    The ability to endure sustained stress is related to which aspect of the general adaptation syndrome?

    • A.

      The resistance phase

    • B.

      The alarm phase

    • C.

      The exhaustion phase

    • D.

      The chronic phase

    Correct Answer
    B. The alarm phase
    Explanation
    During the alarm phase of the general adaptation syndrome, the body initially reacts to stress by activating the fight-or-flight response. This response prepares the body to either confront the stressor or escape from it. It involves the release of stress hormones, increased heart rate, heightened senses, and other physiological changes. While the resistance phase is also related to the ability to endure stress, it occurs after the initial alarm phase and involves the body's efforts to adapt and cope with the ongoing stress. The exhaustion phase occurs when the body's resources are depleted after prolonged exposure to stress. The chronic phase is not a recognized phase of the general adaptation syndrome.

    Which of the following most supports flow of lymph through the healthy body?

    • A.

      Movement

    • B.

      Lymphatic drainage massage

    • C.

      Hydrotherapy

    • D.

      Fluid Intake

    Correct Answer
    A. Movement
    Explanation
    Movement supports the flow of lymph through the healthy body because the lymphatic system does not have a central pump like the heart in the circulatory system. Instead, lymph relies on the contraction of muscles and movement of the body to push it through the lymphatic vessels. When we move, our muscles contract and squeeze the lymphatic vessels, helping to propel the lymph forward. This movement also aids in the removal of waste products and toxins from the body, as well as the transportation of immune cells to fight infections.

    Which of the following sensory receptors detects changes in muscle length?

    • A.

      Chemoreceptors

    • B.

      Photoreceptors

    • C.

      Nociceptors

    • D.

      Proprioceptors

    Correct Answer
    D. Proprioceptors
    Explanation
    Proprioceptors are sensory receptors that detect changes in muscle length. These receptors are located in muscles, tendons, and joints, and they provide information to the brain about the position and movement of the body. They play a crucial role in proprioception, which is the body's ability to sense its own position and movement in space. Chemoreceptors detect changes in chemical concentrations, photoreceptors detect light, and nociceptors detect pain. Therefore, proprioceptors are the correct answer for detecting changes in muscle length.

    • A.

      Development of antigens

    • B.

      Homeopathy

    • C.

      Nonspecific Immunity

    • D.

      Opportunistic invasion

    Correct Answer
    C. Nonspecific Immunity
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Nonspecific Immunity". The inflammatory response is a part of the nonspecific immune response. This type of immune response is the body's immediate, general defense mechanism against any foreign substance or pathogen. The inflammatory response is characterized by redness, swelling, heat, and pain at the site of infection or injury. It is a nonspecific reaction that occurs regardless of the specific antigen involved.

    The gas exchange between blood and tissue is called

    • A.

      pulmonary respiration

    • B.

      Quiet inspiration

    • C.

      External respiration

    • D.

      Internal respiration

    Correct Answer
    D. Internal respiration
    Explanation
    Internal respiration refers to the process of gas exchange that occurs between the blood and the body's tissues. It involves the diffusion of oxygen from the blood into the tissues, where it is used for cellular respiration, and the diffusion of carbon dioxide from the tissues into the blood, where it is transported back to the lungs for elimination. This process takes place within the cells of the body, allowing for the exchange of gases necessary for cellular metabolism.

    What type of food is broken down by amylase in the saliva

    • A.

      Carbohydrates

    • B.

      Fats

    • C.

      Proteins

    • D.

      Amino Acids

    Correct Answer
    A. Carbohydrates
    Explanation
    Amylase is an enzyme found in saliva that helps break down carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are one of the main types of food that our body needs for energy. When we eat foods like bread, rice, or potatoes, amylase in our saliva begins to break down the complex carbohydrates into simpler sugars, which can then be absorbed by the body for energy. Therefore, the correct answer is carbohydrates.

    Correct Answer
    A. Adrenals
    Explanation
    Androgens are male sex hormones that are primarily secreted by the gonads (testes) in males and to a lesser extent by the ovaries in females. However, they are also secreted by the adrenal glands, which are located on top of the kidneys. The adrenal glands produce various hormones, including androgens, cortisol, and adrenaline, which play important roles in regulating metabolism, stress response, and sexual development. Therefore, the correct answer is "Adrenals."

    • D.

      Compression to the Kidney meridian

    Correct Answer
    C. Compression of lower abdomen
    Explanation
    Compression of the lower abdomen may be uncomfortable for a client with stress incontinence because it can put pressure on the bladder and potentially worsen their symptoms. Stress incontinence is characterized by the involuntary leakage of urine during activities that put pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, or exercising. Therefore, applying compression to the lower abdomen could exacerbate the client's condition and cause discomfort.

    A client coughs into their hands during a session. There is no opportunity for the client to wash their hands before leaving the area. What sanitary procedures would the professional need to do before the next client.

    • A.

      Disinfect the table and change the linens

    • B.

      Wash their hands and forearms with hot soapy water

    • C.

      Disinfect any object touched by the client

    • D.

      Spray the air with disinfectant to clear the air.

    Correct Answer
    C. Disinfect any object touched by the client
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to disinfect any object touched by the client. This is important because the client coughed into their hands, which means that any object they touched could potentially be contaminated with germs. Disinfecting these objects helps to prevent the spread of any potential pathogens to the next client. Washing hands and forearms with hot soapy water is also important for maintaining personal hygiene, but it is not sufficient to ensure the cleanliness of the objects in the area. Changing linens and spraying the air with disinfectant are not necessary in this situation as the focus should be on disinfecting the objects touched by the client.
