Pharmacology for Nurses, 6e (Adams)

Chapter 1   Introduction to Pharmacology

 

  • A nurse is reviewing key events in the history of pharmacology with a student nurse. Which student comment indicates an understanding?
  1. “Early researchers used themselves as test subjects.”
  2. “A primary goal of pharmacology is to prevent disease.”
  3. “Penicillin is one of the initial drugs isolated from a natural source.”
  4. “Pharmacologists began synthesizing drugs in the laboratory in the nineteenth century.”

Answer:  1

Explanation:

  1. Some early researchers, like Friedrich Serturner, used themselves as test subjects.
  2. An early goal of pharmacology was to relieve human suffering.
  3. Initial drugs isolated from complex mixtures included morphine, colchicine, curare, and cocaine, but not penicillin.
  4. By the twentieth century, pharmacologists could synthesize drugs in the laboratory.

Learning Outcome:  1-1 Identify key events in the history of pharmacology.

MNL Learning Outcome:  1.1 Examine the relationship between medicine and pharmacology.

 

 

  • A student nurse asks a nursing instructor why anatomy and physiology as well as microbiology are required courses when the student only wants to learn about pharmacology. What is the best response by the instructor?
    1. “Because pharmacology is an outgrowth of those subjects.”
    2. “You must learn all, since all of those subjects are part of the curriculum.”
    3. “Knowledge of all those subjects will prepare you to administer medication.”
    4. “An understanding of those subjects is essential to understand pharmacology.”

Answer:  4

Explanation:

  1. Pharmacology is an outgrowth of anatomy, physiology, and microbiology, but this is not the most essential reason for the nurse to learn them.
  2. The nurse must learn anatomy, physiology, and microbiology to understand pharmacology, not because they are part of the curriculum.
  3. Knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and microbiology prepares the nurse to understand pharmacology, not to provide care such as administration of medications.
  4. It is essential for the nurse to have a broad knowledge base of many sciences in order to learn pharmacology.
