Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the other name for ESRD?

    • A.

      Chronic Renal Failure

    • B.

      Chronic Kidney Disease

    • C.

      End Stage Renal Disease

    • D.

      Chronic creatinine Disease

    Correct Answer
    B. Chronic Kidney Disease
    Explanation
    ESRD stands for End Stage Renal Disease, which is the final stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD). CKD is a progressive condition where the kidneys gradually lose their ability to function properly. When CKD reaches its end stage, the kidneys are no longer able to perform their essential functions, such as filtering waste and excess fluid from the blood. Therefore, ESRD is another name for CKD, representing the advanced and severe stage of kidney disease.

      5

    Correct Answer
    E. 5
    Explanation
    Stage 5 of ESRD (End-Stage Renal Disease) indicates established renal failure. This stage is the most advanced and severe stage of kidney disease, where the kidneys have lost almost all of their function. At this stage, the kidneys are unable to effectively filter waste and excess fluid from the blood, leading to a buildup of toxins and fluid in the body. Patients with stage 5 ESRD require dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive.

    Based off of the information provided, what are the causes of ESRD?

    • A.

      Diabetic nephropathy, hypertention, and glomerulonephritis

    • B.

      HIV, Hypernephritis, and Diabetic nephropathy

    • C.

      Pericarditis, Arrhythmias, and hyperkalemia

    Correct Answer
    A. Diabetic nephropathy, hypertention, and glomerulonephritis
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Diabetic nephropathy, hypertention, and glomerulonephritis. These three conditions are known to be common causes of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Diabetic nephropathy refers to kidney damage caused by diabetes, hypertention refers to high blood pressure that can damage the kidneys over time, and glomerulonephritis is inflammation of the glomeruli in the kidneys which can lead to kidney failure. Therefore, these three conditions can all contribute to the development of ESRD.

    • A.

      The time in which the patient first starts their GHP coverage

    • B.

    • C.

      A coordination period in which the patients Medicare must pay benefits first for the patients or a covered family member during the first 30 months of eligibility or entitlement for Part A benefits because of ESRD entitlement

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. A coordination period in which the patients GHP plan must pay benefits first for the patients or a covered family member during the first 30 months of eligibility or entitlement for Part A benefits because of ESRD entitlement
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a coordination period in which the patient's GHP plan must pay benefits first for the patient or a covered family member during the first 30 months of eligibility or entitlement for Part A benefits because of ESRD entitlement. This means that during the initial 30 months of eligibility or entitlement for Part A benefits due to End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), the patient's Group Health Plan (GHP) coverage takes precedence and must provide primary coverage before Medicare pays.

    What are the two ways of recieving dialysis treatments?

    • A.

      Diffusion and ultrafiltration

    • B.

      Maintenance dialysis treatment and self dialysis training

    Correct Answer
    B. Maintenance dialysis treatment and self dialysis training
    Explanation
    The correct answer is maintenance dialysis treatment and self-dialysis training. Maintenance dialysis treatment refers to regular sessions of dialysis performed at a healthcare facility, where a machine filters the blood to remove waste and excess fluids. Self-dialysis training, on the other hand, involves teaching patients how to perform dialysis at home, giving them more independence and flexibility in their treatment schedule. These two methods provide options for individuals with kidney failure to receive the necessary dialysis treatments.
