    Gas molecules move in __________ motion within a closed space:

    • A.

      Even

    • B.

      Regulated

    • C.

      Random

    • D.

      Circular

    Correct Answer
    C. Random
    Explanation
    Gas molecules move in random motion within a closed space because they constantly collide with each other and the walls of the container. These collisions cause the molecules to change direction and speed, resulting in their random movement throughout the space. This random motion is a characteristic behavior of gas particles and is responsible for their ability to fill the entire volume of the container.

    Which of the gas laws explains why a diver’s tissues take up nitrogen during a dive?

    • A.

      Henry’s

    • B.

      LaPlace’s

    • C.

      Boyle’s

    • D.

      Charles’

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Henry’s
    Explanation
    Henry's law explains why a diver's tissues take up nitrogen during a dive. According to Henry's law, the amount of gas dissolved in a liquid is directly proportional to the pressure of the gas above the liquid. As the diver descends deeper into the water, the pressure increases, causing nitrogen gas to dissolve into the diver's tissues. This is known as nitrogen narcosis, and it can have harmful effects on the diver if not managed properly.

    The double layer of tissue surrounding each lung, and lining the inside of the chest cavity is called the __________.

    • A.

      Peritoneum

    • B.

      Pleura

    • C.

      Pericardium

    • D.

      Meninges

    Correct Answer
    B. Pleura
    Explanation
    The double layer of tissue surrounding each lung and lining the inside of the chest cavity is called the pleura. The pleura helps to protect and cushion the lungs, as well as facilitate their movement during breathing. It consists of two layers: the visceral pleura, which is directly attached to the lung surface, and the parietal pleura, which lines the chest wall and diaphragm. The space between these two layers is called the pleural cavity and contains a small amount of fluid, which helps to reduce friction during lung movement.

  • 5. 

    The hyperoxygenation effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy cease immediately upon completion of hyperbaric chamber decompression.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The hyperoxygenation effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy do not cease immediately upon completion of hyperbaric chamber decompression. This is because the increased oxygen levels in the body continue to have a positive impact even after the therapy session is over. The effects can last for several hours or even days, depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated.

    Hyperbaric oxygen is an approved therapy for all of the following except:

    • A.

      Carbon dioxide poisoning

    • B.

      Clostridial gas gangrene

    • C.

      Selected non-healing wounds

    • D.

      Osteoradionecrosis

    Correct Answer
    A. Carbon dioxide poisoning
    Explanation
    Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber, which increases the amount of oxygen in the blood and promotes healing. It is commonly used to treat conditions such as clostridial gas gangrene, selected non-healing wounds, and osteoradionecrosis. However, it is not approved for the treatment of carbon dioxide poisoning. Carbon dioxide poisoning occurs when there is an excessive buildup of carbon dioxide in the body, and it is typically treated by addressing the underlying cause and improving ventilation. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not effective in removing carbon dioxide from the body.

    A patient has recently undergone a subclavian IV placement. Before continuing hyperbaric therapy, the following is indicated:

    • A.

      Chest x-ray to rule out pneumothorax

    • B.

      Blood cultures

    • C.

      Discontinue hyperbaric therapy

    • D.

      IV heparin to prevent clotting during hyperbaric therapy

    Correct Answer
    A. Chest x-ray to rule out pneumothorax
    Explanation
    After a subclavian IV placement, there is a risk of pneumothorax, which is the accumulation of air in the pleural cavity causing lung collapse. To ensure the patient's safety before continuing hyperbaric therapy, a chest x-ray is indicated to rule out the presence of pneumothorax. This is important because undergoing hyperbaric therapy with a pneumothorax can lead to further complications and worsen the patient's condition. Blood cultures, discontinuing hyperbaric therapy, and IV heparin are not directly related to ruling out pneumothorax and are not the most appropriate actions in this situation.

    Henry's Law states:

    • A.

      In pressure, dissolved gas is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the liquid to which the pressure is exposed.

    • B.

      In temperature, dissolved pressure is directly proportional to the partial gas of the fluid to which the gas is exposed.

    • C.

      In gas, dissolved fluid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the fluid to which the gas is exposed.

    • D.

      In fluid, dissolved gas is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas to which the fluid is exposed.

    Correct Answer
    D. In fluid, dissolved gas is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas to which the fluid is exposed.
    Explanation
    Henry's Law states that the amount of gas dissolved in a fluid is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas in equilibrium with the fluid. This means that as the partial pressure of the gas increases, more of it will dissolve in the fluid. Conversely, if the partial pressure decreases, less gas will dissolve. Therefore, the correct answer is "In fluid, dissolved gas is directly proportional to the partial pressure of the gas to which the fluid is exposed."

    Dalton's Law states:

    • A.

      Total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures that would be exerted by each gas alone as if it alone occupied the total temperature.

    • B.

      Total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures that would be exerted by each gas alone as if it alone occupied the total volume.

    • C.

      Total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures that would be exerted by each gas alone as if it alone occupied the total gas.

    • D.

      Total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures that would be inserted by each gas alone as if it alone occupied the total pressure.

    Correct Answer
    B. Total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures that would be exerted by each gas alone as if it alone occupied the total volume.
    Explanation
    Dalton's Law states that the total pressure exerted by a mixture of gases is the sum of the partial pressures that would be exerted by each gas alone as if it alone occupied the total volume. This means that each gas in a mixture contributes to the total pressure based on its own individual pressure and not on the presence of other gases. The total pressure is determined by adding up the pressures that each gas would exert if it occupied the entire volume of the mixture.

    Charles' Law states:

    • A.

      At a constant pressure the volume of a gas of mass is proportional to the absolute depth.

    • B.

      At a constant volume the temperature of a mass of gas is proportional to the absolute volume.

    • C.

      At a constant temperature the volume of a mass of gas is proportional to the absolute pressure.

    • D.

      At a constant pressure the volume of a mass of gas is proportional to the absolute temperature.

    Correct Answer
    D. At a constant pressure the volume of a mass of gas is proportional to the absolute temperature.
    Explanation
    Charles' Law states that at a constant pressure, the volume of a mass of gas is proportional to the absolute temperature. This means that as the temperature of a gas increases, its volume also increases, and vice versa, as long as the pressure remains constant. This relationship can be expressed mathematically as V/T = k, where V is the volume, T is the absolute temperature, and k is a constant. This law is based on the observation that as the temperature of a gas increases, the gas molecules move faster and occupy a larger space, leading to an increase in volume.

    Boyles' Law states:

    • A.

      At a given temperature the volume of a given gas of mass will vary inversely with the absolute temperature.

    • B.

      At a given temperature the volume of a given mass of gas will vary inversely with the absolute pressure.

    • C.

      At a given time the temperature of a given mass of gas will vary inversely with the absolute pressure.

    • D.

      At a given temperature the pressure of a given mass of gas will vary inversely with the negative pressure.

    Correct Answer
    B. At a given temperature the volume of a given mass of gas will vary inversely with the absolute pressure.
    Explanation
    Boyle's Law states that at a given temperature, the volume of a given mass of gas will vary inversely with the absolute pressure. This means that as the pressure increases, the volume of the gas will decrease, and vice versa. The law is derived from the observation that as the pressure on a gas increases, the gas molecules are pushed closer together, resulting in a decrease in volume. Similarly, as the pressure decreases, the gas molecules have more space to move around, causing an increase in volume. This relationship between volume and pressure is described by Boyle's Law.

    • C.

      Pressure exerted by the negative weight of the atmosphere

    • D.

      Pressure exerted by the weight of the atmosphere

    Correct Answer
    D. Pressure exerted by the weight of the atmosphere
    Explanation
    Atmospheric pressure refers to the force per unit area exerted by the weight of the Earth's atmosphere on any object or surface below it. This pressure is caused by the gravitational pull on the air molecules in the atmosphere. As the weight of the atmosphere increases with the amount of air above a certain point, the pressure also increases. Therefore, the correct answer is "pressure exerted by the weight of the atmosphere".

    • D.

      That part of a dive that increases pressure upon a diver

    Correct Answer
    D. That part of a dive that increases pressure upon a diver
    Explanation
    Compression in diving refers to the increase in pressure that occurs as a diver descends deeper into the water. As the diver goes deeper, the weight of the water above them increases, causing the pressure to rise. This increase in pressure can have various effects on the body, such as compressing air spaces and increasing the density of gases. It is important for divers to understand and manage the effects of compression to prevent decompression sickness and other related issues.
