POVEDA, Vanessa de Brito; ALVES, Juliana da Silva; SANTOS, Elaine de Freitas  and  GARCIA EMERICK MOREIRA, Alessandra. Nursing Diagnoses in Patients Undergoing Hemodialysis. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.34, pp.58-69. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective: To determine the most common nursing diagnoses in patients under hemodialysis treatment, based on the nomenclature of the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association -International (NANDA-I) 2009-2011. Method: This is a quantitative, descriptive and exploratory study, accomplished in a hemodialysis clinic in the State of São Paulo, Brazil, with a sample of 50 patients. The study was approved by the Committee of Ethics in Research of the University of Vale do Paraíba, under protocol No. H236/CEP/2009. Results: We identified 24 most frequent diagnoses, of which six were found in 100% of the sample studied; they were: impaired urinary elimination; impaired skin integrity; risk of infection; risk of ineffective renal perfusion; impaired physical mobility; and risk of electrolyte imbalance. Conclusion: Determining nursing diagnoses common to subjects submitted to hemodialysis will help nursing professionals deal with chronic renal patients care by providing tools for planning assistance.
