|Title:||Nursing Care of People with Vascular and Lymphatic Disorders||Contributor(s):||Bunker, Naomi (author); Fagan, Anthea (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/15065||Abstract:||The main processes that interfere with peripheral blood flow and that of lymphatic fluid include constriction, obstruction, inflammation and vasospasm. These conditions lead to disorders of blood pressure regulation, peripheral artery function, aortic structure, venous circulation and lymphatic circulation. A holistic approach is important when caring for people with disorders of the vascular and lymphatic systems. The focus of care is on teaching long-term care measures, pain relief, improving peripheral blood and lymphatic circulation, preventing tissues damage and promoting healing. The prescribed treatment may have emotional, social and economic effects on the person and family.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking for Person-Centred Care, v.2, p. 1086-1139||Publisher:||Pearson Australia||Place of Publication:||Frenchs Forest, Australia||ISBN:||9781442562028
