Nurse provides care to oncology clients. Which clients require further intervention from the nurse? Select all that apply. 1. The client receiving a chemotherapeutic alkylating agent IV via an impanted port with redness on the chest 2. The client with bladder cancer reporting that "nothing tastes good" and who drinks four cans of nutritional supplement daily. 3. The client diagnosed with bone cancer who is receiving chemotherapy and is afebrile but has a productive cough. 4. The client who reports frequent bouts of diarrhea but states that the nausea is management with occasional sips of fluid.
1. This requires further intervention because this can cause necrosis if extravasation occurs. This client needs immediate intervention. 2. This does not require an intervention because nutritional needs are being addressed by supplements 3. This requires intervention because clients receiving chemo may not have a fever even though they are ill because of bone marrow depression. Client needs immediate intervention. 4. This requires intervention because this client is at great risk for dehydration due to frequent diarrhea and reduced oral intake.
What are the organs of the endocrine system, and what are the basic function of each?
The hypothalamus creates a link between endocrine and neurological functions in the body. The anterior pituitary stimulates or inhibits the release hormones (HGH, TSH, FSH, LF, Prolactin, ACTH) from the hypothalamus. The posterior pituitary functions like a garage that stores and releases hormones (oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone) made by the hypothalamus. The thyroid gland produce T3 and T4 which both increase basal metabolic rate and synthesize protein and also produces parathyroid hormone which regulates calcium, magnesium, and phosphate ions in the blood. The adrenal glands help with glucose and mineral homeostasis in the body, and also regulate the production of epinephrine and norepinephrine. The ovaries produce estrogen and progesterone, while the testes produce testosterone. The pineal gland contributes to setting a biological clock. Lastly, the thymus produces T cells which is vital for our immune system.
