Abstract:
This descriptive study used the Diagnostic Content Validity (DCV) and the Clinical Diagnostic Validation (CDV) models proposed by Fehring (1986) to clinically identify and validate the defining characteristics for Alteration in Tissue Perfusion: Peripheral. The Peripheral Vascular Assessment Tool (PVAT) was designed as the data collection tool; the DCV of the PVAT was 0.75. Twenty subjects, 18 years old and older, were selected from a population who were admitted as in-patients in one rural southwestern hospital. Data were collected through patient interviews, independent nurse assessment, and review of medical records. The CDV score for the validated tool was 0.62. No major defining characteristics and six minor defining characteristics were clinically validated. Differences in defining characteristics were found in the subjects with arterial occlusive disease and those with venous occlusive disease. Findings are applicable to nursing practice and research.
