      Whatever prescription says

    • D.

      2

    Correct Answer
    B. 1
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1 because when a diabetic patient with AMS (Altered Mental Status) is given oral glucose, it is important to administer it cautiously. Giving too much glucose can cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels, which can further worsen the patient's AMS. Therefore, it is recommended to administer only one dose of oral glucose to prevent any complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is the minimum systolic BP a patient must have in order to be assisted with his/her nitroglycerine?

    • A.

      90 mmHg

    • B.

      110 mmHg

    • C.

      100 mmHg

    • D.

      120 mmHg

    Correct Answer
    D. 120 mmHg
    Explanation
    Nitroglycerine is a medication used to treat angina, a condition characterized by chest pain due to reduced blood flow to the heart. Nitroglycerine works by dilating the blood vessels, which helps to increase blood flow and relieve chest pain. However, nitroglycerine can cause a drop in blood pressure, so it is contraindicated in patients with low blood pressure. Therefore, the minimum systolic blood pressure a patient must have in order to be assisted with nitroglycerine is 120 mmHg, as this indicates that the patient has a relatively normal blood pressure and can safely tolerate the medication.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A patient may not be given nitro , per standing order, if they have taken an erectile dysfunction drug within the past:

    • A.

      72 days

    • B.

      3 days

    • C.

      48 hours

    • D.

      24 hours

    Correct Answer
    B. 3 days
    Explanation
    Nitro is a medication used to treat chest pain or angina by relaxing and widening blood vessels. It can cause a dangerous drop in blood pressure when combined with erectile dysfunction drugs such as Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, patients should not be given nitro if they have taken an erectile dysfunction drug within the past 3 days to avoid potential complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    After administering one dose of nitro, you should re-check the blood pressure within __ minutes.

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      2

    • D.

      15

    Correct Answer
    C. 2
    Explanation
    After administering one dose of nitro, it is recommended to re-check the blood pressure within 2 minutes. This is because nitroglycerin, commonly referred to as nitro, is a medication used to treat angina (chest pain) by relaxing and widening blood vessels, which helps to improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure. By re-checking the blood pressure within 2 minutes, healthcare providers can assess the effectiveness of the medication and make any necessary adjustments to the dosage or treatment plan.

  • 6. 

    What is the dosage for administration of aspirin in the NYS Adult Cardiac-related problem protocol?

    • A.

      4 mg

    • B.

      81 mg

    • C.

      324 mg

    • D.

      162 mg

    Correct Answer
    C. 324 mg
    Explanation
    The correct dosage for administration of aspirin in the NYS Adult Cardiac-related problem protocol is 324 mg. This dosage is commonly recommended for patients experiencing cardiac issues, as it helps to prevent blood clot formation and reduce the risk of heart attacks. The other options of 4 mg, 81 mg, and 162 mg are not typically used for this purpose and may not provide the desired therapeutic effect.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Each dose of nitroglycerine shall be given no less than __ minutes after the previous dose.

    • A.

      Whatever the patient's prescription says.

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      2

    • D.

      5

    Correct Answer
    D. 5
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 5 because each dose of nitroglycerine should be given no less than 5 minutes after the previous dose. This is to ensure that the medication has enough time to take effect and that the patient does not experience any adverse reactions or overdose. Following the prescribed time interval helps maintain the effectiveness and safety of the medication.

    The Nebulized Albuterol special consideration protocol applies to patients who are between the ages of one and 65 years old. This means that patients who are younger than one or older than 65 years old would not fall into this protocol. The protocol is specifically designed for individuals within this age range to ensure appropriate use and effectiveness of Nebulized Albuterol treatment.

    • C.

      1

    • D.

      Until the dyspnea is 0/10

    Correct Answer
    B. 2
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2. This means that there is a specific maximum limit to the total doses of albuterol that can be administered per standing order. The standing order likely provides a specific number of doses that can be given, and the maximum is set at 2. This indicates that there is a limit to the amount of albuterol that can be administered, and it cannot exceed 2 doses.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What is the flow rate, in LPM, that the nebulizer should be set to in order to administer albuterol?

    • A.

      12-15

    • B.

      2-6

    • C.

      4-6

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    C. 4-6
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4-6. This range indicates the flow rate, in liters per minute (LPM), that the nebulizer should be set to in order to administer albuterol. It is important to have the correct flow rate to ensure that the medication is delivered effectively to the patient's airways.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    When assessing pronator drift ( arm drift) in a patient suspected of having a CVA, how long must the patient hold their arms out for ( with eyes closed)?

    • A.

      30 seconds

    • B.

      10 seconds

    • C.

      One minute

    • D.

      5 seconds

    Correct Answer
    B. 10 seconds
    Explanation
    When assessing pronator drift in a patient suspected of having a CVA, the patient must hold their arms out for 10 seconds with their eyes closed. This is the appropriate duration to observe any abnormal pronation or drift of the arm, which can indicate a stroke or cerebral vascular accident (CVA). Holding the arms out for a shorter duration may not provide enough time to detect any abnormalities, while holding them out for longer may cause fatigue and affect the accuracy of the assessment.

      20,20,20

    Correct Answer
    D. 20,20,20
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 20,20,20. According to the Chemical Burns protocol, if liquid chemical is spilled onto the skin, it should be flushed for at least 20 minutes. If dry powder is spilled onto the skin, it should also be flushed for at least 20 minutes. If the eye is contaminated, it should be flushed for at least 20 minutes as well.

  • 15. 

    What is the flow, in LPM, that the non-rebreather must be set to in order to administer oxygen to a patient in respiratory distress?

    • A.

      4-6

    • B.

      6

    • C.

      12-15

    • D.

      No less than 15

    Correct Answer
    C. 12-15
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 12-15. This flow rate in liters per minute (LPM) is necessary to provide sufficient oxygen to a patient in respiratory distress. A non-rebreather mask is a device used to deliver high concentrations of oxygen and is commonly used in emergency situations. The flow rate of 12-15 LPM ensures that an adequate amount of oxygen is supplied to the patient, helping to improve their breathing and oxygenation levels.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    What is the flow, in LPM, that the nasal cannula must be set to when administering oxygen to a patient?

      4-6

    • C.

      6

    • D.

      12-15

    Correct Answer
    C. 6
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 6. When administering oxygen to a patient using a nasal cannula, the flow rate should be set to 6 liters per minute (LPM). This is the standard flow rate for a nasal cannula and provides a sufficient amount of oxygen for the patient's needs.
