Question 14Type: MCSAA patient is scheduled to undergo a laparoscopic gynecologic procedure. Which statement by the patient indicates to the nurse a need for further education about the procedure? 1. “I can expect to go home a few hours after the procedure.”2. “I might experience some abdominal pain after the procedure.”3. “Walking may help reduce my postprocedure pain.”4. “I should report shoulder pain, as it might signal a complication.”Correct Answer: Rationale 1: Laparoscopic procedures are often completed on an outpatient basis unless complications arise.Rationale 2: Abdominal pain will be present due to the invasiveness of the surgical procedure.Rationale 3: The greatest amount of postprocedure pain is often associated with the carbon dioxide gas instilled into the abdomen. Walking helps to dissipate this gas.Rationale 4: The presence of shoulder pain is anticipated after laparoscopic procedures. The discomfort is a result of the carbon dioxide injected into the abdominal cavity to promote visualization during the procedure. 4 Global Rationale: Cognitive Level: Analyzing Client Need: Physiological Integrity Client Need Sub: Physiological Adaptation Nursing/Integrated Concepts: Nursing Process: Evaluation Learning Outcome: 41-4 Question 15Type: MCMAA patient is preparing to be discharged to home after a total hysterectomy.
