[Type text] Morgan Mathison Chapter 48 NCLEX 1. A characteristic common to all hormones is that they influence cellular activity of specific target   tissues . 2. A patient is receiving radiation therapy for cancer of the kidney. The nurse monitors the patient for  signs and symptoms of damage to the adrenal gland . 3. A patient has a serum sodium level of 152 mEq/L. They normal hormonal response to this situation  is release of ADH . 4. All cells in the body are believed to have intracellular receptors for thyroid hormone . 5. When obtaining subjective data from a patient during assessment of the endocrine system, the nurse  asks specifically about energy level . 6. An appropriate technique to use during physical assessment of the thyroid gland is having the   patient swallow water during inspection and palpation of the gland . 7. Endocrine disorders often go unrecognized in the older adult because symptoms are often attributed   to aging . 8.
