Nursing Care Plan – Ineffective tissue perfusion related to vasoconstriction of blood vessels

Definition

Decrease in oxygen resulting in the failure to nourish the tissues at the capillary level. (Tissue perfusion problems can exist without decreased cardiac output; however, there may be a relationship between cardiac output and tissue perfusion)

Related Factors

  • Interruption of Flow – arterial, venous
  • Exchange Problems
  • Hypervolemia, hypovolemia
  • Mechanical reduction of venous and/or arterial blood flow
  • Decreased Hb concentration in blood
  • Altered affinity of hemoglobin for O2; enzyme poisoning
  • Impaired transport of the O2 across alveolar and/or capillary membrane
  • Mismatch of ventilation with the blood flow
  • Hypoventilation
