Welcome to the NBCRNA’s Question of the Week page. The question of the week (QOTW) serves as an extension of the NBCRNA’s CPCE Practice (practice exam) and allows for CRNA’s to become familiar with question types and content while testing their knowledge. Each week a new question will be posted on Facebook and Twitter, with the answer(s) and rationale provided here.

Rationale: When a patient is mechanically ventilated in the lateral position, overventilation occurs in the nondependent lung and gravity increases blood flow to the dependent lung.
