Blood Quiz:

 

1. Which of these blood cells has a characteristic “telephone receiver” shaped nucleus?

Basophil
Eosinophil
Neutrophil
Monocyte

 

2. Which of these blood cells has a multi-lobed nucleus?

Basophil
Eosinophil
Neutrophil
Monocyte

 

3. Which of these diagnostic tests is performed to note the identity of the first 100 WBC’s encountered on a blood smear?

Sedimentation rate
Hemoglobin determination
Differential white count
Platelet count

 

4. Where would a right-handed person place the drop of blood on a microslide when preparing a blood smear?

You would place the drop at the right end of the slide.
You would place the drop at the left end of the slide.
You would place the drop in the center of the slide.
You would place the drop at the far edge of the slide.

 

5. Why is there no “well” for type-O on the blood typing test plate?

There is no well for type-O because we do not test for type-O.
There is no well for type-O because if you lack both A and B, then you must be type-O.
There is no well for type-O because we do not need to test for type-O.
There is no well for type-O because we only assess Rh.

 

6. What happens to sedimentation rate during anemia?

During anemia, sedimentation rate will increase.
During anemia, sedimentation rate will decrease.
During anemia, sedimentation rate will remain the same.
During anemia, sedimentation rate is not a clinical factor.

 

7. Which of these is the old “blotting paper” hemoglobin concentration determination test?

Korotkoff test
Anemia test
Hemoglobinometer test
Tallquist test

 

8. What am I adding to a blood typing test plate when I add “anti-A”?

When I add anti-A, I am adding the antibody against type-A.
When I add anti-A, I am adding the antigen against type-A.
When I add anti-A, I am adding the agglutinogen against type-A.
When I add anti-A, I am adding the antibody against type-B.

5-12 minutes
2-7 minutes
Antibody
Eosinophil
Monocyte

 

NOTE: You are responsible for the visual identification of the various blood cells and their structures. You also must be able to visually interpret a blood typing test. Practical applications such as these are an inherent part of each laboratory activity and exam.
