The environment is a vital arena that is germane to the system and its function. When patients are unable to adapt to varying environmental stressors, that influence can break through the rest of their defenses and affect patient health in an immediately negative way. It has been widely used by practitioners in nursing education practice, and administration nationally and internationally. These factors include the system variables, genetic features, and strengths and weaknesses of the system parts. As a weakness, if the model is useful to a variety of disciplines, it is not specific to nursing and thus may not differentiate the practice of nursing from that of other disciplines. Aside from giving anxiolytics to decrease the anxiety of the patient, I have to warn visiting relatives to refrain from talking about the tragedy.
The fifth concept is the stressor itself; this is any environmental energy which could possibly affect the balance of the patient. Secondary prevention relates to symptomatology following a reaction to stressors, appropriate ranking of intervention priorities, and treatment to reduce their noxious effects.
