Question 2 0 out of 1 points A 60-year-old African-American man lives with a number of chronic health problems.

Question 3 0 out of 1 points Which of the following statements best defines how a chemical becomes termed a drug?

Response Feedback: True allergic reactions include formation of rash or hives, itching, redness, swelling, difficulty breathing, and anaphylactic shock. Nausea and vomiting, however, are adverse effects of drug therapy. Similarly, an unsafe drop in blood pressure and gastric bleeding from aspirin use are adverse drug effects, not allergic reactions. Question 5 1 out of 1 points In light of her recent high blood pressure readings, a patient has been started on a thiazide diuretic and metoprolol (Lopressor), which is a beta-adrenergic blocker. What is the most likely rationale for using two medications to address the patient's hypertension? Response Feedback: A synergistic effect occurs when two or more “unlike” drugs (in terms of therapeutic effect or mechanism of action) are used together to produce a combined effect, and the outcome is a drug effect greater than either drug's activity alone. As a result, the patient's hypertension may be better treated than with a single drug. This does not necessarily reduce the risk of adverse reactions or increase compliance with the regimen. Question 6 1 out of 1 points Which of the following affects drug distribution throughout the body? Response Feedback: Both protein binding and altered pH of extracellular fluids affect drug distribution. The presence of food in the gastrointestinal tract affects drug absorption, whereas an increase in hepatic enzymes affects drug metabolism. High blood levels are not known to affect drug pharmacokinetics.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
