RVT Journal Quiz: 39 Issue 4 Article 1 Gasp! Oxygenation and Ventilation in Anesthetized Patients Part 1

Continuing to learn after achieving RVT status is essential for the individual and the advancement of the profession. RVTs can earn one (1) Continuing Education (CE) credit by reading the CE articles in the RVT Journal, or watching recorded sessions of OAVT presentations, and submitting the successfully completed corresponding quizzes.

If you obtain a score of 8 out of 10 (80%) or higher, you will receive a confirmation email which OAVT members can use as acceptable proof for their online CE record.

Oxygen delivery (DO2) to the tissues should be closely monitored with a pulse oximeter throughout the perianesthetic period. *
Which of the following does not directly contribute to arterial oxygen content? *
Adequate cardiovascular and pulmonary system function are both needed to ensure good oxygen delivery to the tissues. *
Which of the following techniques is the best to determine the proper amount of air to put into an ET tube inflation port to create a seal in the trachea? *
If the total volume of your breathing circuit is 3 L and your oxygen flowmeter is set to 1 L/min, what is the time constant, T? *
For the situation described in #5, the concentration of inhalant in the circuit will be close to that of the vaporizer setting in about 3 minutes. *
Which of the following is a consequence of high oxygen flow rates during anesthesia? *
Preoxygenation serves to replace carbon dioxide in the lungs with oxygen, thereby reducing the risk of hypoxemia at induction. *
Which of the following is not a consequence to the patient of increased mechanical dead space? *
A laryngoscope helps to facilitate a more rapid intubation and control of the patient’s airway. *
