    What technique did the early Phlebotomist used to collect blood ?

    • A.

      Leeches and Incision

    • B.

      Venipuncture and Lidocaine

    • D.

      Heel stick and Syringe

    Correct Answer
    A. Leeches and Incision
    Explanation
    In the early days, phlebotomists used leeches and incisions to collect blood. Leeches were applied to the skin to create small wounds, and the blood was collected as the leeches fed. Incisions were made with a sharp instrument, allowing the blood to flow out and be collected. These techniques were used before the development of more modern and less invasive methods such as venipuncture and the use of tools like vacuette and vacutainer or a syringe for blood collection.

    What is used to reduce pain and alleviate distress during Venipuncture in Pediatric Patients

    • A.

      Pathogen Fission

    • B.

      Codeine

    • C.

      Lidocaine iontophorosis

    • D.

      Pain killer

    Correct Answer
    C. Lidocaine iontophorosis
    Explanation
    Lidocaine iontophoresis is used to reduce pain and alleviate distress during venipuncture in pediatric patients. Iontophoresis is a technique that uses a small electrical current to deliver lidocaine, a local anesthetic, through the skin. This helps numb the area and reduce pain during the procedure. Lidocaine iontophoresis is a safe and effective method for managing pain in pediatric patients, making it a suitable option for venipuncture procedures.

      Pathogen detector

    • D.

      Blood Culture

    Correct Answer
    D. Blood Culture
    Explanation
    To determine the presence of pathogens in the blood, a blood culture is required. A blood culture involves taking a sample of the patient's blood and placing it in a culture medium that promotes the growth of bacteria or fungi. This allows the pathogens to multiply and be identified through various laboratory tests. Blood culture is a standard diagnostic procedure used to identify and isolate the specific pathogen causing an infection in the bloodstream. It helps in guiding appropriate treatment decisions and monitoring the effectiveness of therapy.

These organisms have adapted to environments with low or no oxygen levels and have developed alternative metabolic processes to generate energy. They can be found in various habitats, such as deep-sea hydrothermal vents, sewage treatment plants, and the human digestive system. Anaerobic bacteria are known to cause diseases such as tetanus, botulism, and gangrene.

These pathogens thrive in environments with oxygen and may cause various infections and diseases in humans and other organisms. They utilize oxygen to generate energy and survive in aerobic conditions.
