Scenario:

Fluid & Electrolytes: Fluid Volume Overload

Jesse Thompson is an elderly Native American who had been residing at a nursing home. She was admitted to the hospital four days ago with dehydration. She has been receiving aggressive fluid replacement and now is exhibiting signs of fluid overload (as per labs, assessment, and I&O). She takes Lasix and Potassium each day PO, but needs clarification as to why she would need additional Lasix and Potassium IV since she came to the hospital with dehydration.
