For a patient with congestive heart failure, the nurse explains the idea of perfusion. Which assessment results lend credence to this idea?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The presence of paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea (PND) supports the concept of perfusion in a client diagnosed with congestive heart failure (CHF). PND is a condition where the client experiences shortness of breath and coughing spells during sleep, usually several hours after lying down. This is due to the accumulation of fluid in the lungs, which is a common complication of CHF. PND occurs as a result of inadequate perfusion, which is the delivery of blood to the tissues and organs of the body.

The client should be advised to report any new or worsening symptoms immediately to the healthcare provider.
