    Explanation
    The United Kingdom ranked highest globally in the study of end-of-life care in 2015. This means that the United Kingdom was considered to have the best quality of care for individuals nearing the end of their lives compared to other countries. The study likely evaluated factors such as access to palliative care, pain management, support for patients and their families, and overall quality of end-of-life services.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of these acts is not an end-of-life care?

    • A.

      Putting lotion on the delicate skin 

    • B.

      Holding hands 

    • C.

      Helping the sick walk around 

    • D.

      Combing hair 

    Correct Answer
    C. Helping the sick walk around 
    Explanation
    Helping the sick walk around is not considered an end-of-life care because it implies that the person is still able to move and requires assistance for mobility. End-of-life care typically focuses on providing comfort and support to individuals who are terminally ill and may not have the physical ability to walk or perform daily activities. Therefore, the act of helping the sick walk around does not align with the concept of end-of-life care.

  • 5. 

    Which of these is not a sign that death may be near?

    • A.

      Drowsiness 

    • B.

      Increased sleeping 

    • C.

      Increased appetite 

    • D.

      Unresponsiveness 

    Correct Answer
    C. Increased appetite 
    Explanation
    Increased appetite is not a sign that death may be near. In fact, it is quite the opposite. When death is approaching, a person's appetite usually decreases or they may lose interest in eating altogether. This can be due to various factors such as the body shutting down, decreased metabolism, or changes in the person's overall condition. Therefore, increased appetite is not typically associated with the end of life.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How can pain be managed in end-of-life care?

    • A.

      Administration of morphine 

    • B.

      Administration of formaldehyde 

    • C.

      Administration of paracetamol 

    • D.

      Administration of atropine 

    Correct Answer
    A. Administration of morphine 
    Explanation
    In end-of-life care, pain can be managed through the administration of morphine. Morphine is a powerful opioid analgesic that is commonly used to alleviate severe pain. It works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, blocking the transmission of pain signals and providing relief. Morphine is often prescribed in end-of-life care to help patients manage pain and improve their quality of life. It is important to carefully monitor the dosage and side effects of morphine to ensure optimal pain management and patient comfort.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of these is not associated with agitation in end-of-life care patients?

    • A.

      Restlessness 

    • B.

      Delirium 

    • C.

      Respiratory tract infections 

    • D.

      Terminal anguish 

    Correct Answer
    C. Respiratory tract infections 
    Explanation
    Respiratory tract infections are not typically associated with agitation in end-of-life care patients. Agitation is commonly seen in patients experiencing restlessness, delirium, and terminal anguish. Respiratory tract infections may cause physical discomfort and distress, but they do not directly contribute to agitation in these patients.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of these is controlled by use of benzodiazepines?

    • A.

      Respiratory tract infections 

    • B.

      Fever 

    • C.

      Pain 

    • D.

      Agitation 

    Correct Answer
    D. Agitation 
    Explanation
    Benzodiazepines are a class of medications that are commonly used to treat anxiety and agitation. They work by enhancing the effects of a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain, which helps to reduce feelings of anxiety and promote relaxation. Therefore, it can be inferred that the use of benzodiazepines is specifically controlled and targeted towards managing agitation.

      Dyspnea 

    • D.

      Nausea 

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Dyspnea is the medical term for breathlessness or difficulty in breathing. It is a symptom commonly associated with various respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia, and heart failure. It can also be caused by anxiety, panic attacks, and physical exertion. Agitation, fever, and nausea are not directly related to breathlessness.

  • 10. 

    Which of these route of administration can be assisted for such patients?

    • A.

      Oral administration 

    • B.

      Intra-dermal administration 

    • C.

      Rectal administration 

    • D.

      Subcutaneous administration 

    Correct Answer
    A. Oral administration 
    Explanation
    Oral administration can be assisted for such patients because it is a convenient and non-invasive route of drug administration. It involves taking medication through the mouth, either in the form of tablets, capsules, or liquids, which can be easily swallowed. This route is suitable for patients who have difficulty swallowing or are unable to receive medication through other routes such as injections. Additionally, oral administration allows for slow and controlled release of the drug into the bloodstream, making it an effective and commonly used route of administration.
