According to ATI Edition 11.0, Meperidine is discouraged in treating pain for acute pancreatitis. There is a risk for seizures, especially in older adult clients. However, the rationale in Quiz 1 #12 says meperidine is the drug of choice instead of morphine sulfate.
There is a problem in seeing the correct answers. So now i cannot review my exam. I felt sad
