Response Feedback: Natural testosterone undergoes a high first-pass effect and is therefore not used orally. The form of testosterone that is used orally is a synthetic androgen that is less extensively metabolized and has a longer half-life than natural testosterones. Natural testosterone does not pose a higher risk of gynecomastia.Question 6 1 out of 1 pointsA woman is receiving prolonged drug therapy during her complicated pregnancy, and it may pose a risk to both the mother and the fetus. The primary care physician has made dosage adjustments to minimize adverse effects and prevent toxicity. The nurse should make sureResponse Feedback: If prolonged drug use is necessary and poses a risk to the woman or the fetus, the pregnant woman and the fetus need to be monitored for both therapeutic and adverse effects of drug therapy. Serum levels of the drug should be monitored to detect elevations that may lead to adverse effects and the need for dosage adjustments. The FDA would not need to be informed that the woman is receiving drug therapy. At this point, with the patient already taking the drug, it is not necessary to check the FDA category of the drug. The use of nonpharmacologic alternatives is a good idea but would not be as critical as monitoring drug levels.

The patient is perspiring and her blood pressure is 88/50. The serum magnesium level is 10 mg/dL. The nurse will interpret these manifestations asResponse Feedback: Maternal adverse effects from magnesium sulfate toxicity are sweating, hypotension, flaccid paralysis, hypothermia, and cardiac depression. A serum level of 10 to 12 mg/dL is associated with toxicity (normal levels without infusion of magnesium sulfate are 1.8–3 mg/dL). Common adverse effects include headache, hyporeflexia, weakness, thirst, flushing, and burning at the infusion site. These manifestations do not indicate hypersensitivity or idiosyncratic reactions.Question 9 1 out of 1 pointsAlprostadil (Caverject), a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction, has been prescribed to a 42-year-old patient.

    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.
