Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What was the contribution of Ignaz Semmeilwiez?

    • A.

      Physcian who discovered the imporatnce of sterilzing operating room equipment

    • B.

      Discovered the importance of hand washing to prevent disease transmission

    • C.

      Man who contracted TB from his patients and died as a result.

    Correct Answer
    B. Discovered the importance of hand washing to prevent disease transmission
    Explanation
    Ignaz Semmelweis made a significant contribution by discovering the importance of hand washing to prevent disease transmission. He observed that there was a high mortality rate among women giving birth in hospitals, particularly in maternity wards. Through careful observation and analysis, Semmelweis noticed that doctors who performed autopsies before delivering babies had a higher infection rate compared to midwives who did not. He concluded that doctors were transmitting infectious material from cadavers to patients, and introduced hand washing with chlorinated lime solution to reduce the transmission of diseases. This discovery revolutionized the field of medicine and laid the foundation for modern antiseptic practices.

    Which of the following involves preventing the accidental transmission of disease in the laboratory?

    • A.

      Biosafety

    • B.

      Biosecurity

    Correct Answer
    A. Biosafety
    Explanation
    Biosafety involves implementing measures to prevent the accidental transmission of diseases in the laboratory. This includes following proper protocols for handling and disposing of hazardous materials, using appropriate personal protective equipment, and maintaining a clean and controlled environment. Biosafety measures are essential to protect laboratory workers, the surrounding community, and the environment from potential risks associated with handling infectious agents or other biohazards. Biosecurity, on the other hand, focuses on preventing intentional acts of theft, sabotage, or misuse of biological materials.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Ensuring that biological materials are locked up and only available to authorized personnel is one aspect of Biosecurity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because biosecurity involves implementing measures to prevent the unauthorized access or release of biological materials. Locking up these materials ensures that only authorized personnel have access to them, reducing the risk of theft, accidental release, or intentional misuse. This is an important aspect of biosecurity to protect public health and safety, prevent the spread of diseases, and safeguard sensitive research or biotechnological advancements.
