  2. apnea
  3. hemoglobin
  4. pulse deficit
  5. apical pulse
  1. a heartbeat as listened to with the bell or diaphragm of a stethoscope placed on the apex of the heart
  2. b a slow heart rate, less than 60 beats per minute in adults
  3. c 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.
  4. d 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. e cessation of airflow through the nose and mouth

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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
  2. occurs primarily in neonates. Because neonates cannot shiver, a limited amount of vascular brown adipose tissue present at birth can be metabolized for heat production
  3. pertaining to or resulting from ventricular contraction
  4. an abnormally elevated heart rate, more than 100 beats per minute in adults
  5. pertaining to or characterized by an elevated body temperature

5 True/False questions

  1. pulse pressuredifference between the systolic and diastolic pressures, normally 30 to 40 mm Hg

          

  2. eupneanormal respirations that are quiet, effortless, and rhythmical

          

  3. sphygmomanometerdevice for measuring the arterial blood pressure that consists of an arm or leg cuff with an air bladder connected to a tube and a bulb for pumping air into the bladder and a gauge for indicating the amount of air pressure being exerted against the artery; blood pressure cuff

          

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