    The following are all symptoms of HIV/AIDS EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Fever

    • B.

      Weight loss

    • C.

      Night sweats

    HBV and HCV are both infections of the:

    • A.

      Lungs

    • B.

      Lymphatic system

    • C.

      Intestines

    • D.

      Liver

    Correct Answer
    D. Liver
    Explanation
    HBV (Hepatitis B virus) and HCV (Hepatitis C virus) are both infections that primarily affect the liver. These viruses specifically target the liver cells and cause inflammation and damage to the liver tissue. The liver plays a crucial role in various bodily functions, including detoxification, metabolism, and production of essential proteins. Therefore, infection with HBV or HCV can lead to liver diseases such as hepatitis, cirrhosis, and even liver cancer. It is important to note that while both infections primarily affect the liver, they are caused by different viruses and have distinct modes of transmission.

    There is a three-shot vaccine series to protect against HBV.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because there is indeed a three-shot vaccine series available to protect against HBV (Hepatitis B Virus). This vaccine is typically administered in three doses over a period of several months. Each dose helps to build immunity against the virus, providing long-term protection against HBV infection.

    As an employee of the school system, your chances of contracting HCV are much greater than contracting HBV or HIV.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    As an employee of the school system, your chances of contracting HCV are not necessarily greater than contracting HBV or HIV. The likelihood of contracting any of these viruses depends on various factors such as the prevalence of the viruses in the community, the nature of the job, and the level of exposure to bodily fluids. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that HCV poses a greater risk than HBV or HIV specifically for school system employees.

    HCV can be treated in some people with:

    • A.

      Alka Seltzer

    • B.

      Mylanta

    • C.

      Antiviral drugs

    • D.

      M&M’s

    Correct Answer
    C. Antiviral drugs
    Explanation
    HCV, which stands for Hepatitis C Virus, is a viral infection that affects the liver. The most effective treatment for HCV is antiviral drugs. These medications work by targeting the virus and inhibiting its replication, thus reducing the viral load in the body. While Alka Seltzer, Mylanta, and M&M's are not effective in treating HCV, antiviral drugs have been proven to be successful in managing the infection and improving long-term outcomes for patients.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because according to the given information, these bodily fluids (feces, urine, vomit, nasal secretions, sputum, sweat, tears, and saliva) are only considered part of the standard if they are visibly contaminated with blood. This means that if any of these fluids are visibly contaminated with blood, they are included in the standard.

    You are considered to be exposed to Bloodborne Pathogens if blood or other potentially infectious materials come in contact with:

    • A.

      Dresses, scarves, coats and pants

    • B.

      Gloves

    • C.

      Mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, or nose or if a contaminated sharp object punctures the skin

    • D.

      Bed sheets

    Correct Answer
    C. Mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, or nose or if a contaminated sharp object punctures the skin
    Explanation
    Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens occurs when blood or other potentially infectious materials come into contact with the mucous membranes of the eyes, mouth, or nose, or if a contaminated sharp object punctures the skin. This means that if blood or other infectious materials touch these areas, there is a risk of contracting bloodborne diseases. The other options listed, such as dresses, scarves, coats, pants, gloves, and bed sheets, do not pose the same level of risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens.

    You can become infected through casual contact such as hugging, kissing on the cheek, sneezing, coughing, or drinking from a water fountain.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because casual contact such as hugging, kissing on the cheek, sneezing, coughing, or drinking from a water fountain does not typically lead to infection transmission. Infections are usually transmitted through direct contact with bodily fluids, respiratory droplets, or contaminated surfaces.

    All of the following are ways to protect yourself from exposure EXCEPT:

    • A.

      Follow the instructions in the Exposure Control Manual

    • B.

      Treating everyone as if they are infected

    • C.

      Always use a barrier mouthpiece when performing CPR

    • D.

      Never get the Hepatitis B vaccine series

    Correct Answer
    D. Never get the Hepatitis B vaccine series
    Explanation
    The given answer states that "never get the Hepatitis B vaccine series" is not a way to protect yourself from exposure. This means that getting the Hepatitis B vaccine series is a way to protect oneself from exposure. The Hepatitis B vaccine is effective in preventing the Hepatitis B virus, which is transmitted through exposure to infected blood or body fluids. Therefore, getting vaccinated is an important measure to protect oneself from exposure to Hepatitis B.

    You can use a plastic grocery bag to create a barrier between your skin and a person’s bleeding injury.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using a plastic grocery bag as a barrier between your skin and a person's bleeding injury can help prevent the transfer of bloodborne pathogens and reduce the risk of infection. The bag acts as a protective barrier, minimizing direct contact with the blood and reducing the chances of contamination. However, it is important to note that using a proper medical barrier such as gloves or a sterile dressing is the best practice in first aid situations.

    The risk of exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens in a school division is relatively low.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens in a school division is relatively low because schools typically have protocols and procedures in place to prevent and minimize the spread of infectious diseases. Schools often have trained staff who follow strict hygiene practices, such as wearing gloves and using appropriate disinfectants, when dealing with potential bloodborne pathogens. Additionally, schools typically have policies in place for handling and disposing of hazardous materials, including blood and other bodily fluids, further reducing the risk of exposure.

    Most people with HIV/AIDS:

    • A.

      Have numerous symptoms and die quickly

    • B.

      Must be hospitalized

    • C.

      Have no symptoms and feel well

    • D.

      Must wear a mask and gown when they are in public

    Correct Answer
    C. Have no symptoms and feel well
    Explanation
    Most people with HIV/AIDS have no symptoms and feel well because HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system, leading to a weakened ability to fight off infections and diseases. However, this does not necessarily mean that individuals will immediately experience symptoms or deteriorate quickly. Many people with HIV can live for years without showing any signs of the infection, especially if they are receiving proper medical care and treatment. It is important for individuals with HIV/AIDS to regularly monitor their health and follow a treatment plan to maintain their well-being.
