NCLEX Practice Questions And Answers. Latest 2020, A Graded.Question 1: (see full question) When performing an abdominal assessment, the nurse uses a different order of techniques than with other sy... stems. Which of the following represents this order You selected: Inspection, auscultation, percussion, palpation Correct Explanation: In an abdominal assessment, start with inspection, then auscultation, percussion, and palpation. This is the preferred approach because palpation and percussion before auscultation may alter the sounds heard. (less) Reference: Taylor, C., et al. Fundamentals of Nursing, 8th ed. Philadelphia: Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins; 2015, Chapter 25: Health Assessment, p. 658. Chapter 25: Health Assessment - Page 658 ________________________________________ Question 2: (see full question) The nurse in post-anesthesia recovery (PAR) is caring for a 27-year-old client following an appendectomy. Twenty minutes after receiving 4 mg of intravenous (IV) morphine for abdominal pain, the client continues to report abdominal discomfort and requests more morphine. Which action by the nurse is best? You selected: Observe the abdomen for distention and rigidity. Correct Explanation: Continued abdominal pain after administration of IV morphine is an unexpected occurrence and requires further assessment by the nurse to rule out peritonitis or internal bleeding by observing the abdomen for distention and rigidity. Administration of more morphine could mask the cause of the abdominal pain and delay diagnosis of a possible postoperative complication. Applying heat to the abdomen would increase blood flow to the area and potentially increase pain or internal bleeding. Positioning the client in a knees-flexed position may relieve the discomfort, but an assessment is needed before any intervention is implemented. (less) Reference: Taylor, C. R.
