9. A nurse is caring for a client with preeclampsia. Identify two (2) findings indicating a complication of preeclampsia with severe features.
Answer: Two findings indicating a complication of preeclampsia with severe features are high blood pressure and protein in the urine. Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs during pregnancy and is characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine. In severe cases, preeclampsia can lead to complications such as organ damage, blood clotting disorders, and reduced blood flow to the placenta. High blood pressure and protein in the urine are two signs that the preeclampsia is worsening and that the client may be at risk for these complications. It is important for the nurse to closely monitor the client’s blood pressure and urine output, and to report any changes to the healthcare team.

13. A nurse is caring for a client experiencing postpartum hemorrhage. What interventions should be implemented?
Answer: If a nurse is caring for a client experiencing postpartum hemorrhage, several interventions should be implemented. The first and most important intervention is to control the bleeding by applying direct pressure to the uterus. This can be done by placing the client in a supine position and pressing firmly on the uterus with the palms of the hands. In addition to controlling the bleeding, the nurse should also monitor the client’s vital signs, including their heart rate, blood pressure, and level of consciousness. The nurse should be prepared to administer oxygen and medications to increase the client’s blood pressure if necessary. It is also important for the nurse to provide emotional support and education to the client and their family during this difficult time.
