Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Name two pharmaceutical methods that were somewhat effective for pain management before 1846.

    • A.

      Alcohol & Tea

    • B.

      Canabis & Coffee

    • C.

      Alcohol & Cocaine

    • D.

      Opium and Plums

    Correct Answer
    C. Alcohol & Cocaine
    Explanation
    Before 1846, alcohol and cocaine were somewhat effective methods for pain management. Alcohol has been used for centuries as a pain reliever due to its sedative properties, which can help numb pain sensations. Similarly, cocaine, derived from the coca plant, was also used as a painkiller during that time period. It was believed to have local anesthetic effects, providing temporary relief from pain. However, it is important to note that these methods had significant drawbacks and potential for addiction and harmful side effects.

    What agent revolutionized anesthesia in 1846?

    • A.

      Cocaine

    • B.

      Cannabis

    • C.

      Diethyl Ether

    • D.

      Propane

    Correct Answer
    C. Diethyl Ether
    Explanation
    Diethyl Ether is the correct answer because it was the agent that revolutionized anesthesia in 1846. It was first used by William T.G. Morton during a surgical procedure, marking the beginning of modern anesthesia. Diethyl Ether was effective in inducing unconsciousness and pain relief, allowing for safer and more comfortable surgeries. Its discovery and use had a significant impact on the field of medicine, transforming the way surgeries were performed and leading to further advancements in anesthesia techniques.

    The three basic phases of anesthesia.

    • A.

      Pre medication, intubation, O2

    • B.

      Induction,Emergence, Awakening

    • C.

      IV, Intubation,Emergence

    • D.

      Induction, Maintenace, Emergence

    Correct Answer
    D. Induction, Maintenace, Emergence
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Induction, Maintenance, Emergence." This is because these three phases represent the sequential steps of administering anesthesia. Induction refers to the initial administration of anesthesia to induce unconsciousness. Maintenance involves maintaining the desired level of anesthesia throughout the procedure. Finally, emergence is the process of waking up the patient and reversing the effects of anesthesia at the end of the procedure.

    Although not a benzodiazepine it could be used as an adjunct to anesthesia to provide sedation and antiemetic effects. A a dose of .625mg of____________________or Inapsine is usually given for nausea and vomitng in the PACU.

    Correct Answer
    Droperidol
    Explanation
    Droperidol is not a benzodiazepine, but it can be used as an adjunct to anesthesia to provide sedation and antiemetic effects. In the PACU, a dose of .625mg of Droperidol is typically given for nausea and vomiting.

    Name a neuromuscular blocking agent.

    • A.

      Rocuranium

    • B.

      Fentanyl

    • C.

      Neostigmine

    • D.

      Ketamine

    Correct Answer
    A. Rocuranium
    Explanation
    Rocuranium is a neuromuscular blocking agent used during surgical procedures to relax skeletal muscles and facilitate intubation. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses at the neuromuscular junction, leading to muscle paralysis. This allows for better surgical access and control over the patient's airway. Fentanyl is an opioid analgesic, Neostigmine is a reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor used to reverse the effects of neuromuscular blockade, and Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic. Therefore, Rocuranium is the correct answer as it specifically falls under the category of neuromuscular blocking agents.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What are the two types of neuromuscular blockers?

    • A.

      Depolarization

    • B.

      Analgesic

    • C.

      Nondepolarization

    • D.

      Atropine

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Depolarization
    C. Nondepolarization
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Depolarization and Nondepolarization. Neuromuscular blockers are medications used during surgery to relax muscles and facilitate intubation. Depolarizing neuromuscular blockers, such as succinylcholine, work by depolarizing the muscle membrane and causing sustained muscle contraction. Nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockers, such as rocuronium, work by blocking the action of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, resulting in muscle relaxation. Analgesics, such as opioids, are medications used to relieve pain, while atropine is an anticholinergic drug used to treat bradycardia and other conditions.

  • 7. 

    Muscle strength returns in reverse, smaller ones( eyelid muscles) regain strength last.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Muscle strength returning in reverse means that the larger muscles regain strength first, followed by the smaller muscles. In this case, the eyelid muscles are the smaller muscles, so they would regain strength last. This statement is true because it follows the pattern described.
