Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Directions: Read the generalization. Then choose YES for each conclusion that is valid based on the generalization and NO for each conclusion that is not valid.GENERALIZATION: A stroke is a condition in which there is lessening or loss of consciousness, sensation, and motion caused by the rupture or obstruction of an artery of the brain.

  • 2. 

    A cerebral hemorrhage occurs when a defective brain artery bursts; therefore, a cerebral hemorrhage often can lead to a stroke.

    • A.

      YES

    • B.

      NO

    Correct Answer
    A. YES
    Explanation
    A cerebral hemorrhage occurs when a defective brain artery bursts, resulting in bleeding in the brain. This bleeding can cause damage to brain cells and disrupt the normal functioning of the brain. A stroke, on the other hand, refers to a disruption of blood flow to the brain, which can also lead to brain cell damage. Since a cerebral hemorrhage involves bleeding in the brain, it can indeed lead to a stroke. Therefore, the answer is YES.

  • 3. 

    An embolism is the sudden blockage of a blood vessel by a mass or an air bubble in the blood; therefore, an embolism in the brain can lead to a stroke.

    • A.

      YES

    • B.

      NO

    Correct Answer
    A. YES
    Explanation
    An embolism refers to the blockage of a blood vessel by a mass or air bubble in the blood. When an embolism occurs in the brain, it can disrupt the blood supply to certain areas, leading to a stroke. This happens because the blockage prevents oxygen and nutrients from reaching the brain cells, causing them to die. Therefore, the statement "an embolism in the brain can lead to a stroke" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A tumor is a mass of tissue that does not swell and that rises from tissue that already exist; therefore, brain tumors generally lead to a stroke.

    • A.

      YES

    • B.

      NO

    Correct Answer
    B. NO
    Explanation
    The statement given in the question is incorrect. A tumor is an abnormal growth of cells, and it can either be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). While brain tumors can cause symptoms similar to a stroke, they do not directly lead to a stroke. Strokes occur when there is a disruption of blood flow to the brain, usually caused by a blood clot or a burst blood vessel. Brain tumors can indirectly increase the risk of stroke if they exert pressure on blood vessels or cause other complications, but they do not generally lead to a stroke.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    An aneurysm is a permanent, abnoraml, blood-filled swelling of a vessel; therefore, the rupture of an aneurysm can cause a stroke.

    • A.

      YES

    • B.

      NO

    Correct Answer
    A. YES
    Explanation
    An aneurysm is a condition where there is a permanent, abnormal swelling of a blood vessel. When an aneurysm ruptures, it can lead to bleeding in the brain, which can cause a stroke. Therefore, the statement "the rupture of an aneurysm can cause a stroke" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Phlebitis is the inflammation of a vein; varicose veins are abnormally swollen or dialated veins; therefore, phlebitis and varicose veins can lead to a stroke.

    • A.

      YES

    • B.

      NO

    Correct Answer
    B. NO
    Explanation
    Phlebitis and varicose veins are both conditions related to veins, but they do not directly cause a stroke. A stroke is typically caused by a blockage or rupture of a blood vessel in the brain, not by inflammation or swelling of veins in other parts of the body. Therefore, the statement that phlebitis and varicose veins can lead to a stroke is incorrect.
