    Aphasia is the inability to understand and interpret words or the inability to express oneself through speech due to damage or impairment to the areas of the brain responsible for language processing. It does not specifically refer to the loss of long-term memory or the inability to remember recent events, although memory issues can sometimes be associated with certain types of brain damage. The primary characteristic of aphasia is difficulty with language comprehension or production.

    If a patient does not have a bowel movement for more than _____ days, they are considered to be at an increased risk for developing constipation

    • A.

      1

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    C. 3
    Explanation
    If a patient does not have a bowel movement for more than 3 days, they are considered to be at an increased risk for developing constipation. This is because the normal frequency of bowel movements varies from person to person, but on average, most people have a bowel movement at least once every 1-3 days. If a person goes longer than this without a bowel movement, it may indicate a disruption in the normal digestive process and an increased risk for constipation.

  • 4. 

    Which one is not a level 5 vital sign?

    • A.

      Confusion

    • B.

      Blood pressure

    • C.

      Temperature

    • D.

      Pulse

    Correct Answer
    A. Confusion
    Explanation
    Confusion is not considered a level 5 vital sign because it is a symptom or a subjective measure of a person's mental state rather than a physical measurement. Level 5 vital signs typically include objective measurements that can be quantified, such as blood pressure, temperature, and pulse. These vital signs provide important information about a person's overall health and can help in diagnosing and monitoring various medical conditions.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Elderly patients are at highest risk for _____________.

    • A.

      Poisoning

    • B.

      Falls

    • C.

      Head injury

    • D.

      Depression

    Correct Answer
    B. Falls
    Explanation
    Elderly patients are at highest risk for falls due to factors such as decreased balance, muscle weakness, and declining vision. Falls can result in serious injuries such as fractures, head trauma, and even death. The aging process can also lead to a decrease in bone density, making elderly individuals more susceptible to fractures. Therefore, falls prevention strategies and interventions are crucial in order to reduce the risk of falls and promote the safety and well-being of elderly patients.

    Which is not a common sign or symptom of a heart attack?

    • A.

      Shortness of breath

    • B.

      Excessive sweating

    • C.

      Pain when palpating chest

    Correct Answer
    C. Pain when palpating chest
    Explanation
    Pain when palpating the chest is not a common sign or symptom of a heart attack. During a heart attack, individuals typically experience symptoms such as shortness of breath and excessive sweating. However, pain when palpating the chest refers to pain that occurs when pressing or touching the chest, which is not commonly associated with a heart attack. It is important to note that heart attack symptoms can vary among individuals, and it is always advisable to seek medical attention if experiencing any concerning symptoms.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which is not a sign of dehydration?

    • A.

      Weakness and thirst

    • B.

      Dried mucous membrane

    • C.

      Light diluted urine

    • D.

      Rapid pulse and low blood pressure

    Correct Answer
    C. Light diluted urine
    Explanation
    Light diluted urine is not a sign of dehydration because when a person is dehydrated, their body tries to conserve water by producing less urine. Dehydration typically leads to dark and concentrated urine, rather than light and diluted urine. The other options, including weakness and thirst, dried mucous membranes, and rapid pulse and low blood pressure, are all common signs of dehydration.

    Rate this question:

  • 8.

    • B.

      Yellowing of skin.

    • C.

      High urine output.

    Correct Answer
    A. Painful or frequent urination.
    Explanation
    The primary symptom of a UTI is difficulty urinating. This is because the infection in the urinary tract can cause inflammation and irritation, making it painful or uncomfortable to urinate. Other symptoms of a UTI may include a frequent urge to urinate, a burning sensation during urination, cloudy or strong-smelling urine, and lower abdominal pain. It is important to seek medical attention if you experience these symptoms, as UTIs can lead to more serious complications if left untreated.
