Ans: D
Feedback:
Fluid balance determines the concentration of lithium in the blood and thus the client's risk for toxicity. Therefore, imbalanced fluid volume is a priority. Self-care deficit, disturbed sleep pattern, and imbalanced nutrition also may apply, but imbalanced fluid volume would be the priority.
