Medical Gas Distribution & Connections - Quiz


Covers the first part of Rose's 2nd test, end of Ch. 37 Egan's Fundamentals of Respiratory Care as best as I could put together.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What would the pin connections be on a PISS (the people who developed these acronyms have to be chuckling) for use with O2 only.  Be sure to check the box next to both pins that are used.

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    Same format again.  Pins for Heliox at He < 80%.

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      7

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. 2
    D. 4
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2,4. This suggests that for patients with a Heliox level below 80%, pins should be used. The explanation for this could be that pins are more effective in delivering the necessary oxygen to patients with lower Heliox levels compared to other options listed.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    And finally, the pin connections for heliox with He > 80%

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

    F. 6
    Explanation
    It should be noted that there is no pin 7.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    PISS connectors are used with what?

    • A.

      High pressure cylinders with threaded connections (large tanks)

    • B.

      Small cylinders with yoke style connector

    • C.

      Low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment

    • D.

      AOTA

    • E.

      NOTA

    Correct Answer
    B. Small cylinders with yoke style connector
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Small cylinders with yoke style connector." PISS connectors are specifically designed to be used with small cylinders that have a yoke style connector. They are not used with high pressure cylinders with threaded connections (large tanks) or low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    DISS connectors are used with what?

    • A.

      High pressure cylinders with threaded connections (large tanks)

    • B.

      Small cylinders with yoke style connector

    • C.

      Low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment

    • D.

      AOTA

    • E.

      NOTA

    Correct Answer
    C. Low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment
    Explanation
    DISS connectors are used with low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment. This means that DISS connectors are specifically designed to be used with these types of equipment and are not suitable for high pressure cylinders with threaded connections or small cylinders with yoke style connectors. Therefore, the correct answer is "Low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    ASSS (another good acronym) connectors are used with what?

    • A.

      High pressure cylinders with threaded connections (large tanks)

    • B.

      Small cylinders with yoke style connector

    • C.

      Low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment

    • D.

      AOTA

    • E.

      NOTA

    Correct Answer
    A. High pressure cylinders with threaded connections (large tanks)
    Explanation
    ASSS connectors are specifically designed for high pressure cylinders with threaded connections, also known as large tanks. These connectors are not suitable for small cylinders with yoke style connectors or low pressure wall outlets, regulators, and pneumatic equipment. Therefore, the correct answer is high pressure cylinders with threaded connections (large tanks).

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The primary functions of a gas delivery system are to administer medical gas throughout the facility AND reduce gas to working pressure of 60PSI.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct working pressure is 50PSI, make sure to read the whole question and not get tricked by the correct lead-in.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The location where the pressure in a central gas delivery system is lowered from high pressure to working pressure (50 PSI) is at the zone valves distributed throughout the facility.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The pressure is lowered to the working pressure all the way back at the bulkhead/bulk storage area. Zone valves are distribute throughout the facility for maintenance or emergency use, but the pressure is already lowered long before reaching them.
