NCLEX Hotspot Question Example: Digoxin Practice Question Pharmacology
This is an NCLEX hotspot practice question example about a nursing assessment for the drug Digoxin (Lanoxin). For this particular NCLEX practice question, you will have to identify what area on the diagram you will assess prior to administering Digoxin. Before a nurse administers Lanoxin, it is important to assess the apical pulse for 1 full minute. The apical pulse must be 60 beats per minute or greater. Therefore, to answer this question correctly you must identify on the diagram where the apical pulse is located on an adult patient. The apical pulse is located at the apex of the heart and is found at the 5th5th intercostal space midclavicular line. This location is also the point of maximum impulse. This video is part of a weekly NCLEX review series where I will be going over NCLEX-style questions with you. I will be helping you analyze and breakdown each question, and walk you through how to select the correct option. NCLEX questions require critical thinking and you must know how to use your nursing knowledge to gather the facts and analyze what the question is asking. NCLEX Hotspot Practice Question: A 55-year-old male patient is ordered by the physician to take Digoxin (Lanoxin) 0.25 mg by mouth daily. Prior to administering this medication, you will assess what area on the diagram? Watch the video for the correct answer and rationale.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Hyperkalemia refers to abnormally high levels of potassium in the blood. The ratio of INTRAcellular to EXTRAcellular potassium is important for generation of action potentials and is essential for normal functions of neurons, skeletal muscles and cardiac muscles. This is why potassium levels in the blood are strictly regulated within a narrow range between 3.5 and 5mmol/L. As the normal daily dietary intake of potassium varies widely and can be as much as 100mmol a day, the body must keep blood potassium levels within the normal limits. This is achieved by 2 mechanisms: - Excretion of potassium through the kidneys and intestines - Shifting of potassium from the extracellular fluid into the cells by the sodium/potassium pump. The pump is mainly regulated by hormones such as insulin and catecholamines. Hyperkalemia is defined as a serum potassium concentration HIGHER than 5mmol/L. Hyperkalemia may result from decreased excretion, excessive intake, or shift of potassium from INSIDE the cells to EXTRA-cellular space. The most common scenario is a RENAL INsufficiency combined with excessive potassium supplements OR administration of certain drugs. Impaired kidney function is most prominent Mild hyperkalemia is often without symptoms, some patients may develop muscle weakness. Slow or chronic increase in potassium levels is less dangerous, as the kidneys eventually adapt by excreting more potassium. Sudden onset and rapid progression of hyperkalemia can be fatal. Primary cause of mortality is the effect of potassium on cardiac functions. As potassium levels INcrease in the EXTRAcellular space, the MAGNITUDE of potassium gradient across the cell membrane is REDUCED, and so is the ABSOLUTE value of the resting membrane potential. Membrane voltage becomes less negative, moving closer to the threshold potential, making it EASIER to initiate an action potential. The effect this has on excitability of myocytes, however, is complex. While initial changes seem to increase myocyte excitability; further rise of potassium has the OPPOSITE effect. This is because the value of membrane potential at the onset of an action potential DETERMINES the number of voltage-gated sodium channels activated during depolarization. As this value becomes less negative in hyperkalemia, the number of available sodium channels DEcreases, resulting in a SLOWER influx of sodium and subsequently SLOWER impulse conduction. ECG changes produced by hyperkalemia follow a typical pattern that correlates with serum potassium levels: peaked T-wave, P wave widens and flattens, PR interval lengthens, QRS complex widens and eventually blends with T-wave. Diagnosis on the basis of ECG alone very difficult. Acute hyperkalemia must be suspected in any patient having new bradycardia or conduction block, especially in those with renal problems. Severe hyperkalemia is treated in 3 steps: - Calcium infusion is given to rapidly REVERSE conduction abnormalities. - Insulin to stimulate the sodium/potassium pump, promoting INTRA-cellular shift - Hemodialysis to remove potassium

You need to refer to your own medical director, teachers and protocols for specific treatment information. It is your responsibility to know how best to treat your patient in your jurisdiction. Furosemide (Lasix) - Loop Diuretics Generic Name: Furosemide Brand Name: Lasix Furosemide also known as Lasix is a loop diuretic commonly use to treat fluid retention and edema. Which can be associated with Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), cirrhosis of the liver, and many kidney disorders. It is also sometimes use to treat hypertension alone or in combination with other anti-hypertensive drugs. Diuretics are medications that increases the amount of water that passes through the kidneys as urine, thus, it is often called water pill. Lasix belongs to the group known as Loop diuretics. There a few types of diuretics and loop diuretics are just one type. It works by interfering with the sodium, potassium and chloride symporter. A symporter is a protein membrane that manages the transport of molecules across a cell membrane. The symporter that lasix interacts with is found in the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle. What it does is………. inhibits the reabsorption of salt (Na+) and Chloride (Cl-). Since the Salt and Chloride will be leaving the body system through the loop of henle this means that water will also follow…. causing more water pass through the kidney. Which will ultimately mean, less fluid remaining in the blood stream. Once Lasix is received the system will then compensate the loss by absorbing any fluid accumulated in the tissues, such as in the lungs or legs, back to the blood stream. This will cause more fluid to be in the blood stream. Which once again pass through the kidney, which will also be excreted in the urine, since the loop diuretic inhibits its reabsorption. This mechanism, is what makes loop diuretics a treatment for fluid retention also known as edema. It can therefore, ease symptoms of edema such as breathlessness caused by congestion of fluid in the lungs which patients diagnosed with CHF, cirrhosis of the liver, nephrotic syndrome and other edematous states may encounter. Lasix is available in forms that can be taken orally and intravenously. When taken intravenously, it is considered to be twice as strong. Parenteral or intravenous Furosemide is indicated when a fast acting and an intense diuresis is needed such as in acute pulmonary edema and cerebral edema. It also indicated when oral therapy is not possible because of problem with absorption in the intestine or for other reasons. Parenteral administration should be observed only in hospital or outpatient clinics. However, in cases of emergency that furosemide should be given right away outside hospital setting, recommended doses should be closely adhered to and patient must be closely monitored. Contraindication: Furosemide should not be taken if your patient cannot urinate. Severe Hypokalemia - is a major contraindication. This means low potassium. Lasix can cause a dramatic decrease in potassium level which could cause lethal cardiac arrhythmias Other contraindications include: Hypotension or low blood pressure Lasix should be used with extreme caution for patients who have a diagnosis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus because it may May

Lithium NCLEX Question: Lithium levels
This video is about Lithium Question Number 1 QUESTION #1 A client receiving lithium therapy for the treatment of his bipolar disorder has a lithium level of 0.85 mEq/L. The appropriate nursing action is: A. Notify the physician immediately B. Observe the client for signs of toxicity C. Record the laboratory result in the client’s chart D. Hold the next dose of lithium  It is the nurse’s responsibility to review pertinent lab values before administering Lithium, especially, if the lithium dose is fairly new for the patient.  The nurse should know where to look up the lithium normal and critical lab values levels. This information might be found in a drug reference book, or on an online drug reference site. The nurse should become very adept at looking up drug information for all of the medications administered.  The normal levels are usually found on the patient’s lab report and often the critical levels are also noted here. The Answer to this question is C, because the patient’s laboratory result of lithium is within the therapeutic range of 0.6 – 1.5 mEq/L.

VIVO full demo by Ralf Schink at FMM
The new "VIVO" digital Piano line-up from DEXIBELL use a completely new technology called T2L (True to Life), based on interaction between Sampling and Modelling methods. Aesthetic of products is very seductive thanks to the authentic Italian Design. The line-up is called “VIVO” because they are the first digital instruments "ALIVE", reacting to player articulation. There are many components such as sympathetic resonances, harmonics, noises, staccato sounds, timbre variances, real Sustain Pedal simulation etc. that build-up the total sound using 320 Oscillators with an unlimited notes polyphony. The quality standard has been raised-up to 24 bit - 48KHz with an average of 5 times longer ever recorded samples (15“ on lower piano notes), obtaining a dynamic range 256 times higher if compared with today available digital musical instruments and having an astonishing vitality of harmonics. Sounds are recorded with holophonic method for an amazing 3D listening experience. You can enjoy the best Grand Pianos, Upright Pianos, Vintage Electric Pianos and many more Sounds Categories with the best quality and playability ever heard. 3 keyboard parts, Reverb with 24 different types, Master Eq, and 6 independent DSP effects (2 x each single part) create a massive performance tool at home and on stage. Sound and effect recall use the new "Seamless Changes" technology to allow smooth transition from one sound to another, including its effects, even in “Pedal Sustain-on” condition. Internal Sound System (in amplified models) gives an unbelievable perception of sound, using Passive Subwoofer, Far & Near field speakers with reflective technic. Digitally controlled amplifier (in amplified models), using “multi band compressor”, “variable psychoacoustic equalizer”, “digital bass enhancer”, reproduces the real level of an Acoustic Grand Piano reaching over 113 dB of SPL (on H-7 model). Bluetooth audio streaming is available to jam along with your favourite song list or just to use “VIVO” piano as an excellent wireless audio system for your mobile or tablet. All Piano models are equipped with an Organic Led graphic display for the best possible contrast and visibility-angle under any light condition. DEXIBELL already conforms to the level "ErP VI", i.e. consuming less than 0.2W in “stand-by" mode, a new legislation that will be introduced only in California from February 2016. Europe and the rest of the world will not introduce this legislation at least for the next two years but DEXIBELL has already high efficiency and sustainable consumption for which you can claim. Line-up consists in Home, Portable and Stage models at 88 and 73 keys (and down to 10 kg on S-3 model for extreme portability) with same sound quality along all the line-up models.
Bipolar Medication:  Lithium
I hope you enjoyed the video! Here is a link to test your knowledge: http://empowern.com/2015/08/bipolar-medication-lithium/ Lithium belongs to the drug class: antimanic agents and it is sold under the US brand names: Lithobid, Eskalith, Eskalith-CR. More than 5.7 million American adults or 2.6 percent of the population age 18 or older in any given year have bipolar disorder. Lithium is helping some of this American. It has become one of the first and widely used psychiatric drugs for the treatment of bipolar disorder in the United States, since its approval in the 1970s. It also has become one of the most studied psychiatric medications. Indication: Lithium is an effective drug for bipolar disorder as its properties help to prevent, as well as stabilize, manic-depressive mood swings that occur in this psychiatric condition. By controlling mood disorder, it also reduces the risk of suicide. This is an advantage of lithium that is lacking in some other drugs. But it is more effective in preventing depression than it is in preventing mania. However, it needs time to develop and reach its ideal therapeutic level in the body before it induces any effects. Usually it takes about 1-3 weeks, however, in the case of sudden or acute bipolar episodes, if lithium hasn’t reached its optimum level in the client’s body, it can be prescribed along with other medications for effectiveness. Lithium can also be prescribed for other psychiatric disorders besides bipolar disorder. It can be useful when other drugs fail in conditions such as schizophrenia, major depression, and certain psychiatric problems in children. Mechanism of Action: Although lithium had been used for more than 50 years in the treatment of bipolar disorder, its mechanism of action was unknown; until 1998. Scientists didn’t know the cause of mood swings in bipolar disorder either. A study made in 1998, by a group of researchers from Wisconsin University shed light on how lithium works and why it is effective. It was concluded that lithium acts on certain nerve cells in the brain and the receptors of the neurotransmitter glutamate. Lithium has a dual effect on these receptors, and using this, it helps to regulate the level of glutamate between cells, preventing it from reaching too high or too low concentrations. According to the director of this research, Dr. Lowell Hokin, who is also a school professor of pharmacology at Wisconsin University; too little glutamate between neurons cause depression, while excessive amounts of glutamate cause mania. But it is also believed that there are more causes and factors involved in these disorders besides the level of glutamate, but nevertheless, the study has been very helpful as it has uncovered the fundamental causes of bipolar disorder.

Woodland flowers: Digitalis purpurea (foxglove, common foxglove, purple foxglove or lady's glove)
Plant profile: Digitalis purpurea (foxglove, common foxglove, purple foxglove or lady's glove) is a species of flowering plant in the plantain family Scrophulariaceae, native to and widespread throughout most of temperate Europe. It is also naturalised in parts of North America and some other temperate regions. The plants are well known as the original source of the heart medicine digoxin (also called digitalis or digitalin). Digitalis purpurea is an herbaceous biennial or short-lived perennial plant. The leaves are spirally arranged, simple, 10–35 cm (3.9–13.8 in) long and 5–12 cm (2–5 in) broad, and are covered with gray-white pubescent and glandular hairs, imparting a woolly texture. The foliage forms a tight rosette at ground level in the first year. The flowering stem develops in the second year, typically 1–2 m (3.3–6.6 ft) tall, sometimes longer. The flowers are arranged in a showy, terminal, elongated cluster, and each flower is tubular and pendent. The flowers are typically purple, but some plants, especially those under cultivation, may be pink, rose, yellow, or white. The inside surface of the flower tube is heavily spotted. The flowering period is early summer, sometimes with additional flower stems developing later in the season. The plant is frequented by bees, which climb right inside the flower tube to gain the nectar within. The fruit is a capsule which splits open at maturity to release the numerous tiny 0.1-0.2 mm seeds. The plant is popular as a garden subject, and numerous cultivars have been developed with a range of colours from white through pink to purple, such as "Dalmatian Purple". Cultivated forms often show flowers completely surrounding the central spike, in contrast to the wild form, where the flowers only appear on one side. D. purpurea is easily grown from seed or purchased as potted plants in the spring. Haringey North London Tree Surgeons and Wildlife Gardening channel.
