    The four dimensions of pain are?

    • A.

      Transmission, Transduction, Perception, Modality

    • B.

      Transduction, Transmission, Perception, Modulation

    • C.

      Transportation, Transmission, Perception, Modulation

    • D.

      Transduction, Transmission, Production, Modulation

    Correct Answer
    B. Transduction, Transmission, Perception, Modulation
    Explanation
    The four dimensions of pain are transduction, transmission, perception, and modulation. Transduction refers to the conversion of a painful stimulus into an electrical signal. Transmission involves the relay of this signal from the site of injury to the brain. Perception is the conscious awareness and interpretation of the pain signal. Modulation refers to the regulation and control of pain signals by various mechanisms in the brain and spinal cord.

    Molly broke her leg as a child.  She was left alone and when she broke her leg, she passed out and was not found until many hours later.  Molly has had an accident and does not know if her leg is broke again, but her pain is 9/10.  Molly's mother, who met her at the Emergency Room, holds her hand while she waits. After Molly has her Xray and finds that her leg is not broken, but is fractured, her pain goes down to a 6/10.  What could have caused this reduction?

    • A.

      Her negative emotional response comes from her previous traumatic experience. Once she realizes her leg isn't broken, the pain is decreased.

    • B.

      Molly's nurse told her that the pain was not that bad.

    • C.

      Molly's spiritual response to the pain came from a belief that she was going to be alone through her pain again. Molly's mother being there for her directly positively affects her pain reduction as she is not alone.

    • D.

      Molly probably realized that she was acting like a baby and sucked it up.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Her negative emotional response comes from her previous traumatic experience. Once she realizes her leg isn't broken, the pain is decreased.
    C. Molly's spiritual response to the pain came from a belief that she was going to be alone through her pain again. Molly's mother being there for her directly positively affects her pain reduction as she is not alone.
    Explanation
    Negative past responses to pain not only damage a person's reaction to similar pain, but can also spiritually damage a persons concept of pain. In Molly's case, being alone through pain can increase her perception of pain. Her mother meeting her at the hospital relieved spiritual fears of being alone.

    Dale's Anterior left neck is hurting.  What could this referred pain be related to?

    • A.

      Lung

    • B.

      Kidney

    • C.

      Liver

    • D.

      Heart

    Correct Answer
    A. Lung
    Explanation
    The referred pain in Dale's anterior left neck could be related to the lung. Referred pain occurs when pain is felt in a different area of the body than the actual source of the pain. The lungs are located in the chest, and pain from the lungs can sometimes be felt in the neck and shoulder area. This type of pain is often associated with conditions such as pneumonia, pleurisy, or lung cancer. Therefore, it is possible that Dale's anterior left neck pain is being referred from his lung.

    Steve's right back and right upper chest alternate between being painful.  What referred pain could this indicate?

    • A.

      Lung

    • B.

      Liver

    • C.

      Heart

    • D.

      Kidney

    Correct Answer
    B. Liver
    Explanation
    The alternating pain in Steve's right back and right upper chest could indicate referred pain from the liver. The liver is located on the right side of the body, just below the rib cage. When the liver is inflamed or experiencing issues, it can cause pain that radiates to the back and upper chest. Therefore, the liver is a possible source of the referred pain in this scenario.

    Nueropathic pain is best treated by:

    • A.

      Opioids

    • B.

      Nonopiods

    • C.

      Tricyclic antidepressants

    Correct Answer
    C. Tricyclic antidepressants
    Explanation
    Tricyclic antidepressants are the best treatment for neuropathic pain. This is because these medications work by altering the levels of certain chemicals in the brain, such as serotonin and norepinephrine, which can help to reduce pain signals. Tricyclic antidepressants have been found to be effective in managing neuropathic pain conditions such as diabetic neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia, and fibromyalgia. They can help to improve sleep, reduce pain intensity, and improve overall quality of life for individuals suffering from neuropathic pain. Opioids may be used for severe pain that is not responsive to other treatments, while nonopioids may be used for mild to moderate pain.

    This starts in the peripheral, causes cell damage with the releasing of sensitizing chemicals and leads to action potential.

    • A.

      Transduction

    • B.

      Transmission

    • C.

      Perception

    • D.

      Modulation

    Correct Answer
    A. Transduction
    Explanation
    Transduction is the process by which sensory receptors convert physical or chemical stimuli into electrical signals that can be transmitted to the brain. In this case, the statement suggests that the process starts in the peripheral (where sensory receptors are located), causes cell damage (which may trigger the release of sensitizing chemicals), and ultimately leads to the generation of action potentials (electrical signals) that can be transmitted to the brain. Therefore, transduction is the most appropriate term to describe this sequence of events.

    Action potential continues from site of injury to spinal cord, spinal cord to brainstem and thalamus, thalamus to cortex for processing.

    • A.

      Transduction

    • B.

      Transmission

    • C.

      Perception

    • D.

      Modulation

    Correct Answer
    B. Transmission
    Explanation
    This explanation describes the process of transmitting the action potential from the site of injury to various parts of the central nervous system. It states that the action potential travels from the site of injury to the spinal cord, then from the spinal cord to the brainstem and thalamus, and finally from the thalamus to the cortex for processing. This process of transmitting the action potential through different regions of the central nervous system is known as transmission.

    Conscious experience of pain is?

    • A.

      Transduction

    • B.

      Transmission

    • C.

      Perception

    • D.

      Modulation

    Correct Answer
    C. Perception
    Explanation
    Perception refers to the conscious experience of pain. It involves the interpretation and understanding of sensory information by the brain. When we perceive pain, our brain processes the signals received from the nervous system and creates a subjective experience of pain. This experience includes the emotional and cognitive aspects associated with pain, such as the intensity, location, and unpleasantness. Therefore, perception is the correct answer as it accurately describes the conscious awareness and interpretation of pain.

    Neurons originating in the brainstem descend to the spinal cord and release substances (e.g., endogenous opioids) that inhibit nociceptive impusles?

    • A.

      Transduction

    • B.

      Transmission

    • C.

      Perception

    • D.

      Modulation

    Correct Answer
    D. Modulation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Modulation. Modulation refers to the process of modifying or altering the transmission of signals. In this context, neurons originating in the brainstem release substances that inhibit nociceptive impulses, which can be seen as a modulation of pain signals. This modulation helps to regulate and control the perception of pain in the spinal cord.

    Bradykinin is a

    • A.

      Vasodiolator

    • B.

      Vasoconstictor

    • C.

      Inflammation response

    Correct Answer
    A. Vasodiolator
    Explanation
    Bradykinin is a vasodilator, meaning it causes the blood vessels to widen, resulting in increased blood flow. This can help to lower blood pressure and improve circulation. Vasodilators work by relaxing the smooth muscles in the walls of blood vessels, allowing them to expand. Bradykinin is also involved in the inflammatory response, but its primary role is as a vasodilator.

    • B.

      Vasoconstrictor

    • C.

      Inflammation Response

    • D.

      Makes receptors more sensitive

    Correct Answer
    C. Inflammation Response
    Explanation
    Histamine is a compound released by cells in response to injury or allergic reactions. It plays a key role in the inflammatory response, causing blood vessels to dilate and become more permeable, allowing immune cells to reach the affected area. This leads to redness, swelling, and heat, which are characteristic signs of inflammation. Therefore, histamine is responsible for the inflammation response.

    • C.

      Inflammation response.

    • D.

      Makes receptors more sensitive.

    Correct Answer
    D. Makes receptors more sensitive.
    Explanation
    Substance P is a neuropeptide that plays a role in the transmission of pain signals. It is known to enhance the sensitivity of pain receptors, making them more responsive to pain stimuli. This increased sensitivity can contribute to the perception of pain and the development of chronic pain conditions. Therefore, the statement "Makes receptors more sensitive" accurately describes the function of Substance P.

    • C.

      Substance P

    • D.

      Bradykinins

    Correct Answer
    B. Prostoglandins
    Explanation
    Nonopioids, NSAIDs, and corticosteroids all help block prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are hormone-like substances that play a key role in inflammation and pain. By inhibiting the production or activity of prostaglandins, these medications can reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and decrease fever. Prostaglandins are involved in various physiological processes, including the regulation of blood flow, the immune response, and the formation of blood clots. Blocking prostaglandins can have a wide range of therapeutic effects and is a common approach in the treatment of various conditions, such as arthritis, menstrual cramps, and headaches.

    Tylenol is good for working with:

    • A.

      Histamine

    • B.

      Bradykinins

    • C.

      Prostoglandins

    • D.

      Serotonin

    Correct Answer
    D. Serotonin
    Explanation
    Tylenol is not typically used to work with serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, appetite, and sleep, among other functions. Tylenol, also known as acetaminophen, is commonly used as a pain reliever and fever reducer. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, which are chemicals involved in pain and inflammation. While serotonin may play a role in pain perception, Tylenol does not directly target serotonin levels or function. Therefore, it is unlikely that Tylenol is specifically good for working with serotonin.

    Correct Answer
    A. Sympathetic Response
    Explanation
    Barry's increased heart rate (HR), increased blood pressure (BP), increased respiratory rate (RR), and increased glucose (Glu) levels are all indicative of a sympathetic response. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the "fight or flight" response, which is activated in stressful situations such as a car accident. This response increases heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory rate to prepare the body for action. Additionally, the release of glucose provides immediate energy for the body to deal with the stressful situation.

    Tina has decreased BP, irregular RR, and decreased HR.  The nurse is worried about vomiting and that Tina may faint.  The nurse knows that this system is at work in Tina:

    • A.

      Sympathetic Response

    • B.

      Parasympathetic Response

    • C.

      Pain Reduction Response

    • D.

      Transduction Decreasing Response.

    Correct Answer
    B. Parasympathetic Response
    Explanation
    The parasympathetic response is responsible for conserving energy and promoting rest and digestion. It opposes the sympathetic response, which is associated with the "fight or flight" response. In this scenario, Tina's decreased blood pressure, irregular respiratory rate, and decreased heart rate are indicative of a parasympathetic response. The nurse's concern about vomiting and fainting aligns with the parasympathetic response's role in promoting rest and digestion, as well as regulating bodily functions.

    • B.

      Reassure Luke that his pain is important and it is a priority.

    • C.

      Involve Luke in his own pain management goal.

    • D.

      Give Luke a placebo to see if his pain is mental or not.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Reassure Luke that his pain is important and it is a priority.
    C. Involve Luke in his own pain management goal.
