Ch 38 Care of PtsThe nurse is concerned that a patient who had a myocardial infarction (MI) has developed cardiogenic shock. Which findings indicate shock? Select all that apply. 1BradycardiaCorrect2Cool, diaphoretic skinCorrect3Crackles in the lung fields4Respiratory rate of 12/minCorrect5Anxiety and restlessnessIncorrect6Temperature of 100.4° FThe patient with shockhas cool, moist skin. Because of extensive tissue necrosis, the left ventricle cannot forward blood adequately, resulting in pulmonary congestion and crackles. Because of poor tissue perfusion, a change in mental status, anxiety, and restlessness are expected. All types of shock (except neurogenic) present with tachycardia, not bradycardia. Due to pulmonary congestion, a patient with cardiogenic shock typically has tachypnea. Cardiogenic shock does not present with low-grade fever; this would be more likely to occur in pericarditis. The nursing student is assisting with the care of a patient who has undergone coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Which statement by the student about the procedure indicates a need for further teaching by the supervising nurse? A patient has just returned from coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.
