Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following statements about microorganisms is trum?

    • A.

      All microorganisms are harmful to humans

    • B.

      Healthy humans do not carry microorganisms

    • C.

      Microorganisms are necessary for life

    • D.

      Microorganisms die with 10 minutes of leaving the body

    Correct Answer
    C. Microorganisms are necessary for life
    Explanation
    Microorganisms are necessary for life because they play a crucial role in various ecological processes. They are involved in nutrient cycling, decomposition, and the production of oxygen through photosynthesis. Additionally, microorganisms are essential for the proper functioning of the human body, aiding in digestion, synthesizing vitamins, and supporting the immune system. Without microorganisms, life as we know it would not be possible.

  • 2. 

    The organization that sets recommended practices and standards for care and processing of devices and systems is?

    • A.

      EPA

    • B.

      CDC

    • C.

      AAMI

    • D.

      SGNA

    Correct Answer
    C. AAMI
    Explanation
    AAMI, or the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation, is an organization that sets recommended practices and standards for the care and processing of devices and systems. They provide guidance on various aspects of medical technology, including sterilization, equipment maintenance, and quality control. Their standards are widely recognized and followed in the healthcare industry, ensuring the safety and efficacy of medical devices and systems.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of the following is the circular opening of the eye which controls the amount of light which enters the eye?

    • A.

      Iris

    • B.

      Pupil

    • C.

      Cornea

    • D.

      Lens

    Correct Answer
    B. Pupil
    Explanation
    The circular opening of the eye that controls the amount of light entering is called the pupil. The pupil is located in the center of the iris and can dilate or constrict to regulate the amount of light that reaches the retina. In bright conditions, the pupil constricts to reduce the amount of light, while in dim conditions, it dilates to allow more light in.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Implantable devices:

    • A.

      Should be flash sterilized in extended cycles

    • B.

      Should only be sterilized using Ethylene Oxide

    • C.

      Should not be flash sterilized

    • D.

      Should be discarded if not used

    Correct Answer
    C. Should not be flash sterilized
    Explanation
    Flash sterilization is a method of sterilizing instruments quickly, but it is not suitable for implantable devices. Flash sterilization involves exposing instruments to high temperatures and pressure for a short period of time, which may not effectively kill all microorganisms on the devices. Implantable devices require a more thorough sterilization process to ensure that they are free from any potential contaminants that could cause infection or other complications when implanted into the body. Therefore, implantable devices should not be flash sterilized and should undergo a more rigorous sterilization method.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The inventory control method in which the supplier owns the inventory.  Stores it at the healthcare facility, and does not charge the healthcare facility for it until it is used or lost is referred to as the __________ method 

    • A.

      Safety stock

    • B.

      Stockless

    • C.

      Consignment

    • D.

      Ergonomic order quantity (EOQ)

    Correct Answer
    C. Consignment
    Explanation
    Consignment is the correct answer because in this inventory control method, the supplier retains ownership of the inventory and stores it at the healthcare facility. The healthcare facility is not charged for the inventory until it is used or lost. This arrangement allows the healthcare facility to have access to inventory without having to pay for it upfront, reducing their financial burden and risk.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The number of times per year that inventory is purchased, consumed, and replaced is called the?

    • A.

      Inventory Reduction Rate

    • B.

      Inventory Turnover Rate

    • C.

      Asset Reduction Quote

    • D.

      Balance Sheet

    Correct Answer
    B. Inventory Turnover Rate
    Explanation
    The inventory turnover rate refers to the number of times inventory is purchased, consumed, and replaced within a year. It is a measure of how efficiently a company manages its inventory, indicating how quickly inventory is sold and replaced. A higher turnover rate generally indicates that inventory is being managed effectively, while a lower rate may suggest inefficiencies in inventory management. The other options, such as inventory reduction rate, asset reduction quote, and balance sheet, do not accurately describe the concept of the number of times inventory is purchased, consumed, and replaced.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Of the 3 major low temperature sterilants, which one has the longest instrument turnover time?

    • A.

      Ozone

    • B.

      Hydrogen Peroxide Gas Plasma

    • C.

      Steam

    • D.

      Ethylene Oxide

    Correct Answer
    D. Ethylene Oxide
    Explanation
    Ethylene Oxide has the longest instrument turnover time among the three major low temperature sterilants. This is because ethylene oxide sterilization requires a longer exposure time to effectively kill microorganisms compared to ozone, hydrogen peroxide gas plasma, and steam sterilization. Ethylene oxide gas is a potent sterilant that can penetrate different materials and reach areas that may be difficult to access. However, due to its longer exposure time and the need for aeration to remove toxic residues, the instrument turnover time for ethylene oxide sterilization is longer than the other options.
