  1. systolic pressure
  2. pyrexia
  3. antipyretic
  4. red blood cell count
  5. vital signs
  1. a 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. b temperature, pulse, respiration, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and pain
  3. c substance or procedure that reduces fever
  4. d pertaining to or resulting from ventricular contraction
  5. e abnormal elevation of the temperature of the body above 37 C (98.6 F) because of disease; same as fever

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. continued exposure to extreme heat raising the core body temperature to 40.5 C (105 F) or higher
  2. abnormal lowering of blood pressure that is inadequate for normal perfusion and oxygenation of tissues
  3. disappearance of sound when obtaining a blood pressure; typically occurs between the first and second Korotkoff sounds
  4. measured in a complete blood count
  5. thermometer which relies on thermal radiation from the ear canal, tympanic membrane, axilla, and temporal artery to measure body temperature

5 True/False questions

  1. afebrilepertaining to or characterized by an elevated body temperature


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


  3. bradycardiaa slow heart rate, less than 60 beats per minute in adults


  4. pulse pressurecondition 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. dysrhythmiadeviation from the normal pattern of the heartbeat
