Answer the below questions with the best answer. If multiple choice choose only one answer.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A stroke can be described as

    • A.

      An insufficient supply of blood to the heart causing a muscle spasm

    • B.

      An insufficient supply of blood to the brain which can be caused by blockage or bleeding

    • C.

      When people start to drool

    • D.

      Too much blood supplied to the brain causing swelling

    Correct Answer
    B. An insufficient supply of blood to the brain which can be caused by blockage or bleeding
    Explanation
    A stroke occurs when there is an insufficient supply of blood to the brain, which can be caused by either a blockage or bleeding. This lack of blood flow to the brain can lead to the death of brain cells, resulting in various neurological symptoms such as paralysis, difficulty speaking, and loss of coordination. It is a serious medical emergency that requires immediate attention to minimize long-term damage and complications.

    The best acronym to use for a puncture wound to the arm is

    • A.

      RED

    • B.

      RICE

    • C.

      WARTS

    • D.

      PFD

    Correct Answer
    A. RED
    Explanation
    RED is the best acronym to use for a puncture wound to the arm. RED stands for Rest, Elevate, and Direct pressure. Resting the arm helps minimize movement and further injury. Elevating the arm above heart level helps reduce swelling. Applying direct pressure on the wound helps control bleeding. These steps are crucial in managing a puncture wound and promoting proper healing and recovery.

    To best treat for mild shock you use

    • A.

      Warmth, CPR, calm the person down, treatment and rest

    • B.

      Warmth, ABCs, Rest and Reassure, Treatment and Semi-sit position

    • C.

      Warmth, ABCs, Rest and Elevate, Treatment and Semi-prone position

    • D.

      Warmth, ABCs, Rest and Reassure, Treatment and Semi-prone position

    Correct Answer
    D. Warmth, ABCs, Rest and Reassure, Treatment and Semi-prone position
    Explanation
    The correct answer is warmth, ABCs, Rest and Reassure, Treatment and Semi-prone position. This answer is the most appropriate because when treating mild shock, it is important to provide warmth to the person to prevent further heat loss. ABCs refers to Airway, Breathing, and Circulation, which are essential steps in assessing and addressing any life-threatening conditions. Rest and Reassure help to calm the person down and reduce anxiety. Treatment should be provided based on the specific cause of the shock. The semi-prone position helps to improve blood flow and oxygenation.

  • 4. 

    Which condition only lasts up to 20mins with the temporary signs of anxiety and head pain

    • A.

      Transient Ischemic Attack

    • B.

      Angina

    • C.

      Stroke

    • D.

      Asthma

    Correct Answer
    A. Transient Ischemic Attack
    Explanation
    A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is a condition that only lasts up to 20 minutes and is characterized by temporary signs of anxiety and head pain. It is often referred to as a mini-stroke because it produces similar symptoms to a stroke but resolves quickly without causing permanent damage. Angina is chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart, while a stroke is a sudden interruption of blood flow to the brain resulting in long-lasting neurological damage. Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by difficulty breathing, which does not match the given symptoms.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The difference between Angina and Heart Attack are

    • A.

      One deals with your lungs and one deals with your brain

    • B.

      One is a medically diagnosed condition the other is not

    • C.

      One is medically diagnosed and the other is diagnosed online

    • D.

      There is no difference

    Correct Answer
    B. One is a medically diagnosed condition the other is not
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "one is a medically diagnosed condition the other is not." This explanation is based on the fact that angina is a medically diagnosed condition, referring to chest pain or discomfort caused by reduced blood flow to the heart, while a heart attack is a serious medical condition caused by a complete blockage of blood flow to the heart. Unlike angina, a heart attack is a life-threatening emergency that requires immediate medical attention.

  • 6. 

    What part of the body if the skin is torn will bleed the most

    • A.

      Neck and shoulders

    • B.

      Upper arm and chest

    • C.

      Upper leg and thigh

    • D.

      Facial and head

    Correct Answer
    D. Facial and head
    Explanation
    The facial and head area contains a high density of blood vessels, making it more likely to bleed profusely if the skin is torn. This is because the face and head have a rich blood supply to support the brain and sensory organs. In contrast, the neck and shoulders, upper arm and chest, and upper leg and thigh have fewer blood vessels, so they would not bleed as much if the skin is torn in those areas.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    True or False airway obstruction (choking) can only occur in conscious victims

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. Airway obstruction, also known as choking, can occur in both conscious and unconscious victims. In conscious individuals, it can be caused by a foreign object blocking the airway, while in unconscious individuals, it can be due to the tongue falling back and blocking the airway. Prompt intervention and proper techniques such as the Heimlich maneuver or CPR may be necessary to clear the obstruction and restore the victim's breathing.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Is a person at high risk or low risk if hyperventilation occurs on land?

    • A.

      High

    • B.

      Low

    • C.

      Not at risk

    Correct Answer
    B. Low
    Explanation
    If hyperventilation occurs on land, a person is at low risk. Hyperventilation is a condition in which a person breathes rapidly and deeply, leading to a decrease in carbon dioxide levels in the blood. This can cause symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and tingling in the extremities. While these symptoms can be distressing, hyperventilation is not typically life-threatening and does not pose a significant risk to a person's health or safety. Therefore, the correct answer is low risk.

  • 9. 

    People with this condition are likely to have specific triggers

    • A.

      Hypothermia

    • B.

      Aspiration

    • C.

      Asthma

    • D.

      Bleeding

    Correct Answer
    C. Asthma
    Explanation
    People with asthma are likely to have specific triggers that can cause their symptoms to worsen. These triggers can vary from person to person but commonly include allergens such as pollen, dust mites, or pet dander, as well as irritants like smoke or strong odors. When exposed to these triggers, individuals with asthma may experience difficulty breathing, wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness. Therefore, asthma is the correct answer as it is a condition characterized by airway inflammation and hyperresponsiveness, making individuals more susceptible to these triggers.

    The best way to treat someone with hypothermia is

    • A.

      A sling

    • B.

      A warm pool of water

    • C.

      Body-body heat

    • D.

      An ice pack

    Correct Answer
    C. Body-body heat
    Explanation
    The best way to treat someone with hypothermia is by providing body-to-body heat. This involves direct physical contact with the person suffering from hypothermia in order to transfer heat from a warm individual to the hypothermic person. This method helps to raise the body temperature of the hypothermic individual and prevent further heat loss. It is a simple and effective way to provide immediate warmth and can be done by hugging, holding, or sharing body heat with the person in need.
