    In class today a professor reminded us that adequate urinary output is frequently on the NCLEX. Adults = 30-50 mL/hr; peds = 1-2 mL/kg/hr

    Hi! I am taking the NCLEX tomorrow and hope to come out as a Registered Nurse thanks to Kaplan, some Saunders and Lacharity, and this amazing thread! This is my first post as I just finally created an account today, and here are my 5 random NCLEX facts!

    1. Urinary output is the most reliable measurement to assess cardiac output and tissue perfusion.

    2. A priority intervention for patients on antiemetics is protection from injury, since most antiemetics cause drowsiness.

    3. Alcohol, infection, bed rest, and certain medications such as decongestants and antidepressants may contribute to urinary retention.

    4. Normal IOP is 10-21 mm Hg and usually higher in the morning.

    5. Breastfeeding is NOT contraindicated for clients with hep B IF the neonate has been vaccinated.

    thank you to everyone for your facts and good luck to those who need it!

    I take my NCLEX at 2 PM, and even though I told myself I wasn't doing any more studying, I'm skimming through this! It's perfect, and it's reassuring to see how much of it I already know!

    ADH causes body to hold onto water.

    DI is a deficiency in ADH. You can't hold water with this deficit so you're peeing like crazy and super thirsty! Since you're peeing water (4-30L/day) then you have hypernatremia. Other s/s are of dehydration. Tachy, low Bp, elevated temp! Meds to tx is pitressin! Give hypotonic fluids!

    SIADH: too much ADH. Your body holds onto too much water= you can't pee! Edema, high Bp because too much volume, hyponatremia! Treat with declomycin and give hypertonic fluids to pull fluids out the cells! Pc is cerebral edema!

    Thyroid indirectly stimulates the heart. You got problems with your thyroid, you can also bet your hearts gonna be in trouble too!

    Never give kayexate with diminished bowel sounds! Always assess bowel sounds before giving!

    Had a guy the other day I thought for sure was DI. This man put out 2L in 2 hours. He overdosed, possibly on SSRIs. Never did hear what they came up with on that. Anyway, it was wild just watching the urine running like a faucet into his foley bag. He slowed down considerably as they day went on.
