Abstract

Objective: To implement the nursing process in a pregnant woman with falciparum malaria.

Method: Case study, qualitative approach, unique and intrinsic type. Conducted in the mixed unit in a county of the Brazilian Amazon in the months of May and June 2018. The primary data were obtained through anamnesis, physical examination and clinical judgment and the secondary data were extracted from the medical record to support the nursing diagnoses proposed by North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA), interventions and results as Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) and Nursing Outcome Classification (NOC) respectively, in the light of Wanda Horta's theory.

Results: Nursing diagnoses found according to basic human needs were: intolerance to activity; hyperthermia; risk of electrolyte imbalance; acute pain and ineffective peripheral tissue perfusion.

Conclusion: Standardized and individualized nursing care provided quality care and health recovery of pregnant women, preventing severe complications.
