    1) option is correct

    Explanation:

    Aspirin is contraindicated in a patient who is on oral anticoagulant medication because aspirin intensifies the action of the anticoagulant, which results in bleeding Bleeding from shaving cuts may be difficult to control, so the patient should be advised to use an electric razor only Patients who are on oral anticoagulant medication have difficulty controlling bleeding from injuries or external hemorrhage The nurse should teach the patient techniques such as the application of pressure to control bleeding Dental extraction may cause bleeding, which may be uncontrollable for a patient who is on anticoagulant medication, so patients on such type of medication should inform the dentist before starting the treatment
