Congentin relieve muscle ridigity and tremors. Monitor for side effects of dry mouth, blurred vision, dizziness, urine retention and glaucoma. ****know the dyskinesias of parkinsons**** extrapyridal effect is caused by degeneration of the parts of basal ganglia. 3)LEGG CALVE PERTHES DISEASE - idiopathic vascular necrosis of the femoral head causing dislocation,flattened femoral head Tx spica body cast.Most common in boys 4-10yrs old . Provide cast care by petaling cast with tape.The joint most commonly affected is the hip. 4)RHINITIS-(cold) a parent needs further teaching if they say they should give antibiotic 5)DUMPING SYNDROME-sense of fullness,weakness,faitness,cramping,diarrhea nsg intervention-following the meal ,lie down for 20-30minutes,avoid fluids except during meals. 6)WHY IS TRACTION USED PREOP FOR A TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT- to prevent dislocation. use abduction pillow What med is given post op?** What do you tell pt they can not do after hip sugery?? a)sleep with pillow between knees, keep knee together, keep legs internally rotated or semi fowlers? 7)WHAT WOULD MAKE A LUPUS PT FEEL BETTER ABOUT THEMSELVES? see a cosmetologist to cover face rash. pt has a defiency in acetycholine and also should get plenty of rest. Butterfly rash. Nursing Diagnosis-self care deficit. Pt sholud be told to restriict exposure to sunlight to prevent an acute onset of symptoms. 8)LUPUS IS SIMILIAR TO WHAT DISEASE? RA. This pt knows she should get plenty of rest. Lupys pt’s have a defiency in Acetylcholine. 9)WHAT VITALS INDICATE ICP? rising systolic B/P & slowing of pulse rate. You can tell that an infant has Icp by bulging fontanels 10)FAT EMBOLI-S/sx sudden respiratory distresss and restlessness.Common in femur fractures 11)PENDROSE DRAIN-EFFECTIVE APPLY GAUZE AROUND AND OVER DRAIN? 12)LYME DISEASE-looks like a rash, carried by tick S/sx include “bulls eye” rash.

ISOLATE THE CHILD FOR AT LEAST 24HRS, PROVIDE A
DARK ENVIRONMENT, KEEP THE CHILD FLAT IN BED,INSTITUTE SEIZURE PRECAUTIONS. The spinal fluid would show increased WBC’s, decrease glucose, increase protein.***what would you do in an accute attack? b)s/s aura? 15)POST OP HIP FX- WHAT KIND OF SPLINT IS USED?abduction pillow b)most common contracture after hipfx c)sign of dislocation? internally rotated - shorter or longer extremity 16)SOMANELLA-(typhoid fever) carried in the human feces and transmitted through sewage, flies, and shellfish. 17)MS- patho ?chronic , degenerative, progressive,disease of CNS with small patches of demyelination in the brain and the spianl cord. S/sx- weakness,loss of balance, visual disturbances,ataxia ,tremors- Diet high calorie, hi protein, hi vitamin, low fat 18)RISK FOR POST OP OBESE PT-overweight pt is at increased risk for complications because lack of blood supply common in adipose tissue impedes wound healing process. 19)SEIZURES-place pt in lateral side. dilantin used to control. Status epilepticus is defined as seizures which? 20)RHEUMATIC FEVER-usually follows strep throat, ( mediciation for strep is penicllin ) increases wbc’c,increased ESR, bedrest S/sx weakness,rapid muscle movements,,facial grimaces, the best activity for a child with rf is checkers because it will reduce the workload of the heart. Possible long term effects -heart valve damage 21)RUBEOLA MEASLES-most effective prevention is vaccination.S/sx fever, nasal discharge, cough,rash from head to toe, KOPLICKS SPOTS- grayish white forming on mucosa.The nursing diagnosi most appropriated is knowledge realated to compliance with the immuninization schedule. 22)OSTOMY MOST LIKELY CAUSE EXORIATION, ileostomy is an artificial opening in the small bowel wall. 23) ZOSTER IMMUNE GLOBULIN- used to stimulate an immunity to varicella. 24)WHY DO PTS EXPERIENCE PURITIS IN HEP BURNS*********** what do you watch for in a pt with electrical burn? cardiac arrhythmias. why do you use mannitol in electrical burns? 25)POSITION FOR BURN PT-arms extended WHAT IS 1ST DEGREE BURN?

The test measure the distance in milliliters that RBC’s descend in normal saline in one hour.Pathologic conditoins increase the protein content of plasma. RBC”s have a tendency t o stack up on each other , increasing their weight and causing them to decsend faster. Therefore the ESR will be increased. Normal male findings are up to 15mm/hour and in females up to 20mm/hour. The ESR is fairly accurate regarding the presence of pathologic conditions when vague symptoms are present. what disease increase the ESR? 39)HAEMOPHILUS INFLUENZA- this shot would be contraindicated in the 16 year old patient on steroids b)notify doctor immediately if pt on steroids has . epigastric pain? 40)CHILD CHOREA-ACTIVITY-lower motor neuron disease may cause various abnormal movements.

Cataracts commonly affect both eyes but each cataract progresses indendently. Surgery restores vision in about 95% but without surgery, eventually will result in complete visoin loss. Clinical Manifestations- Blinding glare from headlights when driving at night, poor reading vision, and glare in bright sunlight. Inspection reveals a milky area behind the pupil with advanced cataracts. Specific post op instructions include application of an eye shield or patch as oreder, instillation of eye drops, advise against activities that increase intraocular pressure, such as straing with cough, bowel movement or lifting: rubbing the affected eye: and bending at the waist, avoid laying on stomache, sneezing, and bedrest immediately post op.What woul be cause for concern after this surgery and would be something to call doctor for.? WHICH SIDE SHOULD POST OP LAY ON? bedrest and prone Detached Retina - retina tears or holes rarely heal spontaneously. Sx-floating spots, recurring light flashes, vision deteriorates to looking through a veil or curtain.**result of detached retina**?sensation of a veil in the line of sight. Glaucoma-- gradual loss of perpheral vision.open angle is asymptomatic: vision loss is major late sx.angel closure s/sx pain halo vision, blurred vision, redness, and change in eye appearance. Tx- decrease production of aqueous humor with timolol. Miotic dilates pupil which promotes aqueous humor output. a)WHAT IS THE ACTION OF nEO-SYNEPHRINE FOR EYE SURGERY? dilation 52)READ ABOUT CHICKENPOX-CAN BE FATAL IF WHAT MEDS ARE TAKEN?-ASA REYES SYNDOME CAN ALSO OCCUR.

Dizziness is expected. *pt is having an increase amount of?.* 54)MYASTHENIA GRAVIS-causes muscle weakness and fatigue, which may lead to decreases pulmonary ventilation. Ineffective breathing pattern is a priority nursing diagnosis since oxygenation is a basic vital function to survival. Complications from weakness and fatigue may lead too impaired physical mobility and skin integrity. Excessive muscular weakness, easy fatigabililty, diplopia and ptosis and a sleepy, masklike expression are symptoms. The most common medication is pyridostigmine steroids, mestinon, prostignin. WHAT IS THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST?tensilon test.Pt should be instructed to do physically demanding activities in the morning.DECREASED ACETYLOCHOLINE RECEPTORS IN MYASTHENIA GRAVIS.

Most common source is lead paint, soil,dust or drinking water with lead.**sypmtoms** 56) look up sepTIC SHOCK S/S , VS caused by gram negative bacterial.(Uti, Catheters) Low BP, warm skin. 58)MRI- magnetized patient tissue generates a weak electomagnetic signal that is mapped for visualization. Provides contrast between various tissues that is more detailed than CT scan or xray. Pt should be advised to remove jewelry .Motor function is affected Pt lie flat on a platform which moves through a magnetized tube. 59)-Electroencephalogram (EEG)- a graphic recording of the electrical activity of the brain. It is diagnostic for seizure disorders to determine the focus of the dysfunction and may also be helpful in the determining the size and location of cerebral infarts. 60)Xray- Shows the postion of normal structures and the displacement of and presence of abnormal shadows. Xray procedures may be combined with use of contrast media such as barium to provide better visualization of abnormal structure and function 61)Radionuclide Bone Scan: An intravevanous injection of radioistotope is administered. The scan visualizes bone in ways which normal radiographic studies cannot since areas of disease generally absorb greater amounts of the radioactive isotope. 62)Electomyograph (EMG)- a recording electrode is placed into a muscle to monitor electrical activity. EMG is used to detect primary muscular disooorders along withh muscular abnormalities caused by other system diseases such as nerve dysfunction. 63)Mononucleosis-the organsim thought to be responsible is Epstein- Barr virus. These Pt’s should avoid strenous activity because the spleen can easily suffer damage. 64)Otitis media- COMMON IN INFANTS BECAUSE THE EAR CANAL IS SHORTER AND LESS ANGELED. NOTE THAT INFANTS PULL ON THE EAR WHEN IN PAIN. ASSESSS FOR RED TYMPANIC MEMBRANE. REMEMBER TO PULL EAR DOWN AND BACK WHEN ADM EARDOPS TO INFANTS.OTTIS MEDIA CAN CAUSE CONDUCTION DEAFNESS
B)HEARING LOSS/ CONDUCTIVE OR NEUROSENSORY C)OTOSCLEROSIS-CONDUCTIVE HEARING LOSS. sOUND INTERRUPTED AS IT TRAVELS FROM THE EXTERNAL CANAL TO THE INNER EAR. cAUSED BY SLOW FORMATION OF SPONGEY BONE IN THE AREA WHERE THE INNER EAR BONES CONDUCT SOUND WAVES. SX-SLOW PROGRESSIVE HEARING LOSS, TINNITUS, HEAR CONVERSATION BETTER IN NOISY ENVIRONMENT. 65)LABS TO INDICATE LOSS OF FLUIDS FROM BURNS-INCREASED K,DECREASED Na,INCREASED HEMOGLOBIN AND HEMATOCRIT,METABOLIC ACIDOSIS 66) ESCHAR IS BEST DESCRIBED AS NECROTIC SLOUGH 67)FOR A PT WITH CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING, WHAT SKIN COLOR WOULD YOU INITIALLY EXPECT TO FIND? CHERRY RED 68)FOLLOWING A 2ND DEGREE BURN, WHICH FOOD IS RECOMMENDED? MEAT,CITRUS, FRUIT,MILK 69)SX SPINAL SHOCK- 70)CAT SCAN-****look up. tell child before catscan to lay still while big machine takes picture. 71) ROCKY MOUNTAIN FEVER- CLASSIC SIGN- joint pain, muscle pain and a white covering on tounge. ASK PATIENT “HAVE YOU BEEN TO WOODS LATELY? 72)IMMUNIZATION CONTRAINDICATED 73)lUMBAR PUNTURE- MOST COMMON S/E IS HEADACHE, TO BE MANAGED WITH BEDREST, HYDRATION, ANALGESICS, AND DECREASED ENVIROMENTAL STIMULI.
