4. A 6-year-old who complains of a sore throat. The caretaker reports the child has had two episodes of vomiting.

Strategy: Determine the most unstable patient.

(1) CORRECT— significant risk for dehydration and acidosis; an infant’s rate of fluid exchange is significantly higher than an adult’s, and the infant’s metabolism rate is nearly twice that of an adult’s; acid forms more rapidly in infants and may lead to acidosis; kidneys are not mature at this age, cannot adequately concentrate urine to conserve water

(2) may have dislocation or fracture; evaluate neurovascular status of the affected extremity and ask the patient’s caregiver to report changes while awaiting further evaluation

(3) likely flushed as a result of the fever; request an order for Tylenol or Motrin if the child had not received either before arrival and ask the caregiver to report changes in the patient’s condition while awaiting further evaluation

(1) respiratory status is stable at present, though additional interventions may be required if the patient’s oxygen saturation decreases further; continue to monitor the patient closely

(2) symptom management is important for patient comfort and to insure the patient’s ability to drink the contrast in preparation for the test; respiratory status takes precedence

(3) CORRECT— assessment of respiratory status is required; acute onset of anemia and/or disease may cause SOB, dyspnea, and/or chest pain; oxygen supplementation often indicated prophylactically even if asymptomatic

(4) symptom management is important for patient comfort; respiratory status takes precedence

(1) nausea may prevent the client from drinking the oral contrast; should be addressed, but allergies to IV dye or seafood are more important

(2) CORRECT— allergies to iodine, seafood, or dye can cause an allergic reaction

(3) rarely a concern for clients undergoing CT scan; more of a concern for client undergoing magnetic resonance imaging

(4) nurse does need to follow up, but the priority is to follow up on the client with the potential allergic reaction
