Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     Larger particles  are effective deposited to the lungs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) They are filtered by the nose or only reach the large airways

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    With optimal technique devices can deliver up to 50% of medication to the lungs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) Lung deposition ranges up to 15% with most devices.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Nebulisers are more effective at delivering medication than metered dose inhalers

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) Metered dose inhalers can achieve equivalent or even better clinical effect than nebulisers simply by increasing the number of puffs to deliver the same dose.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Breathing patterns do not significantly affect drug delivery

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) With all devices breathing patterns influence deposition in the lungs. Higher flow is bad.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Crying markedly reduces drug delivery

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Crying can actually reduce drug delivery. When a person cries, tears are produced and released from the lacrimal glands. These tears can wash away or dilute any medication that has been applied to the eyes, reducing its effectiveness. Therefore, it is true that crying markedly reduces drug delivery.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Inhalation during sleep with the nebuliser or MDI being delivered close to the sleeping child’s mouth and nose may be a solution for such infants.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
  • 7. 

    Nebulisers should have an oxygen flow rate of 4 l/min

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) A flow rate of 6-8 L/min is required to generate fine particles.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A nebuliser should have a fill volume of 2 milliliters

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false). A fill volume of 4-5 ml is recommended for all medication unless the nebuliser is specifically designed for lower volumes.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Nebulisers are better when used by a mask rather than a mouthpiece

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) Mouthpieces should be used whenever possible.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    A MDI can be easily used without a spacer

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) The delivery of medication via a pMDI without a spacer is highly ineffective

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Excellent hand-breath co-ordination is required for effective use of pMDIs

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Effective use of pMDIs (pressurized metered-dose inhalers) requires excellent hand-breath coordination. This means that the user needs to coordinate their hand movements with their breath in order to properly inhale the medication. Without this coordination, the medication may not be delivered effectively to the lungs, reducing its effectiveness. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Different techniques are necessary depending on the age and capability of the patient

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that different techniques are required for patients of different ages and capabilities. This implies that a one-size-fits-all approach may not be effective in healthcare. Different age groups and individuals with varying capabilities may require tailored techniques and interventions to address their specific needs and ensure optimal outcomes. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    When using a MDI and spacer 4 doses may be fired into the chamber and then inhaled simultaneously

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) Firing multiple puffs of medication into the chamber before inhalation may result in an even lower dose than a single actuation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    (false) Only for infants who cannot breathe through their mouths alone

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Masks are easy to use

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    (false) Poor face mask fit may result in leakage of air around the mask and ineffective deposition. Children often cry.
