A Trivia Quiz About Tube Feeding - Quiz

Tube feeding is a medical assistant rendered to premature babies, patients suffering from digestive issues. This feeding is aided by a medical expert to feed patients for a short period of time. In case of nutritional assistance, excess supplementation is provided as well as getting rid of the inability to swallow. It is used for long life because of chronic disabilities.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these organs is the nasogastric feeding tube inserted?  

    • A.

      Mouth 

    • B.

      Nose

    • C.

      Stomach 

    • D.

      Vein

    Correct Answer
    B. Nose
    Explanation
    The nasogastric feeding tube is inserted through the nose. This tube is used to deliver nutrition and medication directly into the stomach. Inserting the tube through the nose allows for a more direct route to the stomach, bypassing the mouth and throat. This method is commonly used in medical settings when a patient is unable to eat or swallow normally.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which feeding tube is used when feeding through stomach is not tolerated? 

    • A.

      Jejunostomy feeding 

    • B.

      Gastrostomy feeding 

    • C.

      Nasojejunal feeding 

    • D.

      Nasogastric feeding 

    Correct Answer
    C. Nasojejunal feeding 
    Explanation
    Nasojejunal feeding is used when feeding through the stomach is not tolerated. This method involves inserting a feeding tube through the nose, down the esophagus, and into the jejunum (the part of the small intestine). By bypassing the stomach, nasojejunal feeding allows for the delivery of nutrients directly into the small intestine, which may be necessary if the stomach cannot handle the digestion and absorption of food.

  • 3. 

    Which of these nutritional needs is not covered by tube feeding?

    • A.

      Low protein needs 

    • B.

      High energy requirement 

    • C.

      High protein needs 

    • D.

      Lactose intolerance

    Correct Answer
    A. Low protein needs 
    Explanation
    Tube feeding is a method of delivering nutrients directly into the stomach or small intestine through a tube. It is typically used when a person is unable to eat or swallow food normally. Tube feeding can provide a high energy requirement and meet high protein needs, as it can deliver a concentrated formula that is rich in calories and protein. However, tube feeding may not be suitable for individuals with low protein needs, as the formula used may not provide enough protein for their specific requirements. Therefore, low protein needs are not covered by tube feeding. Lactose intolerance is not mentioned in the question and therefore cannot be determined as a nutritional need covered or not covered by tube feeding.

  • 4. 

    Whose work is to monitor patient's tube feeding?

    • A.

      Dentist 

    • B.

      Pharmacist 

    • C.

      Dietitian 

    • D.

      Cardiologist 

    Correct Answer
    C. Dietitian 
    Explanation
    A dietitian is responsible for monitoring a patient's tube feeding. They have specialized knowledge in nutrition and are trained to create and manage personalized meal plans for patients. As tube feeding requires careful monitoring of the patient's nutritional needs and progress, a dietitian is the most suitable healthcare professional for this task. Dentists focus on oral health, pharmacists on medication management, and cardiologists on heart-related issues, none of which directly relate to monitoring tube feeding.

    • A.

      Best feeding 

    • B.

      Artificial feeding

      Enteral feeding 

    • D.

      Pipe feeding 

    Correct Answer
    C. Enteral feeding 
    Explanation
    Tube feeding is also known as enteral feeding. This method involves delivering nutrition directly into the gastrointestinal tract through a tube, bypassing the mouth and esophagus. It is commonly used when a person is unable to consume food orally or has difficulty swallowing. Tube feeding can be done through various types of tubes, such as nasogastric, gastrostomy, or jejunostomy tubes. This method ensures that the individual receives the necessary nutrients and hydration to maintain their health and well-being.

  • 6. 

    Which of these measures is diameter of feeding tube measured? 

    • A.

      German units

    • C.

      French units 

    • D.

      English units 

    Correct Answer
    C. French units 
    Explanation
    The diameter of a feeding tube is measured in French units. French units are commonly used in medical settings to measure the size of medical equipment, including feeding tubes. The French scale is a unit of measurement that represents the outer diameter of a tube. It is often used to determine the appropriate size of a feeding tube for a patient.

  • 7. 

    Which of these conditions does not require tube feeding?

      Prematurity 

    • D.

      Cancer 

    Correct Answer
    A. Sore throat 
    Explanation
    Sore throat does not require tube feeding because it is a temporary condition that typically resolves on its own within a few days. Tube feeding is usually necessary for individuals who are unable to swallow or have difficulty swallowing due to more severe and long-term conditions such as prematurity, cancer, or other medical issues. Tube feeding provides necessary nutrition and hydration when oral intake is not possible or insufficient.

  • 8. 

    Where is tube feeding practiced in hospitals?

    • A.

      Ward 

    • B.

      Reception 

    • C.

      Intensive care unit 

    • D.

      Theatre 

    Correct Answer
    C. Intensive care unit 
    Explanation
    Tube feeding is practiced in the intensive care unit of hospitals because this is where patients with severe medical conditions or those who are unable to eat or digest food normally are typically treated. The intensive care unit provides close monitoring and specialized care for patients who require tube feeding to ensure they receive the necessary nutrition and hydration. The ward, reception, and theatre areas of hospitals are not typically equipped to provide this level of care and specialized feeding.

      Silicone 

    • D.

      Rubber 

    Correct Answer
    C. Silicone 
    Explanation
    Silicone is the correct answer because it is a commonly used material in making feeding tubes. Silicone is a flexible and durable material that is biocompatible, meaning it is safe to use inside the body. It is also resistant to heat and chemicals, making it suitable for medical applications. Silicone feeding tubes are preferred because they are soft, comfortable, and easy to clean. Additionally, silicone has a smooth surface that helps prevent the buildup of bacteria and allows for easy insertion and removal of the tube.

    Correct Answer
    A. Skin 
    Explanation
    A feeding tube is not inserted into the skin. Feeding tubes are typically inserted through either the mouth or the nose and then advanced down into the stomach. They are used to provide nutrition and hydration to individuals who are unable to eat or drink normally. The skin is not involved in the insertion or placement of a feeding tube.
