    Which of the following diagnostic tests would provide the BEST information to rule out the possiblity of a fracture?

    • A.

      CAT scan

    • B.

      Ultrasound

    • C.

      MRI

    • D.

      X-Ray

    • E.

      P.E.T.

    Correct Answer
    D. X-Ray
    Explanation
    An X-Ray would provide the best information to rule out the possibility of a fracture. X-Ray imaging is commonly used to detect fractures as it can clearly show any bone abnormalities or breaks. It is a quick and non-invasive procedure that can provide detailed images of the bones, allowing healthcare professionals to accurately diagnose or rule out fractures. Other diagnostic tests like CAT scans, ultrasounds, MRI, and PET scans may be useful for other purposes, but X-Ray is specifically designed to detect fractures.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement states that Samuel continued his medication for hypertension at the time of his accident. However, the answer is false because the statement does not provide any information about whether Samuel actually continued his medication or not. It only mentions that he had been taking medication for hypertension, but it does not state whether he continued taking it or not at the time of the accident.

It is typically caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors, such as obesity and lack of physical activity. Type 2 diabetes is different from Type 1 diabetes, which is an autoimmune condition where the body does not produce insulin.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    Which of the following diagnostic tests is the most expensive for Mr. Kirk's insurance to pay?

    • A.

      X-Rays

    • B.

      MRI

    • C.

      CAT Scan

    • D.

      Visual Inspection

    • E.

      Ultrasound

    Correct Answer
    C. CAT Scan
    Explanation
    A CAT scan is the most expensive diagnostic test for Mr. Kirk's insurance to pay. This is because a CAT scan involves the use of advanced imaging technology that combines X-rays and computer processing to create detailed cross-sectional images of the body. The equipment and technology used in CAT scans are more expensive compared to X-rays, MRI, visual inspection, and ultrasound, which is why it incurs higher costs for insurance coverage.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Since this client is described as being obese with a weight of 106.6 kilograms and height of 106.6 centimeters. Mr. Kirk would be considered endomorph, he would have a small, depressed chest.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that based on the information provided, the client is described as being obese with a weight of 106.6 kilograms and a height of 106.6 centimeters. This indicates that the client has a high body mass index (BMI) and is likely to have a higher percentage of body fat. Endomorphs are characterized by a higher percentage of body fat, a rounder body shape, and a tendency to store fat easily. Therefore, it can be inferred that Mr. Kirk, being obese and having a higher percentage of body fat, would indeed be considered an endomorph. The statement about him having a small, depressed chest is not directly supported by the given information.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    In teaching Mr. Samuel Kirk about risk factors for cardiovascular disease, choose the  risk factors you recommend to begin changing.

    • A.

      Reduce coffee consumption

    • B.

      Cigarette smoking

    • C.

      Family history

    • D.

      Increase personal exercise

    • E.

      Person's age

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Reduce coffee consumption
    B. Cigarette smoking
    D. Increase personal exercise
    Explanation
    The recommended risk factors to begin changing for Mr. Samuel Kirk in order to reduce his risk of cardiovascular disease are reducing coffee consumption, quitting cigarette smoking, and increasing personal exercise. These lifestyle modifications can have a significant impact on cardiovascular health. Coffee consumption should be reduced as excessive intake has been associated with increased blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Quitting smoking is crucial as it is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Increasing personal exercise helps improve cardiovascular fitness, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the risk of heart disease.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    A CAT scan would not be appropriate for identifying fractures of a bone in the leg.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A CAT scan, also known as a CT scan, is not the most appropriate imaging technique for identifying fractures in a bone in the leg. CT scans are best for visualizing soft tissues and organs, as they provide detailed cross-sectional images. However, when it comes to identifying fractures, X-rays are typically the preferred imaging modality. X-rays are faster, less expensive, and provide a clear view of the bones, making them the go-to option for diagnosing fractures in the leg. Therefore, it is true that a CAT scan would not be appropriate for identifying fractures of a bone in the leg.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Which of the following diagnostic tests would provide the LEAST information to rule out the possibility of a clear and clean bone fracture?

    • A.

      Radiograph

    • B.

      MRI

    • C.

      CAT

    • D.

      Ultrasound

    • E.

      PET

    Correct Answer
    D. Ultrasound
    Explanation
    Ultrasound would provide the least information to rule out the possibility of a clear and clean bone fracture because it is not as effective in visualizing bone structures compared to other diagnostic tests like radiograph, MRI, CAT, or PET. Ultrasound is more commonly used to examine soft tissues and organs, making it less suitable for detecting fractures in bones.

    Rate this question:

  • 26.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement implies that Samuel had not continued his medication for hypertension with the doctor's permission at the time of his accident. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    Which medical history fact(s) would you indicate in your notes could be a causal effect of Mr. Kirk stepping off the curb resulting in his left leg injuries?

    • A.

      Elevated blood pressure

    • B.

      Age

    • C.

      Weight

    • D.

      Diabetes 2

    • E.

      Smoking cigarettes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Elevated blood pressure
    C. Weight
    E. Smoking cigarettes
    Explanation
    Mr. Kirk's elevated blood pressure, weight, and smoking cigarettes could be indicated as potential causal factors for his left leg injuries. Elevated blood pressure can lead to reduced blood flow and circulation, increasing the risk of injuries and impairing the healing process. Excess weight puts extra stress on the joints and bones, making them more susceptible to injuries. Smoking cigarettes can cause damage to blood vessels and impair blood flow, which can also contribute to poor healing and increase the risk of injuries. Age and diabetes 2 are not mentioned as potential causal factors in this scenario.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    As Mr. Samuel Kirk's caregiver at the Mountaineer Clinic Academy. Your recommendations would be to stop smoking and begin an exercise plan.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that as a caregiver at the Mountaineer Clinic Academy, the recommendations for Mr. Samuel Kirk would be to stop smoking and start an exercise plan. This implies that the statement is true, as it aligns with the role and responsibilities of a caregiver in promoting the health and well-being of their patients.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    If your patient does not make positive health changes found in his physical examination. What disease(s) is Samuel most likely to have in the next 5 to 10 years?

    • A.

      Diabetes type 2

    • B.

      Hypotension

    • C.

      Cardiovascular disease

    • D.

      Malnutrition

    • E.

      Lung cancer

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Diabetes type 2
    C. Cardiovascular disease
    Explanation
    If the patient does not make positive health changes found in his physical examination, he is most likely to develop diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular disease in the next 5 to 10 years. These conditions are often associated with poor lifestyle choices such as unhealthy diet, lack of exercise, and obesity. Failure to address these risk factors can lead to the development of diabetes type 2 and cardiovascular disease, which are both chronic conditions that can have serious health consequences if left untreated.
