ext',j:'1:5.8.1',blog:'125227798',post:'107590',tz:'0',srv:'nursekey.com'} ]); • Administer aerosol treatments (e.g., nebulizer) as ordered to promote better airflow and secretion removal. Respiratory failure is classified as hypoxemic or hypercapnic (Fig. • Asthma O2 therapy alone is often ineffective in increasing the PaO2 if hypoxemia is due to shunt. Hypercapnic Respiratory Failure. 1. Here are some factors that may be related to Impaired Gas Exchange: 1. jQuery( document.body ).on( 'click', 'a.share-twitter', function() { The result is an initial ↓ in PaO, Bronchospasm escalates in severity rather than responding to therapy. Hypercapnic respiratory failure is also referred to as ventilatory failure because the primary problem is insufficient CO2 removal. • Toxic inhalation (e.g., smoke inhalation) 2. • Administer enteral feedings to meet nutritional needs if patient cannot tolerate oral feedings.

Proper rest is extremely important for patients suffering from heart failure, since it can decrease the need for oxygen and workload of the heart. 2 = Substantial deviation from normal range Neuromuscular System In many cases acute respiratory failure may lead to death if you do not quickly treat. • Brainstem injury or infarction Frequently, the first indication of respiratory failure is a change in the patient’s mental status. Outcomes (NOC) Experiences stable weight and muscle tone Failure of O2 use most commonly occurs in septic shock. • Inflammatory state and related alveolar injury Ventilation Assistance Blood circulates through the pulmonary capillary bed rapidly, allowing less time for gas exchange to occur.14, Alveolar hypoventilation is a generalized decrease in ventilation that results in an increase in the PaCO2 and a consequent decrease in PaO2.
