    Normal hearing loss in aging is usually related to the ability to hear

    • A.

      High ptiched sounds

    • B.

      Loud sounds

    • C.

      All sounds

    • D.

      Rapid speech

    Correct Answer
    A. High ptiched sounds
    Explanation
    As individuals age, the structures in the inner ear responsible for detecting high-pitched sounds tend to deteriorate. This leads to difficulty in hearing and perceiving these specific frequencies, resulting in normal hearing loss in aging. It is important to note that this type of hearing loss does not affect the ability to hear all sounds or loud sounds, but specifically impacts the perception of high-pitched sounds. Rapid speech, on the other hand, may be affected by other factors such as cognitive decline or processing speed, but it is not directly related to normal age-related hearing loss.

    Correct Answer
    B. Atrophy
    Explanation
    Lack of movement can lead to the wasting or shrinking of muscle tissue, which is known as atrophy. When muscles are not used or exercised regularly, they can become weaker and smaller in size. This can occur due to various reasons such as immobilization, prolonged bed rest, or lack of physical activity. Atrophy can have negative effects on muscle strength and overall physical function.

Shaking down the thermometer helps to reset the mercury level to ensure accurate temperature measurement.

    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the above options are correct because they all play a role in maintaining a sufficient intake of air. The mouth and nasopharynx are responsible for the initial entry of air into the body. The trachea and larynx help in directing the air towards the lungs. Finally, the bronchi and alveoli are involved in the gas exchange process, where oxygen is taken in and carbon dioxide is expelled. Therefore, all of these body parts are necessary for the intake and distribution of air in the respiratory system.

Washing the uniform removes these germs, reducing the risk of spreading infections to other patients or healthcare workers. While looking professional and neat are important aspects of wearing a nursing uniform, the primary reason for laundering it daily is to maintain a hygienic and safe healthcare environment.
