Do You Know Some of These Hospital Machines and Laboratory Equipments? Take This Quiz

Since I am working as a clinical service engineer for nearly 8 years, I am here once again guys for a quiz to challenge you all how well do you know and familiarized these following hospital machines and laboratory equipments.

Make sure to get 11/15 to pass this quiz. I know some of you here don’t really know much of these machines, unless you’re a nurse, rad tech, med tech, or a biomed either. But anyway, if not, this is your chance to be familiarized with these stuffs in case you happen to be at the care system of health care personnel.

So are you ready? Take this quiz now and share this to your friends. Good luck!

  • This machine uses transducers or probes with gel for scanning fetus, detect excretory diseases, heart failures, etc. It sends out high-frequency sound waves, which reflect off body structures. A computer receives the waves and uses them to create a picture. This test does not use ionizing radiation. Philips, GE, Toshiba, Samsung, Mindray, Siemens are among its famous brands. What diagnostic machine is this?

    • CT scan
    • MRI
    • Ultrasound
    • X-ray
  • This device gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who is in cardiac arrest. It sends out high energy shock for essential life-saving step in the chain of survival. It has two paddles used to shock unconscious or near-death patients. Philips, HeartSine, Physio-Control, Zoll, Cardiac Science are among its famous brands. What machine is this?

    • defibrillator
    • ventilator
    • infusion pump
    • sphygmomanometer
  • This machine uses magnetic and radio waves to create pictures of tissues, organs and other structures within the body, which can then be viewed on a computer. Unlike some other modes of medical imaging, there is no exposure to X-rays or any other damaging forms of radiation. GE, Philips, Siemens, Toshiba are among the famous brands of this machine. What machine is this?

    • ECG
    • MRI
    • EEG
    • ESU
  • Which of the following machine should be used to help premature or sick babies survive and thrive?

    • defibrillator
    • ventilator
    • incubator
    • nebulizer
  • It is a machine designed to move breathable air into and out of the lungs, to provide breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or breathing insufficiently. What machine is this?

    • defibrillator
    • nebulizer
    • patient monitor
    • ventilator
  • This laboratory equipment can be benchtop devices or placed on a cart; other systems require floor space. They are used to determine the concentration of certain metabolites, electrolytes, proteins, and/or drugs in samples of serum, plasma, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, and/or other body fluids. This machine is not as easy to deal with as you can see. It requires thorough training to study and fix this machine. A machine specially designed for med techs and lab specialists. What machine is this?

    • electrolyte analzyer
    • chemistry analyzer
    • centrifuge
    • autoclave
  • An electrolyte analyzer is a laboratory equipment used to measure electrolyte levels in the human body to detect metabolic imbalances and measure renal and cardiac function. Which of the following is not measured by this equipment?

    • sodium
    • potassium
    • chloride
    • iron
  • Who originally invented sphygmomanometer, an instrument for measuring blood pressure, typically consisting of an inflatable rubber cuff which is applied to the arm and connected to a column of mercury next to a graduated scale, enabling the determination of systolic and diastolic blood pressure by increasing and gradually releasing the pressure in the cuff?

    • Scipione Riva-Rocci
    • Samuel Siegfried Karl Ritter von Basch
    • Harvey Cushing
    • René Laennec
  • This laboratory tool is commonly used in chemistry, biology and medicine to transport a measured volume of liquid, often as a media dispenser. What lab tool is this?

    • pipette
    • burette
    • vortex mixer
    • homogenizer
  • EKG is a machine used to detect and record heart’s electrical activity. Which of the following is not a name for this machine?

    • electroencephalogram
    • electrocardiogram
    • ECG
    • electrocardiography machine
  • It is a pressure chamber used to carry out industrial processes requiring elevated temperature and pressure different from ambient air pressure. What is this?

    • radiant warmer
    • ergometer
    • autoclave
    • ebulliometer
  • Which of the following does not belong to a group of diagnostic machines?

    • X-Ray
    • Ultrasound
    • MRI scanner
    • Proctoscopy
  • It is an electronic medical device that consists of one of more monitoring sensors, a processing component(s), and a screen display (also called a “monitor”) that provide and record for medical professionals a patient’s medical vital signs (body temperature, blood pressure, pulse rate and respiratory rate) or measurements of the activity of various body organs such as ECG monitors, anesthesia monitors, or EKG monitors. What is this?

    • life monitor
    • patient monitor
    • vital monitor
    • generic monitor
  • It is a piece of equipment that puts an object in rotation around a fixed axis (spins it in a circle), applying a potentially strong force perpendicular to the axis of spin (outward). It simply separates whole blood from its serum. What is this?

    • centrifuge
    • plate shaker
    • hemoglobin analyzer
    • glucometer
  • What form of engineering responsible primarily for applying and implementing medical technology to optimize healthcare delivery and is required to understand all modern medical technologies, as well as train, troubleshoot, and design, while managing entire clinical settings?

    • Medical engineering
    • Biomedical engineering
    • Laboratory engineering
    • Clinical engineering

    • Thanks for taking my quiz and getting a half score…That’s not bad, at least u have earned a knowledge regarding these machines that we should be aware of knowing…Thse machines are not to be taken for granted coz they’re lifesavers… Have a nice day Anastasia 🙂

  1. You got 11 out of 15 right! On question 8 about the blood pressure monitor, I read about another person. I found this information. Here she is:
    For the measurement of AQU in clinical practice, the indirect sphincomanometric method introduced by the Italian physician, Scipione Riva-Rocci, is mainly used.
    The blood pressure values measured by this method are written with RR – initials of Riva-Rocci.

    I do not contradict the answer. I’ve been with high blood pressure for many years. And I’ve reviewed a lot of posts.
