Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following are possible consequences of Atheroma??

    • A.

      A Cold

    • B.

      Aneurysms and/or Thrombosis

    • C.

      Brain Tumour

    • D.

      Asthma

    Correct Answer
    B. Aneurysms and/or Thrombosis
    Explanation
    Atheroma is a condition characterized by the buildup of plaque in the arteries. This plaque can cause the arteries to narrow, leading to reduced blood flow. Aneurysms and thrombosis are possible consequences of atheroma. Aneurysms occur when the weakened artery wall balloons out, while thrombosis refers to the formation of blood clots within the narrowed arteries. These conditions can both lead to serious health complications and require medical intervention.

    What is a brain aneurysm known as??

    • A.

      DVA

    • B.

      CVA

    • D.

      NGL

    Correct Answer
    C. CVA
    Explanation
    A brain aneurysm is known as a CVA, which stands for cerebrovascular accident. This term refers to a sudden disruption of blood flow to the brain, typically caused by a ruptured or blocked blood vessel. A CVA can lead to various symptoms and complications, including stroke, brain damage, or even death. It is a serious medical condition that requires immediate medical attention.

    What are symptons of aneurysms?

    • A.

      Heart Attack

    • B.

      Pain in abdomen, chest or back

    • C.

      Stroke

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the Above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the Above" because aneurysms can cause a variety of symptoms including pain in the abdomen, chest, or back, as well as heart attack and stroke. Aneurysms occur when there is a weak spot in a blood vessel wall, causing it to balloon or bulge. If an aneurysm ruptures, it can lead to life-threatening conditions such as a heart attack or stroke. Therefore, all of the listed symptoms are potential signs of aneurysms.

    FILL IN THE BLANK   This could form a blood clot (...............) and you get THROMBOSIS!

    Correct Answer
    thrombus
    Explanation
    A thrombus is a blood clot that can form within a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood. When a thrombus forms, it can cause a condition known as thrombosis, where the blood clot blocks the normal circulation of blood. This can be dangerous as it can lead to various complications depending on where the clot is located, such as deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. Therefore, in the given sentence, the word "thrombus" fits logically as it explains how a blood clot can lead to thrombosis.

    How many people every year in the uk suffer from DVT??

    • A.

      1 in 1000

    • B.

      1 in 100

    • C.

      1 in 10,000

    • D.

      1 in 2

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 in 1000
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1 in 1000. This means that out of every 1000 people in the UK, approximately one person suffers from DVT every year. DVT stands for Deep Vein Thrombosis, which is a blood clot that forms in a deep vein, usually in the leg. It is a serious condition that can lead to complications if not treated promptly. The prevalence of DVT in the UK is relatively low, with only a small percentage of the population affected each year.

    Flight Socks could potentially save your life...True or False??

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Flight socks, also known as compression socks, are designed to improve blood circulation and prevent blood clots during long flights. Prolonged periods of sitting in a cramped airplane seat can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition where blood clots form in the veins, usually in the legs. If a blood clot travels to the lungs, it can cause a life-threatening condition called pulmonary embolism. Wearing flight socks can help to reduce the risk of DVT and potentially save a person's life during long flights.

    FILL IN THE GAP Myocardinal infaction is commonly due to occulision of a.....???

    Correct Answer
    Coronary artery
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Coronary artery." Myocardial infarction, also known as a heart attack, occurs when there is a blockage or occlusion in the coronary artery. The coronary arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle. When one or more of these arteries become blocked, it can lead to a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the heart, resulting in damage to the heart muscle. Therefore, the occlusion of the coronary artery is commonly responsible for myocardial infarction.

    What are the two basic types of acute myocardinal infarction?

    • A.

      Subendocardial

    • B.

      Monocardinal

    • C.

      Transmural

    • D.

      Trainsmural

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Subendocardial
    C. Transmural
    Explanation
    The two basic types of acute myocardial infarction are subendocardial and transmural. Subendocardial infarction refers to damage that occurs in the inner layer of the heart muscle, while transmural infarction refers to damage that extends through the entire thickness of the heart muscle.

    FILL IN THE BLANK ........................... is a state in which the heart has been damaged so much that it cannot supply enough blood to the organs of the body.

    Correct Answer(s)
    Cardiogenic shock
    Explanation
    Cardiogenic shock is a state in which the heart has been damaged so much that it cannot supply enough blood to the organs of the body. This condition occurs when the heart is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs, leading to a decrease in blood flow and oxygen delivery to the organs. It can be caused by various factors such as a heart attack, heart failure, or severe arrhythmias. Cardiogenic shock is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical intervention to restore blood flow and prevent organ damage.
