Test your Knowledge
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 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.
How did you do on this week's QOTW?
Answers: C, D
Rationale: The goals of one-lung ventilation include maintaining oxygenation and preventing atelectasis. Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction impairment, ventilation-perfusion mismatch, and increase in pulmonary vascular resistance are all side effects (not goals) of one-lung ventilation.
