The nurse would conclude that hypomagnesemia has not resolved if which of the following neuromuscular signs is still present after treatment?

1. Paralysis
2. Tetany
3. Flaccidity
4. Decreased reflexes

Explanation

Effects of hypomagnesemia are mainly due to increased neuromuscular responses. Paralysis, flaccidity, and decreased reflexes may be present with hypermagnesemia. Recall that options that have similarities are not likely to be correct. Examine the options from the viewpoint of neurological stimulation. Eliminate each of the incorrect responses because they reflect abnormally low activity of the nervous system.
