    Explanation
    Visual acuity refers to the ability to see objects clearly and is measured at a distance of 20 feet using an eye chart. This test is commonly used to assess the sharpness of a person's vision and to determine if they have any refractive errors or visual impairments. By measuring visual acuity, eye care professionals can prescribe corrective lenses or recommend other interventions to improve a person's vision.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Presbycusis is a progressive hearing loss associated with loud noises at work for Leonard.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Presbycusis is a type of hearing loss that occurs gradually as a person ages. It is often associated with long-term exposure to loud noises, such as those found in certain work environments. Therefore, it is plausible that Leonard's progressive hearing loss is indeed due to loud noises at work, making the answer "True" correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    When Mr. McCoy was given a visual acuity test and his results was 20/80.  The bottom number is measured in feet a person with normal vision would have to stand to see the same chart letters clearly.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that in a visual acuity test, the results are expressed as a fraction. The top number represents the distance at which the test is conducted (in this case, 20 feet), and the bottom number represents the distance at which a person with normal vision would be able to see the chart letters clearly (in this case, 80 feet). Therefore, if Mr. McCoy's results were 20/80, it means that he can only see the chart letters clearly at a distance of 20 feet, whereas a person with normal vision would be able to see them clearly at a distance of 80 feet. Hence, the statement "The bottom number is measured in feet a person with normal vision would have to stand to see the same chart letters clearly" is true.

    • C.

      20/63

    • D.

      20/80

    • E.

      20/20

    Correct Answer
    C. 20/63
    Explanation
    Mr. McCoy scored 20/63 on the visual acuity test for his right eye in the health clinic. This means that he can see at 20 feet what a person with normal vision can see at 63 feet. This indicates that his visual acuity for his right eye is below average, as he needs to be closer to an object in order to see it clearly compared to someone with normal vision.

    Select the diagnostic tests conducted on your 55 year old male patient related to his hearing difficulty.

    • A.

      Audiometric Hearing Test

    • B.

      Rinne Test

    • C.

      Weber Test

    • D.

      Snellen Eye Chart Test

    • E.

      Fasting Plasma Glucose Test

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Audiometric Hearing Test
    B. Rinne Test
    C. Weber Test
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Audiometric Hearing Test, Rinne Test, and Weber Test. These tests are specifically related to assessing the patient's hearing difficulty. The Audiometric Hearing Test measures the patient's ability to hear sounds of different frequencies and volumes. The Rinne Test compares air conduction to bone conduction to determine if there is any hearing loss. The Weber Test assesses if there is any unilateral hearing loss or if the hearing loss is equal in both ears. The Snellen Eye Chart Test and Fasting Plasma Glucose Test are unrelated to the patient's hearing difficulty and are not relevant diagnostic tests in this case.

    D. Meniere's Disease
    Explanation
    Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo and Meniere's Disease share many of the symptoms exhibited by Mr. McCoy. Both conditions can cause dizziness, vertigo, and balance problems. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo is characterized by brief episodes of vertigo triggered by certain head movements, while Meniere's Disease is a chronic condition that causes recurring episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, and tinnitus. Since both diseases share similar symptoms, it is important to consider them as potential diagnoses for Mr. McCoy.

    During Leonard McCoy's vacation in Florida, he was prescribed a 10-day course of amoxicillin. This drug is commonly used to treat bacterial infections, and a 10-day course suggests that McCoy had a more severe or persistent infection that required a longer treatment period.
