He client who has been treated for Crohn's disease for 20 years
Clients over age 50 who have a history of inflammatory bowel disease are at risk for colon cancer. The client who smokes is at high risk for lung cancer. While the exact cause is not always known, other risk factors for colon cancer are a diet high in animal fats, including a large amount of red meat and fatty foods with low fiber, and the presence of colon cancer in a first-generation relative
Contraindicated means that the medication should not be taken as it can aggravate the condition of the patient. In this case, the answers are A and D. A should not be taken because it can cause the upper GI tract to become inflamed which can then further cause complications with the patient’s gastritis.
Furosemide, on the other hand, is another medication that should be taken by people who need to prevent their bodies from taking in salt. This can be used by people who are suffering from fluid retention but this should not be taken by people who are suffering from different conditions such as liver disease or kidney disorder.
D is the answer to this question. If the question would be analyzed, it will be obvious that there are not enough details that are provided for the nurse to assess what is wrong with the patient’s leg. It only says that the leg is warmer which can be an indication of almost anything.
Since this may seem unusual, this is something that the physician should know so that the proper treatments and actions can be done. There is a possibility that the warmer leg is actually desired in order to improve the healing of the leg. Once again, there is not enough information about this to know for sure.
The correct answer to this question is D.
Digoxin toxicity causes hyperkalemia, or high potassium. The sodium/potassium ATPase pump normally causes sodium to leave cells and potassium to enter cells. Blocking this mechanism results in higher serum potassium levels. In states of hypokalemia, or low potassium, digoxin toxicity is actually worsened because digoxin normally binds to the ATPase pump on the same site as potassium.
When potassium levels are low, digoxin can more easily bind to the ATPase pump, exerting the inhibitory effects. The treatment for hyperkalemia causing ECG changes is usually intravenous calcium administration; however, in the setting of digoxin toxicity and hyperkalemia, giving IV calcium may be potentially fatal.
Option B is the right answer.
Measuring the extremity best method for evaluating the amount of peripheral edema.
Weighing the client daily is not a good way to evaluate the amount of peripheral edema.
Measuring the intake and output will not evaluate the amount of peripheral edema.
Checking for pitting edema is a good way to evaluate peripheral edema but it is not the best method for evaluating the amount of peripheral edema.
The best position for after a surgical repair of this kind is an abduction. For the uninformed, this is when a limb is kept away from the midline of the body. This will help keep the prosthetics from slipping out of place by keeping a little pressure on them. When hips and knees are replaced, they are often replaced by metal pieces, which can come loose after surgery if the patient isn’t resting properly.
Though it doesn’t happen often nowadays, these positions help prevent what could happen if the patient were not to be careful. Or, at least, mitigate the results.
This term in this situation does not apply to the situation when someone is taken away by force, usually from parents or friends by a stranger or the government. (Medical abduction is a term in that sense, but not for this question.)
