Question:

Magnesium sulfate is being given for refractory ventricular tachycardia in a patient with an acute myocardial infarction. The patient becomes hypotensive with respiratory depression and hyporeflexia.

Answer:

Answer: B. First, one must know magnesium sulfate relaxes muscles and therefore, is resulting in this patient becoming hypotensive and having hyporeflexia. In order to excrete magnesium quickly, calcium chloride can be given IV to act as an antagonist to hypermagnesemia. Diuretics (lasix) and starting dialysis would take too long. And a code is not necessary as the patient is not in arrest.

Question:

Your patient is in hypovolemic shock. Which of the following would alert you that he is at risk of acute tubular necrosis? a. Serum potassium of 5 mEq/L b. pH of 7.36 c. Urine output of 50 mL/hr d. Mean arterial pressure (MAP) of 58 mmHg

Answer:

Answer: D. First, one must know tubular necrosis is an issue resulting in a lack of oxygen to one's kidneys. Therefore, a MAP of less than 60 mm Hg would indicate a lack of blood flow/tissue perfusion, resulting in acute tubular necrosis and acute kidney injury. The other answers are not concerning or cause for immediate intervention.

Answer:

Answer: A. First, one must be able to locate the sternum and determine what is below (distal) to it. The opposite of distal is proximal. Therefore, in this question it is key to know common anatomy terms such as; distal, proximal, anterior and posterior. It is also important to know the prefixes in anatomy questions as prefixes are very common in anatomy. Epi means on top or near. Gastric means stomach.
