Blanket And Fluid Warmer Test - Quiz


This test is to assess comprehension of the new Blanket and Fluid Warmer policy.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Fluids and blankets can be kept in the same cabinet.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Fluids and blankets should not be kept in the same cabinet because fluids can potentially leak or spill, contaminating the blankets and rendering them unusable. Additionally, fluids may have specific storage requirements, such as temperature control, that may not be suitable for blankets. Therefore, it is recommended to store fluids and blankets separately to ensure safety and maintain the quality of both items.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The temperature log sheet(s) for both fluids and blankets must be completed:

    • A.

      Weekly

    • B.

      Monthly

    • C.

      Daily

    • D.

      Whenever the temperature is out-of-range

    Correct Answer
    C. Daily
    Explanation
    The temperature log sheets for both fluids and blankets must be completed daily to ensure accurate and timely monitoring of temperature levels. This allows for prompt action to be taken if the temperature falls outside the acceptable range. Regular and consistent monitoring is essential for maintaining the desired temperature conditions and ensuring the safety and effectiveness of the fluids and blankets.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Who is responsible for adjusting the temperatures on all warming cabinets?

    • A.

      Housekeeping

    • B.

      Administration

    • C.

      Clinical Engineering

    • D.

      Engineering

    Correct Answer
    C. Clinical Engineering
    Explanation
    Clinical Engineering is responsible for adjusting the temperatures on all warming cabinets. This department is specifically trained in managing and maintaining medical equipment, including warming cabinets. They have the expertise to ensure that the temperatures are set correctly to meet the specific needs of each patient or procedure. Housekeeping, Administration, and Engineering may have other responsibilities within the healthcare facility, but adjusting the temperatures on warming cabinets falls under the domain of Clinical Engineering.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Warmed fluids cannot exceed which temperature:

    • A.

      115 degrees F

    • B.

      95 degres F

    • C.

      104 degrees F

    • D.

      130 degrees F

    Correct Answer
    C. 104 degrees F
    Explanation
    Warmed fluids cannot exceed 104 degrees F because it is the maximum safe temperature for fluids to be administered to patients. Higher temperatures can cause burns and other injuries to the patient's body. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the warmed fluids do not exceed this temperature to maintain patient safety and prevent any harm.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Warmed blankets should be maintained in which temperature range?

    • A.

      100-145 degrees F

    • B.

      100-120 degrees F

    • C.

      100-104 degrees F

    • D.

      100-130 degrees F

    Correct Answer
    D. 100-130 degrees F
    Explanation
    Warmed blankets should be maintained in the temperature range of 100-130 degrees F. This range ensures that the blankets are warm enough to provide comfort and promote relaxation, but not too hot to cause discomfort or potential burns. It strikes a balance between warmth and safety for the user.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    How long can fluids be warmed before they must be removed from the warmer?

    • A.

      30 days

    • B.

      14 days

    • C.

      10 days

    • D.

      24 hours

    Correct Answer
    B. 14 days
    Explanation
    Fluids can be warmed for up to 14 days before they must be removed from the warmer. This suggests that after 14 days, the warmed fluids may become unsafe or lose their effectiveness. It is important to remove them from the warmer within this time frame to ensure the safety and efficacy of the fluids.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You can warm blood or blood products in a fluid warmer.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Blood or blood products should not be warmed in a fluid warmer. Fluid warmers are designed for warming intravenous fluids and not suitable for warming blood or blood products. Blood and blood products require specific equipment and techniques for warming to prevent any damage or alteration of the components. Using a fluid warmer for blood or blood products can lead to hemolysis, clotting, or other adverse effects. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Microwaves are NOT a suitable method of warming blankets in an emergency.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Microwaves are not a suitable method of warming blankets in an emergency because they can cause the blankets to overheat and potentially catch fire. Microwaves are designed to heat food and beverages, not large fabric items like blankets. Additionally, microwaves may not distribute heat evenly throughout the blanket, leaving some areas cold and others dangerously hot. In emergency situations, it is recommended to use alternative methods such as heating pads, hot water bottles, or blankets designed specifically for emergency warming.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Fluids that have been removed from the warmer can be used for how long before they must be discarded?

    • A.

      14 days

    • B.

      96 hours

    • C.

      Until the manufacturer's expiration date printed on the bottle.

    • D.

      365 days

    Correct Answer
    C. Until the manufacturer's expiration date printed on the bottle.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Until the manufacturer's expiration date printed on the bottle." This means that the fluids can be used for as long as the expiration date allows, as determined by the manufacturer. It is important to follow the expiration date to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the fluids.
