encourage coughing and deep breathing every 2 hours
limit fluid intake
Numbers 1, 2, and 3 are correct.
Rationale: Applying compression stockings will assist in preventing a deep vein thrombosis. Ambulation post-surgery with a walker is done to prevent complications of immobility. Coughing and deep breathing will facilitate oxygenation of the body after receiving anesthesia. Fluid intake need not be restricted post-op and may be encouraged depending on the client’s medical history.
