    Emergency management is a related term but should not be equated to

    • A.

      First aid

    • B.

      Emergency response

    • C.

      People management

    • D.

      Disaster management

    Correct Answer
    D. Disaster management
    Explanation
    Emergency management is a broader term that encompasses various aspects of preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation for emergencies or disasters. While first aid and emergency response are important components of emergency management, they do not encompass the entire scope of disaster management. People management, on the other hand, refers to the coordination and organization of individuals during emergencies but does not cover all the necessary actions and strategies involved in disaster management. Therefore, disaster management is the most appropriate term to describe the comprehensive approach to addressing and managing disasters.

    You’re having lunch with your mother and she begins to choke on some food. She can’t speak, breathe or cough it up. How can you help?

    • A.

       Give up to five back blows between her shoulder blades

    • B.

      Call 911

    • C.

       Do the Heimlich manoeuvre on her

    • D.

      Put your fingers down her throat to try to dislodge the obstruction

    Correct Answer
    A.  Give up to five back blows between her shoulder blades
    Explanation
    In this situation, giving up to five back blows between her shoulder blades is the correct answer. This technique, known as the back blows, can help dislodge the obstruction from the airway by using the force of the blows to create enough pressure to expel the object. It is important to avoid putting fingers down her throat as it may push the object further and worsen the situation. Calling 911 is also recommended to ensure professional medical help arrives as soon as possible. The Heimlich maneuver may be used if the back blows do not work.

    Your colleague is complaining of breathlessness and a tight pain in the chest. You suspect a heart attack. What should you do?

    • A.

      Get him to lay down flat

    • B.

      Encourage him to stand up and move around slowly

    • C.

      Sit him in a comfortable position

    • D.

      Call 911

    Correct Answer
    C. Sit him in a comfortable position
    Explanation
    In the case of suspected heart attack, it is recommended to sit the person in a comfortable position. This is because sitting helps to reduce the workload on the heart and can alleviate symptoms. It also allows the person to rest and be in a position that is less likely to cause further strain or discomfort. Additionally, sitting upright can help with breathing and reduce the risk of fainting. However, it is important to call 911 immediately for emergency medical assistance.

    Your father has cut his finger in the kitchen and is bleeding profusely. How do you treat his injury?

    • A.

       Apply direct pressure over the wound

    • B.

      Give him an aspirin

    • C.

      Apply salt on the wound

    • D.

       Put the injured limb in some cold water

    Correct Answer
    A.  Apply direct pressure over the wound
    Explanation
    In the given scenario, the correct answer is to apply direct pressure over the wound. Applying direct pressure helps to control bleeding by promoting the clotting process. It is a simple and effective first aid technique that can be done immediately to prevent excessive blood loss. Giving aspirin or applying salt on the wound are not appropriate actions in this situation. Putting the injured limb in cold water may provide temporary relief but does not address the bleeding issue.

    You’re walking home and you see a man lying on the ground. You ask him if he’s all right but he doesn’t respond. What should you do next?

    • A.

      Call 911

    • B.

      Leave him and assume someone else will help him

    • C.

      Pour water on his face

    • D.

       Check his airway to ensure its open

    Correct Answer
    D.  Check his airway to ensure its open
    Explanation
    In this situation, the most appropriate action would be to check the man's airway to ensure it is open. This is important because if the airway is blocked, the person may not be able to breathe properly, which could be life-threatening. By checking the airway, you can assess if there is any obstruction and take appropriate measures to clear it or seek medical help if necessary. Calling 911 may also be necessary, but it is important to first ensure the person's airway is open to prevent any further harm. Pouring water on his face or assuming someone else will help him are not appropriate actions in this situation.

    • A.

       keep their airway open

    • B.

      Perform the heimlich

    • C.

      Hug them

    • D.

      Call 911

    Correct Answer
    A.  keep their airway open
    Explanation
    In the case of someone having a nosebleed, it is important to prioritize controlling the bleeding and keeping their airway open. This is because a nosebleed can potentially lead to blood flowing down the throat and obstructing the airway, causing difficulty in breathing. By keeping the airway open, the person's ability to breathe is ensured, reducing the risk of any further complications.
