The following steps in doing the tourniquet test are correct EXCEPT:<br />A BP apparatus is used for the purpose<br />Cuff is inflated to a level between systole and diastole<br />The level of mercury column is maintained for 5 minutes<br />The number of petechiae counted in 2 inch square<br />More than 20 petechiae is diagnostic of Dengue fever <br />XXIII. 05. Important investigations of relevance in Dengue the following:<br />WBC count<br />Platelet count<br />Serum Aminotransferace<br />Dengue IgM ELISA test<br />All of the above<br />XXIII. 06.

Dengue Hemorrhagic fever is identified by the detection of:<br />Positive tourniquet test<br />Obvious bleeding tendencies<br />Platelet count less than 1,00,000<br />Excessive capillary permeability <br />All of the above<br />XXIII. 08. Clinical and radiological evidence of increased capillary permeability includes the following EXCEPT:<br />Ascites<br />Bilateral pleural effusion<br />Pericardial effusion<br />Myxedema<br />Pitting pedal edema<br />XXIII. 09.

The following statements regarding PRP and Platelet concentrates are TRUE, EXCEPT:</li></ul>Both are derived from pooled blood samples<br />Both are tested negative for HbsAg and HIV<br />Both increase the platelet count by 5-10,000<br />Platelet concentrates are indicated in fluid overload<br />Platelet concentrate is very rich in plasma proteins<br />XXI. 13. If there is severe thrombocytopenia or bleeding tendencies initially, Platelet counts shall be monitored:<br /><ul><li>Hourly
  2. 2. 6 hourly
  3. 3. Daily
  4. 4. Once in three days
  5. 5. Once in a week</li></ul>XXI. 14.
