5 Matching questions

  1. diastolic pressure
  2. vital signs
  3. systolic pressure
  4. Korotkoff sound
  5. infrared thermometer
  1. a pertaining to diastole, or the blood pressure at the instant of maximum cardiac relaxation
  2. b thermometer which relies on thermal radiation from the ear canal, tympanic membrane, axilla, and temporal artery to measure body temperature
  3. c sound heard during the taking of blood pressure using a sphygmomanometer and stethoscope
  4. d pertaining to or resulting from ventricular contraction
  5. e temperature, pulse, respiration, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and pain

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. abnormal lowering of blood pressure that is inadequate for normal perfusion and oxygenation of tissues
  2. normal respirations that are quiet, effortless, and rhythmical
  3. continued exposure to extreme heat raising the core body temperature to 40.5 C (105 F) or higher
  4. condition that exists when the radial pulse is less than the ventricular rate as auscultated at the apex or seen on an electrocardiogram. The condition indicates a lack of peripheral perfusion for some of the heart contractions.
  5. complete blood count measures red blood cell count, volume of red blood cells, and concentration of hemoglobin, which reflects patient's blood capacity to carry O2

5 True/False questions

  1. apneanormal respirations that are quiet, effortless, and rhythmical


  2. febrilepertaining to or characterized by an elevated body temperature


  3. perfusion(1) passage of a fluid through a specific organ or an area of the body; (2) therapeutic measure whereby a drug intended for an isolated part of the body is introduced via the bloodstream


  4. ventilationthe mechanical movement of gases into and out of the lungs


  5. core temperaturedifference between the systolic and diastolic pressures, normally 30 to 40 mm Hg
