9 / 14

9. Nurse Paul is educating Clara, a 54-year-old patient with cardiovascular issues, on the causes of unstable angina. What should Nurse Paul mention as the primary cause of this condition?

πŸ’‘ Hint

Think about how vasodilators like organic nitrates work to relieve angina symptoms. Specifically, consider their impact on preload and blood pressure.

10 / 14

10. Nurse Emily is discussing medication options with Mark, a patient diagnosed with angina. She wants to inform him about the effects of organic nitrates on his cardiovascular system. What should Nurse Emily explain as the primary effects of this medication?
