7.Laboratory monitoring for patients on ACEIs or ARBs should include: A.White blood cells counts with the drug dose increased for elevations above 10,000 B.Liver function tests with the drug dose stopped for ALT values 2normal C.Serum creatinine levels with the drug dose reduced for values above 2.5 mg/dL D.Serum glucose levels with the drug dose increased for levels above 120 mg/dLC.Serum creatinine levels with the drugdose reduced for values above 2.5 mg/dL8.Jacob has hypertension, for which a calcium channel blocker has been prescribed. This drug helps control blood pressurebecause it: 1.Decreases the amount of calcium inside the cell 2. Reduces stroke volume 3. increases the activity of the na+/K+/ATPase pump indirectly 4.Decreases HR1. Decreases the amount of calcium insidethe cell9. Which of the following adverse effects may occur due to a dihydropyridine-type calcium channel blocker? 1. bradycardia 2. hepatic impairment 3. increased contractility 4. edema of the hands and feet4. edema of the hands and feet10. patient teaching related to amlodipine includes: 1. increase calcium intake to prevent osteoporosis 2. do not crush the tablet; it must be given in liquid form if the patient has trouble swallowing it 3. avoid grapefruit juice as it affects the metabolism of this drug. 4. rise slowly from a supine position to reduce orthostatic hypotension3. Avoid grapefruit juice as it affects themetabolism of this drug --> increaseAmlodipine level.

11.Vera, age 70, has isolated systolic hypertension. Calcium channel blocker dosages for her should be: 1.Started at about half the usual dosage 2.Not increased over the usual dosage for an adult 3.Given once daily because of memory issues in the older adult 4.Withheld if she experiences gastroesophageal reflux1.Started at about half the usual dosage12.Larry has heart failure, which is being treated with digoxin because it exhibits: 1.Negative inotropism 2.Positive chronotropism 3.Both 1 and 2 4.Neither 1 nor 2Negative inotropism Positive chronotropism *NEITHER OF THESE ARE CORRECT OPPOSITE13.Furosemide is added to a treatment regimen for heart failure that includes digoxin. Monitoring for this combination includes: 1.Hemoglobin 2.Serum potassium 3.Blood urea nitrogen 4.Serum glucose2.Serum potassium14.Which of the following create a higher risk for digoxin toxicity? Both the cause and the reason for it must be correct. 1.Older adults because of reduced renal function 2.Administration of aldosterone antagonist diuretics because of decreased potassium levels 3.Taking an antacid for gastroesophageal reflux disease because it increases the absorption of digoxin 4.Doses between 0.25 and 0.5 mg/day1. Older adults due to reduced renalfunction15.Serum digoxin levels are monitored for potential toxicity. Monitoring should occur: 1.Within 6 hours of the last dose 2.Because a reference point is needed in adjusting a dose 3.After three half-lives from the starting of the drug 4.When a patient has stable renal function2.Because a reference point is needed inadjusting a dose

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
