00005 Risk for imbalanced body temperature

Risk for imbalanced body temperature (00005), Domain 11, Class 6 – replaced by new diagnosis, Risk for ineffective thermoregulation (00274). Revisions to this diagnosis led to the recognition that the concept of interest was thermoregulation, and the definition and risk factors were consistent with the current diagnosis, ineffective thermoregulation (00008). Therefore, the label and definition … Read more
