A nurse is caring for a client with agoraphobia. Which signs and symptoms would the nurse anticipate?

Select all that apply.
  1. panic attacks
  2. impaired short-term memory
  3. auditory hallucinations
  4. inability to leave home
Numbers 1 and 4 are correct.
Rationale: Agoraphobia is the fear of being in open spaces. Panic attacks and the fear of leaving home are symptoms associated with the disorder. Neither short-term memory nor auditory hallucinations are associated with agoraphobia.
