  1. a the left eye, Oculus Sinister
  2. b inflammation of the eyelids characterized by redness and swelling and dried crusts
  3. c increased pressure in the eyeball due to obstruction of the outflow of aqueous humor; refers to a category of eye disorders often associated with a dangerous buildup of internal eye pressure (intraocular pressure or IOP), which can damage the eye's optic nerve. With untreated or uncontrolled glaucoma, you might eventually notice decreased peripheral vision. Progressive eye damage leads to blindness. It creates at least some vision loss in more than half of the approximately 2.5 million Americans estimated to have it and is 2nd leading cause of blindness. Often is called "silent thief of sight," because most types typically cause no pain and produce no symptoms until noticeable vision loss. Glaucoma often progresses undetected until the optic nerve already has been irreversibly damaged, with varying degrees of permanent vision loss. With acute angle-closure glaucoma, symptoms occur suddenly; can include blurry vision, halos around lights, intense eye pain, nausea and vomiting. Make sure you see an eye care Dr. or visit the ER immediately to prevent permanent vision loss.
  4. d high density lipoprotien, good cholestrol, carrier protien that carries cholestrol from body to liver for processing and elimination; takes cholesterol OUT
  5. e a condition marked by the deficiency of RBCs

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Red cell indices detect abnormalities in erythrocyte size, shape, color. 3 common are as follows: MCV (mean corpuscular volume index); MCH (mean corpuscular hemoglobin); MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration)
  2. removing the needle from the vin with the tube intact: remaining vaccuum in the tube can cause air to be drawn forcefully into the tube, causing frothing, remove the final tube from the needle holder before withdrawing the needle from the patient's vein
  3. an immune serum that prevents sensitization of an Rh- mother's blood with anti-Rh+ antibodies; if she is not treated and becomes pregnant again with an Rh+ baby, her antibodies will cross through the placenta and destroy the baby's RBCs. The baby will be anemic, hypoxic, and cyanotic, resulting in brain damage or death unless fetal transfusions are done before birth to provide more RBCs for O2 transport
  4. Temperature and transport problems: trauma and temperature extremes can damage cells, freezing will cause ice crystals that puncture cell membranes,tubes should be transported in the upright position with as little trauma as possible, temperature should be controlled, not too hot or cold
  5. hemoglobin

5 True/False questions

  1. Good HDL levelshould be higher than 40 mg/dL to help prevent heart disease by carrying bad cholesterol away from the arteries


  2. plateletcalled thrombocyte, helps clot blood, are fragments of megakaryocyte cells from bone marrow, smallest formed element of blood, round or oval, no nucleus, stain blue.


  3. total cholesterol levelmetabolic products of hemoglobin catabolism to evaluate liver function and aid in diagnosing anemia


  4. venipuncture usual site and veinsantecubital, wrist, forearm veins, hand veins

    antecubital area (ac) median cubital, cephalic, basilic veins are there median cubital first choice basilica and median basilica would be last choice because they are near the brachial nerve and artery which could be punctured accidentally; if no suitable ac site check back of hand or wrist
