5 Multiple choice questions
- Severe allergic reaction in a patient who has previously been exposed to an allergen. Ie. contrast dyes, drugs, insect bites, foods such as peanuts.
- Loss of sympathetic tone (disruption of SNS)
Skin warm and dry, decreasd BP, Decreased HR, Decreased Temperature.
- also called 'colloid osmotic pressure', is the 'pulling force', pulling fluids from the surrounding tissue into the capillaries. It's the result of a difference in the concentration of solutes in the fluid inside the capillaries as opposed to outside them
- VS, elastic compression stockings, HOB elevated 30 degrees.
- mental confusion, depression, apathy, oliguria, heart failure (low CO), tachycardia (report HR >100/min), thready pulse, thirst, restlessness, anxiety, lethargy, cool extremities, pale skin, frequently hypotension (report BP <90), fainting, syncope rapid, shallow breathing (body trying to get more O2), metabolic acidosis, coma.
5 True/False questions
mechanical support during cardiogenic shock → intra-aortic ballon pump (IABP)
Nursing considerations during cardiogenic shock → vital signs, electrolyte imbalance, I&O, correct acidosis
anaphylactic shock → vasodilation d/t ALLERGIC REACTION causing release of HISTAMINE.
septic shock → a condition in which systemic blood pressure is inadequate to deliver oxygen and nutrients to support vital organs and cellular function- hypoxia
hypovolemic shock → vasodilation d/t nerve injury and suppression of SNS.
