    You should not administer medicine of any kind to your baby without checking with your doctor first.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Administering medicine to a baby without consulting a doctor first can be potentially dangerous. Babies have delicate immune systems and their bodies may react differently to medications compared to adults. Certain medications may not be suitable for babies, and the dosage may need to be adjusted based on their weight and age. Additionally, some medications may have side effects or interactions that could harm the baby. Therefore, it is crucial to seek professional medical advice before giving any medicine to a baby.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following could be a sign of internal bleeding?

    • A.

      Coughed-up blood

    • B.

      Cuts on the skin

    • C.

      Deformity

    Correct Answer
    A. Coughed-up blood
    Explanation
    Coughed-up blood could be a sign of internal bleeding because it suggests that blood is leaking into the respiratory system and being expelled through coughing. Internal bleeding occurs when blood vessels inside the body are damaged or ruptured, leading to blood pooling or leaking into tissues or body cavities. Coughing up blood, also known as hemoptysis, can be caused by various conditions such as lung infections, pulmonary embolism, or trauma to the chest. It is important to seek medical attention if coughing up blood occurs, as it may indicate a serious underlying condition.

    You should never apply pressure to an injured eye with your fingers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Applying pressure to an injured eye with your fingers can cause further damage and potentially worsen the injury. The eye is a delicate organ, and any additional pressure can lead to increased pain, swelling, or even rupture. It is important to seek immediate medical attention and avoid touching or rubbing the injured eye to prevent further harm.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following are common symptoms of poisoning?

    • A.

      Drooling

    • B.

      Sweating

    • C.

      Waving of the arms

    • D.

      Sleeping

    • E.

      Increased appetite

    • F.

      Lethargy

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Drooling
    B. Sweating
    F. Lethargy
    Explanation
    Drooling, sweating, and lethargy are common symptoms of poisoning. Drooling is often a result of excessive salivation, which can occur when certain toxins are ingested. Sweating is a common response to toxins in the body as the body tries to eliminate them. Lethargy, or extreme tiredness and lack of energy, can also be a symptom of poisoning as the body's systems are affected by the toxins. These symptoms can vary depending on the specific toxin and the individual's reaction to it.

    It is safe to give CPR to a baby whose heart is beating.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not safe to give CPR to a baby whose heart is beating. CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a technique used to revive someone whose heart has stopped beating. If a baby's heart is already beating, performing CPR could potentially harm them and disrupt their normal heart rhythm. It is important to only administer CPR when the baby's heart has stopped or they are not breathing.

  • 8. 

    A small baby still requires a large amount of air to fill their lungs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A small baby does not require a large amount of air to fill their lungs. In fact, babies have smaller lung capacity compared to adults and their respiratory system is not fully developed at birth. They have a higher respiratory rate to compensate for their smaller lung size, but the actual volume of air they inhale is relatively lower. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given symptoms described, such as collapse, eyes rolling upward, foaming at the mouth, stiffening of the body followed by uncontrollable jerking movements, are all commonly associated with seizures. Seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain and can manifest in various ways depending on the individual.
