Question 28 1 out of 1 points A 20-year-old man has begun treatment of the psychotic symptoms of schizophrenia using olanzapine (Zyprexa). Which of the following symptoms would be categorized as a negative symptom of schizophrenia? Response Feedback : The negative symptoms of schizophrenia include flat or blunted emotions, lack of pleasure or interest in things (anhedonia), and limited speech. The positive symptoms of schizophrenia, and the most recognizable symptoms, include delusions (e.g., paranoia or distorted perceptions of other people's intentions) and hallucinations. Question 29
1 out of 1 points A 39-year-old patient who is having trouble sleeping is beginning drug treatment with zaleplon (Sonata). The nurse will be sure to ask the patient if she is taking Response Feedback : The nurse will assess for cimetidine use. Cimetidine greatly increases the level of circulating zaleplon and could cause toxic effects in the patient. Secobarbital is a barbiturate, and oxycodone and meperidine are narcotics that would not be used with lorazepam because the combinations may depress respiratory drive, create severe hypotension or bradycardia, and substantially alter level of consciousness. Question 30 1 out of 1 points A nurse is caring for a patient who is in severe pain and is receiving an opioid analgesic. Which of the following would be the nurse's priority assessments? Response Feedback : The nurse must assess the patient's pain intensity before and after administering an opioid analgesic. The respiratory rate and level of consciousness need to be assessed because respiratory depression and sedation are two adverse effects of opioid analgesics. Seizure activity, electrolytes, liver function, blood glucose level, and mental status may need to be assessed during opioid analgesic therapy related to adverse effects, but they would not be the priority assessments.
