Develop an intervention (your capstone project), as a solution to the patient, family, or population problem you’ve defined. Submit the proposed intervention to the faculty for review and approval. This solution needs to be implemented (shared) with your patient, family, or group. You are not to share your intervention with your patient, family, or group or move on to Assessment 5 before your faculty reviews/approves the solution you submit in Assessment 4. In a separate written deliverable, write a 5-7 page analysis of your intervention.
Please submit both your solution/intervention and the 5-7 page analysis to complete Assessment 4.
Introduction
In your first three assessments, you applied new knowledge and insight gleaned from the literature, from organizational data, and from direct consultation with the patient, family, or group (and perhaps with subject matter and industry experts) to your assessment of the problem. You’ve examined the problem from the perspectives of leadership, collaboration, communication, change management, policy, quality of care, patient safety, costs to the system and individual, technology, care coordination, and community resources. Now it’s time to turn your attention to proposing an intervention (your capstone project), as a solution to the problem.
Preparation
In this assessment, you’ll develop an intervention as a solution to the health problem you’ve defined. To prepare for the assessment, think about an appropriate intervention, based on your work in the preceding assessments, that will produce tangible, measurable results for the patient, family, or group. In addition, you might consider using a root cause analysis to explore the underlying reasons for a problem and as the basis for developing and implementing an action plan to address the problem. Some appropriate interventions include the following:
Creating an educational brochure.
Producing an educational voice-over PowerPoint presentation or video focusing on your topic.
Creating a teaching plan for your patient, family, or group.
Recommending work process or workflow changes addressing your topic.
Plan to spend at least 3 direct practicum hours working with the same patient, family, or group.
In addition, you may wish to complete the following:
Review the assessment instructions and scoring guide to ensure that you understand the work you will be asked to complete and how it will be assessed.
Conduct sufficient research of the scholarly and professional literature to inform your work and meet scholarly expectations for supporting evidence.
Note: Remember that you can submit all, or a portion of, your draft assessment to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version. If you plan on using this free service, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24-48 hours for receiving feedback.

· What factors will work as part of the solution and why?
· What factors will prevent you from implementing the proposed solution and why?
· Who would you need to bring into the proposed solution in order to effectively implement the solution?
· What additional resources would you need to include in your proposed solution in order to make it viable and effective? Provide justification for each resource.
· What other information do you need to gather in order to fully implement your proposed solution?
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.

Discussion:
The patient is a 22-year-old G1P1 who delivered vaginally a healthy 7 lb 8 oz boy approximately 3 hours ago with a midline episiotomy. Fundus is above the umbilicus, lochia is moderate. She has an intravenous infusion with Pitocin 20 units in her right arm. The patient is complaining of an excruciating headache, blurred vision, and epigastric pain that radiates to the upper right quadrant of her abdomen. The patient is also complaining of perineal pain. Her deep tendon reflexes are brisk, and vital signs are: T. 38.2, HR 98, RR. 18, BP 169/102, SpO² = 92%
Physical examination of the patient’s abdomen reveals a boggy uterus, massage done with the expulsion of medium to large clots and small gushes of blood from the vagina. Her right labia is swollen, bulging and firm to touch. A retaining urinary catheter was placed with a urinary output measured in the last hour is 25 mL.
Stat laboratory blood was drawn and sent including complete blood count (CBC), liver function test (LFTs), and comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP). The lab results are:
a. CBC: White cell count = 9,000 x 10³; Hemoglobin = 9.2mg/dL; Hematocrit =27.6%; platelets = 8,000 x 10³
b. LFTs: Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) = 379 IU/L; Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) = 425 IU/L; Alkaline Phosphatase (ALP) = 380
c. Comprehensive Metabolic Panel: Na = 138 mEq/L; K = 4.9 mEq/L; Calcium = 8.5 mg/dL, carbon dioxide (CO2) = 21 mmol/L; chloride (Cl) = 103 mmol/L; albumin = 4.3 g/dL, total protein = 6.0 g/dL, bilirubin = 0.1m, BUN = 25 mg/dL, Creatinine = 0.6 mg/dL
Answer and discuss the following questions with your colleagues:
What are the nurse’s priorities for this patient?
What symptoms and signs should alert the nurse to potential problems that might need immediate intervention?
What would be the best way for the nurse to respond to the patient’s condition?
What might be the significance of the patient’s perineal pain?
How would you measure the patient’s blood loss?
Explain the significance of the patient’s laboratory CBC, and LFT results.

Pediatric Case Study
Scenario history: Johnny is 6 years old, admitted late yesterday with exacerbation of asthma. Johnny has a history of asthma for 2 1/2 years. He has been admitted to the hospital exacerbation x3; no ICU admission. He was admitted due to coughing, exspiratory wheezing, runny nose and increasing shortness of breath that began shortly after a low-grade fever;
Presenting signs: Temp 100.4, HR; 112, RR; 28, 02 Sat 91%
Exspiratory wheezing, intercostals, and subcostal retractions; unable to complete a sentence without shortness of breath.
Peak flow meter- 60%.
What are the nurse’s priorities for this patient?
What symptoms and signs should alert the nurse to potential problems that might need immediate intervention?
What instructions would you give a patient in using a MDI?
What instructions would you give to perform a peak flow reading?
Johnny is unable to use a MDI, what would you suggest to the doctor to order.
What would you include in an Asthma Action Plan for Johnny?
What are B-2 Agonists and Corticosteroids commonly used in treatment of asthma?
B-2 Agonists (Bronchodilators)
Albuterol sulfate (Ventolin ®) is a short-acting beta2-agonist (bronchodilator) administered by nebulizer or spacer. This medication is used intermittently, as needed, during acute exacerbations of the disease.
Corticosteroids act by reducing swelling and mucus production in the airways. As a result, airways are less sensitive and less likely to react to triggers (Potter, 2010).The Expert Panel (2007) recommends that long-term control medications be taken on a long-term basis to achieve and maintain control of persistent asthma, and that inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are the most potent and consistently effective long-term control medication for asthma.
