During a tube feeding via gastrostomy, the client tells the nurse that he already feels full, as well as nauseated. Select the appropriate nursing actions. Select all that apply: Measure the gastric residual. Dilute the formula with water. Stop the infusion for an hour. Place client on his right side. Administer an antiemetic. Try another type of formula.
Stop the infusion for an hour Place client on his right side Explanation: Feeling full and nauseous are signs of delayed gastric emptying. Stop the feeding for an hour and reassess. Placing the client on his right side may help the stomach empty and relieve the symptoms. Gastric residual is measured before the infusion begins. Adding water will only increase the volume. An antiemetic is not appropriate at this point, nor is it changing the type of formula.
Determine whether the following is a statistical question. Does Miranda have a college degree?
Not statistical Answering this question does not require collect extra data. A statistical question would require collecting data with variability
Which of these is not a factor that controls stroke volume? sympathetic stimulation of the myocardium end-diastolic volume end-systolic volume cardiac output contractility of the heart
Cardiac output Stroke Volume is the volume of blood pumped from the left ventricle per beat. Stroke volume is calculated using measurements of ventricle volumes from an echocardiogram and subtracting the volume of the blood in the ventricle at the end of a beat (called end-systolic volume) from the volume of blood just prior to the beat (called end-diastolic volume). Stroke volume depends on several factors such as heart size, contractility, duration of contraction, preload (end-diastolic volume), and afterload.
