### What is a routine measurement?

• A.

Pulse rate

• B.

Peak flow

• C.

Running

• D.

Talking

A. Pulse rate
Explanation
A routine measurement refers to a regular and common assessment that is done on a regular basis. In this context, pulse rate is considered a routine measurement as it is a standard practice to measure and monitor the pulse rate regularly to assess the heart's functioning and overall health. It is a simple and non-invasive measurement that provides valuable information about the heart rate and rhythm, helping to identify any abnormalities or changes that may require further investigation or medical intervention.

### What is the correct core temperature?

• A.

37

• B.

32

• C.

27

A. 37
Explanation
The correct core temperature is 37 degrees Celsius. This is the average normal body temperature for a healthy adult. It is important for the body to maintain this temperature in order to function properly. Deviations from this temperature can indicate fever or hypothermia, which can be signs of illness or other medical conditions.

### Is the expected range for breathing rate per minute: 8-14

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The expected range for breathing rate per minute is indeed 8-14. This range is considered normal for adults at rest. Breathing rate can vary depending on factors such as activity level, age, and overall health. However, a breathing rate within the range of 8-14 breaths per minute is generally considered healthy and indicates efficient respiratory function.

### The normal range for pulse rate is...........................

70-80
Explanation
The normal range for pulse rate is typically between 70 and 80 beats per minute. This range indicates a healthy heart rate and is considered normal for adults at rest. A pulse rate within this range suggests that the heart is functioning efficiently and pumping an adequate amount of blood throughout the body. However, it is important to note that individual variations can occur, and factors such as age, fitness level, and overall health can influence an individual's normal pulse rate.

### What is this called?

• A.

NUCLEUS

• B.

ER

• C.

CYTOPLASM

• D.

MITOCHONDRIA

D. MITOCHONDRIA
Explanation
Mitochondria is a double-membraned organelle found in most eukaryotic cells. It is often referred to as the "powerhouse" of the cell because it is responsible for generating most of the cell's supply of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is used as a source of chemical energy. Mitochondria play a crucial role in cellular respiration and are involved in various metabolic processes. They are also involved in other important cellular functions such as cell signaling, cell differentiation, and cell death.

### What is the peak flow monitor used for?

• A.

Measure pulse rate

• B.

Measure blood pressure

• C.

Measure lung capacity

C. Measure lung capacity
Explanation
A peak flow monitor is used to measure lung capacity. It is a handheld device that measures how fast a person can exhale air from their lungs. By monitoring peak flow, individuals with respiratory conditions such as asthma can assess the severity of their symptoms and track changes in their lung function over time. This information helps in managing and adjusting their treatment plan accordingly.
