A 50-year-old man with a diagnosis of severe head injury recently received mannitol therapy to reduce brain edema. What should the nurse do after administering the therapy?

1 Answer:

Hello Pinta,

Severe head injury (CKB) is a term to describe a severe injury to the head. Severe head injury is determined based on an assessment called the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). The lowest GCS value is 3 and the highest is 15. In CKB, the value is 3-8.

The nurse's task for patients experiencing CKB is to provide nursing care, accompany doctors to carry out treatment, follow doctor's instructions in administering drugs, monitor vital signs and complaints (if any) periodically, record and report them. It is important to know the symptoms that indicate improvement or worsening in the patient so that they can be reported immediately if there are changes. If there is a change, it should be reported immediately for further therapy.

Regards,

dr. Mega
