    Analgesia refers to a state where an individual does not feel pain, even though they may have a painful condition.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Anti-pyretics are medications that are specifically designed to reduce fevers. They work by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals that play a role in the body's immune response and can cause fever. By reducing the production of prostaglandins, anti-pyretics help to lower body temperature and alleviate the symptoms associated with fever, such as chills and sweating. Therefore, the statement "anti-pyretics do not reduce fevers" is incorrect.
