 Part 2 - The Test

 

1) Rehabilitation:

A) Is a multidimensional continuum of services directed to persons with cardiac and/or pulmonary disease and their families

B) Has an interdisciplinary team of specialists

C) Has the goal of achieving and maintaining the individual's maximum level of independence and functioning in the community

D) All the above

2) Pulmonary rehabilitation aims to:

A) Reduce symptoms and improve the QOL for patients with chronic respiratory disease

B) Decrease participation in physical and social activities

C) A & B

D) None of the above

3) Successful cessation programs usually employ such tools as:

A) Patient education, establishment of a quit date, and follow-up support

B) Relapse prevention and advice for healthy lifestyle changes

C) Social support systems and adjuncts to treatment (medications)

D) All of the above

4) Factors about Oxygen Therapy in Pulmonary Rehabilitation include:

A) Studies showed that long-term oxygen therapy decreases survival 2-fold or more in hypoxemic patients with COPD

B) Hypoxemia is defined as PaO2 of less than 85 mm Hg or as oxygen saturation of less than 98%

C) Oxygen reduces mortality rates in patients with advanced COPD because of the favorable effects on pulmonary hemodynamics

D) None of the above

5) Inhaled beta 2-agonist bronchodilators:

A) Activate specific B2-adrenergic receptors on the surface of smooth muscle cells

B) Raises levels of intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (AMP) and increases smooth muscle relaxation

C) A & B

D) None of the above

6) Strength training is a rational component of exercise training during pulmonary rehabilitation because:

A) Low-intensity leg and arm muscle conditioning has led to increased ventilatory equivalent for oxygen and carbon dioxide
B) Peripheral muscle weakness contributes to exercise limitation in patients with lung disease
C) A & B
D) None of the above

7) Comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation programs may include:

A) Exercise training, education, psychosocial/behavioral intervention, and outcome assessment
B) Interventions provided by a multidisciplinary team that often includes physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and social workers
C) A & B
D) None of the above

8) Cardiac rehabilitation programs may include:

A) Very close surveillance of patients with significant cardiac arrhythmias during their exercise
B) Concomitant rhythm monitoring with telemetry, Holter or event monitoring
C) In cases of serious arrhythmias, therapy remains controversial and the safety of exercise is unclear; such uncertainties complicate the decision-making process
D) All of the above

9) Cardiac rehabilitation services are contraindicated in patients with:

A) Severe residual angina, uncompensated heart failure, uncontrolled arrhythmias
B) Severe ischemia, LV dysfunction, arrhythmia during exercise testing
C) Poorly controlled hypertension, hypertensive or any hypotensive systolic blood pressure response to exercise
D) All of the above

10) Cardiac rehabilitation services phases include:

A) Phase 1 - Initiated after the patient leaves the hospital
B) Phase 2 - A supervised ambulatory outpatient program spanning 3-6 months
C) Phase 3 - A maintenance phase for less than a year
D) None of the above

 

 Part 3 - Evaluation

 

 Learner's achievement of each objective. Rate each on a scale of 1=low 5=high

 

Objective 1

1) Identify the goals, indications, and program components of rehabilitation for the pulmonary and cardiac patients. Recognize the benefits, risks, and safety issues of the rehabilitation programs. List the members of the team, the components of exercise training, outcome measures, and monitoring patients in rehabilitation programs. Identify factors that are important to improve patient adherence to the rehabilitation programs.
