    What should you pop a blister with?

    • A.

      Tweezers

    • B.

      Hot Needle

    • C.

      Just squeeze it

    • D.

      Never pop a blister

    Correct Answer
    D. Never pop a blister
    Explanation
    Popping a blister can increase the risk of infection and delay the healing process. When a blister forms, it acts as a protective barrier for the underlying skin, preventing further damage and allowing the skin to heal naturally. Popping the blister can expose the raw skin to bacteria, increasing the chances of infection. Therefore, it is generally recommended to avoid popping blisters and instead keep them clean and covered to promote healing.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. This acronym, RICE, is commonly used in the context of injury management and refers to the recommended steps for treating acute injuries. Rest involves avoiding any activity that may further aggravate the injury. Ice helps reduce pain and inflammation by constricting blood vessels. Compression involves applying pressure to the injured area to minimize swelling. Elevation involves raising the injured limb above heart level to help reduce swelling.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When your shaking your head "no" you are moving your head in which plane?

    • A.

      Transverse

    • B.

      Sagittal

    • C.

      Frontal

    • D.

      Mediolateral

    Correct Answer
    A. Transverse
    Explanation
    When you shake your head "no", you are moving your head from side to side, which is a movement that occurs in the transverse plane. The transverse plane divides the body into upper and lower sections and movements in this plane involve rotation or twisting around an axis.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What axis are you rotating your head about when you shake your head "no"?

    • A.

      Anteroposterior

    • B.

      Mediolateral

    • C.

      Longitudinal

    • D.

      Proximodistal

    Correct Answer
    C. Longitudinal
    Explanation
    When you shake your head "no," you are rotating it about the longitudinal axis. The longitudinal axis runs from the top of your head to the bottom, passing through the center of your head. This type of rotation causes your head to move from side to side, indicating a negative response or disagreement.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    When you shake your head "no" what motion is occurring?

    • A.

      Flexion/extension of the head

    • B.

      Right/left lateral flexion of the head

    • C.

      Right/left rotation of the head

    • D.

      Adduction/abduction of the head

    Correct Answer
    C. Right/left rotation of the head
    Explanation
    When you shake your head "no," you are actually performing a right/left rotation of the head. This motion involves turning the head from side to side, as if you are saying "no." It does not involve flexion/extension (forward and backward movement), right/left lateral flexion (tilting the head to the side), or adduction/abduction (moving the head towards or away from the midline).

  • 9. 

    When a football player punts the football, he is rotating his kicking leg about a(n) ____________ axis through his hip which creates movement in the __________ plane

    • A.

      Anterioposterior; frontal

    • B.

      Anteroposterior; sagittal

    • C.

      Mediolateral;transverse

    • D.

      Mediolateral; sagittal

    Correct Answer
    D. Mediolateral; sagittal
    Explanation
    When a football player punts the football, he is rotating his kicking leg about a mediolateral axis through his hip which creates movement in the sagittal plane. The mediolateral axis refers to an imaginary line that runs from side to side, perpendicular to the sagittal plane. The sagittal plane divides the body into left and right halves. Therefore, when the football player rotates his leg about the mediolateral axis, it creates movement in the sagittal plane, allowing him to kick the football forward.

    When performing a bench press, what action occurs at your elbows?

    • A.

      Flexion

    • B.

      Extension

    • C.

      Adduction

    • D.

      Abduction

    • E.

      Horizontal abduction

    • F.

      Horizontal adduction

    Correct Answer
    A. Flexion
    Explanation
    During a bench press, the action that occurs at your elbows is flexion. Flexion refers to the movement that decreases the angle between the bones at a joint. In this case, when performing a bench press, the angle between the upper arm and the forearm decreases as the forearm moves towards the upper arm. This movement is known as flexion at the elbows.

    C. Hinge
    D. Condyloid
    E. Ball-and-socket
    F. Saddle
    Explanation
    The given options are all types of synovial joints. Synovial joints are characterized by the presence of a synovial cavity, which is filled with synovial fluid, allowing for smooth movement between the articulating bones. Pivot joints allow for rotation around a central axis, gliding joints allow for sliding movements, hinge joints allow for flexion and extension movements, condyloid joints allow for flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, and circumduction movements, ball-and-socket joints allow for the greatest range of motion in all directions, and saddle joints allow for flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, and circumduction movements. Therefore, all of the given options are synovial joints.

      Just be careful not to touch the fluids with your hands

    • D.

      Call for a professional cleaning service

    Correct Answer
    B. Wear proper personal protective equipment
    Explanation
    To properly clean up the blood after a fellow employee was struck in the nose by a wrench, it is important to wear proper personal protective equipment. This includes gloves, goggles, and a face mask, which will protect you from potential bloodborne pathogens and prevent any contact with the blood. Using sterile gauze to wipe off the tool and the floor is also recommended to ensure proper sanitation. Simply being careful not to touch the fluids with your hands may not provide adequate protection against potential infections. Calling for a professional cleaning service may be necessary in certain situations, but wearing personal protective equipment is the immediate step to take.

    The biggest reason to have an open basket weave ankle tape job is ________

    Correct Answer(s)
    swelling
    Explanation
    An open basket weave ankle tape job is used to manage swelling. The open design allows for better circulation and reduces pressure on the ankle, which can help prevent or reduce swelling. This type of taping technique provides support while still allowing for some movement and flexibility, which is important for proper healing and preventing further injury. By addressing swelling, the open basket weave ankle tape job helps promote a faster recovery and allows the individual to resume their activities sooner.
