Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The spinal cord bundles of nerves carry messages to the body’s organs. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The spinal cord is a long, thin, tubular bundle of nerves that extends from the brain and runs down the back. It is responsible for transmitting messages between the brain and the rest of the body. These messages include sensory information from the body's organs and motor signals that control muscle movement. Therefore, it is correct to say that the spinal cord carries messages to the body's organs.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Injury to the spinal cord creates a loss in function if the messages cannot be sent. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When there is an injury to the spinal cord, it can disrupt the transmission of messages between the brain and the rest of the body. This disruption can lead to a loss of function in the affected areas of the body. Therefore, the statement that injury to the spinal cord creates a loss in function if the messages cannot be sent is true.

  • 3. 

    Accidents do not put an individual at risk for spinal cord injuries sent. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Accidents can indeed put an individual at risk for spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries often occur as a result of traumatic accidents, such as car crashes, falls, or sports injuries. These accidents can cause damage to the spinal cord, leading to varying degrees of impairment or paralysis. Therefore, the statement that accidents do not put an individual at risk for spinal cord injuries is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Females are more at risk for spinal cord injuries. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because both males and females are at risk for spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries can occur due to various reasons such as accidents, falls, sports injuries, or medical conditions. The risk factors for spinal cord injuries are not gender-specific, and both males and females can be equally susceptible to such injuries. Therefore, the statement that females are more at risk for spinal cord injuries is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Complete Spinal cord injury means there is no function below the level of the injury. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A complete spinal cord injury refers to a situation where there is a total loss of sensory and motor function below the level of the injury. This means that the individual will have no voluntary control or sensation in the areas of the body located below the level of the injury. In contrast, an incomplete spinal cord injury implies that there is still some degree of sensory or motor function below the level of the injury. Therefore, the statement "Complete spinal cord injury means there is no function below the level of the injury" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    There is no cure for spinal cord injuries. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement "There is no cure for spinal cord injuries" is true. Currently, medical science has not found a complete cure for spinal cord injuries. While there are treatments and therapies available to manage symptoms and improve quality of life, there is no known method to fully restore the damaged spinal cord. Research is ongoing, and advancements are being made, but as of now, a complete cure for spinal cord injuries does not exist.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The lower the injury the more help a person will need.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is incorrect. It should be "The higher the injury, the more help a person will need." This means that the severity of the injury directly correlates with the amount of assistance required. A lower injury would indicate a lesser degree of injury and therefore less help needed, while a higher injury would indicate a more severe injury and consequently more assistance required.

  • 8. 

    Turning and repositioning is important to prevent bedsores. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Turning and repositioning is important to prevent bedsores because it helps to relieve pressure on specific areas of the body that are in contact with the bed or surface for prolonged periods of time. By regularly changing positions, it helps to distribute the pressure more evenly and reduces the risk of developing bedsores or pressure ulcers. This practice also promotes blood circulation and oxygenation to the tissues, which is essential for maintaining skin health and preventing the breakdown of skin integrity.

  • 9. 

    People with spinal cord injuries are prone to bowel and bladder problems. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    People with spinal cord injuries often experience bowel and bladder problems due to the disruption of nerve signals that control these functions. The spinal cord plays a crucial role in transmitting messages between the brain and the bladder or bowel muscles. When the spinal cord is injured, these messages may not be properly sent or received, leading to difficulties in controlling bowel movements and bladder emptying. This can result in issues such as incontinence, constipation, or urinary retention. Therefore, it is true that people with spinal cord injuries are prone to bowel and bladder problems.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    You  rarely see depression with spinal cord injuries. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Depression is a common mental health issue that can occur in individuals with spinal cord injuries. The physical and emotional challenges associated with spinal cord injuries can often lead to feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that depression is rarely seen with spinal cord injuries.
