16 True/False questions

  1. The following are s/s of < Cortisol/Hydrocortisone, < Aldosterone, Addison's Disease:Sodium & water loss, < BP, hypotension, > HR (the response), the Pt craving Na.

          

  2. If the Pt craves Na it could be a s/s of this:Low blood Na lvl.

          

  3. re: Hyposecretion. This is an example of Primary:ACTH from the Pit is elevated (in an attempt to stim. the Adrenal Cortex to synthesize more hormones).

          

  4. This is a Mineralocorticoid that causes the kidneys to retain Na:Aldosterone

          

  5. This is how the body responds to <Cortisol/Aldosterone:Na leaves & water leaves as well.

          

  6. Hypoglycemia & lower blood sugar l/t this:Weakness, fatigue, wt. loss, confusion, psychosis, anorexia, n/v (which l/t electrolyte imbalances).

          

  7. Low Cortisol l/t this:Low blood Na lvl.

          

  8. Aldosterone release is stim. by this:Hypoglycemia & lower blood sugar

          

  9. Aldosterone release is stim. by this:Lower BP (d/t loss of blood or dehydration) (Low BP activates RAA in the kids l/t Angiotensin II l/t increased secretion of aldosterone.).

          

  10. Aldosterone release is stim. by this:Aldosterone non-release: When BP rises the atria secretes ANP. That inhibits the rel. of aldosterone (renin) l/t the kids elim. Na l/t water following the Na, l/t BP going down.

          

  11. This stims the metabolism/breakdown of carbs:Deficient ACTH fails to stim. Adrenal steroid synthesis.

          

  12. S/s of < Cortisol/Hydrocortisone are similar to this:S/s of <Aldosterone & Addison's Disease

          

  13. This can be Primary or Secondary:Deficient ACTH fails to stim. Adrenal steroid synthesis.

          

  14. Aldosterone release is stim. by this:Hypoglycemia & lower blood sugar

          

  15. This is an example of Secondary:<Cortisol/Hydrocortisone, <Aldosterone, & 'Addison's Disease'.

          

  16. This happens if there is no Aldosterone:Na leaves & water leaves as well.
