Question:

The healthcare provider is caring for a patient who has type 1 diabetes and hypertension. Which of the following medications on the patient’s medication administration record will be of concern to the nurse? Lantus ACE inhibitor Calcium channel clocker Beta-blocker

Courtney L.
Answer:

This question is asking, which medication is NOT appropriate for a patient who has the conditions of type 1 diabetes and hypertension. Looking at our choices, what do we know? We know Lantus is a long-acting insulin, used by type 1 diabetics. This medication is good. The remainder of our medications is blood pressure medications. We must have some knowledge of these to answer our question. Let's think of side effects. ACE inhibitors have side effects of a dry cough, low BP, and some others not related to diabetes. Calcium channel blockers can cause low BP, constipation, drowsiness, and some others not related to type 1 diabetes. However, Beta blockers can mask the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia. This is a concern for diabetics, as it is important to know when blood sugar is too low so that it may be corrected. Our answer here is beta blockers.

Question:

3x = 27 Solve for x.

Courtney L.
Answer:

When solving for a variable, the variable must be isolated (alone). In order to isolate a variable, we must 'undo' the operation it is attached to, and do the same to both sides of the equation. In the example above, 3 is attached to x by multiplication. We must, therefore, divide by 3 since division is the opposite, or inverse, of multiplication. What we do to one side, we must do to the other. When we divide 3x by 3, we are left with x. When we divide 27 by 3, we are left with 9. Therefore, x = 9.
