Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What injection angle should you use for intramuscular?

    • A.

      45

    • B.

      10

    • C.

      90

    Correct Answer
    C. 90
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 90. When administering medication via intramuscular injection, a 90-degree angle should be used. This angle ensures that the needle is inserted directly into the muscle, allowing for proper absorption and effectiveness of the medication. Using a different angle may result in suboptimal absorption or potential injury to the surrounding tissues.

Blood pressure is an important indicator of overall health and can be influenced by factors such as age, weight, and lifestyle habits. Maintaining a healthy blood pressure is important for preventing cardiovascular diseases and maintaining overall well-being.

    A synthetic cast is preferred over a plastic or plaster cast because it is lighter, stronger, and more water-resistant. This means that it provides better comfort and mobility for the patient, as it is not as heavy or restrictive. Additionally, the synthetic material is more durable and less likely to break or crack compared to plastic or plaster. It is also able to withstand exposure to water, allowing the patient to shower or swim without worrying about damaging the cast. Overall, a synthetic cast offers better functionality and convenience compared to other types of casts.

    WHAT INJECTION ANGLE SHOULD YOU USE TO ADMINISTER A SUBCUTANEOUS INJECTION?

    • A.

      10 DEGREE

    • B.

      90 DEGREE

    • C.

      45 DEGREE

    Correct Answer
    C. 45 DEGREE
    Explanation
    To administer a subcutaneous injection, a 45-degree angle should be used. This angle allows for proper delivery of medication into the fatty tissue layer just beneath the skin. A 10-degree angle would be too shallow and may result in the medication being deposited in the skin rather than the subcutaneous tissue. A 90-degree angle would be too deep and may result in the medication being injected into the muscle, which is not the intended route for a subcutaneous injection.

This form is used by healthcare providers to provide detailed information about the services rendered to the patient, including diagnosis, treatment, and costs. The CMS 1500 form ensures that the insurance company has all the necessary information to process the claim and make the appropriate reimbursement to the healthcare provider.

    Correct Answer
    B. HYPNOTIC

    A drug that produces sleep is commonly referred to as a hypnotic. Hypnotics are medications that are used to induce or maintain sleep. They work by slowing down the activity in the brain, making the person feel drowsy and promoting sleep. Sedatives and tranquilizers can also have a calming effect, but they may not specifically target sleep induction like hypnotics do. Therefore, the most appropriate answer for a drug that produces sleep is a hypnotic.

    Arterioles are small arteries that branch out from larger arteries and lead to capillaries. They play a crucial role in regulating blood flow and blood pressure by constricting or dilating. Arterioles have a smaller diameter compared to arteries, allowing them to control the amount of blood that reaches different organs and tissues. Therefore, arterioles are the correct answer for the question.

The biohazard label helps to ensure that proper precautions are taken to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and to protect the health and safety of those who come into contact with the container. It is required by OSHA regulations to label containers that contain blood or other potentially infectious materials. HIPAA regulations, on the other hand, pertain to the privacy and security of protected health information and are not directly relevant to labeling blood containers.

    Explanation
    An intradermal injection is performed at a 10-15 degree angle. This type of injection involves injecting a small amount of medication into the dermis, which is the layer of skin just below the epidermis. The angle of insertion is shallow because the medication is intended to be absorbed slowly into the bloodstream through the capillaries in the dermis. Intradermal injections are commonly used for skin testing, such as tuberculosis or allergy tests.

Therefore, a stool sample is the appropriate choice for testing occult blood.
