    Term:

    The recovery room nurse is admitting a patient from the OR following the patient’s successful splenectomy. What is the first assessment that the nurse should perform on this newly admitted patient? A) Heart rate and rhythm B) Skin integrity C) Core body temperature D) Airway patency

    Definition:

    Ans: D Feedback: The primary objective in the immediate postoperative period is to maintain ventilation and, thus, prevent hypoxemia and hypercapnia. Both can occur if the airway is obstructed and ventilation is reduced. This assessment is followed by cardiovascular status and the condition of the surgical site. The core temperature would be assessed after the airway, cardiovascular status, and wound (skin integrity).
