正确答案:
1. pimple on the lower back
解释 :
A pimple close to the incision site may be reason for the surgeon to cancel the surgical procedure because it increases the risk of infection. If the client had an abnormal ECG, the nurse would notify the anesthesiologist who will be administering the anesthesia. The anesthesiologist is the decision-maker regarding the implications of the anesthesia on the cardiac system. The surgical team should be notified of the client’s hearing disability, but the surgeon, who has already met the client, does not need to be notified. The surgical team should be notified of the client’s allergy to iodine, and it should be documented in all the appropriate places, but the surgeon would not need to be notified in advance of the surgical procedure.
