    • A.

      Unusual.

    • D.

      Comforting.

    Correct Answer
    C. Isolating.
    Explanation

It can also lead to a sense of isolation as it can limit one's ability to engage in activities or socialize with others.

    In an evolutionary perspective, pain ___.

    • A.

    • E.

      A and b

    Correct Answer
    E. A and b
    Explanation
    In an evolutionary perspective, pain serves as a mechanism that both warns and protects us. It acts as a signal to alert us to potential harm or danger, prompting us to take necessary actions to avoid further injury or damage. This adaptive response has allowed our ancestors to survive and pass on their genes to future generations. Therefore, the correct answer is "a and b" as pain serves the dual purpose of warning and protecting us.

      Live.

    Correct Answer
    B. Move.
    Explanation
    Little daily pains remind us to move. This answer suggests that when we experience small daily discomforts or aches, it serves as a reminder to keep our bodies active and in motion. Movement is important for maintaining overall health and preventing stiffness or further pain. Regular exercise and physical activity can help alleviate minor pains and promote a healthier lifestyle.

    B. Subjective.
    Explanation
    Pain is subjective because it is experienced differently by each individual. It is influenced by factors such as personal perception, tolerance, and previous experiences. What may be extremely painful for one person may be tolerable for another. Therefore, pain can vary greatly from person to person, making it a subjective experience.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Sensory, physical, actual

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sensory, emotional, actual
    Explanation
    Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience, associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage. This means that pain is not only a physical sensation but also has an emotional component. It can be experienced as a result of actual tissue damage or the anticipation of potential damage.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Historically it was assumed that ___ was associated with the extent of the pain.

    • A.

      Fever

    • B.

      Length of discomfort

    • C.

      Tissue damage

    • D.

      Sweating

    Correct Answer
    C. Tissue damage
    Explanation
    Historically, it was believed that the extent of pain was associated with tissue damage. This assumption stemmed from the idea that when tissues are damaged, pain signals are sent to the brain, resulting in the perception of pain. Therefore, the more extensive the tissue damage, the more intense the pain was thought to be. This belief has been challenged in recent years, as research has shown that pain is a complex phenomenon influenced by various factors, including psychological and social factors. Nonetheless, historically, tissue damage was considered a significant factor in the experience of pain.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    __% of soldiers compared to __ % of civilians required anaelgesics for the same pain, with 60% reporting pain or no pain.

    • A.

      50, 75

    • B.

      25, 50

    • C.

      25, 75

    • D.

      25, 90

    Correct Answer
    D. 25, 90
    Explanation
    The given answer states that 25% of soldiers compared to 90% of civilians required analgesics for the same pain, with 60% reporting pain or no pain. This suggests that a higher percentage of civilians needed pain relief compared to soldiers. The significant difference in the percentage of civilians requiring analgesics (90%) indicates that civilians were more likely to experience pain and seek medication for it, while a smaller percentage of soldiers (25%) needed analgesics.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which of the following nerve fibres do not send messages to the brain and thereby act to keep the gate closed?

    • A.

      A-delta

    • B.

      C-fibres

    • C.

      A-beta

    • D.

      B-fibres

    Correct Answer
    C. A-beta
    Explanation
    A-beta nerve fibers do not send messages to the brain and instead act to keep the gate closed. These fibers are responsible for transmitting non-painful sensations, such as touch and pressure, from the body to the central nervous system. Their role is to inhibit the transmission of pain signals, helping to close the "gate" and reduce the perception of pain.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    The central assumption of the Gate Theory is that  different parts of the CNS are involved in the pain experience. This is:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The central assumption of the Gate Theory is that different parts of the CNS (Central Nervous System) are involved in the pain experience. This means that the perception of pain is not solely determined by the specific area where the pain is felt, but rather involves various regions of the central nervous system. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

    Wk 7 Lect 2 Grief and Grief Counselling Bereavement is ___, it is the loss of something. It doesn't actually refer to the ___ experience.

    • A.

      Subjective, emotional

    • B.

      Objective, situational

    • C.

      Subjective, situational

    • D.

      Objective, emotional

    Correct Answer
    D. Objective, emotional
    Explanation
    Bereavement is an objective experience because it refers to the loss of something, which is a tangible and measurable event. However, it is also an emotional experience because it involves the feelings of grief and sadness that come with the loss.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    The word that really captures the emotional experience is __.

    • A.

      Sadness

    • B.

      Loss

    • C.

      Grief

    • D.

      Mourning

    Correct Answer
    C. Grief
    Explanation
    The word "grief" is the most suitable answer because it specifically refers to the emotional experience of deep sorrow or sadness that is often associated with the loss of someone or something significant. While the other options - sadness, loss, and mourning - may also be related to the emotional experience, "grief" encompasses a broader range of emotions and is commonly used to describe the intense and prolonged feelings of sadness and mourning that follow a significant loss.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    __ reflects the acts of expressions of grief.

    • A.

      Bereavement

    • B.

      Loss

    • C.

      Mourning

    • D.

      Guilt

    Correct Answer
    C. Mourning
    Explanation
    Mourning is the act of expressing grief, typically after the loss of a loved one. It involves various rituals, customs, and behaviors that are culturally specific and may include wearing black clothing, attending funerals, or participating in religious ceremonies. Bereavement refers to the state of experiencing grief after a loss, while loss refers to the actual event of losing someone or something. Guilt, on the other hand, is a feeling of responsibility or remorse for something that one has done wrong. Therefore, mourning is the most appropriate choice as it directly relates to the acts of expressing grief.

This initial phase is commonly observed in the early stages of grief and can vary in duration for each individual.
