Prevention Is Key: Understanding Chf And Diabetes - Quiz


This quiz will test the students knowledge about Congestive Heart Failure and Diabetes.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Risk factor(s) for heart failure include:

    • A.

      History of hypertension

    • B.

      Exercising more than 150 minutes per week

    • C.

      Diagnosis of diabetes

    • D.

      Smoking cessation

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. History of hypertension
    C. Diagnosis of diabetes
    Explanation
    The correct answer is history of hypertension and diagnosis of diabetes. Both hypertension and diabetes are known risk factors for heart failure. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, puts strain on the heart and can lead to heart failure over time. Similarly, diabetes can damage the blood vessels and nerves that control the heart, increasing the risk of heart failure. Exercising more than 150 minutes per week is actually beneficial for heart health and can help reduce the risk of heart failure. Smoking cessation is also important for heart health, but it is not listed as a risk factor for heart failure in this question.

  • 2. 

    Symptoms of heart failure include all but the following:

    • A.

      Shortness of breath

    • B.

      Increased appetite

    • C.

      Edema

    • D.

      Dizziness

    Correct Answer
    B. Increased appetite
    Explanation
    Heart failure is a condition where the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. Symptoms of heart failure typically include shortness of breath, edema (swelling), and dizziness. Increased appetite is not a symptom of heart failure. In fact, individuals with heart failure often experience a decreased appetite due to the body's reduced ability to circulate blood and oxygen.

    Identify three ways a heart failure can be prevented.

  • 4. 

    A sign of an urgent issue that requires a medical professional to be contacted, but not a trip to the ER or calling 911 is . . .

    • A.

      Fainting

    • B.

      Fast and irregular heartbeat

    • C.

      Severe crushing chest pain

    • D.

      Weight gain of three pounds in one day

    Correct Answer
    D. Weight gain of three pounds in one day
    Explanation
    Weight gain of three pounds in one day can be a sign of a serious medical issue such as fluid retention or heart failure. While it may not require immediate emergency attention like fainting, fast and irregular heartbeat, or severe crushing chest pain, it still indicates the need to contact a medical professional for evaluation and guidance.

    Screening for Type 2 diabetes should occur every 3 years for asymptomatic adults with a sustained blood pressure above 135/80 mm Hg.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Adults with sustained blood pressure above 135/80 mm Hg are at an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. Therefore, regular screening every 3 years is recommended to detect the condition early and initiate appropriate interventions. This allows for timely management and prevention of complications associated with Type 2 diabetes.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Signs of an emergency in diabetes include all but the following:

    • A.

      Fruity smell to the breath

    • B.

      Frequent urination

    • C.

      Abdominal pain

    • D.

      Rapid breathing

    Correct Answer
    B. Frequent urination
    Explanation
    Signs of an emergency in diabetes include a fruity smell to the breath, abdominal pain, and rapid breathing. Frequent urination, on the other hand, is not a sign of an emergency in diabetes. While frequent urination is a symptom of diabetes, it is not necessarily indicative of an emergency situation.
