The physician has ordered Lugol’s solution for the client. The nurse understands that the primary reason for giving Lugol’s solution preoperatively is to:
A. decrease the risk of agranulocytosis postoperatively.
B. prevent tetany while the client is under general anesthesia.
C. reduce the size and vascularity of the thyroid and prevent hemorrhage.
D. potentiate the effect of the other preoperative medication so less medicine can be given while the client is under anesthesia.
