Correct

- Strict intake and output measurements

- Administer laxatives to prevent constipation

- Monitor for shock

- Provide humidified O2.

- Monitor ABGs

Rationale

In caring for a client with a chest injury, some nursing interventions include monitoring for shock, monitoring ABGs, and providing humidified O2. Laxatives are not indicated. Intake and output measurements do not have to be strict and electrolytes do not have to be monitored because of the chest injury.
