    Between a and d, I pick A. crackles.
    When protein concentration in blood drops, intracellular osmolarity increases and as a result fluid shifts from the blood into intracellular space, including lungs.
    One way to remember this is to consider that people with liver failure, end up having massive edema because of drop of oncotic pressure in blood.
    Should we focus on F+E for a while?

    The answer is A. Albumin maintains colloid oncontic pressure in the intravascular space. When there is a decrease in albumin, fluids goes interstial, and one of the manisfestation being crackles. We can focus on anything upto you guys.

    Thanks.

    To ensure optimum nutrition, the nurse may find that Mrs. Jacob needs assistance with eating. To accomplish this, what action should the nurse take?

    1.Eencourage her to participate in the feeding process
    2. Feed Mrs. Jacob to conserve energy
    3. Request that her food be pureed
    4. Have her niece feed her meals


    Case detail: 78yrs has CVA/bedridden/aphasic

    The answer is actually #1 encourage her to feed herself. I picked #3 as well. The rational provided was encouraging her to feed herself would provide her encouragment and she would be involved in her care. I don't totally agree because it did say she is aphasic and she needs assisstance. Providing her pureed food will help her maintain ideal nutrition as well.

    Any other explanation is welcome thanks.

    As I see it #1 just mentions encouraging her to participate in the feeding process, doesn't say whether food is pured but if she is having difficulty then getting her involved may be the boost she needs and encouragement

    I think the aphasic there is just a trap.
    The emphasize here is how we assist someone who's already bedridden with her nutritional need. Are we going to feed her so she then become completely dependent or we get her involve in her care? I would have picked a too.

    I was supposed to choose number 1, got stucked with "aphasic" never realizing that its not something about the problem with eating.... my bad!

    The 5th edition of the crne prep guide is expensive, shipping is more costly than the book price. What's the difference between the 4th and the 5th? Can the 4th edition be used as a review for the June 2010? or not anymore? Help please...thanks

    We had a video conference with someone from CRNBC (college of registered nurses of BC) on the very last class we had and one of the student asked the same question. The answer was it's not a real huge difference between two books as the content are still the same. She said if you have to buy a new book, well by the 5th ed. but if you already have the 4th one, stick with it and it should be fine.
    I think I had a page of minor changes in the exam sent to us via email. I see if I can find it and send it to you.
    cheers

    Hi Nice earyen,

    Are you in Canada? I am here in Calgary. I have a copy of the CRNE Prep Guide 5th ed. and I love it! I would offer to lend you my copy but chances are you are far away from where I am right now. It is quite expensive to order it straight from Ottawa. I purchased my copy from a university here in Calgary and I did not have to pay for shipping fees & HST (just Alberta`s GST).

    ADvid268,

    Hi there! so nice of you to do that, I am just wondering it the contents are the same with the 4th edition except for the short questions, or they have a totally different line ups of questions? I mean the way questions are constructed...

    I am not in Canada yet, still working on it.

    Thanks....
