Transcript

  • 1. Thyroid and parathyroid glands
  • 2. 1. Which nursing diagnosis takes priority for a client with hyperthyroidism?
    Imbalance nutrition: more than body requirements related to thyroid hormone excess
    Risk for impaired skin integrity related to edema, skin fragility, and poor wound healing
    Disturbed body image related to weight gain and edema
    Imbalance nutrition: less than body requirements related to thyroid hormone excess

    HORMONAL HYPO OR HYPER FUNCTION? IS MY ANSWER CORRECT?
  • 4. 1. Which nursing diagnosis takes priority for a client with hyperthyroidism?
    Imbalance nutrition: more than body requirements related to thyroid hormone excess
    Risk for impaired skin integrity related to edema, skin fragility, and poor wound healing
    Disturbed body image related to weight gain and edema
    Imbalance nutrition: less than body requirements related to thyroid hormone excess
  • 5. Rationale:
    In a client with hyperthyroidism, excessive thyroid hormone production leads to hypermetabolism and increase nutrient metabolism. These condition may result in a negative nitrogen balance, increased protein synthesis and breakdown, decrease glucose tolerance and fat mobilization and depletion.
  • 6. Next question:
  • 7. 2. The nurse should expect a client with hypothyroidism to report which of the following health concerns?
    Increase appetite and weight loss
    Puffiness of the face and hands
    Nervousness and tremors
    Enlarged thyroid gland

  • 9. 2. The nurse should expect a client with hypothyroidism to report which of the following health concerns?
    Increase appetite and weight loss
    Puffiness of the face and hands
    Nervousness and tremors
    Enlarged thyroid gland
  • 10. Hypothyroidism (myxedema) causes facial puffiness, extremity edema, and weight gain. Sign and symptoms of hyperthyroidism (graves disease) include an increase appetite, weight loss, nervousness, tremors and thyroid gland enlargement (goiter)
  • 11. Next question:
  • 12. 3. To correct a client’s long term hypothyroid condition, synthroid may be ordered. When administering the drug, the nurse should be aware that:
    The larger the dose, the more quickly the client will feel better
    The client will need to take the drug for 6 months to improve
    Hypothyroidism must be corrected slowly because the body needs time to adjust
    The time of administration and the dosage amount aren’t relevant

    The larger the dose, the more quickly the client will feel better
    The client will need to take the drug for 6 months to improve
    Hypothyroidism must be corrected slowly because the body needs time to adjust
    The time of administration and the dosage amount aren’t relevant
  • 15. Rationale:
    A hypothyroidism state must be corrected slowly because a correction made too rapidly may result to angina, arrhythmias, or myocardial infarction. The improvement of symptoms may take 2-3 weeks. The dosage amount is relevant to client’s response.
  • 16. Next question:
  • 17. 4. For a patient with Graves disease, which nursing intervention promotes comfort?
    Restricting intake of oral fluids
    Placing extra blankets on client’s bed
    Limiting intake of high carbohydrate foods
    Maintaining room temperature in the low-normal level

    Restricting intake of oral fluids
    Placing extra blankets on client’s bed
    Limiting intake of high carbohydrate foods
    Maintaining room temperature in the low-normal level
  • 20. Rationale:
    Graves disease causes sign and symptoms of hypermetabolism, such as heat intolerance, diaphoresis, excessive thirst and appetite, and weight loss. To reduce heat intolerance and diaphoresis, the nurse should keep the client’s room temperature in to low-normal range.
  • 21. Next question:
  • 22. 5. A client is being returned after subtotal thyroidectomy. Which piece of equipment is most important for the nurse to keep at the client’s bedside?
    Orange juice and hard candy
    Tracheostomy set
    Cardiac monitor and oxygen tank
    Indwelling catheter tray

    Orange juice and hard candy
    Tracheostomy set
    Cardiac monitor and oxygen tank
    Indwelling catheter tray
  • 25. Rationale:
    After subtotal thyroidectomy, swelling of the surgical site ( the tracheal area) may obstruct the airway. Therefore tracheostomy set should be at the bedside in case of respiratory emergency.
  • 26. Next question:
  • 27. 6. What are the functions of T3 and T4?
    Retention of salt and water
    Maintenance of blood sugar
    Maintenance of blood pressure
    Regulation of energy production

  • 30. Next question:
  • 31. Which of the following statements by the patient with hypothyroidism indicates to the nurse that the plan of care has been effective?
    “I feel so much better now that my energy is returning”
    “I'm really glad the diarrhea has stop”
    “I’m so glad I won’t have to take medication for very long”

    Related to bone demineralization resulting in pathologic fractures
    Related to exhaustion secondary to accelerated metabolic rate
    Related to edema and dry skin secondary to fluid infiltration into the interstitial spaces
    Related to tetany secondary to decrease serum calcium level

  • 52. Rationale:
    Poorly controlled hyperparathyroidism may cause elevated serum calcium level. This, in turn may diminish calcium store in the bones, causing bone demineralization and setting stage for pathologic fracture and risk for injury.
  • 53. Next question:
  • 54. 13. On the third day after subtotal thyroidectomy, a client exhibits muscle twitching and hyperirritability of the nervous system. When questioned, the client reports numbness and tingling of the mouth and finger tips. Suspecting a life-threatening electrolyte imbalance , the nurse notifies the surgeon immediately. Which electrolyte imbalance most commonly follows thyroid surgery?
    Hypocalcemia
