This means these groups of patients need special support from the nursing professionals and measures to relieve these pains as soon as possible, at least in order to decrease these feelings. In order to be able to handle and manage these cases appropriately in the Emergency Department setting the nurses must be able to critically analyse the signs and symptoms of these patients on presentation. It is also expected that the nursing staff must be able to assess these patients in a structured manner in the least possible time frame since the risks associated with adult patients presenting with chest pain may be enormous. In some cases rapid and timely institution of interventions may impact the outcomes of care very favourably, while failure to stratify these risks and to appropriately assess these patients may lead to a defective and ineffective care plan leading to serious morbidity and mortality. In fact current research evidence suggests that nurses should be trained to acquire skills in appropriately assessing a patient and then reaching a provisional diagnosis that can be ruled out or supported by point of care protocols such as C-Troponin, CK-MB, and Pro-BNP so legitimate care may be instituted at the earliest. In this assignment, a problem-solving approach will be elicited in the context if emergency nursing care delivered to a group of patients with central chest pain during a recent placement of this writer, where nursing skills of assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation and documentation of care will be demonstrated (Hamer and McCallin, 2006). Moreover this account will also demonstrate how critical the nursing communication skill becomes in delivering an effective, standard, and competent care to these patients while working independently or through interprofessional collaboration. Throughout this assignment, there will be demonstration of the process of nursing diagnosis and management

Nevertheless, efficiency of its application in patient care still needs to be continuously evaluated and monitored. Thus, review of relevant studies and previous researches are presented in this paper to create a collaborated idea of pain management in post-cardiac surgery patients, its application in nursing care, and suggested strategies to improve future nursing care practice.
The best strategy to employ is to empower the practitioners caring for the patients with the recommended knowledge, competence, and skills in order to recognize and effectively manage them. Acute illness courses offer most healthcare practitioners with various experiences that assist in promoting opportunities for the learning students to improve their skills and knowledge in caring for the vulnerable patients.
There are various sources of pain: nociceptive and neuropathic pain. In nociceptive pain, the nervous system is working well and the body tells the brain that there is a source of pain, such as an injury or a cut; in neuropathic pain, the nervous system is not working properly because there may be no apparent source of pain, but the body is still telling the brain that an injury is present.
It is considered to be one of the most ambitious projects undertaken by the Swiss government, since it comprises of the longest running railway line of approximately 57 kms travelling through the Swiss Alps. The tunnel is referred to as "base tunnel" since it crosses the base level of the Alpine mountain range, i.e.
The frequency of the symptom has not made things any easier where accurate diagnosis is concerned. The range of diagnoses varies from simple muscle strain to life-threatening illnesses like aortic aneurysm and myocardial infarction. Evaluating the cause is the first step towards management.
Asthma is a prominent cause of impaired quality of life, use of primary health care, and mortality, and has economic ramifications through widespread prescription drug use and hospital admissions (Anderson et al., 2007). Risk factors for asthma in adults include female gender, poor lung function, atopy, nasal allergy, obesity, parental asthma, respiratory infections in early life, and high-risk occupations (Anto et al., 2010).
However, behavioral approaches to pain have brought significant observations in the examining acute and chronic pain. Therefore, writing about pain and its relationship with behaviorism is necessitated by the urgency to trace how chronic pain affects a person.
It is a major health care problem due to the largely held belief that a highly painful death is inescapable in cancer which contributes to the patients’ anxiety. Such misconceptions, besides giving rise to an enhanced sense of
