CPR - Adult Component - Quiz

You don’t need to be a medical professional to know how to save a life. In fact, if you find yourself in a position where there is no immediate help at hand and someone near you is in a medical emergency, you’ll regret not having learned CPR when you had the chance. Learning it practically is much better for teaching you how it’s done, but an online quiz is the next best thing! Let’s see how well you know CPR in this quiz!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following are signals of trouble breathing?

    • A.

      Noisy or painful breathing.

    • B.

      Unusually deep or shallow breathing.

    • C.

      Changes in skin color.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    Noisy or painful breathing, unusually deep or shallow breathing, and changes in skin color can all be signals of trouble breathing. Noisy or painful breathing can indicate that there is an obstruction or inflammation in the airways. Unusually deep or shallow breathing can be a sign of respiratory distress or a problem with lung function. Changes in skin color, such as turning pale or blue, can suggest a lack of oxygen in the body. Therefore, all of these symptoms can indicate trouble breathing.

    What care should you give to a conscious adult who is choking and cannot cough, speak or breath?

    • A.

      Give 2 slow rescue breaths.

    • B.

      Do a foreign object look/removal.

    • C.

      Give back blows and abdominal thrusts.

    • D.

      Lower the person to the floor and open the airway.

    Correct Answer
    C. Give back blows and abdominal thrusts.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to give back blows and abdominal thrusts. When a conscious adult is choking and unable to cough, speak, or breathe, the recommended care is to perform back blows and abdominal thrusts. Back blows involve delivering firm blows between the shoulder blades with the heel of your hand, while abdominal thrusts involve applying inward and upward pressure on the person's abdomen. These techniques are intended to dislodge the foreign object causing the choking and restore the person's ability to breathe.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Always check for signs of life for no more than - 

    • A.

      1 second

    • B.

      2 seconds

    • C.

      5 seconds

    • D.

      10 seconds

    Correct Answer
    D. 10 seconds
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 10 seconds because it is important to thoroughly check for signs of life before assuming that there is none. By observing for a longer duration, it allows for more accurate assessment and reduces the risk of missing any subtle signs. This duration provides enough time to carefully observe the person's breathing, pulse, or any other indicators of life.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    When giving a rescue breath to an adult, you should give the breath over a period of about - 

    • A.

      1 second

    • B.

      1/2 second

    • C.

      3 seconds

    • D.

      4 seconds

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 second
    Explanation
    When giving a rescue breath to an adult, it is recommended to give the breath over a period of about 1 second. This allows for an adequate amount of air to be delivered into the person's lungs, ensuring that oxygen is being supplied effectively. Giving the breath too quickly or too slowly may not provide enough oxygen or may cause discomfort to the person receiving the rescue breath. Therefore, a period of 1 second is considered to be the most appropriate duration for giving a rescue breath to an adult.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If a person is suffering from pain or discomfort in the chest that lasts more than 3 to 5 minutes or that goes away and comes back, this person is most likely having - 

    • A.

      A heart-related emergency.

    • B.

      A cold-related emergency.

    • C.

      A heart attack.

    • D.

      A seizure.

    Correct Answer
    C. A heart attack.
    Explanation
    If a person is experiencing pain or discomfort in the chest that lasts for a prolonged period or comes and goes, it is most likely a symptom of a heart attack. A heart-related emergency and a heart attack are closely related, as a heart attack is a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention. The other options, a cold-related emergency and a seizure, do not typically present with chest pain or discomfort as a primary symptom.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    About how many cycles of CPR should you perform for an adult in 2 minutes?

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      1

    Correct Answer
    C. 5
    Explanation
    In CPR, it is recommended to perform cycles of chest compressions and rescue breaths. The correct answer of 5 suggests that in a span of 2 minutes, approximately 5 cycles of CPR should be performed for an adult. This means that within those 2 minutes, the rescuer should deliver a combination of 30 chest compressions and 2 rescue breaths in each cycle. This helps to maintain blood circulation and oxygenation to the vital organs, increasing the chances of survival for the patient.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The cycles of compressions and breaths in CPR for an adult is - 

    • A.

      15 compressions for every 3 breaths.

    • B.

      15 compressions for every 1 breath.

    • C.

      30 compressions for every 2 breaths.

    • D.

      30 compressions for every 1 breath.

    Correct Answer
    C. 30 compressions for every 2 breaths.
    Explanation
    In CPR for an adult, the correct cycle of compressions and breaths is 30 compressions for every 2 breaths. This means that after performing 30 chest compressions, the rescuer should give 2 breaths to the person in need of CPR. This ratio ensures that there is an adequate balance between chest compressions to circulate blood and breaths to provide oxygen to the person's lungs.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    About how often should you stop and check for signs of life when performing CPR on an adult?

    • A.

      After the first minute, then every other minute thereafter.

    • B.

      CPR should not be interrupted or stopped until an AED is ready to use, another trained responder takes over or you see an obvious sign of life.

    • C.

      After every minute (or after every 4 cycles of compressions and breaths).

    • D.

      After the first minute, then not again until EMS personnel arrive.

    Correct Answer
    B. CPR should not be interrupted or stopped until an AED is ready to use, another trained responder takes over or you see an obvious sign of life.
    Explanation
    CPR should not be interrupted or stopped until an AED is ready to use, another trained responder takes over or you see an obvious sign of life. This is because continuous chest compressions and rescue breaths are crucial for maintaining blood flow and oxygenation to the vital organs. Stopping CPR without a valid reason can lead to a decrease in the chances of survival for the patient. Regularly checking for signs of life is important, but it should not interrupt the ongoing CPR until the specified conditions are met.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Early CPR is an important link in the Cardiac Chain of Survival because - 

    • A.

      CPR prevents heart attacks.

    • B.

      With early CPR, most cardiac arrest victims do not need defibrillation.

    • C.

      It helps circulate the blood that contains oxygen to the vital organs until an AED is ready to use or advanced medical personnel arrive.

    • D.

      It helps restart the heart.

    Correct Answer
    C. It helps circulate the blood that contains oxygen to the vital organs until an AED is ready to use or advanced medical personnel arrive.
    Explanation
    Early CPR is an important link in the Cardiac Chain of Survival because it helps circulate the blood that contains oxygen to the vital organs until an AED is ready to use or advanced medical personnel arrive. This is crucial because during cardiac arrest, the heart stops pumping blood effectively, leading to a lack of oxygen to the brain and other vital organs. CPR helps to manually pump the blood, providing oxygen to these organs and increasing the chances of survival until further medical intervention can be provided.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    You should continue CPR until - 

    • A.

      The scene is determined to be safe.

    • B.

      The person's condition worsens.

    • C.

      You are too exhausted to continue.

    • D.

      You need to call 911 or the local emergency number for advice on a nonlife-threatening condition.

    Correct Answer
    C. You are too exhausted to continue.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "You are too exhausted to continue." This is because CPR requires a significant amount of physical exertion and can be physically demanding. If the person performing CPR becomes too exhausted to continue, it is important for them to step back and allow someone else to take over or wait for emergency medical services to arrive. It is crucial to maintain the quality and effectiveness of CPR, and continuing while exhausted may compromise the person's chances of survival.
