The answer is 3, 4
Rationale:
1. The room temperature should be kept cool, and the nurse should provide a fan to move air into the room.
2. Visitors are appropriate, but stimulation of the patient is not recommended or desired.
3. Bed coverings should be nonrestrictive and light.
4. Isotonic IV fluids will be used for fluid and electrolyte replacement.
5. Hyperglycemia is commonly treated with insulin, so carbohydrate intake should not be increased. Nutritional consults are necessary.
