Transcript of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Lung Disease
characterized by
small airway
obstruction and
reduction in
expiratory flow
What is COPD?
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Childhood Respiratory Disease
Family Hx
Other Medical Conditions
Heart and Lung
Activity intolerance
Barrel Chest
Thickened bronchial walls
Excessive production of mucus in bronchi w/ recurrent cough >3 months consecutive 2 years
Inflammation in the bronchial walls
Hyperplasia of mucous-secreting glands
Chronic Bronchitis
Permanent destruction alveolar walls
Loss of lung elasticity
Airway walls thicken
Bronchioles are narrowed
Smaller, narrowed airway
Decreased O2 in blood
Compensates by increasing resp rate
History & Pysical
Chest X-ray
Chronic cough
Progressive Dyspnea
Hx of Exposure
Stage 0
- At Risk (Normal Spriometry with symptoms)
Stage I
- Mild COPD ( abnormal Spriometry with chronic cough w/out sputum)
Stage II
- Moderate COPD (Abnormal spriometry with dyspnea, chronic cough, sputum production)
Stage III
- Severe COPD (Respitory failure or signs of right sided heart failure)
Classification of COPD
Work-related hazards
Family History
Frequent Respiratory Illness
Chronic Cough
Childhood Respiratory Illness
Risk Factors
What is COPD?
Assessment for COPD
Diagnosis for COPD
Therapy for COPD
Nursing Interventions
Nursing Diagnoses
Therapy for COPD
Lung Volume Reduction Surgery (LVRS)
Lung Transplant
Breathing Exercises
Abdominal Breathing
Pursed-lip breathing
Bronchodilators (open airways)
Anticholenergics (Reduce hypersensitivity)
Steroids (Reduce inflammation)
Antibiotics (Tx infections)
Nursing Interventions
Low Dose O2
Skin Color
Breath Sounds
Provide soft mechanical diet
Oral Care
After Resp Tx's
Candidiasis (oral steriods)
Effective coughing (TCDB)
Nursing Dx
Ineffective airway clearance r/t increased production of secretions AEB consistent cough with sputum production
Imbalanced nutrition: less than body requirements r/t fatigue AEB Pt stating I am too tired to eat lunch today
Self Care deficit r/t activity intolerance AEB Pt states he does not want to shower because he can't catch his breath.
Clinical Manifestation
Progressive Dyspnea
Thin build
Increased diameter of chest (barrel chest)
Quiet/diminished breath sounds
Later stages chronic bronchitis may develop
Chronic Bronchitis
Frequent productive cough
Frequent respiratory infection
Bluish-red color of skin
Scattered crackles, rhonchi, and wheezing breath sounds
Cor Pulmonale (hypertrophy of Right side of heart)

B. "What is bothering you?"
C. "Why do you feel this way?"
