IV Fluid Quiz

hypertonic, hypotonic & isotonic fluids

QuestionAnswer
When the cell presents with the same concentration on the inside and outside with no shifting of fluids this is called? A. Hypotonic B. Hypertonic C. Isotonic D. Osmosis Isotonic
Which of the following is not a hypertonic fluid? A. 3% Saline B. D5W C. 10% Dextrose in Water (D10W) D. 5% Dextrose in Lactated Ringer’s D%W
What type of fluid would a patient with severe hyponatremia most likely be started on? A. Hypotonic B. Hypertonic C. Isotonic D. Colloid Hypertonic
When administering a hypertonic solution the nurse should closely watch for? A. Signs of dehydration B. Pulmonary Edema C. Fluid volume deficient D. Increased Lactate level The answer is B: Pulmonary Edema Pulmonary Edema
A patient with cerebral edema would most likely be order what type of solution? A. 3% Saline B. 0.9% Normal Saline C. Lactated Ringer’s D. 0.225% Normal Saline 3% Saline. A patient with cerebral edema would be ordered a HYPERTONIC solution to decrease brain swelling. The solution would remove water from the brain cells back into the intravascular system to be excreted. 3% Saline is the only hypertonic option.
_______ solutions cause cell dehydration and help increase fluid in the extracellular space. A. Hypotonic B. Osmosis C. Isotonic D. Hypertonic Hypertonic
D5W solutions are sometimes considered a hypotonic solution as well as an isotonic solution because after the body metabolizes the dextrose the solution acts as a hypotonic solution. True False TRUE D5W is classified as an isotonic fluid but after administration the body metabolizes the dextrose and the fluid left over is a hypotonic solution.
Which solution below is NOT a hypertonic solution? A. 5% Dextrose in 0.9% Saline B. 5% Saline C. 5% Dextrose in Lactated Ringer’s D. 0.33% saline (1/3 NS) 0.33% saline (1/3 NS)
Which patient below would NOT be a candidate for a hypotonic solution? A. Patient with increased intracranial pressure B. Patient with Diabetic Ketoacidosis C. Patient experiencing Hyperosmolar Hyperglycemia D. All of the options are correct Patient with increased intracranial pressure
Which condition below could lead to cell lysis, if not properly monitored? A. Isotonicity B. Hypertonicity C. Hypotonicity D. None of the options are correct Hypertonicity
________ fluids remove water from the extracellular space into the intracellular space. A. Hypotonic B. Hypertonic C. Isotonic D. Colloids Hypotonic
Isotonic fluids cause shifting of water from the extracellular space to the intracellular space. True False FALSE Hypotonic fluids cause shifting of water from the extracellular space to the intracellular space
A patient is being admitted with dehydration due to nausea and vomiting. Which fluid would you expect the patient to be started on? A. 5% Dextrose in 0.9% Saline B. 0.33% saline C. 0.225% saline D. 0.9% Normal Saline 0.9% Normal Saline
The doctor orders an isotonic fluid for a patient. Which of the following is not an isotonic fluid? A. 0.9% Normal Saline B. Lactated Ringer’s C. 0.45% Saline D. 5% Dextrose in 0.225% saline 0.45% Saline
