Biomedical Instrumentation Internship Test

Intern has to take Biomedical Instrumentation internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Biomedical Instrumentation topic.

1. Phonocardiography is listening to __________
(A) arm muscle sound
(B) lungs sound
(C) heart sound
(D) respiratory tract sound
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: A phonocardiogram (or PCG) is a record high-constancy recording of sounds and mumble made by the heart with the assistance of the machine called phonocardiography. Consequently, phonocardiography is the chronicle of the considerable number of sounds made by the heart amid a heart cycle. Mostly stethoscope is used phonocardiography.

2. Which of the following statement is false about polarizable electrodes?
(A) they are made using stainless steel
(B) used for recording resting ECG
(C) retain a residual charge when exposed to large pulse of energy
(D) can transmit small bioelectric signals even after getting exposed to large pulse of energy
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Polarizable electrodes usually employ stainless steel and are used for resting ECG or other situations where there is small likelihood that the electrode would be exposed to a large pulse of energy (such as defibrillation discharge) in which case they would retain a residual charge, become polarized, and will no longer transmit the relatively small bioelectric signals, thus become useless.

3. The basic functional unit of nervous system is ____________
(A) nerves
(B) axon
(C) neuron
(D) dendrite
View Answer

Answer: C
Explanation: The basic functional unit of the nervous system is a neuron. A typical neuron consists of a nucleated cell body and has several processes and branches. The dendrites normally conduct impulses towards the cell body and the axon conducts away from it.

4. The contraction of the skeletal muscles results in the generation of action potential in the individual muscle fibers. Record of this action potential is called ______________
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The contraction of the skeletal muscles results in the generation of action potential in the individual muscle fibers, a record of such action potential is known as electromyogram (EMG). The activity is similar to that observed in the cardiac muscles (ECG or EKG), but in the skeletal muscles, repolarization takes place much more rapidly. The action potential lasts for only few milliseconds.

5. Which of the following metal is preferred for manufacturing micro electrodes?
(A) Stainless steel
(B) Tungsten
(C) Iron
(D) Copper
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Tungsten is preferred for constructing micro-electrodes due to its mechanical strength and its apparent inertness. Although tungsten itself is reactive, a surface layer of tungsten oxide will, in most situations, protect the metal against corrosion.
