    A patient you are assigned is dizzy, nauseous, and diaphoretic. This could be symptoms of

    • A.

      Hypertension

    • B.

      Hypotension

    Correct Answer
    B. Hypotension
    Explanation
    The patient's symptoms of dizziness, nausea, and diaphoresis are indicative of hypotension, which is low blood pressure. Hypotension can cause a decrease in blood flow to the brain, leading to dizziness. Nausea can occur due to inadequate blood supply to the digestive system, and diaphoresis is the body's response to compensate for low blood pressure. Hypertension, on the other hand, is high blood pressure and does not typically present with these symptoms. Therefore, the correct answer is hypotension.

    • D.

      95%-100%

    Correct Answer
    B. 92%-100%
    Explanation
    Pulse oximetry measures the oxygen saturation level in the blood. A normal range for pulse oximetry is considered to be 92%-100%. This means that the blood is adequately oxygenated, with a higher percentage indicating better oxygen saturation.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    A pulse oximety of 79% would be life threatening

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A pulse oximetry reading of 79% indicates that the oxygen saturation level in the blood is dangerously low. Normal oxygen saturation levels are typically above 95%. When the oxygen saturation drops below 90%, it can lead to hypoxemia, which is a condition where the body tissues do not receive enough oxygen. Hypoxemia can be life-threatening and may result in organ damage or failure if not promptly treated. Therefore, a pulse oximetry reading of 79% would indeed be considered life-threatening.
