Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What nationality was the scientist that discovered Cholera?

    • A.

      American

    • B.

      Russian

    • C.

      German

    • D.

      Italian

    • E.

      Swedish

    Correct Answer
    D. Italian
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Italian because the scientist who discovered cholera was Filippo Pacini, an Italian anatomist and pathologist. In 1854, Pacini identified the Vibrio cholerae bacterium, which causes cholera, through his microscopic observations of intestinal tissue samples from cholera patients. His discovery was groundbreaking and contributed significantly to our understanding of the disease.

    Cholera is the infection of which major organs?

    • A.

      The brain

    • B.

      The pancreas

    • C.

      The intestine

    • D.

      The stomach

    • E.

      The liver

    Correct Answer
    C. The intestine
    Explanation
    Cholera is an infection caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, which primarily affects the intestine. The bacteria release a toxin that causes the intestines to produce large amounts of watery diarrhea, leading to severe dehydration and potentially life-threatening complications. The infection does not typically involve other major organs such as the brain, pancreas, stomach, or liver. Therefore, the correct answer is the intestine.

    If traveling overseas, what is the best protection from Cholera?

    • A.

      Make sure all food is cooked properly, and don't drink unboiled water

    • B.

      Avoid contact with the infected

    • C.

      Keep well hydrated

    • D.

      Take the vaccination beforehand

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Make sure all food is cooked properly, and don't drink unboiled water
    Explanation
    The best protection from cholera when traveling overseas is to make sure all food is cooked properly and to avoid drinking unboiled water. Cholera is primarily spread through contaminated food and water, so ensuring that food is cooked thoroughly and that water is boiled before consumption can greatly reduce the risk of infection. Avoiding contact with infected individuals and staying well hydrated are also important for general health, but they may not specifically protect against cholera. Taking the vaccination beforehand can provide additional protection, but it is not mentioned as the best protection in this context.

    What is the main cause for the existence of Cholera today?

    • A.

      Sharing needles

    • B.

      Overcrowding

    • C.

      Poor water-treatment facilities

    • D.

      Rodents

    • E.

      Insects

    Correct Answer
    C. Poor water-treatment facilities
    Explanation
    Poor water-treatment facilities are the main cause for the existence of Cholera today. Cholera is a waterborne disease caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, which spreads through contaminated water and food. In areas where water-treatment facilities are inadequate or nonexistent, the risk of cholera outbreaks is high. Without proper treatment, contaminated water sources can easily transmit the bacteria to humans, leading to the continued existence of cholera as a public health concern.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    After initial diarrhea, muscle cramps, and vomiting, what is the main threat from Cholera?

    Correct Answer
    Dehydration
    dehydration
    lack of water
    water
    Explanation
    The main threat from Cholera is dehydration. Cholera is a bacterial infection that causes severe diarrhea and vomiting, leading to excessive loss of fluids from the body. This loss of fluids can quickly lead to dehydration, which can be life-threatening if not treated promptly. Therefore, dehydration is the main concern in Cholera cases, as it can result in electrolyte imbalances and organ failure.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The Cholera vaccine is not recommended by the USA, Why?

    • A.

      The vaccine has a reputation for side effects

    • B.

      The vaccine only lasts for a short time

    • C.

      The vaccine has a chance to infect the user

    • D.

      Both a + b

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Both a + b
    Explanation
    The Cholera vaccine is not recommended by the USA because it has a reputation for side effects and it only provides protection for a short period of time. Both of these factors contribute to the decision of not recommending the vaccine. The side effects may outweigh the potential benefits, and the short duration of protection may not make it an effective long-term solution for preventing cholera. Therefore, the USA does not recommend the Cholera vaccine due to these reasons.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    If I have no symptoms I am anomatic?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because the correct term is "asymptomatic" and not "anomatic". Asymptomatic refers to a condition where a person does not exhibit any symptoms of a particular disease or condition, even though they may still be infected. "Anomatic" is not a recognized term in medical terminology. Therefore, the statement "If I have no symptoms, I am anomatic" is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Anomatic is not the correct term for having no symptoms. What is?

    Correct Answer
    Asymptomatic
    Explanation
    The term "asymptomatic" is used to describe a condition or disease in which a person does not exhibit any symptoms. It is the correct term for having no symptoms. "Anomatic" is not a recognized term and does not have any meaning related to the absence of symptoms.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If left untreated, what is the death rate for the more severe cases of Cholera?

    • A.

      10-20%

    • B.

      21-30%

    • C.

      31-40%

    • D.

      +50%

    Correct Answer
    D. +50%
    Explanation
    If left untreated, the death rate for the more severe cases of Cholera is over 50%. This means that more than half of the individuals with severe Cholera symptoms will die if they do not receive any treatment. Cholera is a highly contagious and potentially life-threatening bacterial infection that causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. Without proper medical intervention, the body's fluid balance can become severely disrupted, leading to organ failure and death. Therefore, it is crucial to seek medical attention and receive appropriate treatment to improve the chances of survival.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If properly treated, this death rate is reduced to how much?

    • A.

      5% or over

    • B.

      4%

    • C.

      3%

    • D.

      2%

    • E.

      1% or under

    Correct Answer
    E. 1% or under
    Explanation
    If properly treated, the death rate is reduced to 1% or under. This means that when individuals receive appropriate medical care and treatment, the likelihood of death is significantly decreased to 1% or less. This emphasizes the importance of timely and effective medical intervention in reducing mortality rates.
