English term or phrase: + or – the patient
During the procedure, the patient will require close observation to prevent complications associated with PD (peritoneal dyalisis). The nursing care of this patient requires the nurse to:
Monitor for respiratory distress, which could happen from increased intrathoracic pressure from increased intraabdominal pressure as fluid enters the peritoneal space.
Monitor the patient for changes in temperature, which can indicate peritonitis.
Closely watch dialysate infuse and drain. A kink or clotting of the catheter from exudate can cause slower infusing and draining times. It can also stop the drainage.
Record the output of the dialysis and relate it to the amount infused and the total amount + or – the patient during the treatment period.
