On 2 different tests she said the only way she got several questions was from the random facts that I threw at her that she never would have thought of!
SOOOOO..... I thought that if yall wanted to do this we could get a thread going and try to throw out 5 random facts or "things to remember". NCLEX is coming and the more I try to review content the more I realize that I have forgotten so......here are my 5 random facts for ya:
OH and BTW these came from rationales in Kaplan or Saunders no made up stuff:
1. A kid with Hepatitis A can return to school 1 week within the onset of jaundice.
2. After a patient has dialysis they may have a slight fever...this is normal due to the fact that the dialysis solution is warmed by the machine.
3. Hyperkalemia presents on an EKG as tall peaked T-waves
4. The antidote for Mag Sulfate toxicity is ---Calcium Gluconate
5. Impetigo is a CONTAGEOUS skin disorder and the person needs to wash ALL linens and dishes seperate from the family. They also need to wash their hands frequently and avoid contact.
oh ohh one more...
Vasopressin is also known as antidiuretic hormone
OK your turn....[\QUOTE]
Okay, this is my first time doing this...so here goes!
1. "Curling's ulcer" can develop 24 hours after a severe burn, and the gastric pH, if less than 5.0 must be reported to the healthcare provider.
2. Celiac disease diet should be HIGH in calories, HIGH in protein, and NO rye, oats, wheat, or barley (Gluten Free).
3. Symptoms of cardiovascular fluid overload: Rales & Crackles.
4. In stage 4 Parkinson's Disease, patient is UNable to ambulate; patient is immobile so nurses must provide ROM exercises to all limbs, 4x/day.
5. (Possible SATA Question): Teaching or advice to give to a patient who will be taking Risperidone (Risperdal) *May gain weight *Avoid extreme temps *Wear long sleeves in the sun * Change positions slowly.
