    morphine is the drug of choice for pain in a pt with pancretitis. (true/false) demerol is preferred against morphine because it causes spasms

    ***but you want to be very careful, because of demerol's metabolites, in certain classes of patients with decreased drug clearances, e.g. those with renal disease. make sure they don't throw a ringer in there on you.***

    why would morphine be ordered for an acute mi? to decrease hr

    ***actually, you give morphine to decrease preload. morphine has an initial action of systemic vasodilation (hence the initial bp drop), but the venous dilation lasts much longer and allows the venous side to serve as capacitance vessels. this decreases rv venous return/preload, with the indirect effect of reducing lv end-diastolic volume.***

    here are my answers/rationales:

    after a tonsillectomy, what is indicative of hemorrhage? freq swallowing

    what position should a pt be placed in after a liver biopsy? right side lying. since hemorrhage is a major comp. of a liver biopsy, placing the pt on his rt side applies added pressure to the site.

    what are some causes of an ectopic pregnancy? pid, an iud, anything that causes uterine scarring.

    what is the first thing you should do after membranes rupture? check fetal heart rate. yes, checking the fluid characteristics are important, but the fetal heart rate is the priority. after membranes rupture, there's an increased risk of cord prolapse.

    following a mastectomy, how should you position the pt's arm? slightly elevated. this helps to prevent edema r/t removal of lymph nodes.

    what is the first thing you should do if someone is choking? first, you must ask the pt if they're choking. i know this sounds silly, but if they can answer you vocally that means their airway isn't compromised. it's used to assess the airway.

    if a breast-feeding mother has mastitis, she should stop breast-feeding. (true/false) a breast-feeding mother must con't to breastfed. this helps prevent the stasis of milk which can complicate mastitis.

    if a woman is pregnant and her rubella titer is <1:8, she should be vaccinated during pregnancy. (true/false) the rubella vaccine is never given during pregnancy b/c it can cause severe birth defects, even death.

    if you assess a postpartum pt's uterus and it is boggy, what should you do? first, you must massage the uterus to expel any clots that can be prohibiting normal involution.

    what priority teaching should be given to a woman taking accutane? women must not get preg while taking accutane. it can lead to serious fetal complications.
