    Choose correct Mode of Action of Cefpodoxime proxetil

    • A.

      Inhibit protein synthesis at Ribosome

    • B.

      Inhibits DNA replication

    • C.

      Breaks the DNA Strand

    • D.

      Inhibit bacterial Cell wall Synthesis

    Correct Answer
    D. Inhibit bacterial Cell wall Synthesis
    Explanation
    Cefpodoxime proxetil is a cephalosporin antibiotic that inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis. This mode of action is achieved by interfering with the formation of peptidoglycan, a crucial component of the bacterial cell wall. By inhibiting cell wall synthesis, cefpodoxime proxetil weakens the bacterial cell wall, leading to cell lysis and ultimately killing the bacteria.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Clavpod has a lower MIC90 (minimum inhibitory concentration required to inhibit the growth of 90% of the bacteria) against H influenzae compared to Co-amoxyclav. This means that Clavpod is more effective in inhibiting the growth of H influenzae bacteria than Co-amoxyclav.

  • 7. 

    Guaiphenesin is a

    • A.

      Mocokinetic agent

    • B.

      Mucolytic agent

    • C.

      Antitussive agent

    • D.

      Nasal decongestant agent

    Correct Answer
    A. Mocokinetic agent
    Explanation
    Guaiphenesin is classified as a mucokinetic agent. Mucokinetic agents are medications that help to thin and loosen mucus in the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough up and clear from the lungs. Guaiphenesin works by increasing the volume and reducing the viscosity of respiratory tract secretions, thus promoting expectoration and clearing of mucus. It is commonly used to relieve symptoms of cough and congestion associated with respiratory conditions such as the common cold, bronchitis, and asthma.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Ambroxol is a

    • A.

      Mucokinetic agent

    • B.

      Mucolytic agent

    • C.

      Antitussive agent

    • D.

      Nasal decongestant agent

    Correct Answer
    B. Mucolytic agent
    Explanation
    Ambroxol is classified as a mucolytic agent because it helps to break down and thin mucus in the respiratory tract. It works by increasing the production of a substance called surfactant, which helps to reduce the viscosity of mucus and make it easier to cough up. Mucolytic agents are commonly used to treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cystic fibrosis. They are different from mucokinetic agents, which help to facilitate the movement of mucus, and antitussive agents, which suppress coughing. Ambroxol is not a nasal decongestant agent, which is used to relieve nasal congestion.

    ASOM stands for

    • A.

      Acute supportive otitis media

    • B.

      All suppurative open media

    • C.

      Acute suppurative otitis media

    Correct Answer
    C. Acute suppurative otitis media
    Explanation
    Acute suppurative otitis media (ASOM) is an infection of the middle ear that is characterized by the presence of pus. It is a common condition, especially in children, and is typically caused by bacteria entering the middle ear through the Eustachian tube. Symptoms of ASOM include ear pain, fever, and hearing loss. Treatment usually involves antibiotics to clear the infection and pain relievers to manage the discomfort. The other options, "Acute supportive otitis media" and "All suppurative open media," do not accurately represent the condition and are therefore incorrect.

    Mode of action of Azithromycin is

    • A.

      Inhibit protein synthesis at Ribosome

    • B.

      Inhibits DNA replication

    • C.

      Breaks the DNA Strand

    • D.

      Inhibit bacterial Cell wall Synthesis

    Correct Answer
    A. Inhibit protein synthesis at Ribosome
    Explanation
    Azithromycin inhibits protein synthesis at the ribosome. The ribosome is responsible for assembling amino acids into proteins. By inhibiting protein synthesis, azithromycin prevents bacteria from producing essential proteins needed for their survival and growth. This ultimately leads to the inhibition of bacterial growth and the elimination of the infection.

This dosage is based on the child's weight and is considered safe and effective for treating various bacterial infections. It is important to follow the recommended dosage to ensure proper treatment and avoid any potential side effects.

    Zithium offers predominantly ________________ action

    • A.

      Bacteriostatic

    • B.

      Bactericidal

    Correct Answer
    A. Bacteriostatic
    Explanation
    Zithium offers predominantly bacteriostatic action. This means that it inhibits the growth and reproduction of bacteria without killing them. Bacteriostatic drugs are often used to control bacterial infections and allow the body's immune system to eliminate the bacteria naturally. In contrast, bactericidal drugs directly kill bacteria. Therefore, Zithium's main action is to slow down the growth of bacteria rather than directly killing them.

    Correct Answer
    D. ENT
    Explanation
    Patients with Otitis Media infection are primarily treated by an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) specialist. Otitis Media is an infection of the middle ear, which is a part of the ear that lies behind the eardrum. ENT specialists specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions related to the ears, nose, and throat. They are specifically trained to handle ear infections, including Otitis Media, and can provide the most appropriate and effective treatment options for patients suffering from this infection. Therefore, an ENT specialist is the correct healthcare professional to treat patients with Otitis Media.
