Cyanosis

Elevated blood pressure

Peripheral edema

Elevated blood pressure

2

A patient admitted with community-acquired pneumonia has been receiving oxygen therapy for several days. Which of the following assessment findings indicates an adverse effect of oxygen therapy?

Elevated heart rate

Copious respiratory secretions

Cracks in the oral mucosa

Poor skin turgor

Cracks in the oral mucosa

3

A nurse is providing discharge teaching to a patient who will continue oxygen therapy at home. The nurse should instruct the patient that turning the knob on the oxygen flow meter all the way to the right...

provides a minimal oxygen flow.

stops the flow of oxygen.

provides the maximal oxygen flow.

starts the flow of oxygen.

stops the flow of oxygen.

4

A patient who is prescribed oxygen therapy 24hr/day is concerned about being confined to bed. Which of the following should the nurse do to provide mobility for this patient?

Make sure the patient has up to 50 feet of connecting tubing.

Suggest rest periods between activities of daily living.

Allow the patient to remove the oxygen-delivery device periodically.

Make sure the patient has up to 50 feet of connecting tubing.

5

apply petroleum jelly around and inside the nares.

make sure there is adequate condensation in the tubing.

reposition the elastic band frequently.

11

Administering oxygen therapy with a nonrebreather mask has which of the following advantages?

Offers the highest oxygen concentration of the low-flow systems

Is designed for safety once the mask's valves and flaps are sealed

Provides oxygen concentrations of 40% to 60%

Incorporates a design that requires minimal monitoring of the patient

Offers the highest oxygen concentration of the low-flow systems
