COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is used as an umbrella term to describe what is known as progressive lung diseases like emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory asthma. What do you know about this condition? Take our quiz and find out now.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many bronchodilators are commonly used?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      3

    Correct Answer
    D. 3
    Explanation
    Three bronchodilators are commonly used. Bronchodilators are medications that help relax the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe. There are three main types of bronchodilators: beta-agonists, anticholinergics, and methylxanthines. Beta-agonists work by relaxing the smooth muscles in the airways, anticholinergics block the action of acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter that causes constriction of the airways), and methylxanthines relax the airway muscles and reduce inflammation. These three types of bronchodilators are commonly prescribed to treat conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

    What's an example of a bronchodilator?

    • A.

      Methylxantines

    • B.

      Metiramed

    • C.

      Metirax

    • D.

      Antramex

    Correct Answer
    A. Methylxantines
    Explanation
    Methylxanthines are a type of bronchodilator. They work by relaxing the muscles in the airways, allowing them to open up and improve airflow. Examples of methylxanthines include theophylline and aminophylline. These medications are commonly used in the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to relieve symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing.

    What is the main consequence of using corticosteroids in the treatment of asthma?

    • A.

      It reduces airway inflammation

    • B.

      It aggravates inflammation

    • C.

      It reduces risks of asphyxia

    • D.

      It reduces risks of developing allergies

    Correct Answer
    A. It reduces airway inflammation
    Explanation
    The main consequence of using corticosteroids in the treatment of asthma is that it reduces airway inflammation. Corticosteroids are commonly prescribed for asthma because they have anti-inflammatory properties, which help to reduce swelling and inflammation in the airways. This can lead to improved breathing and reduced symptoms for individuals with asthma.

    What's an example of an ICS?

    • A.

      Fluticasone

    • B.

      Flutasione

    • C.

      Fructiose

    • D.

      Fltutitone

    Correct Answer
    A. Fluticasone
    Explanation
    Fluticasone is an example of an ICS (Inhaled Corticosteroid). ICS medications are commonly used to treat asthma and other respiratory conditions by reducing inflammation in the airways. Fluticasone works by decreasing swelling and irritation in the lungs, making it easier to breathe. It is often prescribed as a maintenance medication for long-term control of asthma symptoms.

    What is used during a triple therapy in patients with severe COPD?

    • A.

      LABA + BABA

    • B.

      BACA + ICS

    • C.

      LAMA + LABA + ICS

    • D.

      AMA +BABA

    Correct Answer
    C. LAMA + LABA + ICS
    Explanation
    During a triple therapy in patients with severe COPD, LAMA (long-acting muscarinic antagonist) is used to relax the muscles in the airways, LABA (long-acting beta agonist) is used to open up the airways, and ICS (inhaled corticosteroid) is used to reduce inflammation in the airways. This combination of medications helps to improve lung function, reduce symptoms, and prevent exacerbations in patients with severe COPD.

    What is not recommended in COPD treatment?

    • A.

      Long-term treatment with oral glucocorticosteroids

    • B.

      Long-term treatment with anything

    • C.

      Long-term treatment with intrevenus glucocorticosteroids

    • D.

      Short-term treatment with oral glucocorticosteroids

    Correct Answer
    A. Long-term treatment with oral glucocorticosteroids
    Explanation
    Long-term treatment with oral glucocorticosteroids is not recommended in COPD treatment because it can have significant side effects such as osteoporosis, muscle weakness, and increased risk of infections. Oral glucocorticosteroids should only be used for short-term treatment during exacerbations of COPD symptoms. Long-term treatment with anything or with intravenous glucocorticosteroids is not recommended either, as it can also have adverse effects and may not provide long-term benefits for COPD management.

    What are the side effects of systemic steroids?

    • A.

      Myopathy + diabetes + hypertension in 80% of the cases

    • B.

      Myopathy in 80% of the cases

    • C.

      Diabetes + hypertension in 80% of the cases

    • D.

       Hypertension in 80% of the cases

    Correct Answer
    A. Myopathy + diabetes + hypertension in 80% of the cases
    Explanation
    Systemic steroids can have various side effects, including myopathy, diabetes, and hypertension. In 80% of the cases, individuals may experience all three of these side effects. Myopathy refers to muscle weakness or wasting, which can occur due to the use of steroids. Diabetes and hypertension are also common side effects of systemic steroids, with approximately 80% of individuals experiencing these conditions. These side effects highlight the importance of closely monitoring individuals who are prescribed systemic steroids and managing these potential complications.

    What causes acute exacerbation?

    • A.

      Allergy to pollen

    • B.

      Cold sores

    • C.

      Respiratory tract infection

    • D.

      Dehydration

    Correct Answer
    C. Respiratory tract infection
    Explanation
    Respiratory tract infection is the correct answer because it is a common cause of acute exacerbation. During a respiratory tract infection, the airways become inflamed and narrowed, leading to increased symptoms and difficulty breathing. This can trigger an acute exacerbation in individuals with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Allergy to pollen, cold sores, and dehydration may cause discomfort or respiratory symptoms, but they are not directly associated with acute exacerbations.

    What's the problem with patients with antibiotics to treat COPD?

    • A.

      It increases adverse effects of the antibiotics

    • B.

      It slows down their recovery

    • C.

      They vomit a lot

    • D.

      They lose sleep at night

    Correct Answer
    A. It increases adverse effects of the antibiotics
    Explanation
    Patients with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) who are treated with antibiotics may experience an increase in adverse effects of the medication. This could include side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, or allergic reactions. The use of antibiotics in COPD patients is aimed at treating infections that can exacerbate their condition, so experiencing additional adverse effects can be detrimental to their overall health and recovery.

    What is the main problem with using too much antibiotics?

    • A.

      It contributes to antimicrobial resistance

    • B.

      It leads to weight gain

    • C.

      It leads to other diseases

    • D.

      It leads to secondary reactions

    Correct Answer
    A. It contributes to antimicrobial resistance
    Explanation
    Using too much antibiotics can contribute to antimicrobial resistance. This means that the bacteria and other microorganisms that the antibiotics are meant to kill become resistant to their effects. When this happens, the antibiotics become less effective in treating infections, leading to the spread of drug-resistant bacteria. This can result in longer and more severe illnesses, increased healthcare costs, and even death in some cases. Therefore, it is important to use antibiotics judiciously and only when necessary to minimize the development of antimicrobial resistance.
