    Nclex question

    What is the priority in sickle cell... O2, or fluids??
    according to PDA its O2. I always thought it was fluids first!
    Fluids first. In a crisis the cells have clumped together and are concluding vessels. The viscosity of the blood is thicker, the patient is dehydrated.
    The sickled cells cannot hold O2.

    Nclex question


    doing some ncbsn questions.. review courses always say dont ask why questions but recently on ncbsn and pda those seem to be the answer sometimes for example

    1. during administration of medications to a client, the client says to the nurse I do not want to take it today whatxis the appropiate response

    a thats ok.. its ok to skip ur meds once in awhile
    b do you understand the consequesces of not taking your med?
    c is there a reason why you do not want to take your med today?
    d i will have to call your doctor

    I did get the question correct bcuz even though it is a yes/no question and it contains the word why it is the only assesment that sounds better ... but does anyone understand my confusion.. i tend to eliminate all why questions and i guess i cant do that anymore

    I would of picked C. Because I would want to find out if there was a reason, he didn't want to take the medication... There's a teaching opportunity

    The strategy of not asking why means questions that start out with why such as: ""Why don't you want to take your med?" That puts the patient on the defensive. To say to a patient, "Can you tell me why you do not want to take this med?" Or the way it was stated in the original question invites a discussion.
