Answer to #1

A patient having an exercise tolerance test is kept NPO except for water, for 4 hours until after the test. The nurse should never hold the patient's heart medications before this test.

Answer to #2

Subcultures have characteristic patterns that distinguish them from the rest of the culture.

Answer to #3

The child is usually constipated with periumbilical pain unrelated to eating, defecation, or exercise.

Answer to #4

The way that an individual sits, stands, and moves is called posture. Posture has the potential to convey warmth and acceptance or distance and disinterest. An open posture is demonstrated with a relaxed stance with uncrossed arms and legs while facing the other individual. A slight shift in body position toward an individual, a smile, and direct eye contact are all consistent with open posturing and convey warmth and caring. Closed posture is a more formal, distant stance, generally with the arms, and possibly the legs, tightly crossed. A person will often interpret closed posture as disinterest, coldness, and even nonacceptance.

Answer to #5

RAP is often related to emotional factors in the child.

Answer to #6

A patient having a glucose tolerance test should be kept NPO for 12 hours before the test except for water consumption so that they can provide urine samples. The patient should empty their bladder before the examination.

Answer to #7

Dehiscence is separation of a surgical incision or rupture of a wound closure.
