### Which has the shortest wave length?

• A.

Gamma

• B.

• C.

Micro Waves

• D.

UV LIght

A. Gamma
Explanation
Gamma rays have the shortest wavelength among the given options. Gamma rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation with the highest energy and frequency.

### What are four requirements for X-ray production?

Vacuum
Source of Electrons
Target
High Voltage
Explanation
X-ray production requires a vacuum to prevent interference from air molecules. A source of electrons is necessary to generate the X-rays. A target is needed for the electrons to collide with, releasing X-rays. Lastly, high voltage is required to accelerate the electrons towards the target, increasing the energy and intensity of the X-rays produced.

### MAs value of an exposure is varied to provide the control of

density
Explanation
The answer suggests that the value of an exposure can be adjusted to control the density. Density refers to the darkness or lightness of an image, with higher density indicating a darker image and lower density indicating a lighter image.

Explanation
HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996. This act was enacted by the US Congress to protect the privacy and security of individuals' health information. It also provides guidelines for the electronic exchange of health information and sets standards for healthcare providers, health plans, and other entities that handle protected health information. The act aims to ensure that individuals can maintain their health insurance coverage even when they change jobs or have pre-existing medical conditions. It also establishes penalties for violations of the regulations outlined in the act.

### What is most likely to cause a fire in the Rad department?

• A.

Spontaneous Combustion

• B.

Smoking

• C.

Electrical short

• D.

Open flames

C. Electrical short
Explanation
An electrical short is the most likely cause of a fire in the Rad department. Electrical shorts occur when there is a malfunction in the electrical system, causing a sudden surge of electricity that can generate heat and sparks. This can easily ignite flammable materials present in the Rad department, leading to a fire. Spontaneous combustion refers to the ignition of materials due to a chemical reaction, but it is less likely to occur in the Rad department. Smoking and open flames are fire hazards, but they are less common in a department that deals with radiation.

### What is PASS

Pull
Aim
Squeeze
Sweep
Explanation
PASS is an acronym that stands for Pull, Aim, Squeeze, Sweep. This acronym is commonly used to remember the proper steps for operating a fire extinguisher. "Pull" refers to pulling the pin to unlock the extinguisher, "Aim" means aiming the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire, "Squeeze" involves squeezing the handle to release the extinguishing agent, and "Sweep" refers to sweeping the nozzle or hose from side to side to cover the entire fire area. These steps are important to effectively extinguish a fire and prevent its spread.

### What is RACE

Remove people
Activate
Close Doors
Evacuate
Explanation
The acronym RACE stands for Remove people, Activate, Close Doors, and Evacuate. In emergency situations, such as a fire, this protocol is followed to ensure the safety of individuals. First, people are removed from the area of danger. Then, the necessary alarms or emergency systems are activated to alert others. Next, doors are closed to contain the fire or prevent its spread. Finally, evacuation procedures are carried out to ensure everyone leaves the building safely. This sequence of actions helps to minimize the risk and potential harm during emergencies.

### Five types of shock are

Neurological, Psychological, Cardiac, Hypovelemic, Anaphylatic
Explanation
The answer provided lists five types of shock: neurological, psychological, cardiac, hypovolemic, and anaphylactic. These types of shock refer to different physiological and psychological conditions that can lead to a decrease in blood flow and oxygen supply to the body's organs and tissues. Neurological shock is caused by damage to the nervous system, psychological shock is a response to a traumatic event, cardiac shock is a result of heart failure, hypovolemic shock occurs due to severe blood loss, and anaphylactic shock is an extreme allergic reaction.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### Signs of shock are

Depressed breathing
Pale
Lower blood pressure
Sweaty
Dilated pupils
Explanation
These signs are indicative of shock because they represent the body's response to a decrease in blood flow and oxygen delivery. Depressed breathing occurs as the body tries to conserve energy. Pale skin is a result of reduced blood flow to the skin's surface. Lower blood pressure occurs due to a decrease in blood volume. Sweating is the body's attempt to cool down and maintain homeostasis. Dilated pupils are a response to the body's fight-or-flight response, which is activated during shock to increase alertness and awareness.

### What is Hysterosalpingography?

Direct injection via the cervical cannula
Explanation
Hysterosalpingography is a medical procedure used to examine the uterus and fallopian tubes. It involves the direct injection of a contrast material into the uterus through a cervical cannula. This allows for visualization of the uterine cavity and the patency of the fallopian tubes. By injecting the contrast material directly through the cervical cannula, the procedure provides a clear and detailed image of the reproductive organs, aiding in the diagnosis of various conditions such as uterine abnormalities, blockages in the fallopian tubes, and fertility issues.

### Non-verbal forms of communication are:

Hand gestures
Facial expressions
Body language
Eye contact
Explanation
Non-verbal forms of communication refer to the ways in which individuals convey messages without using words. Hand gestures involve using movements or positions of the hands to express meaning or emphasize a point. Facial expressions involve the use of different expressions on the face, such as smiling or frowning, to convey emotions or attitudes. Body language involves the use of postures, movements, and gestures of the body to communicate messages or feelings. Eye contact refers to the act of looking directly into someone's eyes, which can convey interest, attention, or understanding.

### Places for pulse are:

Carotid, Dorsal Redis, Poplileal, Radial, Brachial
Explanation
The given answer lists the places where a pulse can be felt in the body. These include the carotid artery in the neck, the dorsal redis artery in the foot, the popliteal artery behind the knee, the radial artery in the wrist, and the brachial artery in the upper arm. These arteries are commonly used to measure a person's pulse rate and rhythm, as they are easily accessible and have strong pulsations.

### Which of the following are involved with te cardiac impulse?

• A.

SA node

• B.

AV node

• C.

Bundle of HIS

• D.

Purkinje Figers

• E.

All of the above

E. All of the above
Explanation
The SA node, AV node, Bundle of HIS, and Purkinje fibers are all involved in the cardiac impulse. The SA node is responsible for initiating the electrical signal that starts each heartbeat. The electrical signal then travels to the AV node, which acts as a gatekeeper, delaying the signal before it passes to the ventricles. The Bundle of HIS conducts the signal from the AV node to the ventricles. Finally, the Purkinje fibers distribute the electrical signal throughout the ventricles, causing them to contract and pump blood. Therefore, all of these structures play a crucial role in the cardiac impulse.

### For a lab test, what is included in a CBC?

Hemoglobin
Hematocrit
Platlet
WBC
RBC
Explanation
A complete blood count (CBC) is a lab test that measures various components of the blood. Hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets, white blood cells (WBC), and red blood cells (RBC) are all included in a CBC. Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels provide information about the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. Platelets help with blood clotting, while WBCs are responsible for fighting infections. RBCs carry oxygen throughout the body. Therefore, all of these components are necessary to assess the overall health and functioning of the blood.
