    Correct Answer
    B. Opioids
    Explanation
    Opioids are a class of drugs that can be used for pain management in animals. They act on the nervous system to relieve pain and are commonly prescribed by veterinarians for animals experiencing moderate to severe pain. Opioids work by binding to specific receptors in the brain and spinal cord, blocking the transmission of pain signals. They are effective in managing pain in various conditions, including post-surgical pain, chronic pain, and acute injuries.

    Explanation
    An agonist refers to a drug that causes psychological activities.

    Which of these should be watched during critical conditions?

    • A.

      Respiratory

    • B.

      Cardiovascular

    • C.

      Neurological

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    During critical conditions, it is important to closely monitor all three systems - respiratory, cardiovascular, and neurological. These systems are interconnected and any abnormalities in one system can have a significant impact on the others. For example, during critical conditions, respiratory function may be compromised, leading to decreased oxygen supply to the brain and heart, which can result in neurological and cardiovascular complications. Therefore, it is crucial to monitor all these systems to ensure prompt intervention and appropriate management.

    Which should not be watched out for during respiratory checkup for animals?

      Sound

    • C.

      Heaviness

    • D.

      Pattern

    Correct Answer
    C. Heaviness
    Explanation
    During a respiratory checkup for animals, "heaviness" should not be watched out for. This is because heaviness is not a characteristic or symptom typically associated with respiratory health. Instead, a respiratory checkup would typically focus on monitoring the animal's breathing rate, listening for any abnormal sounds, and observing the pattern of their breaths.

    What is acidemic?

    • A.

      Blow acidity too high

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Blood pH too low
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Blood pH too low". Acidemia refers to a condition in which the blood pH is lower than the normal range. In this case, it means that the acidity in the blood is too high, resulting in a decrease in pH. This can be caused by various factors such as respiratory or metabolic disorders that disrupt the balance of acids and bases in the body.

    Which is an example of cardiopulmonary arrest?

      Hypovolemia

    • B.

      Hypothesis

    • C.

      Cardiovascular

    • D.

      Hypertension

    Correct Answer
    A. Hypovolemia
    Explanation
    Cardiopulmonary arrest refers to the sudden cessation of both heart and lung function. Hypovolemia, which is the excessive loss of blood or fluids, can lead to a decrease in blood volume and subsequent inadequate oxygenation of tissues. This can result in cardiopulmonary arrest as the heart is unable to pump blood effectively and the lungs are unable to oxygenate the blood. Therefore, hypovolemia is an example of cardiopulmonary arrest.
