Helen Jackson, a 63-year-old Caucasian female, arrives at the surgery center for her preoperative appointment. She is scheduled to have surgery on her left femur due to bone cancer. During preoperative screening, the nurse recognizes abnormal vital signs (HR 108, RR 24, BP 124/70 and T 98.6) and lab tests, and patient reporting not feeling like eating for a while. Preoperative teaching includes evaluating the client’s deep breathing techniques and responding to the client’s concerns about getting a pressure sore and overdosing on pain medication through a PCA pump. A week later, Ms. Jackson arrives 3 hours before her scheduled surgery. The nurse confirms the client’s NPO status and the markings on the client’s hips and takes action in response to the unsigned surgical consent form. In the Operating Room, the nurse establishes a priority diagnosis and calls a time out. In the immediate postoperative period, the nurse positions the client and documents the appearance of the surgical dressing. When Ms. Jackson is transferred to the surgical unit, the nurse first needs to calculate an IV infusion drop rate, and when an infusion pump becomes available, an IV rate in ml/hour.  ABG                                                                   Normal                                                                                   Pt ValuepH                                                                                                                                                                         7.46PaCo2                                                                                                                                                                   33HCO3                                                                                                                                                                    25O2 Saturation                                                                                                                                                       99% Electrolytes                                                                                                                                                                                              Na                                                                                                                                                                         138                  K                                                                                                                                                                            3.4Cl                                                                                                                                                                            102Total Ca                                                                                                                                                                  12Mg                                                                                                                                                                           2.5Phos                                                                                                                                                                        2.8  What clinical manifestations does the patient have?What would be the priority Nursing Diagnosis (choose one).Interpretation of Electrolyte abnormality (which electrolyte is most concerning)?What symptoms does the patient have specific to the electrolyte abnormality?What treatment would you expect based on the problem?What nursing interventions would you expect?Health Science Science Nursing NSG 252
