Hi Mariam, do you still need help with these questions as well?

Ask Your Own Veterinary Question

This is Dr. Beth by the way, if for some reason that isn't showing on your end-

These were a lot more tricky than some of your other questions! It is almost 2am where I'm at so needing to head to bed - but in case you do still need these I went ahead and picked the answers I would choose.

D. To grasp and bend orthopedic wires and pins

17. Instruments sterilized with a disinfectant are recommended for

A. dental procedures.
B. any outpatient surgery.
C. suturing major skin lacerations.
D. all procedures. (this is a tricky one - Disinfection only reduces the number of microorganisms whereas sterilization is the method of complete removal of the microorganisms - so instruments are not truly sterile if only using a disinfectant. For dental procedures, because mouths are dirty, you can't really keep things sterile - but you also don't want ant tissue/germs on instruments from a prior animal - so proper sterilization is best, ***** ***** an instrument is washed then soaked in a disinfectant solution like chlorhexidine, it can be acceptable to do things in the 'dirty mouth' or a wound like a laceration that is contaminated, too many variables for an outpatient surgery I think but generally would be 'clean' procedures and not needing to be super sterile like a bone surgery. More than you probably wanted to know but I don't like the wording of the question or the choices!!)

18. The safe storage time for a double-wrapped muslin instrument pack in a closed cabinet is

A. three weeks.
B. seven weeks.
C. one week.
D. at least eight weeks

19. The strongest suture material for its size with the greatest knot security is
