5 Matching questions

  1. tachypnea
  2. vasoconstriction
  3. eupnea
  4. auscultatory gap
  5. pulse pressure
  1. a narrowing of surface blood vessels; reduces heat loss
  2. b normal respirations that are quiet, effortless, and rhythmical
  3. c abnormally rapid rate of breathing
  4. d disappearance of sound when obtaining a blood pressure; typically occurs between the first and second Korotkoff sounds
  5. e difference between the systolic and diastolic pressures, normally 30 to 40 mm Hg

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. without fever
  2. 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.
  3. continued exposure to extreme heat raising the core body temperature to 40.5 C (105 F) or higher
  4. thermometer which relies on thermal radiation from the ear canal, tympanic membrane, axilla, and temporal artery to measure body temperature
  5. secretion of sweat, especially profuse secretion associated with an elevated body temperature, physical exertion, or emotional stress

5 True/False questions

  1. bradycardiaan abnormally elevated heart rate, more than 100 beats per minute in adults


  2. antipyreticabnormal elevation of the temperature of the body above 37 C (98.6 F) because of disease; same as fever


  3. systolic pressurepertaining to or resulting from ventricular contraction


  4. oxygen saturationthe amount of hemoglobin fully saturated with oxygen, given as a percent value


  5. dysrhythmiasituation in which body temperature exceeds the set point
