Stroke: Symptoms And Causes! Trivia Questions Quiz - Quiz

This trivia question quiz is on stroke: symptoms and causes. Stroke is commonly seen as a disease that only affects the old, but this is entirely not true, and there are different ways through which one can minimize the chances of suffering from it. Take up this quiz and get to see some of the signs that one is having a stroke and how to avoid one.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    In the stroke ICU, each patient needs a neurological assessment at least once every:

    • A.

      Hour.

    • B.

      2 hours.

    • C.

      3 hours.

    • D.

      4 hours

    Correct Answer
    D. 4 hours
    Explanation
    In the stroke ICU, patients require regular neurological assessments to monitor their condition. These assessments involve evaluating the patient's neurological status, such as their level of consciousness, motor function, and sensory responses. Performing these assessments every 4 hours ensures that any changes in the patient's neurological status can be promptly detected and appropriate interventions can be initiated. This frequency allows healthcare providers to closely monitor the patient's condition and make necessary adjustments to their treatment plan, ultimately improving patient outcomes.

    Brain swelling is:

    • A.

      Edema due to injury

    • B.

      Treated with vasodilators, hypo-osmolar IV fluids, and induced fever. Treated with vasodilators, hypo-osmolar IV fluids, and induced fever.

    • C.

      Quite common with minor strokes and transient ischemic attacks (TIAs).

    • D.

      Currently untreatable and invariably fatal.

    Correct Answer
    A. Edema due to injury
    Explanation
    Brain swelling, also known as cerebral edema, is a condition characterized by the accumulation of fluid in the brain tissue. It can occur as a result of injury to the brain. The treatment for brain swelling includes the administration of vasodilators, hypo-osmolar IV fluids, and induced fever. These interventions help to reduce the swelling and improve blood flow to the brain. Brain swelling is not necessarily associated with minor strokes or transient ischemic attacks (TIAs). Additionally, it is not considered untreatable and fatal, as appropriate medical interventions can be effective in managing the condition.

    Clinically, elevated intracranial pressure presents as headache, vomiting:

    • A.

      Fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.

    • B.

      Decreased consciousness, and papilledema.

    • C.

      Elevated white count, cough, and shortness of breath.

    • D.

      Chest pain, tachycardia, and shortness of breath.

    Correct Answer
    B. Decreased consciousness, and papilledema.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Decreased consciousness, and papilledema." Elevated intracranial pressure can lead to compression of the brain, resulting in decreased consciousness. Papilledema, which is swelling of the optic disc, can also occur as a result of increased pressure within the skull. These symptoms are indicative of a potentially serious condition and require immediate medical attention.

    Cushing's triad, a sign of impending crisis from elevated intracranial pressure, is:

    • A.

      Hyperadrenalism, hyperthyroidism, and hypoalbuminemia.

    • B.

      Bradycardia, respiratory depression, and hypertension.

    • C.

      Projectile vomiting, stiff neck, and headache.

    • D.

      Blurred vision, dry mouth, and abdominal pain.

    Correct Answer
    B. Bradycardia, respiratory depression, and hypertension.
    Explanation
    Cushing's triad is a set of clinical signs that indicate increased intracranial pressure. Bradycardia (slow heart rate), respiratory depression (decreased breathing), and hypertension (high blood pressure) are the three characteristic symptoms of Cushing's triad. These symptoms occur as a result of the body's attempt to compensate for the increased pressure in the brain. Bradycardia occurs due to increased pressure on the brainstem, respiratory depression is a response to decreased oxygen levels, and hypertension is the body's response to maintain blood flow to the brain.

    What is the major risk factor for stroke?

    • A.

      Obesity

    • B.

      Diabetes

    • C.

      High Blood Pressure 

    • D.

      Family History of Stroke 

    Correct Answer
    C. High Blood Pressure 
    Explanation
    High blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke because it puts strain on the blood vessels, causing them to narrow and weaken over time. This can lead to the formation of blood clots or the rupture of blood vessels in the brain, resulting in a stroke. High blood pressure also increases the risk of other cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack and heart failure, which are also linked to an increased risk of stroke. Therefore, managing and controlling blood pressure levels is crucial in preventing strokes.
