    Which of the following is a test used to monitor heparin level?

    • A.

      A. SST

    • B.

      B. ACT

    • C.

      C. POCT

    • D.

      D. H& H

    Correct Answer
    B. B. ACT
    Explanation
    The correct answer is B. ACT. ACT stands for Activated Clotting Time, which is a test used to monitor heparin levels. Heparin is an anticoagulant medication, and ACT measures the time it takes for blood to clot in the presence of heparin. By monitoring the ACT, healthcare professionals can ensure that the patient is receiving the appropriate dose of heparin and that their blood is not clotting excessively or insufficiently. SST (A) stands for Serum Separator Tube, which is a type of blood collection tube. POCT (C) stands for Point-of-Care Testing, which refers to diagnostic tests performed at or near the patient. H&H (D) stands for Hemoglobin and Hematocrit, which are measures of red blood cells in the blood.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. chilled
    Explanation
    The correct answer is D. chilled. Lactic acid is a sensitive compound that can easily degrade or undergo chemical reactions at higher temperatures. By chilling the sample, it helps to slow down any potential reactions and preserve the integrity of the compound. This ensures that accurate and reliable results can be obtained when analyzing or testing the lactic acid sample.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is C. Partial Thromboplastine Time. PTT is a blood test that measures the time it takes for blood to clot. It is used to assess the function of the clotting factors involved in the intrinsic pathway of coagulation. This test is commonly used to monitor patients on anticoagulant therapy, diagnose bleeding disorders, and evaluate liver function.

    Do veins have valves?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Veins do have valves. These valves are responsible for preventing the backflow of blood and ensuring that it flows in one direction towards the heart. When the muscles surrounding the veins contract, the valves open, allowing blood to flow towards the heart. After the contraction, the valves close, preventing the blood from flowing backward. This mechanism helps to maintain the proper circulation of blood throughout the body.

    The term distal means

    • A.

      A. Farthest from the point of attachment

    • B.

      B. Higher or above

    • C.

      C. Nearest to the center of the body

    • D.

      D. Toward the back

    Correct Answer
    A. A. Farthest from the point of attachment
    Explanation
    The term distal refers to a location that is farthest from the point of attachment. It is used to describe the position of a body part that is farther away from the center or the point of origin. In anatomical terms, distal is the opposite of proximal, which means closer to the center or point of attachment. Therefore, option A is the correct answer as it accurately defines the term distal.

    Which of the following is a nervous system disorder?

    • A.

      A. Hepatits

    • B.

      B. Multiple Sclerosis

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Multiple Sclerosis
    Explanation
    Multiple Sclerosis is a nervous system disorder characterized by the immune system mistakenly attacking the protective covering of nerve fibers in the central nervous system. This results in communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body, leading to various symptoms such as muscle weakness, coordination difficulties, and cognitive impairments. Hepatitis, nephritis, and pruritus are not nervous system disorders but rather conditions affecting the liver, kidneys, and skin respectively.

    Which analytes have higher reference values for males than females?

    • A.

      A. Cholesterol

    • B.

      B. Glucose

    • C.

      C. Hematocrit

    • D.

      D. Potassium

    Correct Answer
    C. C. Hematocrit
    Explanation
    Hematocrit is a measure of the proportion of red blood cells in the blood. It is generally higher in males compared to females due to physiological differences. This is because males typically have a higher red blood cell count and larger blood volume than females. Therefore, the reference values for hematocrit are higher in males than in females. Cholesterol, glucose, and potassium do not have significant differences in reference values between males and females.

EDTA is an anticoagulant that prevents blood from clotting by binding to calcium ions, which are necessary for the coagulation process. Lavender tubes are commonly used for hematology tests, such as complete blood count (CBC), as they preserve the integrity of blood cells and prevent clotting during transportation and analysis.
