Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. In 1974, Henry Heimlich, an American physician from Delaware developed a special treatment for which of these?

Answer: choking

First referred to as "abdominal thrusts", the treatment was named after the good doctor. The "Heimlich maneuver" is used on a regular basis whenever a person shows signs of choking such as not being able to speak or turning blue in the face. An object is lodged in the airway and a thrust into the person's abdomen forces the object out of the victim's mouth.
2. Christiaan Barnard, a famous South African surgeon was the first to perform what medical procedure?

Answer: heart transplant

On December 3rd, 1967 Barnard, assisted by his brother, performed the surgery on a 55 year old patient named Louis Washkansky. The patient suffered from diabetes as well as incurable heart disease. The transplanted heart came from a woman who had died in a car accident.

Although Washkansky died after 18 days due to pneumonia, the procedure was a major breakthrough in the world of medicine.
3. On April 12, 1955 an American doctor from New York named Jonas Salk introduced a vaccine for what disease?

Answer: polio

The vaccine was first tested on volunteer subjects in 1952. The success of those tests allowed Salk to introduce the vaccine to the world in 1955.
4. A Russian physician by the name of Boris Yegorov has the distinction of being the first physician to accomplish what?

Answer: first physician in outer space

Yegorov was chosen as part of a crew of cosmonauts on the Russian spacecraft Voskhod I. The spaceship launched on October 12, 1964 and besides having the first physician onboard, the mission was also the first to have more than one person onboard as well as the first without space suits. The mission was designed to beat the American Gemini program to that accomplishment.
5. Which of the following physicians was credited with the discovery and development of insulin?

Answer: Fredrick Banting

Several physicians before Banting had done research attempting to find a treatment for diabetic patients. In the spring of 1921 Banting, with the assistance of a medical student named Charles Best, began working on the discovery. On January 11, 1922 the first insulin treatment was used on a 14 year old diabetic.

The treatment was so impure that the patient, Leonard Thompson developed an allergic reaction to the injection. Later that spring a purer sample of the insulin was produced and soon after was put on sale for diabetics to use.

In 1923 Banting received the Nobel Prize for his discovery.
6. Who is the famous but controversial pathologist who earned the nickname "Dr. Death" due to his practice of physician-assisted suicide for terminal patients?

Answer: Kevorkian

Kevorkian believed it was a terminal patient's right to die as opposed to living a life of pain and misery. And even though he felt his actions were justified, it wasn't enough to keep him from being arrested and charged with murder. He claims to have assisted 130 patients in suicides.

He was imprisoned in 1999 to serve on a 10-25 year prison term. He served only eight years and was released on June 1, 2007 but was expected to live less than a year because of a case of Hepatitis C which he contracted while serving in Vietnam.
7. In 1816 a French physician named René Laennec was credited with the invention of what medical instrument?

Answer: stethoscope

The first stethoscope was very simply a long hollow wooden tube with a round ear-piece on on end and a larger similar piece on the other end which was placed against the patient's chest. As the years went by the instrument was modified to be flexible with a rubber tube connected to a round metal plate that is placed on the chest and the other end connected to two curved earpieces.

Its the one medical instrument that you see every doctor carrying around their neck.
8. On March 14th, 1942 Dr. Orvan Hess became the first physician to treat a patient with what medication?

Answer: penicillin

The drug which was discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1928 was one of the most common drugs used by physicians to prevent bacterial infections. Hess, by the way, was also responsible for the development of the fetal heart monitor which was used to monitor a pregnant woman and the heart beat of her fetus.
9. This internationally renowned medical practice facility was founded by a physician from the United Kingdom and his two sons in 1889. In 2006, the magazine "US News" and "World Report" ranked it the second best medical center in the USA. What is the name of this famous medical practice facility?

Answer: Mayo Clinic

Located in Rochester, Minnesota, this historical hospital or clinic as it is called, evolved from the medical practice of William Mayo. A tornado hit the town in 1889 and in order to treat the survivors Mayo worked with nuns from the Convent of St Francis. That same year Mayo built the 27 bed St. Mary's Hospital which became the Mayo Clinic we see today.

In 2006 it had 1157 beds and a staff of over 1500 medical personnel. There have been a large number of well known patients at the Mayo Clinic over the years including the late President John F. Kennedy, Beatle George Harrison, King Hussein of Jordan, NFL great Walter Payton, Jazz musician Benny Goodman and Baseball legend Lou Gehrig.
10. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who was born in Scotland, began to practice medicine in 1882. His practice initially wasn't that successful, so while waiting for patients he took up another profession for which he became more famous. What was this profession?

Answer: writer

Doyle is best known for his stories about the detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle was influenced by Edgar Allan Poe, and Doyle influenced mystery writer Agatha Christie who admired his Sherlock Holmes stories. He continued to practice medicine even though his skill as a writer of detective fiction became his claim to fame.
