Abstract

A lot of complications are caused by inappropriate use of drugs and one potentially fatal complication is rhabdomyolysis. This is a case study of the care of a patient with rhabdomyolysis induced by glue sniffing, during the period between August 7 and August 18, 2003. Roy's nursing assessment was applied as an index to evaluate the patient. By way of clinical observation, interview, and compilation of medical records, the nursing problems were established as ineffective breathing pattern, fluid volume deficit, and risks of violence and addiction. After a series of conversations, active attention, and professional nursing in emergency situations, the patient learned to control his behavior and accepted treatment. We hope that this complete nursing experience can in future serve as a reference in the management of patients with rhabdomyolysis.
