Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What should you use to remove a bee's stinger from your body

    • A.

      Your Hands

    • B.

      Credit Card or Plastic Card

    • C.

      Tweazers

    • D.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    B. Credit Card or Plastic Card
    Explanation
    A credit card or plastic card can be used to remove a bee's stinger from your body because the edge of the card can be slid under the stinger and then lifted out, without squeezing it and releasing more venom. Using your hands or tweezers may not be as effective as they can potentially squeeze the stinger and inject more venom into your body.

    The Tetanus virus is carried on Animial's Faces

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tetanus is caused by the bacteria Clostridium tetani, not a virus. The bacteria is commonly found in soil, dust, and animal feces. While animals can carry the bacteria on their bodies, it is not specifically carried on their faces. Therefore, the statement that the Tetanus virus is carried on animal's faces is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The epipen is injected into which body part.

    • A.

      Neck

    • B.

      Thigh

    • C.

      Arm

    • D.

      Stomach

    Correct Answer
    B. Thigh
    Explanation
    The correct answer is thigh because the epipen is typically injected into the outer portion of the thigh. This area is chosen because it has a large muscle mass and is easily accessible, allowing for quick absorption of the medication into the bloodstream. Injecting the epipen into the thigh ensures that the medication reaches the system rapidly, which is crucial in cases of severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis.

  • 4. 

    If bitten by a rabid animal you should call animal control not 911

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Calling animal control instead of 911 when bitten by a rabid animal is not the correct action to take. When facing a medical emergency, it is crucial to call for immediate medical assistance, which is provided by 911. Rabies is a serious and potentially fatal disease, and prompt medical attention is necessary to receive appropriate treatment and prevent the virus from spreading. Animal control may be contacted afterward to address the issue of the rabid animal, but the priority should always be to seek immediate medical help by calling 911.

  • 5. 

    Rabies is often spread through animal bites

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Rabies is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system and is primarily transmitted through the saliva of infected animals, usually through bites. The virus can be present in the saliva of an infected animal even before symptoms appear. Therefore, it is true that rabies is often spread through animal bites.
