Which of the following create a higher risk for digoxin
toxicity? Both the cause and the reason for it must be correct.

Older adults because of reduced renal function
Administration of aldosterone antagonist
diuretics because of decreased potassium levels
Taking an antacid for gastroesophageal reflux
disease because it increases the absorption of digoxin
Doses between 0.25 and 0.5 mg/day

Question 3. Question
Juanita had a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and was on heparin

Question 10. Question

Help with rate control

increased risk for myocardial infarction in women?

Question 20. Question
