Cancer and Oncology Q 158

A client with leukemia has neutropenia. Which of the following functions must be frequently assessed?
    A. Heart sounds
    B. Bowel sounds
    C. Breath sounds
    D. Blood pressure

Correct Answer: C. Breath sounds

Option C: Pneumonia, both viral and fungal, is a common cause of death in clients with neutropenia, so frequent assessment of respiratory rate and breath sounds is required.

Options A, B, and D: Although assessing blood pressure, bowel sounds, and heart sounds is important, it won’t help detect pneumonia.
