NURSING 201 Saunders Review Test 2

not have regular periods while taking this medication. C. I should return in approximately 6 months for my next injection. Correct D. Because it is highly effective, I can use this medication for many years. Correct E. Depression is a side effect, and I should let my doctor know if I experience any mood changes. Incorrect Rationale: Medroxyprogesterone is an injectable progestin given every 3 months to prevent ovulation and pregnancy. It suppresses ovulation for 15 weeks, and therefore, timing of the next injection is very important and should be no longer than exactly 3 months. Although medroxyprogesterone is highly effective, it should not be taken for more than 2 years due to the risk of osteoporosis. Weight gain, irregular periods, and depression are all known side effects. Test-Taking Strategy: Note the strategic words, need for further teaching. These words indicate a negative event query and the need to select the incorrect client statements. Specific knowledge about this medication is needed to answer correctly. Remember that it needs to be given every 3 months and should not be taken for more than 2 years due to the risk of osteoporosis.

On further assessment, which laboratory finding would the nurse expect to find? A. Serum calcium of 8.4 mg/dL (2.1 mmol/L) B. Correct C. Sodium level of 138 mEq/L (138 mmol/L) D. Serum potassium of 5.1 mEq/L (5.1 mmol/L) E. F. Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) of 1.5 mU/L Incorrect Rationale: Hypocalcemia is characterized by tetany, or sustained muscle contractions. Chvosteks sign is facial contractions seen after a light tap of the facial nerve in front of the ear. Trousseaus sign is carpal contraction when a blood pressure cuff is inflated. These two signs are observed in hypocalcemia. Test-Taking Strategy: Focus on the subject, thyroid surgery and the signs of hypocalcemia. Use knowledge of signs of muscle contractions and its association with a low calcium level. Note that hypocalcemia is a known complication after thyroid surgery and serum calcium levels should be closely monitored. Review: hypocalcemia.
