Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Peri Care

    • A.

      Perineal Care

    • B.

      Perinatal Care

    Correct Answer
    A. Perineal Care
    Explanation
    Perineal care refers to the cleaning and maintenance of the perineal area, which includes the external genitalia and the surrounding skin. This care is important to prevent infection and promote hygiene, particularly in individuals who are immobile, have urinary or fecal incontinence, or have undergone childbirth or surgery in the perineal area. Perineal care involves gentle cleansing, drying, and applying any necessary ointments or creams to keep the area clean and healthy. Peri care and perinatal care, on the other hand, refer to different aspects of healthcare and are not directly related to the cleaning and maintenance of the perineal area.

    Correct Answer
    C. Complains of
    Explanation
    C/O is an abbreviation commonly used in medical contexts to indicate "complains of." It is typically used to describe a patient's reported symptoms or concerns. For example, a medical record might state "C/O chest pain" to indicate that the patient is experiencing chest pain and has reported it to the healthcare provider. In this context, "complains of" is a more appropriate interpretation of C/O than the other options provided.

    Correct Answer
    B. Bowel Movement
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Bowel Movement" because in the given list of abbreviations, "BM" commonly refers to "Bowel Movement." It is a medical term used to describe the process of passing waste material from the digestive system out of the body. The other options, "Body Mass" and "Bed Made," do not match the commonly known meaning of "BM" in medical terminology.

    The correct answer is "Bath Room Privileges." This term refers to the permission or access granted to an individual to use the bathroom. It is commonly used in healthcare settings, where patients may have restrictions or limitations on their ability to use the bathroom independently. The acronym BRP is often used as a shorthand notation in medical documentation to indicate that a patient has been granted the privilege to use the bathroom as needed.

    Correct Answer
    A. Difficulty breathing
    Explanation
    The term "dyspnea" refers to difficulty breathing. This can manifest as a sensation of breathlessness or shortness of breath. It is a common symptom that can be caused by various medical conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), heart failure, or anxiety. Difficulty breathing may be accompanied by other symptoms such as wheezing, chest pain, or coughing. It is important to identify the underlying cause of dyspnea in order to provide appropriate treatment and management.

      Urinalysis

    • C.

      Unattentive

    Correct Answer
    B. Urinalysis
    Explanation
    Urinalysis is the correct answer because it is the only option that is related to the medical field. Unavailable and unattentive do not have any connection to the medical field and therefore cannot be the correct answer. Urinalysis is a diagnostic test that examines the urine for various substances and can provide important information about a person's health.

    Correct Answer
    A. Discharge
    Explanation
    The word "discharge" is the correct answer because it is the base form of the verb, while "discharged" is the past tense form. The question is asking for the correct form of the word, and "discharge" is the appropriate choice in this context.

    • B.

    • C.

      Quite in 3 hours

    Correct Answer
    A. Every 3 hours
    Explanation
    The given answer "every 3 hours" is the correct explanation because the question mentions "q3h" which is a commonly used medical abbreviation for "every 3 hours". This means that a certain action or medication should be done or taken every 3 hours. The additional phrases "quanity 3" and "quite in 3 hours" do not provide any relevant information to the question and can be disregarded.

    Correct Answer
    A. Director of Nursing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Director of Nursing. This is because DON stands for Director of Nursing, which is a position responsible for overseeing and managing the nursing department in a healthcare facility. The Director of Nursing is responsible for ensuring the delivery of high-quality patient care, managing nursing staff, developing and implementing nursing policies and procedures, and collaborating with other healthcare professionals to improve patient outcomes.

    • B.

      Help out of Bed

    • C.

      Head of Bed

    Correct Answer
    C. Head of Bed
    Explanation
    The acronym "HOB" stands for "Head of Bed." This term is commonly used in medical settings to refer to the position of a patient's bed, specifically the angle at which the head of the bed is raised. Adjusting the head of the bed can have various therapeutic purposes, such as improving breathing, reducing acid reflux, or promoting circulation. The other options provided, "Healing of Body" and "Help out of Bed," do not accurately represent the meaning of "HOB" in a medical context.

    A rectal themometer has what color top>

    Correct Answer
    red
    Explanation
    A rectal thermometer has a red top because the color red is commonly associated with caution and warning. In medical settings, red is often used to indicate potential danger or high risk areas. By having a red top, it serves as a visual reminder to healthcare professionals to exercise caution and follow proper procedures when using the rectal thermometer.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    The normal pulse is between bpm

    Correct Answer
    60-100
    Explanation
    The normal pulse rate of a person is typically between 60-100 beats per minute (bpm). This range indicates a healthy heart rate and is considered normal for adults at rest. However, it is important to note that individual variations may exist, and factors such as age, fitness level, and underlying medical conditions can affect the normal pulse rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Bradycardia is bpm, Tachycardi is bpm

    Correct Answer
    less than 60
    higher than 100
    60<
    100>
    Explanation
    This question is asking for the definitions of bradycardia and tachycardia. Bradycardia refers to a heart rate that is less than 60 beats per minute (bpm), while tachycardia refers to a heart rate that is higher than 100 bpm. The answer choices correctly state these definitions by listing "less than 60" for bradycardia and "higher than 100" for tachycardia. The answer choices also include the values of 60 and 100, which are not the definitions of bradycardia and tachycardia, but rather the cut-off points between normal heart rate and abnormal heart rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Where are the following pulse sites located?FemoralCarotidApical

    Correct Answer
    in the leg
    in the neck
    in the chest
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the femoral pulse site is located in the leg, the carotid pulse site is located in the neck, and the apical pulse site is located in the chest. These pulse sites are specific areas where the pulse can be easily felt and assessed. The femoral pulse can be found in the groin area, the carotid pulse can be felt on the side of the neck, and the apical pulse is located on the left side of the chest, just below the nipple.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    Most common site used to take pulse

    • A.

      Brachial

    • B.

      Radial

    • C.

      Apical Radial

    Correct Answer
    A. Brachial
    Explanation
    The brachial artery is the most common site used to take a pulse. It is located in the upper arm, just above the elbow. This site is often preferred because it is easily accessible and the artery is close to the surface of the skin, making it easier to feel the pulse. Additionally, the brachial artery is a major artery that carries oxygenated blood to the arm, making it a reliable site for assessing the pulse rate and rhythm. The radial artery, located in the wrist, is also commonly used to take a pulse, but the brachial artery is generally considered the primary site. The term "apical radial" does not accurately describe a specific pulse site and is therefore not the correct answer.
