A patients pulse oximetry reading is 92%. What is the bestmethod of oxygen administration for this patient?

A low flow oxygen supply

Explanation:

92% is the threshold for hypoxia, meaning that below 92% a person may need Oxygen supply. Depending of each patient's level of saturation, there are different types of devices and pressures, the lower the Oxygen concentration the more the pressure needed, for 92% a patient may require a low pressure system, such as nasal cannula for supply from 24 to 40% of Oxygen concentration. The second option is a face mask, which provides  between 28% and 50%.

The non-primary auditory pathway is responsible for?

Answer: Carrying all types of sensory messages.

Explanation:

The non-primary auditory pathway carries sensory messages. It is also called as reticular sensory pathway. The auditory messages are converted into sensory messages. The main function of this pathway is connected to the motivation and wake for hormonal and vegetative centers.

The histograms show triglyceride levels for 74 men and 100 women. Triglycerides are a form of fat found in blood. Complete parts (a) and (b) below. a. Compare the distribution of triglyceride levels for men and women. (Be sure to compare the shapes, the centers, and the spreads.) b. Triglyceride levels under 150 are good; levels above 500 are very high and may be a health concern. Which group seems to have better triglyceride levels

Based on the distribution given by the histogram, the distribution of triglyceride for both men and women are skewed to right and the Women distribution seems to have a better triglyceride level.

• The distribution displayed by the histogram have their tails to the right and their peaks to the left of the distribution. Hence, they are both right skewed with the male distribution having a wider spread.

The triglyceride level in Women is better as only about 13 observations above 150 mg/dL. This observations also fall below 500 mg/dL.

The Men's distribution are more spread out, with about 25observations having above 150mg/dL and 1 observation having about 750mg/dL triglyceride level.

Therefore, Women's distribution has a better triglyceride level.

Energy for contraction of myocardial cells comes primarily from a. aerobic respiration in the mitochondria
b. anaerobic respiration in the cytosol
c. glycoludid in the cytosol
d. ATP that is stored while the heart is not contracting
e. creatinine phosphate

The correct answer to the question: Energy for contraction of myocardial cells comes primarily from:___, would be, A: aerobic respiration in the mitochondria.

Explanation:

In order for the heart muscles (myocardium) to contract, there are a series of elements that need to be present. One of them, and most vital, is calcium, which will activate the connection of myosin and actin, the filaments in cardiomyocytes, the very units of muscular tissues in the heart. However, even if calcium were present, without ATP, the molecule of energy that will allow the process to happen, then contractions would not be possible. There simply would not be energy to allow the chemical reactions. The one organelle within the cell that is responsible to ensure there is ATP available, is the mitochondria. This production of ATP by mitochondria, happens through the process of aerobic respiration. This is why the answer is A.

After you measure TV and vital capacity, you must also calculate ________ before you can determine total lung capacity. After you measure TV and vital capacity, you must also calculate ________ before you can determine total lung capacity. inspiratory volume residual volume expiratory reserve volume inspiratory capacity

Residual Volume

Explanation:

Residual volume  is the measurement of volume of air that is remained in the lung after the maximum forceful expiration. Residual Volume varies with age, gender, physical activity level and height. After the measurement of Tidal volume and vital capacity it is also important to calculate residual volume.

Describe 2 possible methods that could be used to overcome issues of physiological balance and make a drug available in the body.

Based on human and animal studies, women are more sensitive to the consumption and long-term effects of alcohol and drugs than men. From absorption to metabolic processes, women display more difficulty in physically managing the consequences of use. In general, with higher levels of alcohol and drugs in the system for longer periods of time, women are also more susceptible to alcohol- and drug-related diseases and organ damage.

A new experimental treatment for major depressive disorder that does not induce seizures, called _____, involves stimulation of certain regions of the brain with magnetic impulses of various frequencies.

A "new experimental treatment" for major depressive disorder that does not "induce seizures" is calledMagnetic Simulation, involves "stimulation" of certain "regions of the brain" with magnetic impulses of various frequencies.

EXPLANATION:

• Magnetic simulation is described as a certain activities running over a mind in a particular region of a brain in which there are magnetic impulses available which have multiple frequency running over simultaneously.
• Magnetic simulation is also known as simulation where there is presence of magnetic field in which there are frequency of low level electromagnetic simulation.
