and substantially alter level of consciousness. Question 29 1 out of 1 points A nurse is talking to an 18-year-old patient who has had a seizure disorder since she was 10 years old and is taking phenytoin (Dilantin). The nurse should suggest that she take which of the following? Respo nse Feedb ack: Long-term phenytoin therapy is associated with folate deficiency. Folic acid and phenytoin are structurally similar and thought to compete with each other for the same receptors. A deficiency in folic acid in a pregnant woman can cause birth defects. Potassium, iron, and vitamin C do not compete with phenytoin nor are they directly affected by phenytoin. Question 30

1 out of 1 points A nurse is assigned to a patient who is taking lithium. Which of the following drug serum levels would indicate that the patient is at risk for adverse effects of the drug? Respo nse Feedb ack: The therapeutic range for lithium is 0.6 to 1.2 mEq/L. A level of 0.3 mEq/L would not be in the therapeutic range and would therefore not produce a therapeutic response. Levels of 0.6 and 1.2 mEq/L would be within the therapeutic range and would not be expected to produce adverse effects. A level of 1.7 mEq/L would be a high level and place the patient at risk for adverse effects or overdose.

    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.
