Here is the weekly question posted on the NCSBN Learning Extension:

Which action should a nurse plan to take for the a client prior to a kidney, ureter, bladder (KUB) radiograph test?

  1. Keep the client NPO for 8 hours before the examination
  2. Plan to have a fleets enema given prior to the examination
  3. Medicate the client with a prn antihistamine prior to the examination
  4. Take no special actions before this examination

The correct answer is: 4 – Take no special actions before this examination

KUB is an abdominal x-ray. The patient is placed in a supine position on the x-ray table, with the flat plate placed on the lower part of the back. The technician asks the patient to take a deep breath, and the x-ray is taken.
