A. "You must have an infection, so let me get a urine specimen."B. "Your body is undergoing many changes that cause your bladder to fill quickly."C. "Your uterus is not contracting as quickly as it should."D. "The anesthesia that you received is wearing off and your bladder is working again."Answer: BRationale: Postpartum diuresis occurs as a result of several mechanisms: the large amounts of IVfluids given during labor, a decreasing antidiuretic effect of oxytocin as its level declines, thebuildup and retention of extra fluids during pregnancy, and a decreasing production ofaldosterone—the hormone that decreases sodium retention and increases urine production.

The nurse develops a teaching plan for a postpartum client and includes teaching about howto perform pelvic floor muscle training or Kegel exercises. The nurse includes this informationfor which reason?A. reduce lochiaB. promote uterine involutionC. improve pelvic floor toneD. alleviate perineal painAnswer: CRationale: Pelvic floor muscle training or Kegel exercises help to improve pelvic floor tone,strengthen perineal muscles, and promote healing, ultimately helping to prevent urinaryincontinence later in life. Kegel exercises have no effect on lochia, involution, or pain.Question format: Multiple ChoiceChapter 15: Postpartum AdaptationsCognitive Level: ApplyClient Needs: Health Promotion and MaintenanceReference: p. 51816. When assessing a postpartum woman, the nurse suspects the woman is experiencing aproblem based on which finding?A. elevated white blood cell countB. acute decrease in hematocritC. increased levels of clotting factorsD. pulse rate of 60 beats/minuteAnswer: BRationale: Despite a decrease in blood volume after birth, hematocrit levels remain relativelystable and may even increase. An acute decrease is not an expected finding. Red blood cellproduction ceases early in the puerperium, causing mean hemoglobin and hematocrit levels todecrease slightly in the first 24 hours. During the next 2 weeks, both levels rise slowly. Thewhite blood count, which increases in labor, remains elevated for first 4 to 6 days after birth butthen falls to 6,000 to 10,000/mm3. The WBC count remains elevated for the first 4 to 6 days andclotting factors remain elevated for 2 to 3 weeks. Bradycardia (50 to 70 beats per minute) for thefirst two weeks reflects the decrease in cardiac output. The increase in cardiac output and strokevolume during pregnancy begins to diminish after birth once the placenta has been delivered.
