Well I think I just sat through the most nightmarish exam I've experienced in nursing school so far. NONE of the stuff covered in the semester was included and there was a whole bunch of stuff we HADN'T even touched on! I think I did OK on those with a bit of lateral thinking, but the worst bit was some killer multiple choices where we had to pick the best right answer. I'll see if I can give you a couple to see what you guys make of them! What would you think?1. A woman injects heroin in order to feel the euphoria of the drug. She is displaying:a. Harmful drug useb. Addiction c. Toleranced. Addictive behaviour2. Symptoms of an acute haemolytic reaction include:a. Bradycardia and pruritisb. Urticaria and low back painc. Temp rise of >1 degree and chillsd. Wheezing and pallor3. The MOST important thing to do before administering a blood transfusion is:a. Take a very detailed patient history.b. Match blood type to recipient.c. Ensure you have the right giving set and drip rate.d. Ensure the blood has been correctly cross-matched and signatures of 2 lab techs are present.4. Which statement made by the patient indicates that he does not fully understand his diagnosis of Ulcerative colitis:a. "The problem started in my rectum"b. "The problem affects multiple layers of my colon"c. "I need to change my diet as I am allergic to some foods"d. "My problem is not able to be cured". :uhoh21: Is it just me or were these HARD to pick the best answer??? What would yur answers have been?? Oh well - will just have to sweat until the results are out! In the meantime I have another final in a week, so I'd better crack the books!
