Ipv, Therapy Vest And Cough Assist - Quiz

The following is an exam to test knowledge on IPV, Therapy Vest and Cough Assist.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is an absolute contraindication for using the IPV?

    • A.

      The patient does not tolerate the trendelenburg position.

    • B.

      The patient has an untreated pneumothorax.

    • C.

      The patient has a migraine headache.

    • D.

      The patient has clear breath sounds.

    Correct Answer
    B. The patient has an untreated pneumothorax.
    Explanation
    An absolute contraindication for using the IPV (Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation) is when the patient has an untreated pneumothorax. A pneumothorax is a condition where air accumulates in the pleural space, causing the lung to collapse partially or completely. Using IPV in this case could worsen the condition and lead to further complications. Therefore, it is crucial to treat the pneumothorax before considering the use of IPV.

    Normal therapeutic range for the IPV is:

    • A.

      20-25 psi

    • B.

      30-35 psi

    • C.

      35-40 psi

    • D.

      40-45 psi

    Correct Answer
    C. 35-40 psi
    Explanation
    The normal therapeutic range for the IPV (Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation) is 35-40 psi. This means that the pressure delivered by the IPV device should be between 35 and 40 pounds per square inch. This range is considered optimal for providing effective and efficient therapy for patients with respiratory conditions. Pressure settings below or above this range may not deliver the desired therapeutic benefits or may cause discomfort or harm to the patient.

    For patients with an artificial airway it may be necessary to deflate the cuff every 5-10 minutes to allow secretions to pass the cuff and be suctioned from the oropharynx?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Patients with an artificial airway often have a cuff inflated around the tube to secure it in place and prevent air leakage. However, this cuff can also trap secretions above it, making it necessary to deflate the cuff periodically to allow these secretions to pass and be suctioned from the oropharynx. Therefore, it is true that for patients with an artificial airway, deflating the cuff every 5-10 minutes can help clear secretions.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    An IPV treatment can be given with the patient in any position?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An IPV treatment, which stands for Intrapulmonary Percussive Ventilation, is a technique used to help improve lung function and clear mucus from the airways. It involves delivering a series of rapid bursts of air into the lungs. This treatment can be given with the patient in any position, as it is designed to effectively reach all areas of the lungs regardless of the patient's position. Therefore, the statement "An IPV treatment can be given with the patient in any position" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The total amount of solution necessary for an IPV treamtents is:

    • A.

      3 ml

    • B.

      5 ml

    • C.

      10 ml

    • D.

      20 ml

    Correct Answer
    D. 20 ml
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 20 ml. This is because IPV (Inactivated Polio Vaccine) is typically administered in a 0.5 ml dose. To complete the treatment, a total of 4 doses are required. Therefore, the total amount of solution necessary would be 0.5 ml x 4 doses = 2 ml. However, it is common practice to add an extra 10 ml of solution to ensure that the full dose is administered. Therefore, the total amount of solution necessary for IPV treatments is 2 ml + 10 ml = 12 ml.

  • 6. 

    If the patient needs to use a mask, it is acceptable to put a flex tube on the manifold?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not acceptable to put a flex tube on the manifold if the patient needs to use a mask. The manifold is a device that regulates the flow of gas to the patient, and it is not designed to accommodate a flex tube. Using a flex tube in this situation could compromise the delivery of gas to the patient and potentially cause harm. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

  • 7. 

    The Cough Assist machine can be used with all patient interfaces (facemask, mouthpiece, ETT, Trach).

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Cough Assist machine is a medical device that helps individuals with compromised respiratory function to effectively cough and clear their airways. It can be used with various patient interfaces such as facemasks, mouthpieces, endotracheal tubes (ETT), and tracheostomy tubes (Trach). This versatility allows healthcare professionals to tailor the treatment to the specific needs of each patient, ensuring optimal effectiveness and comfort. Therefore, the statement that the Cough Assist machine can be used with all patient interfaces is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A full treatment with the Cough Assist includes how many cycles of coughs and rest periods?

    • A.

      10-20 cough cycles, 1-2 minutes of rest

    • B.

      4-5 cough cycles, 1 minute of rest

    • C.

      4-5 cough cycles, 20-30 seconds of rest

    • D.

      2-3 cough cycles, 10-20 seconds of rest

    Correct Answer
    C. 4-5 cough cycles, 20-30 seconds of rest
    Explanation
    The full treatment with the Cough Assist includes 4-5 cough cycles, each followed by a rest period of 20-30 seconds. This allows for a sufficient number of coughs to help clear the airways and remove mucus, while also providing adequate rest periods to prevent fatigue and discomfort. This cycle is repeated throughout the treatment to effectively assist with coughing and improve respiratory function.

    What patient populations can use the ThAIRapy Vest?

    • A.

      Adult Only

    • B.

      Children Only

    • C.

      Adults and Children

    • D.

      Only adults and children who currently have one at home

    Correct Answer
    C. Adults and Children
    Explanation
    The ThAIRapy Vest can be used by both adults and children. It is not limited to any specific patient population. This means that individuals of all ages can benefit from using the ThAIRapy Vest for their respiratory needs. The vest is designed to provide therapy for a wide range of patients, making it suitable for both adults and children.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Choose the correct description of how a ThAIRapy Vest works:

    • A.

      An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 40 cm H2O at frequencies of 10-40 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.

    • B.

      An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 50 cm H2O at frequencies of 5-25 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.

    • C.

      An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 10 cm H2O at frequencies of 5-35 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.

    Correct Answer
    B. An inflatable vest attaches to hoses to an air-pulsed generator producing pressures to about 50 cm H2O at frequencies of 5-25 Hz. High frequency chest wall oscillation creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.
    Explanation
    The ThAIRapy Vest works by attaching an inflatable vest to hoses connected to an air-pulsed generator. This generator produces pressures of about 50 cm H2O at frequencies of 5-25 Hz. The high frequency chest wall oscillation created by the vest creates mini-coughs that dislodge mucus from the bronchial walls and increases mobilization to the central airways.
