Fill in the gap: Fluoride Toxicity

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    ___________ toxicity is defined as the long term ingestion over recommended amount.

    Chronic toxicity refers to the adverse effects that occur after repeated or prolonged exposure to a substance over an extended period of time. It is characterized by the ingestion or exposure to a substance in amounts that exceed the recommended or safe levels. Chronic toxicity can lead to various health problems and can have long-lasting effects on the body.

    ___________ is defined as a lethal dose or the amount of a drug likely to cause death if not intercepted by antidotal therapy.

    CLD stands for "Cumulative Lethal Dose," which refers to the total amount of a drug that, if taken without any intervention or antidotal therapy, is likely to result in death. In other words, CLD represents the threshold at which a drug becomes lethal and can cause fatal consequences.

    The STD is ___________ of the CLD.

    The STD is one-fourth of the CLD. This means that the Standard Deviation (STD) is equal to one-fourth of the Coefficient of Linear Dispersion (CLD). The STD measures the amount of variation or dispersion in a set of data, while the CLD measures the relative dispersion of data points around a linear trend line. Therefore, the STD being one-fourth of the CLD suggests that the data points have a relatively low amount of dispersion around the trend line.

  • 4. 

    The adult STD is ___________ g to 2.5 g. 

    The correct answer is 1.25. This suggests that the adult STD (presumably referring to a sexually transmitted disease) weighs between 1.25 grams to 2.5 grams.

    The child STD is determined by age and ___________.

    The child's STD is determined by age and weight because these two factors play a crucial role in assessing the child's growth and development. Weight is an important indicator of a child's overall health and can provide insights into their nutritional status. By considering both age and weight, healthcare professionals can accurately evaluate a child's growth pattern and identify any potential abnormalities or concerns related to their development.

  • 6. 

    Three C’s of fluoride toxicity are coma, ___________, cardiac arrhythmias.

    The question is asking for the missing word that completes the statement about the three C's of fluoride toxicity. The correct answer is "convulsions." This means that in addition to coma and cardiac arrhythmias, convulsions are also a symptom of fluoride toxicity.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    After accidental overdose of fluoride one can administer milk or milk of ___________.

    When someone accidentally overdoses on fluoride, administering milk or milk of magnesia can help. This is because milk contains calcium, which can help counteract the effects of fluoride poisoning. Magnesia, on the other hand, is a common antacid that contains magnesium hydroxide. Magnesium can also help bind to fluoride and reduce its absorption in the body. Therefore, both milk and milk of magnesia can be effective in treating an accidental fluoride overdose.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Death from ingestion of fluoride can occur as soon as ___________ hours.

  • 9. 

    The CLD for children is approximately 0.5 g to ___________ g, though it is based on a child's age and weight.

    The CLD for children is approximately 0.5 g to 1 g, though it is based on a child's age and weight.

    Digital stimulation to induce  _____________ can be appropriate in cases of accidental fluoride ingestion

    Digital stimulation refers to the use of fingers or a digital device to stimulate a specific area of the body. In cases of accidental fluoride ingestion, inducing vomiting can be an appropriate response to remove the fluoride from the body. By using digital stimulation, such as tickling the back of the throat, the gag reflex can be triggered, leading to vomiting. This can help expel the fluoride and prevent further absorption into the body.
