Transcript

  • 1. Posterior pituitary gland
  • 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?
    Above normal urine and serum osmolality level
    Below normal urine and serum osmolality levels
    Above normal urine osmolality level, below normal serum osmolality level
    Below normal urine osmolality level, above normal serum osmolality level

    HORMONAL HYPO OR HYPER FUNCTION? IS MY ANSWER CORRECT?
  • 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?
    Above normal urine and serum osmolality level
    Below normal urine and serum osmolality levels
    Above normal urine osmolality level, below normal serum osmolality level
    Below normal urine osmolality level, above normal serum osmolality level
  • 5. Rationale:
    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.
  • 6. Next question:
  • 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?
    Chvosteks signs
    Neck vein distention
    Weight loss
    polyuria

  • 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?
    Chvosteks signs
    Neck vein distention
    Weight loss
    polyuria
  • 10. Rationale:
    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.
  • 11. Next question:
  • 12. 3. Which hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland? Choose all that apply.
    Anti diuretic hormone
    Growth hormone
    Lutenizing hormone
    Oxytocin
    calcitonin

  • 14. 3. Which hormone is secreted by the pituitary gland? Choose all that apply.
    Anti diuretic hormone
    Growth hormone
    Lutenizing hormone
    Oxytocin
    calcitonin
  • 15. Rationale:
    Posterior pituitary gland secretes only antidiuretic and oxytocin hormone
  • 16. Next question:
  • 17. 4. A patient with SIADH asks the nurse why he has gain 10 pounds. Which response is best?
    “SIADH” causes an increase in appetite. As soon as you are effectively treated, the weight should drop back to normal for you”
    “you are retaining a lot of sodium and potassium, and that causes you to gain a lot of water weight”
    “you have too much of a hormone in your system that causes you to retain water.”
    “your kidneys are not working correctly, so they can’t get rid of extra water from your system”

  • 20. Next question:
  • 21. 5. Which assessment finding should the nurse expect to see in the patient with uncontrollable diabetes insipidus? Choose all that apply.
    Edema
    Polyuria
    Heat intolerance
    Diarrhea
    Polydipsia
    Dehydration

  • 24. Next question:
  • 25. 6. Which action by the nurse is most important following hypophysectomy?
    Performing a routine neurological assessment
    Encouraging the patient to cough and breathe deeply
    Monitoring for tracheal edema
    Assisting with use of an incentive spirometer for deep inhalation

  • 28. Next question:
  • 29. 7. A client had suffered a closed head injury after vehicular accident. The client’s urinary output has been 2000 to 4000 ml/day. A secondary diabetes insipidus has been made. A medication intranasal route has been ordered for treatment of DI. What would that be?
