Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) requires collaborative management in the pediatric health care setting. Because of the nature of the medical diagnoses, BPD can be viewed by nurses using selected nursing diagnoses. With the pediatric client, nursing diagnoses can assist the nurse to identify system alterations, and thereby address nursing interventions most appropriate for the child. Nursing interventions are based on collaborative decision making using both medical and nursing diagnoses. This case study will identify selected nursing diagnoses useful in the care of the child with BPD and nursing interventions used to treat frequently occurring health problems
