A 74-year-old man with a history of stable angina, asthma and hypertension is admitted to the hospital with substernal chest pain that was not relieved by three sublingual nitroglycerin tablets. In the emergency department, the patient is prescribed diltiazem and an IV nitroglycerin drip

New cards
70

What actions must the nurse take when administering IV nitroglycerin?​

The nurse should continuously monitor the patient's blood pressure and pulse.​

New cards
71

What teaching should the nurse provide about administration of the nitroglycerin patch?​

The nurse should instruct the patient to apply the nitroglycerin patch to hairless areas of skin and to rotate sites; normally patches are removed overnight to prevent tolerance.​

New cards
72

Based on knowledge of nitroglycerin sublingual tablets, what factors may have contributed to why the nitroglycerin tablets did not relieve angina pain for a patient?​

The nitroglycerin tablets may have been outdated or exposed to light, causing them to lose potency.​

New cards
73

The nurse must stress the importance of keeping nitroglycerin in its original brown glass bottle to protect it from air and light.​

New cards
74

The patient states that he guesses he will not need to get any more nitroglycerin sublingual tablets now that he is using the nitroglycerin patches.
