Posterior Pituitary Gland quiz bee

  1. 1. Posterior pituitary gland<br />
  2. 2. A client with severe head trauma sustained from a car accident is admitted to ICU. The client’s urine output suddenly rises to 200ml/hour 36 hours later, leading the nurse to suspect diabetes insipidus. Which of the following laboratory finding support the nurse’s suspicion of diabetes insipidus?<br />Above normal urine and serum osmolality level<br />Below normal urine and serum osmolality levels<br />Above normal urine osmolality level, below normal serum osmolality level<br />Below normal urine osmolality level, above normal serum osmolality level<br />

  4. 4. A client with severe head trauma sustained from a car accident is admitted to ICU. The client’s urine output suddenly rises to 200ml/hour 36 hours later, leading the nurse to suspect diabetes insipidus. Which of the following laboratory finding support the nurse’s suspicion of diabetes insipidus?<br />Above normal urine and serum osmolality level<br />Below normal urine and serum osmolality levels<br />Above normal urine osmolality level, below normal serum osmolality level<br />Below normal urine osmolality level, above normal serum osmolality level<br />
  5. 5. Rationale:<br />In diabetes insipidus, polyuria causes dilute urine resulting in below level urine osmolality level. At the same time polyuria depletes the body of water, causing dehydration that leads to above normal serum osmolality level. <br />
  6. 6. Next question:<br />
  7. 7. 2. When assessing a client with syndrome of inappropriate anti diuretic hormone (SIADH), a nurse should be aware that which of the following signs suggest that the client is experiencing complications?<br />Chvosteks signs<br />Neck vein distention<br />Weight loss<br />polyuria<br />

  9. 9. 2. When assessing a client with syndrome of inappropriate anti diuretic hormone (SIADH), a nurse should be aware that which of the following signs suggest that the client is experiencing complications?<br />Chvosteks signs<br />Neck vein distention<br />Weight loss<br />polyuria<br />
  10. 10. Rationale:<br />SIADH causes overproduction of anti diuretic hormone, which leads to fluid retention. Severe SIADH can cause such complications as fluid overload, signaled by neck vein distention. <br />
  11. 11. Next question:<br />
  12. 12. 3. Which hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland? Choose all that apply.<br />Anti diuretic hormone<br />Growth hormone<br />Lutenizing hormone<br />Oxytocin<br />calcitonin<br />

  17. 17. 4. A patient with SIADH asks the nurse why he has gain 10 pounds. Which response is best?<br />“SIADH” causes an increase in appetite. As soon as you are effectively treated, the weight should drop back to normal for you”<br />“you are retaining a lot of sodium and potassium, and that causes you to gain a lot of water weight”<br />“you have too much of a hormone in your system that causes you to retain water.”<br />“your kidneys are not working correctly, so they can’t get rid of extra water from your system”<br />
