Results Displayed Feedback Question 1 1 out of 1 points A postsurgical patient has been provided with a morphine patient-controlled analgesic (PCA) but has expressed her reluctance to use it for fear of becoming addicted. How can the nurse best respond to this patient's concerns? Response Feedback : Addiction to opioids is a rare occurrence among hospital patients who do not have a history of drug abuse.

Question 2 1 out of 1 points A nurse is caring for a patient who has been admitted with acute cocaine intoxication.

vasoconstriction. Question 3 1 out of 1 points A nurse works in a sleep disorder clinic and is responsible for administering medications to the patients. Which of the following patients would be most likely to receive zaleplon (Sonata)? Response Feedback : The nurse will most likely administer the zaleplon to the 35-year-old man who is having difficulty falling asleep, but once asleep can stay asleep. Zolpidem would most likely be administered to the 20-year-old who will take a sleep aid only once a week. Eszopiclone (Lunesta) will be given to the 52-year-old woman who needs to fall asleep quickly and has trouble staying asleep. The 46-year-old man will likely receive trazodone (Desyrel). This drug is given as a sleep aid for a patient who is taking an antidepressant. Question 4 1 out of 1 points A 59-year-old woman has presented to a clinic requesting a prescription for lorazepam (Ativan) in order to treat her recurrent anxiety. Her care provider, however, believes that a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) would be more appropriate. What advantage do SSRIs have over benzodiazepines in the treatment of anxiety? Response Feedback : SSRIs are generally well tolerated with few adverse effects. Unlike the benzodiazepines, they do not cause diminished alertness or ataxia.

    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.
