Fluid management in the patients with chronic heart conditions may have restricted fluid intake to prevent edema and extra fluids from going to the lungs. It is very important to ask your doctor about any fluid restrictions. For those on a fluid restriction or have chronic heart condition, it is a very good practice to weigh yourself every morning before you have breakfast. Your body weight is only one type of measure nurses and doctors look at to see if there are any extra fluid on board.
The medical equipment including hospital bed, air mattress, suctioning machine, oxygen concentrator, back up oxygen cylinders, IV stand for Feeding tube; blood pressure monitoring and pulse oximeters. Enayati can organize it all for you.

changes in body composition with aging may influence drug metabolism. As we age, we increase our body fat composition and decrease our lean body mass. Increase of body fat may increase that of fat soluble drugs such as Diazepam. Sometimes that causes the patient to be very drowsy. Decrease in lean body mass and body water reduces the volume of distribution of water-soluble drugs ex. Digoxin. It is very important that medication management in the elderly be followed up with a doctor on a regular basis to detect any changes needed.
Most stroke survivors find that remembering old information from before their stroke remains easy, while learning new information is difficult. Memory difficulties may also contribute to difficulties in problem-solving and learning new ideas

Depending on what is required and how much benefit you would like to achieve. We would welcome your caregiver to attend our class, and buddy up with another nurse in the field to look after several patients to get practical skills, and then we do follow-up visits in your home. The ideal situation is we do a combination
of classroom and practical sessions. Your caregiver will be assigned a trainor, and can call the trainor for any questions at any time during the first 8 weeks.
