Question Question 1. The major impact of the physiological changes that occur with aging is: Reduced physiological reserve Reduced homeostatic mechanisms Impaired immunological response All of the above Question 2. Men have faster and more efficient biotransformation of drugs and this is thought to be due to: Less obesity rates than women Prostate enlargement Testosterone Less estrogen than women Question 3. The cytochrome p system involves enzymes that are generally: Inhibited by drugs Induced by drugs Inhibited or induced by drugs Associated with decreased liver perfusion Question 4. Functional abilities are best assessed by: Self-report of function Observed assessment of function A comprehensive head-to-toe examination Family report of function Question 5. Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) is classified as a microcytic, hypochromic anemia. This classification refers to which of the following laboratory data? Hemoglobin and Hematocrit Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) and Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) Serum ferritin and serum iron Total iron binding capacity and transferrin saturation Question 6. When interpreting laboratory data, you would expect to see the following in a patient with Anemia of Chronic Disease (ACD): Hemoglobin <12 g/dl, MCV decreased, MCH decreased Hemoglobin >12 g/dl, MCV increased, MCH increased Hemoglobin <12 g/dl, MCV normal, MCH normal Hemoglobin >12 g/dl, MCV decreased, MCH increased Question 7. The pathophysiological hallmark of ACD is: Depleted iron stores Impaired ability to use iron stores Chronic unable bleeding Reduced intestinal absorption of iron Question 8. The main focus of treatment of patients with ACD is: Replenishing iron stores Providing for adequate nutrition high in iron Management of the underlying disorder Administration of monthly vitamin B12 injections Question 9. In addition to the complete blood count (CBC) with differential, which of the following laboratory tests is considered to be most useful in diagnosing ACD and IDA? Serum iron Total iron binding capacity Transferrin saturation Serum ferritin Question 10. Symptoms in the initial human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection include all of the following except: Sore throat Fever Weight loss Headache Question 11. Essential parts of a health history include all of the following except: Chief complaint History of the present illness Current vital signs All of the above are essential history components Question 12.Which of the following clinical reasoning tools is defined as evidence-based resource based on mathematical modeling to express the likelihood of a condition in select situations, settings, and/or patients? Clinical practice guideline Clinical decision rule Clinical algorithm Clinical recommendation Question 13. The first step in the genomic assessment of a patient is obtaining information regarding: Family history Environmental exposures Lifestyle and behaviors Current medications Question 14.In autosomal recessive (AR) disorders, individuals need: Only one mutated gene on the sex chromosomes to acquire the disease Only one mutated gene to acquire the disease Two mutated genes to acquire the disease Two mutated genes to become carriers Question 15. In AR disorders, carriers have: Two mutated genes; two from one parent that cause disease A mutation on a sex chromosome that causes a disease A single gene mutation that causes the disease One copy of a gene mutation but not the disease Question 16. A woman with an X-linked dominant disorder will: Not be affected by the disorder herself Transmit the disorder to 50% of her offspring (male or female) Not transmit the disorder to her daughters Transmit the disorder to only her daughters Question 17. According to the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA): Nurse Practitioners (NPs) should keep all genetic information of patients confidential NPs must obtain informed consent prior to genetic testing of all patients Employers cannot inquire about an employee’s genetic information All of the above Question 18. Which of the following would be considered a “red flag” that requires more investigation in a patient assessment? Colon cancer in family member at age 70 Breast cancer in family member at age 75 Myocardial infarction in family member at age 35 All of the above Question 19. Your 2-year-old patient shows facial features, such as epicanthal folds, up-slanted palpebral fissures, single transverse palmar crease, and a low nasal bridge. These are referred to as: Variable expressivity related to inherited disease Dysmorphic features related to genetic disease De novo mutations of genetic disease Different penetrant signs of genetic disease Question 20.In order to provide a comprehensive genetic history of a patient, the NP should: Ask patients to complete a family history worksheet Seek out pathology reports related to the patient’s disorder Interview family members regarding genetic disorders All of the above
