Feedback:
Assisting the patient to cough and deep breathe will increase lung capacity and assist in fighting the infection. Promoting hand hygiene is important but will not increase lung capacity. Increasing rest will assist in recovery but will not increase lung capacity. Frequent repositioning does not increase lung capacity.
