Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Apples are considered fluid as they contain apple juice.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the fact that apples contain apple juice does not make them fluid. Apples are solid fruits, and while they do contain juice, they are not classified as fluids.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Always record the client's intake before he eats, as you may forget to do it later.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not necessary to always record the client's intake before he eats. While it is important to record the client's intake, it can be done at any time before or after the meal. The statement suggests that forgetting to record the intake later is a possibility, but this is subjective and may vary from person to person. Therefore, the statement is not universally true, making the correct answer false.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Most fluids are recorded in cc's.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Most fluids are typically recorded in milliliters (mL) rather than cubic centimeters (cc). One milliliter is equivalent to one cubic centimeter, so they are essentially the same unit of volume. However, milliliters are more commonly used in medical and everyday contexts for measuring fluids.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Rinse the measuring container after use.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to rinse the measuring container after use to ensure accurate measurements for the next use. If the container is not rinsed, there might be residue or leftover ingredients that can affect the measurement and potentially alter the outcome of the recipe or experiment. Therefore, it is necessary to rinse the measuring container after each use to maintain accuracy.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    When a client is on restricted fluids, which of the following would you NOT do: 

    • A.

      Alternate fluids

    • B.

      Give frequent oral hygiene

    • C.

      Record on I&Q slip

    • D.

      Give frequent sips of fluid

    Correct Answer
    D. Give frequent sips of fluid
    Explanation
    When a client is on restricted fluids, it means that they are not allowed to consume a large amount of fluids. The purpose of this restriction is usually to manage a medical condition or to prevent complications. Giving frequent sips of fluid would contradict the restriction and could potentially lead to the client consuming more fluids than allowed. Therefore, it is not something that should be done when a client is on restricted fluids.

    The abbreviation "FF" stands for

    • A.

      Family and friends

    • B.

      Frequent fluids

    • C.

      Force fluids

    • D.

      Free fluids

    Correct Answer
    C. Force fluids
    Explanation
    The abbreviation "FF" stands for "force fluids." This means that it is a term used in medical settings to indicate the administration of fluids to a patient, often through an IV, in order to ensure proper hydration and maintain fluid balance. It is important to force fluids in certain situations, such as when a patient is dehydrated or unable to drink enough fluids orally.

  • 7. 

    If intake and output are grossly different, the body is said to be in a state of _____________.

    Correct Answer
    fluid imbalance
    Explanation
    When intake and output of fluids in the body are significantly different, it indicates a fluid imbalance. This means that the body is not properly regulating the amount of fluid it is taking in and eliminating, leading to an imbalance in the body's fluid levels. This can have various causes, such as dehydration, excessive fluid intake, kidney problems, or hormonal imbalances. A fluid imbalance can have negative effects on the body's overall health and can lead to symptoms like swelling, fatigue, dizziness, and changes in urine output.

    Losing one-fifth of body fluids can result in death.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Losing one-fifth of body fluids can lead to severe dehydration, which can be life-threatening. Our body relies on fluids to function properly, and a significant loss of fluids can disrupt essential bodily processes. Dehydration can cause a drop in blood pressure, impair organ function, and lead to electrolyte imbalances. In severe cases, it can result in organ failure and death. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If the client is incontinent, you cannot record anything on the I&O.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If the client is incontinent, it means they are unable to control their bladder or bowel movements. However, this does not mean that you cannot record anything on the intake and output (I&O) chart. In fact, it is important to accurately document any episodes of incontinence as part of the client's overall health assessment. This information can be useful for determining the client's fluid balance and identifying any potential underlying issues. Therefore, the statement that you cannot record anything on the I&O if the client is incontinent is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When measuring output, read at eye level.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that when measuring output, it is important to read the measurement at eye level. This is because reading at eye level ensures accuracy and eliminates any potential errors that may occur if the measurement is read from an angle. By reading at eye level, one can ensure that the measurement is being taken from a direct and accurate perspective, leading to more precise results. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

    • B.

      Retention

    • C.

      Obesity

    • D.

      Deficit

    Correct Answer
    A. Edema
    Explanation
    Edema is the correct answer because it refers to the accumulation of fluid in the body tissues. This can occur due to various reasons such as inflammation, injury, or certain medical conditions. Edema can cause swelling and discomfort in the affected areas. Retention refers to the body's inability to eliminate waste or excess fluid, while obesity refers to excessive body fat. Deficit refers to a lack or shortage of something, which is not relevant to the context of fluid held by body tissues.

    If the intake equals the output, the body is said to be in a state of _____________.

    Correct Answer
    fluid balance
    Explanation
    When the intake of fluids into the body is equal to the output of fluids from the body, it is referred to as "fluid balance." This means that the body is maintaining a stable level of fluids, with the amount of fluid entering the body being equal to the amount being excreted or lost through various processes such as urine, sweat, and respiration. Fluid balance is crucial for maintaining proper hydration and ensuring that the body's organs and systems function optimally.

    Name four body fluids that would be considered as output:

    Correct Answer
    urine
    emesis
    wound drainage
    blood loss
    excessive perspiration
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes urine, emesis, wound drainage, blood loss, and excessive perspiration. These fluids are considered as output because they are substances that are eliminated or lost from the body. Urine is produced by the kidneys to remove waste products from the blood. Emesis refers to vomit, which is the expulsion of stomach contents through the mouth. Wound drainage is the fluid that comes out of a wound during the healing process. Blood loss occurs when there is bleeding from the body, either externally or internally. Excessive perspiration, also known as sweating, is the body's way of cooling down and regulating temperature.

    The four ways the body loses fluids are _________________,_____________, __________________, and ____________________.

    Correct Answer
    urine
    perspiration
    perspiration
    breathing
    breathing
    intestinal tract
    intestinal tract
    Explanation
    The body loses fluids through various processes, including urine, perspiration, breathing, and the intestinal tract. Urine is one way in which the body eliminates waste and excess fluids. Perspiration, or sweating, helps regulate body temperature and also leads to fluid loss. Breathing also results in fluid loss through the exhalation of moisture in the breath. The intestinal tract plays a role in fluid loss through processes such as digestion and absorption.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If the client has a catheter, it is important to record the amount of urine from the drainage bag because it helps monitor the client's urinary output. This information is crucial for assessing the client's kidney function, fluid balance, and overall health. It allows healthcare professionals to identify any abnormalities or potential issues and make appropriate interventions if necessary. Therefore, it is necessary to record the amount of urine from the drainage bag when a client has a catheter.

    Explain why toilet paper should not be placed in the container when the client urinates if the urine is to be strained.

    Correct Answer
    stone may stick to the paper
    Explanation
    When urine is strained, it is done to check for the presence of stones or other solid particles. Placing toilet paper in the container while urinating can cause the stone or solid particles to stick to the paper, making it difficult to collect a clean sample. This can lead to inaccurate results and potentially affect the diagnosis or treatment plan for the client. Therefore, it is important to avoid placing toilet paper in the container during the urine straining process.
