    The nurse administers medications by various routes of delivery. The nurse recognizes which route of administration as requiring higher dosages of drugs to achieve a therapeutic effect?

    • A.

      Intravenous route

    • B.

      Oral route

    • C.

      Rectal route

    • D.

      Sublingual route

    Correct Answer
    B. Oral route
    Explanation
    The oral route of administration requires higher dosages of drugs to achieve a therapeutic effect. This is because the drugs taken orally have to pass through the digestive system, where they may undergo metabolism and degradation before being absorbed into the bloodstream. Therefore, a higher dosage is needed to compensate for the potential loss of drug efficacy during the absorption process. In contrast, drugs administered intravenously, rectally, or sublingually bypass the digestive system and are directly absorbed into the bloodstream, resulting in a more immediate and efficient drug delivery.

    • B.

      On top of the tongue

    • C.

      At the back of the throat

    • D.

      In the space between the cheek and the gum

    Correct Answer
    A. Under the tongue
    Explanation
    The nurse instructs the patient to place the sublingual nitroglycerin tablet under the tongue. This is because sublingual administration involves placing medication under the tongue, where it can dissolve and be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Placing the tablet on top of the tongue, at the back of the throat, or in the space between the cheek and the gum would not allow for proper absorption of the medication.

    The nurse administers medications by various routes of delivery. The nurse recognizes which route of administration as requiring higher dosages of drugs to achieve a therapeutic effect?

    • A.

      Intravenous Route

    • B.

      Rectal route

    • C.

      Oral route

    • D.

      Sublingual route

    Correct Answer
    C. Oral route
    Explanation
    The oral route of administration requires higher dosages of drugs to achieve a therapeutic effect compared to other routes. This is because the drugs taken orally have to pass through the gastrointestinal system, where they may undergo metabolism and be partially absorbed or eliminated before reaching the bloodstream. Therefore, a higher dosage is needed to compensate for the potential loss of drug efficacy during this process.

In the context of poverty, it involves providing support and assistance to individuals or communities who are already living in poverty, with the aim of improving their living conditions and helping them escape the cycle of poverty. This can include measures such as social welfare programs, job training, and access to education and healthcare.

This is important because patients who are facing the end of their life may experience feelings of sadness, anxiety, or depression. By providing diversions, such as engaging in activities or conversations that bring joy or distraction, the nurse can help improve the patient's emotional well-being and overall quality of life during this difficult time.
