background image Possible Questions on the Exam Acetaminophen, anti-pyretic and analgesic but not anti-inflammatory  Is it safe to give salicylates/aspirin to kids with chicken pox and influenza?   No, it hides
Reye syndrome
Most common side effect of NSAIDs is GI irritation and bleeding Children generally need higher doses of immune suppressant cyclosporine to achieve 
the same therapeutic effect:  True
Women taking immune modulators may safely breast-feed:  false Spider and Snake bites that inject venom or toxins can be treated with antitoxins:  False, 
use antivenom
Vaccines are used to promote active immunity: false RHO immunoglobulin (RhoGAM) is an example of immune sera that is used to prevent 
pregnant women from developing sensitization to the Rh factor: True
Salicylates, aspirin, inhibits platelet grouping Recommended daily dose of Tylenol is 3000-4000mg, for one with liver issues the 
dosage is 2000 at max.
1.  How to read a drug label Look at the NDC Number Warnings Generic Name Brand Name Drug Dose Lot Number Administration Storage Information Drug Manufacturer Prescription Status Quantity Expiration Date 2. What is metabolism, and where does it take place? State any nursing 
considerations.
background image             *Absorption from the site of entry             *Distribution to the active site             *Biotransformation (metabolism) in the liver             *Excretion from the body (kidney) Biotransformation- process by which drugs are changed into new less active chemicals. 
This happens in the liver. Think of the liver as a detoxifier for your body, ridding it of 
unnecessary chemicals.  
Nursing considerations:  *Weight *Age *Gender *Physiological factors—diurnal rhythm, electrolyte balance, acid–base balance, hydration *Pathological factors—disease, hepatic dysfunction, renal dysfunction, gastrointestinal 
*dysfunction, vascular disorders, low blood pressure
*Genetic factors *Immunological factors—allergy *Psychological factors—placebo effect, health beliefs, compliance *Environmental factors—temperature, light, noise *Drug tolerance *Cumulating effects *Interactions 3. Define Pharmacotherapeutics. What are the key concerns? Clinical pharmacology—the branch of pharmacology that deals with drugs; chemicals 
that are used in medicine for the treatment, prevention, and diagnosis of disease in 
humans. 
1) Drugs’ effect on the body - pharmacodynamics 2) Body’s response to the drugs – pharmacokinetics 4. Define Pharmacogenomics, and why it would be useful. The study of genetically determined variations in the response to drugs. The test to find 
out what drugs are going to work for us before they are even given based on genetics.  It
is thought that, in the future, medical care and drug regimens could be individually 
designed based on each person’s unique genetic makeup.
