Asthma is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes airway hyperresponsiveness, mucus production, and mucosal edema resulting in reversible airflow obstruction. Allergens, air pollutants, cold weather, physical exertion, strong odors, and medications are common predisposing factors for asthma.
When an individual is exposed to a trigger, an immediate inflammatory response with bronchospasm happens. . This inflammatory process leads to recurrent episodes of asthmatic symptoms such as cough, dyspnea, wheezing, and increased mucus production. Status asthmaticus is severe and persistent asthma that does not respond to usual therapy; attacks can occur with little or no warning and can progress rapidly to asphyxiation.
Nursing Care Plans, the nursing care plan focuses on preventing the hypersensitivity reaction, controlling the allergens, maintaining airway patency and preventing the occurrence of reversible complications. Here are four (4) nursing care plans (NCP) for bronchial asthma : Ineffective Breathing Pattern, ineffective Airway Clearance.
