Question 1 :

The nurse is preparing to administer Tylenol to a client admitted with urination issues who also has difficulty sleeping (OSA).
Which interaction is most important for the nurse to implement before leaving the client?



Correct Answer: B

The client has difficulty sleeping due to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA),  and using a positive airway pressure device can help keep their airway  open and prevent dangerous pauses in breathing while they sleep 1.

Choice A is not the answer because elevating the head of the bed to a  45-degree angle may provide some relief for OSA, but it is not as  effective as using a positive airway pressure device 1. 

Choice C is not the answer because lifting and locking the side rails in  place is a safety measure but does not directly address the client’s  OSA 1. 

Choice D is not the answer because removing dentures or other oral  appliances may provide some relief for OSA, but it is not as effective  as using a positive airway pressure device 1.
