Some quick and easy memorization facts to help you with your studying!

1. Morphine masks Increasing Intracranial pressure. Therefore if you have a patient come in with head trauma or any suspected neuro issues, do NOT give them morphine.

2. Prednisone is a steroid and has a hyperglycemic side effect. The second most significant side effect is Immune Deficiency.  For example, if a patient taking Prednisone is placed with another patient who is febrile, that would be bad nursing judgement.
