Definition of the NANDA label
The risk of fluid volume deficit is the possibility of suffering from vascular, cellular or intracellular dehydration.
Susceptible to experiencing decreased intravascular, interstitial, and/or intracellular fluid volumes, which may compromise health.
The risk factors, NOC and NIC of the NANDA diagnosis “Risk of fluid volume deficit” are detailed below.
- Extreme age.
- Weight extremes (weight).
- Excessive loss of fluid through normal routes (diarrhea).
- Excessive fluid loss through abnormal lines (indwelling catheters).
- Situations that affect the access, intake or absorption of fluids (eg, physical immobility).
- Situations that require a large supply of fluids (hypermetabolic states).
- Lack of knowledge regarding the volume of liquids.
- Medications (diuretics).
At risk population
