1. In a clinical laboratory, the extent of laboratory services provided depends upon the

. mission of the MTF.

2

CDC.

3

3. (002) In the medical field, which is a description of integrity?

Being faithful to one’s convictions.

4

4. (002) Which ethical value do we describe as “to treat people with dignity, honor privacy, and allow self-determination”?

Respect.

5

5. (003) Due to veins that are weak and difficult to locate, it is suggested that the most appropriate method for venipuncture at this stage is with a syringe.

Geriatric.

6

6. (003) Loyalty, cooperation, and working together effectively to render quality health care are part of

teamwork.

7

7. (004) Records play a vital role in managing and operating Air Force activities because they serve as

the memory of the organization, a record of past events, and the basis for future actions.

8

8. (004) Who is responsible for maintaining, servicing, and disposing of records for their office?

RTs.

9

9. (005) Which is not part of analytical quality control?

.Reporting results.

10

10. (005) Which is not a reason for performing method validation?

Lot number change on a test kit.

11

11. (005) Which may be due to deteriorating reagents or improper instrument calibration?

Systematic error.

12

12. (006) In an OI, where would you find panic or alert values?

Reporting results.

13

13. (006) Which does not apply to approval and review of OIs?
a. Major changes require a review.
b. They must be reviewed annually.
c. Minor changes do not require a review.

c. Minor changes do not require a review.

14

14. (007) The AFOSH Program requires that commanders provide all Air Force personnel a safe and healthy

work environment in which recognized hazards have been eliminated or controlled.

15

15. (007) The mere presence of a hazardous material does not necessarily create a hazard; an exposure must include a

source, pathway, and receiver.

16

16. (007) AFOSH Standard 48–22, Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories, divides chemical hazards into two categories––

health and physical.

17

17. (007) Which of the following includes a written program, hazardous chemical inventories, hazard determinations, MSDS, labeling of hazards, and employee information and training?

Workplace Written Hazard Communication Program.

18

18. (008) If a hazard cannot be eliminated immediately, an

AF Form 457, USAF Hazard Report (HR), is required.

19

19. (009) If an infectious specimen tube breaks in the centrifuge, turn off the centrifuge immediately, and

. allow 15 minutes for aerosols or droplets to settle and clean with 5% sodium hypochlorite.

20

aerosols.

24

24. (012) Store food and beverages in

a separate refrigerator away from any possible contamination.

25

25. (013) We use syringe systems for patients with

fragile or difficult veins because you can control vacuum pressure, thus avoiding collapsed veins.

26

26. (013) Which of the following is the correct tube collection order for drawing blood?

Blood cultures, clot tubes, citrate, heparin, EDTA, oxalate, and then fluoride tubes.

27

27. (014) Which of the following is not a risk for parenteral administration?

Medication is totally absorbed.

28

28. (014) Why is the median cubital vein the preferred site for venipuncture?

It is close to the skin’s surface, it is large, and it is anchored by surrounding tissue.

29

29. (014) When should you label the blood specimens or tubes?

Before leaving the bedside or side of the patient.

30

30. (014) When drawing blood from an elderly patient,

detached and floating veins can cause difficulty; anchor the vein both above and below the venipuncture site.
