Fundamentals Of Nursing : Infection, Asepsis, Basic concept of stress and Illness Correct Answers and Rationales

FUNDAMENTALS OF NURSING TEST II CONTENT OUTLINE 1. Illness 2. Infection and Asepsis 3. Basic concept of Stress and Adaptation 1. When the General adaptation syndrome is activated, FLIGHT OR FIGHT response sets in. Sympathetic nervous system releases norepinephrine while the adrenal medulla secretes epinephrine. Which of the following is true with regards to that statement? A. Pupils will constrict B. Client will be lethargic C. Lungs will bronchodilate D. Gastric motility will increase * To better understand the concept : The autonomic nervous system is composed of SYMPATHETIC and PARASYMPATHETIC Nervous system. It is called AUTONOMIC Because it is Involuntary and stimuli based. You cannot tell your heart to kindly beat for 60 per minute, Nor, Tell your blood vessels, Please constrict, because you need to wear skirt today and your varicosities are bulging. Sympathetic Nervous system is the FIGHT or FLIGHT mechanism. When people FIGHT or RUN, we tend to stimulate the ANS and dominate over SNS. Just Imagine a person FIGHTING and RUNNING to get the idea on the signs of SNS Domination. Imagine a resting and digesting person to get a picture of PNS Domination. A person RUNNING or FIGHTING Needs to bronchodilate, because the oxygen need is increased due to higher demand of the body. Pupils will DILATE to be able to see the enemy clearly. Client will be fully alert to dodge attacks and leap through obstacles during running. The client's gastric motility will DECREASE Because you cannot afford to urinate or defecate during fighting nor running. 2. Which of the following response is not expected to a person whose GAS is activated and the FIGHT OR FLIGHT response sets in? A. The client will not urinate due to relaxation of the detrusor muscle B. The client will be restless and alert C. Clients BP will increase, there will be vasodilation D. There will be increase glycogenolysis, Pancrease will decrease insulin secretion * If vasodilation will occur, The BP will not increase but decrease. It is true that Blood pressure increases during SNS Stimulation due to the fact that we need more BLOOD to circulate during the FIGHT or FLIGHT Response because the oxygen demand has increased, but this is facilitated by vasoconstriction and not vasodilation. A,B and D are all correct. The liver will increase glycogenolysis or glycogen store utilization due to a heightened demand for energy. Pancrease will decrease insulin secretion because almost every aspect of digestion that is controlled by Parasympathetic nervous system is inhibited when the SNS

dominates. 3. State in which a person’s physical, emotional, intellectual and social development or spiritual functioning is diminished or impaired compared with a previous experience. A. Illness B. Disease C. Health D. Wellness * Disease is a PROVEN FACT based on a medical theory, standards, diagnosis and clinical feature while ILLNESS Is a subjective state of not feeling well based on subjective appraisal, previous experience, peer advice etc. 4. This is the first stage of illness wherein, the person starts to believe that something is wrong. Also known as the transition phase from wellness to illness. A. Symptom Experience B. Assumption of sick role C. Medical care contact D. Dependent patient role * A favorite board question are Stages of Illness. When a person starts to believe something is wrong, that person is experiencing signs and symptoms of an illness. The patient will then ASSUME that he is sick. This is called assumption of the sick role where the patient accepts he is Ill and try to give up some activities. Since the client only ASSUMES his illness, he will try to ask someone to validate if what he is experiencing is a disease, This is now called as MEDICAL CARE CONTACT. The client seeks professional advice for validation, reassurance, clarification and explanation of the symptoms he is experiencing. client will then start his dependent patient role of receiving care from the health care providers. The last stage of Illness is the RECOVERY stage where the patient gives up the sick role and assumes the previous normal gunctions. 5. In this stage of illness, the person accepts or rejects a professionals suggestion. The person also becomes passive and may regress to an earlier stage. A. Symptom Experience B. Assumption of sick role C. Medical care contact D. Dependent patient role * In the dependent patient role stage, Client needs professionals for help. They have a choice either to accept or reject the professional's decisions but patients are usually passive and accepting. Regression tends to occur more in this period. 6. In this stage of illness, The person learns to accept the illness. A. Symptom Experience B. Assumption of sick role C. Medical care contact D. Dependent patient role * Acceptance of illness occurs in the Assumption of sick role phase of illness.

Symptom Experience B. He wants his illness to be validated. Modifiable Risks 10. Signs D. He wants someone to explain why is he feeling these signs and symptoms and wants to know the probable outcome of this experience. Dependent patient role * At this stage. Predisposing factor B. Etiology * Immunity is the ABSOLUTE Resistance to a pathogen considering that person has an INTACT IMMUNITY while susceptibility is the DEGREE of resistance. Etiology .7. Degree of resistance means how well would the individual combat the pathogens and repel infection or invasion of these disease causing organisms. 8. An Immune person is someone that can easily repel specific pathogens. Symptoms C. However. One is obliged to seek competent help * The nurse should not judge the patient and not view the patient as the cause or someone responsible for his illness. Remember that even if a person is IMMUNE [ Vaccination ] Immunity can always be impaired in cases of chemotherapy. A sick client is excused from his societal roles. Assumption of sick role C. 9. One is excused from his societal role C. One is obliged to get well as soon as possible D. the person tries to find answers for his illness. Refers to conditions that increases vulnerability of individual or group to illness or accident A. He wants to find out if what he feels are normal or not normal. Susceptibility B. HIV. In this stage. Risk factor D. Burns. his symptoms explained and the outcome reassured or predicted A. One should be held responsible for his condition B. The following are true with regards to aspect of the sick role except A. 11. The patient seeks for validation of his symptom experience. Etiology C. Refers to the degree of resistance the potential host has against a certain pathogen A. A susceptible person is someone who has a very low degree of resistance to combat pathogens. A group of symptoms that sums up or constitute a disease A. Medical care contact D. etc. Virulence D. Immunity C. Oblige to get well as soon as possible and Obliged to seek competent help. Syndrome B.

In Tourette syndrome. A woman undergoing radiation therapy developed redness and burning of the skin around the best. Neoplastic B. This is best classified as what type of disease? A. Traumatic C. Syndrome means COLLECTION of these symptoms that occurs together to characterize a certain disease. 3. For example. Term to describe the reactiviation and recurrence of pronounced symptoms of a disease A. 14.Coli. The classification of CANCER according to its etiology Is best described as 1. Tics with coprolalia. A child frequently exposed to the X-RAY Machine develops redness and partial thickness burns over the chest area. Iatrogenic * Iatrogenic diseases refers to those that resulted from treatment of a certain disease. Cancer is considered as IDIOPATHIC because the cause is UNKNOWN. 12. 13. An acute and sub acute diseases . 6. Acute C. Nosocomial are infections that acquired INSIDE the hospital. 5. Traumatic are brought about by injuries like Motor vehicular accidents. 2 and 3 C. 5 and 2 B. choreas or other movement disorders are characteristics of TOURETTE SYNDROME. Sub acute D. 4. Remission B. Example is UTI Because of catheterization. Emission C.* Symptoms are individual manifestation of a certain disease. patient will manifest TICS. palilalia. echolalia. A type of illness characterized by periods of remission and exacerbation A. Nosocomial Idiopathic Neoplastic Traumatic Congenital Degenrative A. This is commonly caused by E. but this alone is not enough to diagnose the patient as other diseases has the same tic manifestation. Chronic B. 3 and 5 * Aside from being NEOPLASTIC. Exacerbation D. 3 and 4 D. Neoplastic are malignant diseases cause by proliferation of abnormally growing cells. For example. Sub acute 15. Nosocomial D. 2. Sub chronic * A good example is Multiple sclerosis that characterized by periods of remissions and exacerbation and it is a CHRONIC Disease.

Functional B. It is the science of organism as affected by factors in their environment. This is the study of the patterns of health and disease. Functional B. ORGANIC BRAIN SYNDROME are anatomic and physiologic change in the BRAIN that is NON PROGRESSIVE BUT IRREVERSIBLE caused by alteration in structure of the brain and it's supporting structure which manifests different sign and symptoms of neurological. 17. Ecology C. physiologic and psychologic alterations. It deals with diseases in relationship with the environment. A. 19. Mental disorders manifesting symptoms of psychoses without any evident organic or structural damage are termed as INORGANIC PSYCHOSES while alteration in the organ structures that causes symptoms of bizaare pyschotic behavior is termed as ORGANIC PSYCHOSES. which is usually due to abnormal response of the organ to stressors. Inorganic D. Ecology C. Organic * As the word implies. 16. Occupational C.occurs too short to manifest remissions. Its occurrence and distribution in man. Statistics D. Diseases that results from changes in the normal structure. 18. This was asked during the previous boards. for the purpose of control and prevention of disease. A. Organic . Inorganic diseases is synonymous with FUNCTIONAL diseases wherein. Geography * Ecology is the science that deals with the ECOSYSTEM and its effects on living things in the biosphere. Epidemiology B. Inorganic D. A. There is no evident structural. Epidemiology B. Epidimiology is simply the Study of diseases and its occurence and distribution in man for the purpose of controlling and preventing diseases. It deals with the relationship between disease and geographical environment. Statistics D. anatomical or physical change in the structure of the organ or system but function is altered due to other causes. from recognizable anatomical changes in an organ or body tissue is termed as A. Chronic diseases persists longer than 6 months that is why remissions and exacerbation are observable. Geography * Refer to number 17. Therefore. ORGANIC Diseases are those that causes a CHANGE in the structure of the organs and systems. Occupational C. Refers to diseases that produced no anatomic changes but as a result from abnormal response to a stimuli.

Examples are prosthetis fitting for an amputated leg after an accident. good nutrition. Secondary prevention are those that deals with early diagnostics. To best differentiate the two. Iron therapy to treat anemia etc. Tertiary D. Primary B. Here. 21. None of the above * Perhaps one of the easiest concept but asked frequently in the NLE. Self monitoring of glucose among diabetics. Primary refers to preventions that aims in preventing the disease. Antibiotic treatment to cure infection. . Diagnostics etc. will move the client on PRE ILLNESS STATE again. ASPIRING no longer cure the patient or PUT HIM IN THE PRE ILLNESS STATE. knowledge seeking behaviors etc. Even if the person feels healthy. ASA therapy is done in order to prevent coagulation of the blood that can lead to thrombus formation and a another possible stroke. Examples are monthly breast self exam. Chest X-RAY. Examples are healthy lifestyle. LESSEN the person's susceptibility to illness. 20. Its side effect is OTOTOXICITY [ CN VIII ] that leads to TINNITUS or ringing of the ears. In cases of ASPIRING Therapy in cases of stroke. In what level of prevention does the nurse encourage optimal health and increases person’s susceptibility to illness? A. The person feels signs and symptoms and seeks Diagnosis and treatment in order to prevent deblitating complications. None of the above * The nurse never increases the person's susceptibility to illness but rather. None of the above * Secondary prevention is also known as HEALTH MAINTENANCE Prevention. case finding and treatments. Secondary C. 22. Tertiary prevention aims on maintaining optimum level of functioning during or after the impact of a disease that threatens to alter the normal body functioning. Tertiary D. Secondary C. Secondary C. You might wonder why I spelled ASPIRIN as ASPIRING. Physical examinations. TPA Therapy after stroke etc. The confusing part is between the treatment in secondary and treatment in tertiary. However. In what level of prevention according to Leavell and Clark does the nurse support the client in obtaining OPTIMAL HEALTH STATUS after a disease or injury? A. Primary B. A. Tertiary D. A client with ANEMIA that is being treated with ferrous sulfate is considered being in the SECONDARY PREVENTION because ANEMIA once treated.

Illness period D. known or believed to have been exposed to a disease. That is when autoclaving or steam under pressure gets in. The disease has been introduced to the body but no sign and symptom appear because the pathogen is not yet strong enough to cause it . Host B. A. Autoclaving can kill almost ALL type of microoganism including their spores. Convalescent period * In incubation period. Carrier 35. Incubation period B. Disinfection D. Environment D. 34. Prodromal period C. Sterilization B. Both can kill and inhibit growth of microorganism but cannot kill their spores. The third period of infectious processes characterized by development of specific signs and symptoms A. Asepsis * Surgical Asepsis is also known as STERILE TECHNIQUE while Medical Asepsis is synonymous with CLEAN TECHNIQUE. Disinfection is the PROCESS of removing pathogens but not their spores. Contact C. 38. Sterilization B. This is a person or animal. Antiseptic D. also known as your CLEAN TECHNIQUE. Medical Asepsis is a PRACTICE designed to minimize or reduce the transfer of pathogens. This is a process of removing pathogens but not their spores A. Host 36. that destroys pathogens but not the spores.

Etiologic/Infectious agent B. runny nose. 42. we can now assume that the mailman is in the incubation period. Susceptible host Portal of entry Portal of exit Etiologic agent . A child with measles developed fever and general weakness after being exposed to another child with rubella. Illness period D. Koplik's spot heralds the Illness period and cough is the last symptom to disappear. 41. A minute after exposure. fatigue. Illness period is characterized by the appearance of specific signs and symptoms or refer tp as time with the greatest symptom experience. All of this processes take place in 10 days that is why. Incubation period B. 3. This is when the sign and symptoms starts to appear. This is when the appearance of non specific signs and symptoms sets in. 40. Portal of Entry C. In the situation above. Acme is the PEAK of illness intensity while the convalescent period is characterized by the abatement of the disease process or it's gradual disappearance. Convalescent period * Anthrax can have an incubation period of hours to 7 days with an average of 48 hours. 2. It is easily manipulated by the Nurses using the tiers of prevention. Illness period D. Incubation period B. Koplik's Spot and Rashes must appear. the specific signs of Fever. Mode of transmission * Mode of transmission is the weakest link in the chain of infection. A 50 year old mailman carried a mail with anthrax powder in it. therefore. Prodromal period C. Convalescent period * To be able to categorize MEASLES in the Illness period. Only general signs and symptoms appeared and the Specific signs and symptoms is yet to appear. Universal precaution or Isolation techniques. the illness is still in the Prodromal period. Considered as the WEAKEST LINK in the chain of infection that nurses can manipulate to prevent spread of infection and diseases A. Since the question stated exposure. Prodromal period C. he still hasn’t developed any signs and symptoms of anthrax.and may still need to multiply. Which of the following is the exact order of the infection chain? 1.

3. That is why HANDWASHING is the single most . is the main cause of cross contamination in hospital setting. Spread from patient to patient C. What is the mode of transmission of Lyme disease. 45. Direct contact transmission B.4. 5. You correctly answered him that Lyme disease is transmitted via A.1 C.6. A simple way to understand the process is by looking at the lives of a young queen ant that is starting to build her colony.5. Virulence C. 4. Mode of transmission A.2. Vehicle borne transmission C. A pathogen should have a TARGET ORGAN/S. Air borne transmission D. The pathogen should be specific to these organs to cause an infection. It will first proliferate on a RESERVOIR and will need a PORTAL OF EXIT to be able to TRANSMIT irslef using a PORTAL OF ENTRY to a SUSCEPTIBLE HOST. 1. Spread by cross contamination via hands of caregiver D. not infective to humans but deadly to birds.6 B. A 15 year old high school student asked you.5.1 D. Cause by unclean instruments used by doctors and nurses * The hands of the caregiver like nurses.1 * Chain of infection starts with the SOURCE : The etiologic agent itself. specially AIDS Patient. 43. Imagine the QUEEN ANT as a SOURCE or the ETIOLOGIC AGENT.2. Markee. Contact transmission of infectious organism in the hospital is usually cause by A. could be infected with these NON SPECIFIC diseases due to impaired immune system. She first need to build a COLONY. Urinary catheterization B. 44. Vector borne transmission * Lyme disease is caused by Borrelia Burdorferi and is transmitted by a TICK BITE. They need to EXIT [PORTAL OF EXIT] their colony and crawl [MODE OF TRANSMISSION] in search of foods by ENTERING / INVADING [PORTAL OF ENTRY] our HOUSE [SUSCEPTIBLE HOST]. we can easily arrange the chain of infection. Mycobacterium Avium is NON SPECIFIC to human organs and therefore. OR the RESERVOIR where she will start to lay the first eggs to be able to produce her worker ants and soldier ants to be able to defend and sustain the new colony. Pathogenicity B. Reservoir An immunocompromised individual.2. The ability of the infectious agent to cause a disease primarily depends on all of the following except A.

coughs or laugh that is usually projected at a distance of 3 feet. Airborne transmission C. 46. A woman with completed immunization of DPT need not receive TT1 and TT2. Artificial active immunity D. Vehicle transmission D. Fair skinned person also has a higher risk for cholecystitis and cholelithiasis. Natural active immunity B. Agatha asked you. A.Coli seems to be the major cause of this incident. Immunization * Remember that intact skin and mucus membrane is our first line of defense against infection. Considered as the first line of defense of the body against infection A. 49. It is the spread of microogranisms from patient o patient. 50. Droplet transmission B.important procedure to prevent the occurence of cross contamination and nosocomial infection. Color of the skin could affect person's susceptibility to certain skin diseases. Natural passive immunity C. what type of immunity is TT Injections? You correctly answer her by saying Tetanus toxoid immunization is a/an A. WBC C. Leukocytes D. Vector borne transmission 47. B best fits Cross Contamination. Graciel asked you. Artificial passive immunity * TT1 ti TT2 are considered the primary dose. while TT3 to TT5 are the booster dose. Medication like corticosteroids could supress a person's immune system that will lead to increase susceptibility. 48. She suffered multiple injuries and was injected Tetanus toxoid Immunoglobulin. Graciel has been injected TT5. Skin B. Faith or religious belief do not affect person's susceptibility to illness. her last dosed for tetanus toxoid immunization. All of the following contributes to host susceptibility except A. D refers to Nosocomial infection and UTI is the most common noscomial infection in the hospital caused by urinary catheterization. Agatha. Creed B. It is Artificial because it did not occur in the course of actual illness or infection. Immunization C. Color of the skin * Creed. A dark skinned person has lower risk of skin cancer than a fair skinned person. Transmission occurs when an infected person sneezes. E. it is Active because what has been passed is an actual toxin and not a ready made immunoglobulin. What immunity does TTIg provides? You best . Tetanus toxoid is the actual toxin produce by clostridium tetani but on its WEAK and INACTIVATED form. Current medication being taken D. was hacked and slashed by a psychotic man while she was crossing the railway.

because the body of agatha did not produce it. The rest. Water helps remove transient bacteria by working with soap to create the lather that reduces surface tension. It is passive because her immune system is not stimulated but rather. This is considered as the most important aspect of handwashing A. Medical asepsis do not require hands to be above the waist D. Time B. will just enhance friction. 51. a ready made Immune globulin is given to immediately supress the invasion.answered her by saying TTIg provides A. Artificial active immunity D. Disinfecting C. Time is of essence but friction is the most essential aspect of handwashing. The hands must always be above the waist B. Friction C. 90% Chance it is the correct answer in the local board. The hands are cleaner than the elbow C. This is artificial. Sterilizing D. wherein. The rationale is because in medical asepsis. Agatha was already wounded and has injuries. Natural active immunity B. to limit contamination of the lower arm. Cleaning B. Natural passive immunity C. Soap * The most important aspect of handwashing is FRICTION. Below the elbow. 5 to 10 seconds each hand . What agatha needs now is a ready made anti toxin in the form of ATS or TTIg. Water D. 54. 53. In handwashing by medical asepsis. Hands are dirtier than the lower arms * Hands are held BELOW the elbow in medical asepsis in contrast with surgical asepsis. Or should I say. The hands should always be below the elbow. Below the elbow. 52. 100% because I have yet to see question from 1988 to 2005 board questions that has option HANDWASHING on it but is not the correct answer. Handwashing * When you see the word HANDWASHING as one of the options. The use of soap lowers the surface tension thereby increasing the effectiveness of friction. Above the elbow. Artificial passive immunity * In this scenario. Giving the toxin [TT Vaccine] itself would not help Agatha because it will take time before the immune system produce antitoxin. This is the single most important procedure that prevents cross contamination and infection A. Hands are held …. The suggested time per hand on handwashing using the time method is A. Hands are considered dirtier than the elbow and therefore. Above the elbow. A. nurses are required to keep the hands above the waist.
