    Alveoli serve the function of _____.

    • A.

      Breaking down sugar in the bloodstream

    • B.

      Slowing down the heart rate

    • C.

      Transferring oxygen from air to the blood

      Keeping the lungs free of smoke

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Transferring oxygen from air to the blood
    Explanation
    The alveoli are tiny air sacs located in the lungs. Their main function is to facilitate the exchange of gases between the air and the bloodstream. When we breathe in, oxygen enters the alveoli and diffuses into the surrounding capillaries, where it binds to red blood cells and is transported throughout the body. At the same time, carbon dioxide, a waste product, is released from the blood into the alveoli and then exhaled. Therefore, the alveoli play a crucial role in transferring oxygen from the air we breathe to the blood, making this the correct answer.

    Diabetes Mellitus is an inherited disease caused by _____.

    • A.

      Too much sugar in the bloodstream

    • B.

      The inability of the pancreas to create insulin

    • C.

      Over-consumption of carbohydrate products

    • D.

      Under-stimulation of the liver and spleen

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. The inability of the pancreas to create insulin
    Explanation
    Diabetes Mellitus is an inherited disease caused by the inability of the pancreas to create insulin. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates the amount of sugar in the bloodstream. In diabetes, the pancreas either produces little to no insulin, or the body is unable to effectively use the insulin that is produced. This leads to high levels of sugar in the bloodstream, which can result in various health complications. Too much sugar in the bloodstream, over-consumption of carbohydrate products, and under-stimulation of the liver and spleen are not the direct causes of diabetes mellitus.

    • A.

      The portion and amount of brain damage

    • B.

      The damage done to the respiratory system

    • C.

      The level of cholesterol in the blood

    • D.

      The amount of damage to the heart

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The portion and amount of brain damage
    Explanation
    The severity of a stroke is most dependent upon the portion and amount of brain damage. This is because a stroke occurs when there is a disruption of blood flow to the brain, leading to oxygen deprivation and subsequent brain cell death. The extent of brain damage directly affects the severity of the stroke and the resulting physical and cognitive impairments. The damage done to the respiratory system, the level of cholesterol in the blood, and the amount of damage to the heart may contribute to overall health but do not directly determine the severity of a stroke.

    A drug overdose patient showing signs of sleepiness or sluggishness should be attended to by _____.

    • A.

      Constant stimulation

    • B.

      Administering CPR

    • C.

      Letting him/her relax but not sleep

    • D.

      First checking for dilation of the pupils

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Constant stimulation
    Explanation
    When a drug overdose patient is showing signs of sleepiness or sluggishness, constant stimulation is necessary. This means that the patient should be kept awake and engaged to prevent them from falling into a deep sleep or losing consciousness. This can be done by talking to the patient, gently shaking them, or using other methods to keep them alert and responsive. Administering CPR is not necessary unless the patient stops breathing or their heart stops. Checking for dilation of the pupils may be important in assessing the severity of the overdose, but constant stimulation is the immediate priority.

    The average breathing rate is typically between 12-20 breaths per minute. This range is considered normal for adults at rest. Breathing rate can vary depending on factors such as physical activity, stress levels, and overall health. A breathing rate below or above this range may indicate an underlying medical condition or physiological response.

    Explanation
    Administering fluids should not be done for a stroke victim. Stroke patients may have difficulty swallowing and may aspirate fluids, leading to pneumonia or other complications. Additionally, administering fluids may increase blood pressure, which can be harmful for stroke patients. Therefore, it is important to avoid administering fluids to stroke victims.

      Is the same treatment used for shock

    • C.

      Consists of keeping the upper extremities elevated

    • D.

      Can only be carried out in a hospital

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Is the same treatment used for shock
    Explanation
    The appropriate treatment for heat exhaustion is the same treatment used for shock. This is because both conditions involve inadequate blood flow to the vital organs. The treatment for shock includes laying the patient flat, elevating the legs, and providing cool fluids to drink. These measures help to increase blood flow to the brain and other organs, which is essential in both heat exhaustion and shock. Therefore, the same treatment approach is used for both conditions.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer

    A. The individual leaving the infant is not required to give any identifying information regarding themselves or the infant.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the individual leaving the infant is not required to give any identifying information regarding themselves or the infant.

It does not specify any requirement for approval from specific individuals or limit the use of department tools. Therefore, it provides the most flexible and inclusive guideline for employees to work on personal projects while ensuring that their activities do not negatively impact their work responsibilities.
