  • 2. 

    What important structure runs around the posterior aspect of the elbow to innervate part of the hand? 

    • A.

      Ulnar nerve

    • B.

      Radial Nerve

    • C.

      Brachial artery

    • D.

      Cepahlic vein

    Correct Answer
    A. Ulnar nerve
    Explanation
    The ulnar nerve is an important structure that runs around the posterior aspect of the elbow to innervate part of the hand. It is responsible for providing sensation to the little finger and half of the ring finger, as well as controlling the muscles that allow for fine motor movements in the hand. The radial nerve, brachial artery, and cephalic vein do not innervate the hand in the same way as the ulnar nerve, making them incorrect choices.

  • 3. 

    How could you test the functionality of the elbow joint? (Can select multiple answers)

    • A.

      Ask the patient to shake hands

    • B.

      Ask the patient to imitate eating

    • C.

      Ask the patient to do press ups

    • D.

      Ask the patient to undo and redo a button

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Ask the patient to imitate eating
    D. Ask the patient to undo and redo a button
    Explanation
    To test the functionality of the elbow joint, asking the patient to imitate eating and asking them to undo and redo a button would be appropriate tests. These actions require flexion and extension of the elbow joint, which can assess its range of motion, strength, and coordination. Asking the patient to shake hands primarily tests the functionality of the wrist joint. Asking the patient to do press-ups primarily tests the functionality of the shoulder joint.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The movement shown in supination.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The movement shown in supination is the rotation of the forearm so that the palm faces up or anteriorly. However, the given statement says "The movement shown in supination" which implies that the movement being referred to is supination. Since the answer is "False," it suggests that the movement shown is not supination, but something else.
