    what will you do if you have a pt having a pentrose drain with sanguineous after 2 days of surgery

    1- apply pressure to the site
    2- continue to monitor
    3-notify the physician because it shows the pt drainage is active bleeding and need to be reported.
    4- document the finding.

    a pt who is receiving an iv replacement c/o of severe headache, sob and increase heart rate. what will be your first action

    1- sit the pt up in bed
    2- remove the iv
    3- shut off the iv infusion
    rationale:the iv infusion pump need to be shut off because the symptoms show the sign of fluid overload and the iv line need not to be remove because it will be needed later.
    4- slow the rate of iv infusion rate.

    answer- iliac crest and sternum

    which type of restraint is used to prevent a child with cleft lip repair from disrupting the incision.

    The answer is 2 because a 15 years old pt in this scenario can give informed consent and consent of a minor is sufficient for these type of treatment for STD. Also Parents can give informed consent for treatment of a minor with three exceptions.firstly, during life threatening situation/emergency and when a court order or other legal authorization was made.
