1 Ineffective Airway Clearance

Mucus is produced at all times by the membranes lining the air passages. When the membranes are irritated or inflamed, excess mucus is
produced and it will retain in tracheobronchial tree. The inflammation and increased in secretions block the airways making it difficult for the
person to maintain a patent airway. In order to expel excessive secretions, cough reflex will be stimulated. An increased in RR will also be
expected as a compensatory mechanism of the body due to obstructed airways.

2 Impaired Gas Exchange

The exchange in oxygenation and carbon dioxide gases is impeded due to the obstruction caused by the accumulation of bronchial secretions in
the alveoli. Oxygen cannot diffuse easily.

3 Hyperthermia
A person experiences hyperthermia due to the inflammatory process wherein the body tries to compensate and adapt to the dse. condition. As a
defense mechanism, the body produces host inflammatory cells causing fever. Interluekin-1 function as a pyrogens that acts on the
hypothalamus. 1L-1 act as a hormone where it is carried by the inflammation site of production to the CNS, where it acts directly on the
hypothalamic thermal control center, thus elevating the thermal set point.

5 Risk for Infection

Immuno-suppression due to decrease in hemoglobin, leukopenia, and suppress inflammatory response gives a greater opportunity for
pathogenic bacteria to invade and inoculate in a specific body part of a susceptible human body. Thus, leading to a further damage or infection.

6 Risk for Imbalanced Nutrition

A disruption in the mucosal barrier causes gastric acid to come into contact with gastric tissues and damage them causing irritation or
inflammation. This leads to alteration of the mucosal barrier impairing the absorption process with in the stomach and putting the patient at
high risk for imbalance nutrition less than body requirements.
