      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

    When providing first aid, it is important to wear protective barriers such as gloves, masks, and goggles. These barriers help to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases from the patient to the first aider.

    Explanation
    Latex gloves are not reusable as they are designed for single-use only. After each use, latex gloves should be disposed of properly to prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses.

    Saliva, spit and nasal drainage can harbor respiratory viruses.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Saliva, spit, and nasal drainage can harbor respiratory viruses because these bodily fluids can contain viral particles that are expelled when a person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Respiratory viruses, such as the common cold or influenza, can be transmitted through these fluids when an infected person comes into close contact with another person. Therefore, it is important to practice good hygiene, such as covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

    HIV is a serious blood-borne infection.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    HIV is indeed a serious blood-borne infection. It is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus, which attacks the immune system and weakens the body's ability to fight off infections and diseases. HIV is primarily transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen, vaginal fluids, or breast milk. It can be spread through sexual contact, sharing needles or syringes, or from mother to child during childbirth or breastfeeding. HIV can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) if left untreated. Therefore, it is crucial to practice safe sex, use clean needles, and get tested regularly to prevent the spread of HIV.

Universal precautions are a set of infection control practices used to prevent the transmission of diseases in healthcare settings. Gloves are necessary to protect against contact with bodily fluids. Bandages are needed to cover wounds and prevent contamination. A face shield provides additional protection against splashes or sprays of bodily fluids. Including all of these items in a universal precautions kit ensures that healthcare workers are properly equipped to prevent the spread of infection.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which body fluid is not considered to hold pathogens?

    • A.

      Urine

    • B.

      Blood

    • C.

      Sweat

    • D.

      Vomit

    Correct Answer
    C. Sweat
    Explanation
    Sweat is not considered to hold pathogens because it is primarily composed of water and electrolytes, such as sodium and chloride. Sweat glands help regulate body temperature by producing sweat, which evaporates from the skin and cools the body. Unlike blood, urine, and vomit, sweat does not typically contain high concentrations of microorganisms or infectious agents. Therefore, it is less likely to transmit diseases or be a source of pathogens.
