Concept Map of a Well Adult
Background Information “Thriving” is a term that refers not only to being alive and relatively healthy, but also to living in a manner to achieve maximum enjoyment and productivity. Each of us takes a different path toward thriving. Our varying ages, environments, economics, and other circumstances play roles in our paths toward thriving. Despite these varying factors, however, all humans are essentially made of the same anatomic parts that function in a specific way. Some shared physical factors remain common to us all. On the whole, health and wellness trends can be more important than any given health status at a moment in time. Identifying a goal and knowing how to best document and track the progress toward achieving that goal is a key duty for nursing staff to teach. The goal might be losing weight, walking after knee surgery, or helping a new mother learn to care for her baby—but all of these goals help us move forward in our paths towards thriving. CLIENT INFORMATION 22 year old male, 5ft 8in, 293lbs Health history includes: diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and asthma. Exercises 1 time a week and food choices are very poor. His legs are very swollen and over the course of 3 weeks, client’s blood pressure has been very elevated. He complains of no pain. Goal for this patient is weight loss and overall better well being. Create a concept map that groups the volunteer’s health history and physical assessment findings into two data clusters. Each data cluster should contain: Four to five of the most pertinent data findings Both objective and subjective data Identify a nursing diagnosis that relates to each of the data clusters. Include three components of the nursing diagnosis: Problem Etiology Two or three signs and symptoms Compile the concept map and wellness diagnoses in a word document.
