Why Are There Multiple Choice Questions on Mechanical Ventilation?

In order to give high quality patient care, all health professionals near the bedside must learn about the functions, limitations, and advantages of different ventilator modes. It is also important for the health professional to understand the various ways in which a patient may adjust or react to a ventilator. Knowledge about these aspects empower those who work in the health industry to promptly identify problems and quickly take corrective actions.

1. An artificial airway, like an endotracheal tube, is used in the following type of ventilation.

A. Positive Pressure

B. Negative pressure

  • Answer: A

2. Pressure is applied to the abdomen and thorax to draw air into the lungs through the upper airway in the following type of ventilation.

A. Positive Pressure

B. Negative pressure

  • Answer: B

3. Iron lung ventilators used after the polio epidemics in the first half of the 20th century belong to...

A. Positive Pressure Ventilation

B. Negative pressure Ventilation

  • Answer: B

4. One of the following modes of ventilation “locks out” the patient's efforts to breathe.

A. Controlled Mandatory Ventilation

B. Synchronous Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation

C. Assist Control Mode

D. Pressure Control Mode

  • Answer: A

D. Pressure Control Mode

  • Answer: B

7. Minute ventilation is equal to...

A. FiO2 X PEEP

B. FiO2/PEEP

C. Tidal Volume X Respiratory Rate

D. Tidal Volume/Respiratory Rate

  • Answer: C

8. What are the Ventilator Parameters adjusted to maintain the optimum Minute Ventilation?

A. FiO2 and PEEP

B. Tidal Volume and Respiratory Rate

  • Answer: B

9. Which are the Ventilator Parameters adjusted to maintain the optimum oxygenation?

A. FiO2 and PEEP

      It was rather is of great use to me. But my appetite is huge and pocket empty. can I get such academic material regularly free of cost for the benefit of my own and my critical care pediatric patients and residents ? if yes the how ??

      Dear Fahad,

      Please share the article in your friends' circle

      These are important mcqs for students of medicine, nursing, respiratory therapy and physiotherapy.

      Many thanks

      Hi Bethany

      I am glad that that answer could be of use to you.

      You are most welcome for any further clarifications :)

      Thanks for the reply! I was just curious as to if there were some distinguishing features between the two. Being new to the field, it's great to have a perspective on terminology that may not be taught anymore, but that is still thrown around. There's nothing worse than talking to a doctor and hearing a term you aren't familiar with in the hospital atmosphere. Thanks for the learning opportunity.

      Hi Bethany

      Both terms mean the same. "controlled mechanical ventilation" is relatively an older terminology. I mean when we were (older generation) were students, we were taught is "controlled mechanical ventilation or "controlled mandatory ventilation.

      Now you are using the term "continuous mechanical ventilation"

      The characteristics are same

      However, now a days we hardly see this mode being used

      It was a very common mode for post neuro-surgical patients in the 90s

      Patients were given sedation and muscle paralysing agents along with CMV

      I enjoyed your MCQs, however I'm curious about the term "controlled mechanical ventilation." The term I am familiar with is "continuous mechanical ventilation" and have always been taught that it is interchangeable with assist-control. Just trying to compare my knowledge base to yours! :)
