March 11, April 1 Compute: arch 5=day 0 M arch arch 12=day 7 M arch April 2=day 28 25. The site of immunization is the: A. Gluteal area B. Anterolateral area of the thigh C . Deltoid area I can¶t really find the exact phrase in our handouts wherein it is said that Deltoid area is for pre-exposure prophylaxis, but I guess that¶s the answer because Gluteal area & Anterolateral thigh are used more for P OST-exposure OST-exposure treatment. 26. Because of a continuing risk of exposure, a booster dose should be given: A. Every 6 months B. Every 5 years C. No booster dose is needed D.

B and C Choice A is not the answer because Equine rabies immunoglobulin should be given 40 units/kg on day 0 ONLY . 28. A few hours prior to consultation, a 9 year old girl was bitten by her sister¶s pet dog on her right leg.

the diagnosis of substance abuse is very difficult. But urine and blood tests are usually done to know if the person is a user or not.

A and B E. All of the above Substance abuse is regarded as the nation¶s public enemy number 1 . It is a public health concern because it affects a large percentage of the population, a socio-cultural problem, problem, an economic burden, most probably because it affects the working age group in our country, and a peace and order problem rolled into one.
