  3. i have two diagnosis that i am having trouble making a short term/ long term goal can i please get some help. #1. Risk for falls r/t elevated blood glucose level as evidenced by patient fainting and being found on the floor of their home with no recollection of the incidence. #2. Ineffective coping r/t death of spouse as evidenced by patient crying, appearing withdrawn, poor appetite, high blood pressure, and patient stating she would like to "be left alone". Here is the case study scenario: Mrs. D. is a 73-year-old recently widowed female with a history of CAD, MI- 5 years ago, NIDDM- 7 years, and fairly good health. She was brought into the ER by her daughter, who because she could not reach the patient by phone went to the patient's apartment and found the patient on the floor with no recollection of how she got there. The patient has been admitted with a diagnosis of syncope. Vitals signs: 148/94, 93- irregular, 24, 97.8 F, blood sugar 317. The physical assessment shows no signs of injury or bruises and the patient is able to move all extremities without any pain. At present Mrs. D. is quiet, answers questions appropriately with short replies, is withdrawn, states that she wants to "be left alone", and has been see crying. Her appetite is poor, color is pale, and she cannot remember the last time she had "a decent" meal and "could care less".

    scope of practice

    I am doing a careplan for my clinical course and my patient seems depressed, my question is, am i within my scope of practice to recommend the patient see a therapist or can only a physician to that?

    pharm help

    250 mL of a 2% solution contains __ grams of the drug? how do i solve this problem?
  7. (question)1. An oral tablet has strength of 0.25 mg. The order is to give 0.125 mg. How many tablets will the nurse give? do i do it like this? "X" tablet= 0.25 mg * 1tab/0.125 = 2 tabs? or like this? "X" tablet =0.125 mg * 1tab/0.25mg= 0.5 tabs? (question)2. A client is ordered 150mg of aspirin. 300 mg aspirin tablets are available. How many tablets would you give? this question has similarities with question number 1, but where i get confused is where do i put my "X" under the strength? or the order?

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    you would need 2.3ml of diluent and you would administer 0.5 ml to the patient

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    the 200mg/ml because 1ml is the max administration for an adult male subcutaneous. the first concentration is 0.5 ml which is below the range, the second concentration is too high because of the equation i just posted which equaled to 1.2ml which is already above the max concentration allowed subcutaneously

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    and for the second part it would be like this? because "X" has a number which is 6 so.. "X"ml= 0.1g * 1000mg/1g * 6ml/500mg = 1.2ml?
  12. btf4

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    like this? "X"ml= 0.1G * 1000mg/1g * 1ml/200mg= 0.5 ml?

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    I'm not completely sure with this one, i tried doing this. (first) 500mg * ml/200mg= 2.5 ml (second) 500mg * 6ml/500mg= 6ml (third) 500mg * 4ml/200mg= 10ml

    Pharm problem help!?

    im being asked for how many ml to give, so i should not include the 6.6ml in the equation? so "X"ml=350mg * 1/250mg= 1.4ml?

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    which dilution is most appropriate and how much ml should i administer for the corresponding ml

    help with pharm question please/thank you

    (first) "X"ml=200mg * 2.3ml/500mg= 0.92 ml (second) i crossed multiplied because i am not sure how to find "x" if there is already a number there, so i did. 500mg/6ml * 5.8ml/500mg= 2900/3000= 0.97ml (third) 500mg/9.8ml * 4ml/200mg= 2000/1960= 1.0ml
