Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What antidote is given if the client exhibits signs of excessive bleeding due to heparin administration secondary to treatment of thromboplebitis?

    • A.

      Phytonadione (vitamin K)

    • B.

      Protamine sulfate

    • C.

      Thrombin

    • D.

      Aspirin

    Correct Answer
    B. Protamine sulfate
    Explanation
    Protamine sulfate is the correct antidote for excessive bleeding due to heparin administration. Heparin is an anticoagulant medication used to prevent blood clots, but in some cases, it can cause excessive bleeding. Protamine sulfate is a medication that can reverse the effects of heparin by binding to it and neutralizing its anticoagulant properties. Therefore, administering protamine sulfate can help stop the bleeding and restore normal clotting function.

    Correct Answer
    D. The severity of discomfort isn’t related to the size of varicosities
    Explanation
    The severity of discomfort isn't related to the size of varicosities. This means that even if the varicose veins are large or small, the level of discomfort experienced by the client with venous insufficiency will not be affected. The discomfort is likely caused by the underlying venous insufficiency rather than the size of the varicose veins themselves.

    • A.

      Numbness

    • B.

      Paresthesia

    • C.

      Intermittent Claudication

    • D.

      Pulsation over the abdomen

    Correct Answer
    D. Pulsation over the abdomen
    Explanation
    Thromboangitis Obliterans, also known as Buerger's disease, is a rare condition that affects the blood vessels in the limbs. It is characterized by inflammation and clot formation in the small and medium-sized arteries and veins. The most common characteristic manifestation of this disease is intermittent claudication, which refers to pain and cramping in the legs during physical activity. This occurs due to the narrowing or blockage of the blood vessels, leading to reduced blood flow. Numbness and paresthesia may also occur, but pulsation over the abdomen is not associated with Thromboangitis Obliterans.

    Nurse Wating-ting is treating an overweight post-cesarean section patient with varicose veins. It is especially important that she checks for the following when assessing this patient.

    • A.

      Integrity of the incision

    • B.

      Positive homan’s sign

    • C.

      Clear lung sound

    • D.

      Bowel sounds in all four quadrants

    Correct Answer
    D. Bowel sounds in all four quadrants
    Explanation
    When assessing an overweight post-cesarean section patient with varicose veins, it is important to check for bowel sounds in all four quadrants. This is because the patient may be at a higher risk of developing postoperative ileus, a condition where the intestines become temporarily paralyzed after surgery. By checking for bowel sounds in all four quadrants, Nurse Wating-ting can ensure that the patient's intestines are functioning properly and there are no signs of obstruction or ileus.

    The nurse is teaching a client with Thromboangitis Obliterans about techniques in avoiding of being exposed to cold. Which of the following statement made by the client demonstrate understanding of the disease?

    • A.

      Wear adequate clothing during summer

    • B.

      Wear gloves when handling frozen foods

    • C.

      Wear goggles during winter

    • D.

      Attending stress management class

    Correct Answer
    B. Wear gloves when handling frozen foods
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Wear gloves when handling frozen foods." This statement demonstrates understanding of Thromboangitis Obliterans because exposure to cold temperatures can trigger symptoms and complications in this condition. Handling frozen foods without gloves can lead to cold exposure and potentially worsen the disease. Wearing gloves helps to protect the hands from cold temperatures and reduces the risk of triggering symptoms.

    The skin of a patient with Raynauds disease will turn to bluish in color as a result of:

    • A.

      Pooling of deoxygenated blood during vasospasm

    • B.

      Sudden vasoconstriction

    • C.

      Exaggerated blood reflow

    • D.

      Sudden vasodilation

    Correct Answer
    A. Pooling of deoxygenated blood during vasospasm
    Explanation
    The bluish color of the skin in a patient with Raynaud's disease is due to the pooling of deoxygenated blood during vasospasm. Raynaud's disease is characterized by episodes of vasospasm, where the blood vessels in the fingers and toes constrict, leading to reduced blood flow. This constriction causes a decrease in oxygen supply to the affected area, resulting in the bluish discoloration of the skin. The pooling of deoxygenated blood occurs because the narrowed blood vessels prevent proper circulation, leading to the accumulation of stagnant blood.

    Which of the following health management will be taught by the nurse to a patient who has a Raynauds disease?

    • A.

      Avoid consuming dark colored foods

    • C.

      Intake of vasodilator drugs

    • D.

      Refraining from going to warm places

    Correct Answer
    B. Importance of avoiding emotional stress
    Explanation
    Raynaud's disease is a condition in which the blood vessels in the fingers and toes spasm, causing them to turn white or blue. Emotional stress can trigger these spasms, so it is important for patients with Raynaud's disease to avoid emotional stress as much as possible. This can help prevent episodes of symptoms and manage the condition effectively.

By performing this test, the nurse can assess for tenderness in the calf muscle and determine if there is a blood clot present. This information can help guide further assessment and treatment for Mrs. Rosita's condition.
