The correct answer to this question is C. Maslow's hierarchy of needs is theory that was proposed by Abraham Maslow in 1943. Maslow's hierarchy of needs are studied in psychology to determine the order in which humans need certain things.
The needs from bottom to top are physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem, and self-actualization. The needs at the bottom should be fulfilled first. Pain relief is in the first tier of physiological.
The patient should be administered pain medication in order to fulfill the first need on Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Placing wrist restraints would be the next tier, safety.
The answer to this is letter B. The patient has a tendency to fall. Making the bed lower will reduce the chances that the patient will get hurt whenever he falls from the bed. It is very natural for nurses to try to instruct patients about the things that they can and cannot do but most patients will not readily follow the orders of their nurses and doctors.
This means that even if the patient is told not to get out of bed, he will most likely do what he wants. Putting the bedpan is not really necessary as this is not the only reason why the patient would like to get out of bed. At times, this may be completely unnecessary especially if the patient will not fall anyway.
Arterial blood gas test measures how much gases are in the blood. These gases consist of carbon dioxide and oxygen. To determine how much carbon dioxide and oxygen are in the bloodstream, a nurse would have to draw some blood from the patient in the radial artery.
Blood is sometimes taken from the femoral artery. This is located in the groin. The ranges for pH is 7.34 – 7.44. That would be average. If a person has a pH less than 7.34, the person’s blood is academic. If a person has a pH more than 7.45, then his or her blood is alkalemic.
If a client has arterial blood gas values with a pH of 7.30, and PaO2 of 89 mm, then the client would have respiratory acidosis.
