Please answer the following questions taken from "Set 4" of your vocabulary (listed under the "Vocabulary" tab on the Pre-Learning Portal)


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Name the procedure for "Inserting a needle into a patient's back in order to obtain CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) for testing (usually to rule out meningitis)."

    • A.

      Joint Reduction

    • B.

      Intubation

    • C.

      Laceration Repair

    • D.

      Lumbar Puncture

    Correct Answer
    D. Lumbar Puncture
    Explanation
    Lumbar puncture is the procedure of inserting a needle into a patient's back to obtain cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for testing. This procedure is commonly done to rule out meningitis, as CSF analysis can provide important diagnostic information. Joint reduction, intubation, and laceration repair are unrelated to obtaining CSF and are not appropriate procedures for this purpose.

    What does "MDM" stand for?

    Correct Answer
    Medical Decision Making
    Explanation
    MDM stands for Medical Decision Making. It refers to the process by which healthcare professionals analyze and evaluate clinical information to determine the best treatment or management plan for a patient. This involves considering factors such as the patient's medical history, symptoms, test results, and available treatment options. Medical Decision Making plays a crucial role in providing effective and personalized healthcare to patients.

      Lumbar Puncture

    • C.

      Incision and Drainage

    • D.

      Joint Reduction

    Correct Answer
    C. Incision and Drainage
    Explanation
    The procedure described in the question involves inserting a scalpel or needle into the skin to drain pus from a boil or abscess. This is known as "Incision and Drainage."

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Thoracentesis is the removal of fluid from a joint for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. (True or False)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Thoracentesis is actually the removal of fluid from the pleural space (the space between the lungs and the chest wall) for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, not from a joint. Therefore, the given statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Provide the term that describes the following procedure: "A medical procedure by which an abnormally fast heart rate (tachycardia) or rhythm is converted to a normal rhythm/rate, using electricity or medication." (remember: spelling counts)

    Correct Answer
    Cardioversion
    Explanation
    Cardioversion is a medical procedure used to treat abnormal heart rates or rhythms, specifically tachycardia. It involves the use of electricity or medication to convert the heart back to a normal rhythm and rate.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Vancomycin is a pain medication (true or false)?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Vancomycin is not a pain medication. It is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections, particularly those caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and other resistant bacteria. It is not used for pain relief.

  • 7. 

    What does "RBBB" stand for?

    Correct Answer
    Right bundle branch block
    Explanation
    "RBBB" stands for Right Bundle Branch Block. This is a cardiac condition where there is a delay or blockage in the electrical signals that control the right side of the heart. This can result in an abnormal heartbeat and can be detected through an electrocardiogram (ECG).

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Check all of the terms below that are related to an EKG/ECG.

    • A.

      ST segments

    • B.

      Pulse Oximetry

    • C.

      T-waves

    • D.

      PVCs

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. ST segments
    C. T-waves
    D. PVCs
    Explanation
    The ST segments, T-waves, and PVCs are all related to an EKG/ECG. The ST segment is a portion of the EKG that represents the interval between ventricular depolarization and repolarization. T-waves represent ventricular repolarization. PVCs, or premature ventricular contractions, are abnormal heartbeats that can be detected on an EKG. Pulse Oximetry, on the other hand, is a method used to measure oxygen saturation in the blood and is not directly related to an EKG/ECG.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Check all of the terms below that are related to an EKG/ECG.

    • A.

      Leads

    • B.

      Conduction/Intervals

    • C.

      Rate

    • D.

      Rhythm

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Leads
    B. Conduction/Intervals
    C. Rate
    D. Rhythm
    Explanation
    An EKG/ECG is a diagnostic tool used to measure the electrical activity of the heart. Leads are the electrodes placed on the body to capture the electrical signals. Conduction/Intervals refer to the time it takes for the electrical signals to travel through the heart. Rate indicates the number of heartbeats per minute. Rhythm refers to the regularity or irregularity of the heart's electrical activity. All of these terms are directly related to an EKG/ECG and are essential in analyzing and interpreting the results.

  • 10. 

    Choose the term for the following procedure: The placement of a flexible plastic tube into the trachea (windpipe) to help the patient breathe. 

    • A.

      Intubation

    • B.

      Resuscitation

    • C.

      Joint Reduction

    • D.

      Cardioversion

    Correct Answer
    A. Intubation
    Explanation
    Intubation refers to the procedure of inserting a flexible plastic tube into the trachea to assist a patient in breathing. This technique is commonly used in emergency situations or during surgeries to maintain an open airway and provide mechanical ventilation. It allows for the delivery of oxygen and the removal of carbon dioxide from the lungs. Intubation is a vital procedure in critical care settings and is performed by medical professionals such as anesthesiologists or emergency physicians.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Select all of the antibiotics from the list below.

    • A.

      Zosyn

    • B.

      Phenergan

    • C.

      Zofran

    • D.

      Bactrim

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Zosyn
    D. Bactrim
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Zosyn and Bactrim because they are both antibiotics. Zosyn is a combination of piperacillin and tazobactam, which is used to treat various bacterial infections. Bactrim is a combination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim, which is also used to treat bacterial infections. Phenergan and Zofran, on the other hand, are not antibiotics. Phenergan is an antihistamine and Zofran is an antiemetic, both used for different purposes unrelated to bacterial infections.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Select all of the anti-emetics/anti-nausea medications from the list below.

    • A.

      Phenergan

    • B.

      Zofran

    • C.

      Flagyl

    • D.

      Keflex

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Phenergan
    B. Zofran
    Explanation
    Phenergan and Zofran are both anti-emetics/anti-nausea medications. Flagyl and Keflex are not used to treat nausea or vomiting.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Select all of the pain medications from the list below.

    • A.

      Insulin

    • B.

      Morphine

    • C.

      Benadryl

    • D.

      Nebulizer

    Correct Answer
    B. Morphine
    Explanation
    Morphine is a pain medication commonly used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It belongs to the class of drugs known as opioids, which work by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord to reduce the perception of pain. Insulin is not a pain medication, but a hormone used to regulate blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Benadryl is an antihistamine used to treat allergies and allergic reactions. Nebulizer is a device used to deliver medication in the form of a mist to the lungs, but it is not a pain medication.
