    Which of the following does ABC stand for in the context of treating an animal?

    • A.

      Anterior, Back, Cleanse

    • B.

      Airway, Breathing, Circulation

    • C.

      Aftercare, Beforecare, Care

    Correct Answer
    B. Airway, Breathing, Circulation
    Explanation
    In the context of treating an animal, ABC stands for Airway, Breathing, Circulation. This acronym is commonly used in emergency situations to prioritize the steps of assessing and providing immediate care to an animal. Airway refers to ensuring that the animal's airway is clear and unobstructed. Breathing involves checking for the animal's breathing and providing artificial respiration if necessary. Circulation refers to checking for a pulse and providing chest compressions if the animal's heart has stopped. This acronym helps to ensure that these vital functions are addressed promptly in order to increase the chances of the animal's survival.

    When performing mouth-to-nose resuscitation, one breath every three seconds is suitable for a very small dog.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When performing mouth-to-nose resuscitation on a very small dog, one breath every three seconds may not be suitable. Small dogs have a faster respiratory rate compared to larger dogs, so they may require more frequent breaths to maintain adequate oxygenation. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What information should the veterinary nurse pass to the surgeon? (Select 3)

    • A.

      The animal's age

    • B.

      The owner's age

    • C.

      Whether the animal is insured

    • D.

      The names of any siblings the animal may have

    • E.

      The animals's name

    • F.

      The number of people still waiting to be dealt with

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The animal's age
    C. Whether the animal is insured
    E. The animals's name
    Explanation
    The veterinary nurse should pass on the animal's age to the surgeon as it can be crucial in determining appropriate treatment and anesthesia dosage. Whether the animal is insured is important for the surgeon to know as it may affect the type of treatment options available. The animal's name is also important for identification and proper record keeping.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    In dogs and cats, the capillary refill time should be 2.5 seconds.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the capillary refill time in dogs and cats should typically be less than 2.5 seconds. Capillary refill time is the time it takes for the color to return to the gums after they have been pressed. In healthy animals, this should happen within 1-2 seconds. If it takes longer than 2.5 seconds, it may indicate poor circulation or other underlying health issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    CRT stands for Capillary Return Time.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because CRT stands for Capillary Refill Time, not Capillary Return Time. Capillary Refill Time is the time it takes for the color to return to the capillaries after pressure is applied and then released from a specific area of the body, usually the fingertip. It is used as a measure of peripheral circulation and can indicate dehydration or other circulatory issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true. CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which is a life-saving technique used in emergencies when someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped. It involves a combination of chest compressions and rescue breaths to help circulate oxygenated blood to the vital organs until professional medical help arrives.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Shock is a condition resulting from a depressed state of many vital body functions, caused by the lack of effective circulation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Shock is indeed a condition that occurs when vital body functions are depressed due to a lack of effective circulation. It is a serious medical emergency that can be caused by various factors such as severe bleeding, heart attack, or severe infection. In shock, the body's organs and tissues do not receive enough oxygen and nutrients, leading to organ failure and potentially death if not treated promptly. Therefore, the statement "Shock is a condition resulting from a depressed state of many vital body functions, caused by the lack of effective circulation" is true.
