"The waiting room is filled with patients, are you up for the challenge? Call in your first patient and let's get started!"
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
Your first patient today is an elderly lady. She's somewhat overweight and complains that she's thirsty all the time and has to go to the bathroom much more often than usual. You tell her you want to check her blood sugar level after a night of fasting, so you give her an appointment for tomorrow. Which disease are you thinking of?
A little boy comes in with his mother. While the boy tries to tear down those expensive oil paintings you got for your birthday last year, his mum worriedly tells you her son has these strange red concentric circles on his left leg. The first thing that pops into your mind is Lyme disease, but to be more certain you need some extra information. What do you ask the mother?
Do you live near a busy road?
Has your son been in contact with kids that have lice?
Has your son been bitten by a tick lately?
Did your son fall of his bike?
The next person sitting in the waiting room is an absent-minded young woman. When you try to get an overview of her medical history, she mentions she's been seeing some kind of doctor. The woman doesn't remember exactly, but he was Chinese and did something with needles. What was his specialism?
After you've finished some paperwork it's time for the next patient. It's a teenage boy and although he isn't exactly happy to see you, the visit is a welcome escape from school, and from his algebra test! His face is full of pimples and he's really desperate, because the Clearasil that his mum bought him just won't work. What's the common name for the skin condition he (and a lot of adolescents with him) is suffering from?
(One word, four letters)
When the teenager leaves your office, he almost bumps into the patient coming in. It's a well-dressed man in his forties, who's very busily talking on his mobile phone. He's carrying a briefcase, probably a business man. He's here to get his cholesterol level checked. What influences the cholesterol level?
All of these
Just when you're about to go out for lunch a waiter is brought in. While serving lemonade he was stung by a wasp and his leg has started to swell already. He's obviously allergic to wasps, so you prepare an injection to stop the allergic reaction. What does your syringe contain?
Your lunch was delicious and you're ready for whatever the afternoon may bring, so you call in your next patient. It's an anthropology student planning a trip to Africa to do some research. He wants a prescription for chloroquine. For which tropical disease is chloroquine used as both a prevention and a treatment?
An adolescent girl on rollerblades comes skating through the door while you're busy reading her chart. She only needs you to remove some stitches in her arm that were put in last week, after she'd skated into a dumpster. You have the stitches out in a flash, but you're still thinking about your patient's chart. It said she was diagnosed with glandular fever (mononucleosis) two years ago. Back then, which of these symptoms would she have been complaining about?
Swollen and painful lymph nodes
All of these
The next patient is a little girl, brought in by her nanny. She has a rash and bloodshot eyes, and after asking a couple of questions you're relieved that the only other patient left in the waiting room is male. Why? Because you just diagnosed the little girl with a disease that can be very harmful to unborn babies and since he's male, well, he can't be pregnant, can he? Which disease, that can cause foetal defects or miscarriage when contracted by a pregnant woman, do you think the little girl is suffering from?
Phew, only one more patient for today, and then you can enjoy your well-earned night off. The guy entering your office looks a bit timid and when you ask for the reason of his visit he blushes a bit. After beating around the bush for a while he confesses that he's had unprotected sex last weekend and is afraid that he's caught an STD. So, which disease is he not worried about?
