You enter a patient's room and find them unresponsive in their bed. After checking for a pulse and being unable to find one, what is the first action you should take? A. Begin CPR B. Call for help C. Attach defibrillator pads D. Call the physician
B. Call for help - You may be tempted to immediately begin CPR; however, once you begin CPR you can't stop. If you make attempts to call for help while performing CPR and no one comes to your aid, you would need to exit the room and find an assistant. By calling for help first, you can ensure that you'll have help and then begin CPR.

Explain the mechanism of action and medication class for Lisinopril.
Lisinopril is an ACE-Inhibitor. Its main effect is lowering blood pressure. It does this by acting on angiotensin-converting enzyme. Normally, this enzyme would active Angiotensin II which would cause vasoconstriction of the blood vessels (increasing blood pressure) as well as the release of aldosterone, which causes reabsorption of sodium and water, also leading to an increase in blood pressure. By inhibiting these actions, vasoconstriction and aldosterone release is prevented and blood pressure is consequently lowered.
