MARTINEZ-LOPEZ, M. A.; PEREZ-CONSTANTINO, M.  y  MONTELONGO-MENESES, P. P.. Nursing Care Process on an infant suffering from pneumonia based on the Marjory Gordon Functional Patterns. Enferm. univ [online]. 2014, vol.11, n.1, pp.36-43. ISSN 2395-8421.

The Nursing Attention Process (NAP) aims to identify altered needs, and correct, maintain and rehabilitate the patient through the use of knowledge and procedures, so that he/she can be healthy as soon as possible. In this study, the patient was an infant suffering from pneumonia. Currently, pneumonia is the world's principal cause of death in children younger than 5 years old. Indeed, consequences of not treating this illness on time include acute respiratory arrest, lung abscesses, and congestive cardiac insufficiency. Here, is when the nursing staff has a crucial role at maintaining the permeability and stability of the respiratory airways of these patients. Priority needs were identified through the 11 functional pattern of Marjory Gordon. An individualized care plan was designed and aimed to the maintenance of the child's respiratory patterns. NANDA, NIC and NOC taxonomies were used. Satisfactory results included a decrease in the respiratory difficulty, an improvement in the airway permeability, the maintenance of the cardiac rate, and the improvement of sleep time. However, due to a 6 month previous malnutrition, and the complications of this illness, unfortunately this patient died.
