Orthostatic hypotension leads to temporary decreased cerebral perfusion. 2. Monitor neurological status; do a neurological examination; and if symptoms of a cerebrovascular accident (CVA) occur (e.g., hemiparesis, hemiplegia, or dysphasia), call 911 and send to the er. New onset of the neurological symptoms can indicate a heart stroke. If the effect of a thrombus and your client receives treatment within 3 hours, a stroke can be reversed.
3. See treatment plans for Decreased Intracranial adaptive capacity, Risk for Injury, and Acute Confusion. 1. Check dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses bilaterally. If unable to find them, use a Doppler stethoscope and inform doctor if pulses not present. 2. Note skin color and feel heat of your skin.

Skin pallor or mottling, cool or chilly epidermis temp, or an absent pulse can sign arterial blockage, which can be an emergency that requires immediate treatment. Rubor (reddish-blue color accompanied by dependency) indicates dilated or damaged vessels. 3. Check capillary refill. 4. Note epidermis consistency and the existence of locks, ulcers, or gangrenous areas on the hip and legs or ft. Thin, shiny, dry skin with hair loss; brittle nails; and ulcerations or gangrene on feet and anterior surfaces of ft are seen in clients with arterial insufficiency. 5. Note existence of edema in extremities and rate it on the four-point scale.
6. Assess for pain in extremities, noting severity, quality, timing, and exacerbating and alleviating factors. Differentiate venous from arterial disease. In clients with venous insufficiency the pain lessens with elevation of the exercise and legs. In clients with arterial insufficiency the pain increases with elevation of the legs and exercise (Black, 1995). Some clients have both venous and arterial insufficiency.
Arterial insufficiency is associated with pain when walking (claudication) that is relieved by rest. Clients with severe arterial disease have foot pain while at rest, during the night which will keep them awake. 1. Monitor peripheral pulses. If new onset of loss of pulses with bluish, purple, or dark areas and extreme pain, inform doctor immediately.
These are symptoms of arterial blockage that can result in lack of a limb if not immediately reversed. 2. Usually do not elevate hip and legs above the level of the center. With arterial insufficiency, leg elevation decreases arterial blood circulation to the legs. 3. For early arterial insufficiency, encourage exercise such as walking or driving a fitness bicycle from 30 to 60 minutes per day.
