    The direction of movement the arm does when the deltoid muscle flexes is:

    • A.

      Flexion

    • B.

      Extension

    • C.

      Abduction

    • D.

      Adduction

    Correct Answer
    D. Adduction
    Explanation
    When the deltoid muscle flexes, it causes adduction of the arm. Adduction refers to the movement of a body part towards the midline of the body. In this case, the deltoid muscle contracts and pulls the arm closer to the body's midline. Flexion refers to the bending of a joint, extension refers to the straightening of a joint, and abduction refers to the movement of a body part away from the midline. However, in the context of the question, the correct answer is adduction.

    Round to the hundreths space - show your work 0.2222 + 0.0003 + 0.216 =

    Correct Answer
    0.44
    Explanation
    The given problem asks to round the sum of 0.2222, 0.0003, and 0.216 to the hundredths place. Adding these numbers together, we get 0.4385. Since the hundredths place is the second decimal place, we look at the digit in the third decimal place, which is 8. Since 8 is greater than or equal to 5, we round up the digit in the hundredths place, which is 3. Therefore, the rounded answer is 0.44.

    The process of rendering a patient immune is:

    • A.

      Vaccine

    • B.

      Antitoxin

    • C.

      Subcutaneous

    • D.

      Immunization

    Correct Answer
    D. Immunization
    Explanation
    Immunization is the process of rendering a patient immune. It involves the administration of a vaccine, which stimulates the immune system to produce an immune response against a specific pathogen. This response helps the body recognize and fight off the pathogen in case of future exposure, providing long-term protection. Antitoxin, on the other hand, is a substance used to neutralize toxins produced by pathogens, but it does not confer long-term immunity. Subcutaneous refers to a route of administration, not the process of rendering a patient immune. Therefore, the correct answer is immunization.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Any substance for prevention of a disease

    • A.

      Vaccine

    • B.

      Antitoxin

    • C.

      Subcutaneous

    • D.

      Immunization

    Correct Answer
    A. Vaccine
    Explanation
    A vaccine is a substance that is used to prevent diseases. It stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies, which provide immunity against specific diseases. Unlike antitoxins, which are used to neutralize toxins produced by bacteria, vaccines work by training the immune system to recognize and fight off specific pathogens. Subcutaneous refers to a method of administration, where the vaccine is injected under the skin. Immunization is the process of becoming immune to a particular disease, often achieved through vaccination.

Therefore, the statement that hand hygiene is a part of standard precautions is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Intradermal injections should be administered at a ___ degree angle

    • A.

      10-15

    • B.

      25

    • C.

      45

    • D.

      90

    Correct Answer
    A. 10-15
    Explanation
    Intradermal injections should be administered at a 10-15 degree angle. This angle is recommended because it allows for the medication to be injected just below the surface of the skin, into the dermis layer. Injecting at this angle helps ensure the medication is properly absorbed and minimizes the risk of hitting underlying structures or causing injury. A steeper angle, such as 45 or 90 degrees, would increase the risk of the medication being injected too deep or into muscle tissue, which could lead to ineffective absorption or potential complications.

    Correct Answer
    B. Alcohol based hand rub (gel or foam)
    Explanation
    Alcohol-based hand rub (gel or foam) is more effective at killing bacteria compared to soap and water. This is because alcohol-based hand rubs contain a higher concentration of alcohol, usually around 60-95%, which has been proven to effectively kill bacteria and other germs. Soap and water, on the other hand, mainly help to remove dirt and debris from the hands but may not be as effective in killing bacteria. Additionally, alcohol-based hand rubs are more convenient and accessible in situations where soap and water are not readily available.

    Correct Answer
    1/10
    Explanation
    To find the product of fractions, we multiply the numerators together and then multiply the denominators together. In this case, we have (2 x 1 x 3) / (3 x 4 x 5). Simplifying this gives us 6 / 60, which can be further simplified to 1 / 10. Therefore, the correct answer is 1/10.
