The answer to question 1

Answer: 3

1. The client would need to refrain from getting the eye wet in the shower.
2. Protein does not prevent cataracts, but a high glucose level does.
3. The nurse stresses that the client should refrain from strenuous activity, coughing, and sneezing, which can increase intraocular pressure.
4. The eye that has had surgery will be patched. Glasses are not needed, but may be worn, although the client will be instructed to refrain from reading after surgery until healing has occurred.

The answer to question 2

Answer: 2

1. The client with external otitis should be instructed to protect the ears from water until complete healing has occurred.
2. The client should use ear plugs during swimming.
3. The client should use a hair dryer on low setting to dry the ears after swimming.
4. The client should not use cotton balls or swabs to clean the ear.

The answer to question 3

Answer: 3

1. The pain medication that will be used does not usually cause vomiting.
2. The smell of food should not affect the client negatively.
3. Alterations in equilibrium can cause nausea and vomiting.
4. Decongestion relief reduces imbalances in the equilibrium, thus reducing nausea and vomiting. However, the normal swelling that occurs with any surgery could produce nausea until the swelling is relieved.
