Hi everyone I was reviewing NCLEX questions from the Exam cram book & there was this question which read like this:
A client with preeclampsia has been receiving an infusion containing mag. Sulfate. B/P is 160/80, Deep tendon reflexes are 1+, and Urinary output for the past hour is 100ml. The nurse should:
A. Continue the infusion of mag sulfate while monitoring the clients BP
B. Stop the infusion of Mag. Sulfate & contact the Physician
C. Slow the infusion rate & turn the client on her left side
D. Administer calcium gluconte & continue to monitor the BP
My choice was B because Looking @ the urinary output which is too much & also decreased deep tendon reflexes... ..I thought the infusion should be stopped.
I need some suggestions because I didn't understand why the correct answer was A.
Thank you all.
