The nurse is collecting data from a client who is suspected of having mittelschmerz. Which finding, on data collection, is most closely associated with this disorder?
The nurse instructs the unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP) assigned to care for an older adult client to place an extra blanket in the client's room. The nurse provides this instruction because the older adult is less able to regulate hot and cold body changes as a result of alterations in the activity of which gland?
2 Functions of the skin include protection, sensory reception, homeostasis, and temperature regulation. The skin helps regulate the body temperature in two ways, by dilation and constriction of blood vessels and by the activity of the sweat glands. As aging progresses, alterations in sweat gland activity make the glands less effective in temperature regulation, so the aging person is less able to regulate hot and cold body changes. The parotid glands are responsible for the drainage of saliva, which plays an important role in digestion. The pineal gland is a major site of melatonin biosynthesis. The thymus gland plays an immunological role throughout life. An older adult couple requests to room together at a long-term care facility. When some members of the staff question this, the nurse should provide which response?
