    Bacterial Growth & Odor is the result of ___

    • A.

      Ammino acid + Proteins + Nitrogenous Waste

    • B.

      Fatty acid + Minerals + Nitrogenous Waste

    • C.

      Fatty acid + Proteins + Nitrogenous Waste

    Correct Answer
    C. Fatty acid + Proteins + Nitrogenous Waste
    Explanation
    Bacterial growth and odor is the result of the combination of fatty acids, proteins, and nitrogenous waste. These components provide the necessary nutrients and energy for bacteria to grow and reproduce. Fatty acids serve as a source of carbon and energy, proteins provide essential amino acids for bacterial metabolism, and nitrogenous waste supplies additional nitrogen for cellular processes. Together, these substances create an environment conducive to bacterial growth and the production of odor-causing compounds.

This option allows for the patient to be cleaned and refreshed without causing excessive stress or discomfort. It may involve cleaning specific areas of the body that are necessary for hygiene purposes, while avoiding areas that may be particularly sensitive or painful for the patient. This approach ensures that the patient's cleanliness and well-being are maintained while also taking into consideration their individual needs and comfort levels.

    A partial bath refers to cleansing only specific areas of the body that may cause odor or discomfort, rather than bathing the entire body. This can include areas such as the underarms, groin, and feet. This practice is often recommended for individuals who are unable to take a full bath due to physical limitations or medical conditions. Therefore, the statement "Partial bath means cleanse only the areas that may cause odor or discomfort" is true.

    Wash patients extremities from ____

    • A.

    • B.

      Proximal to Distal

    • C.

      Distal to Proximal

    Correct Answer
    C. Distal to Proximal
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Distal to Proximal." This means that when washing a patient's extremities, you should start from the farthest point (distal) and move towards the body (proximal). This method helps to prevent the spread of dirt, bacteria, or infection from the extremities to the rest of the body. Starting at the distal end ensures that any contaminants are washed away from the body rather than towards it.

      90

    Correct Answer
    A. 45
    Explanation
    When brushing the teeth of a patient, it is recommended to hold the brush at a 45-degree angle. This angle allows the bristles of the brush to effectively clean both the teeth and the gumline. Holding the brush at a 45-degree angle ensures that the bristles can reach the areas where plaque and bacteria tend to accumulate, promoting proper oral hygiene and preventing dental issues such as cavities and gum disease.

      Tub Bath

    • E.

    A chair bath is not a type of bath because it does not involve the use of water. In a towel bath, the person is wiped with a towel soaked in warm water, while in a bag bath, the person is cleaned using pre-moistened disposable washcloths. A shower bath involves standing under a showerhead to wash the body, and a tub bath involves soaking the body in a bathtub filled with water. However, a chair bath refers to a method of bathing where the person is seated on a chair and cleaned using a basin or sponge, without the use of water.

Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that 90% of people with dementia enjoy bathing.

Additionally, hair on the scalp can provide shade and protection from the sun, helping to regulate body temperature further.
