    I think it should be C.

    During pregnancy, there is an increase of blood volume causing a physiologic anemia.

    A is not the correct option because it may be common during the 1st and 3rd trim due to pressure of the bladder but not Na.

    B is not the correct option because heart rate i think increases rather than decreases.
    D is incorrect because a pregnant woman may have a shallow respiration due to the inability of the lungs to fully expand (pressure of the enlarging uterus that pushes the uterus up)

    This is a reworded question, I think we are not allowed to post exact questions from textbooks.

    A family likes to visit their 95 year old grandmother who lives in a nursing home. What is an important advice for the nurse to provide to the family in order to prevent their mother from communicable disease?

    A. Do not visit if they feel sick
    B. Use alcohol gel hand wash before entering the room
    C. Do not bring children under 5 years to visit
    D. In case of coughing/sneezing use disposable tissue


    Sorry for any grammar errors.

    Textbook questions are fine as long as they're not taken verbatim from the book. It's questions from the actual exam that cannot be discussed in any forum, since the Canadian Nurses' Association included a clause in the exam application that states candidates will not discuss actual exam questions in order to preserve the validity of the testing method.

    I would say A and I try not to guess.

    B is a good advice but what doesn't apply to air born precaution. One can use alcohol gel but sneez or cough all the time.
    C there is no indication that children under 5 can't visit unless they are sick.
    D It's a good advice but not better than A.

    Good question though. Makes you think.

    I've found a good question from the book which I put it here in a different formate.

    The cardiac system of a pregnant client with a cardiac condition will be more most compromised during:

    a. 1st trimester
    b. 3rd trimester
    c. transitional phase
    d. first two days after delivery

    The answer to this question is B.
    A is not correct because not everyone shows s/s at the beginning of a communicable disease therefore they can be symptomatic
    C The nursing home has no policy on who can/cannot visit
    D This is a good choice but answer B is better

    B is the most correct answer because it is taking precaution.

    d. first two days after delivery

    I am going to say B because of the entire labour and delivery process. Otherwise i have no clue really.

    It's actually d. I picked up c first as well. Here's the rational.
    a can't be correct because during the 1st trimester the increased amount of circulating blood volume is minimal.
    b is not correct because the increase in blood volume occurs gradually as the pregnancy progress and usually pregnant
    women with cardiac problem closely are monitored during this time.
    c although there's an increased risk of stress on the heart during delivery close monitoring and the use of meds that provides rest and pain relief help to decrease this stress.

    d is correct because this is the time that the body faces a rapid fluid shift. Extravascular fluid returns to the bloodstream and this put a huge strain on heart that can lead to cardiac decompensation.

    Good job Renzlao on the question. Do you have a good question to post?

    I found a great case on maternity. Sarah is 30 weeks gestation and is attending education classes with her husband Andrew. Minett is the nurse.

    1.Sarah says to Minett, "I am worried about gaining too much weight because I heard that I will never get rid of this weight gain." What is Minett's best response.
    a) A weight gain of 7-8 kG is recommended
    b) If you have gained over 5 kG, you should start a low calorie diet
    c) Don't worry about pregnancy weight. the health of your baby is your concern.
    d) an 11-15 kg weight gain is recommended to allow for proper growth of the baby. It should not cause you to be overweight afterwards
