Medical Quiz - These Are Some Things You Gotta Know About CPR - Quiz

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions often with artificial ventilation in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.
This is a Medical Quiz and these are some things you gotta know about CPR


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You should check for responsiveness by doing one of the following:

    • A.

      Placing an obnoxious odor under the victim's nose.

    • B.

      Sprinkling cold water on the victim's face.

    • C.

      Shaking the victim and shouting, "Are you okay?"

    Correct Answer
    C. Shaking the victim and shouting, "Are you okay?"
    Explanation
    The correct answer is shaking the victim and shouting, "Are you okay?" This is because responsiveness refers to the person's ability to respond to external stimuli. By shaking the victim and shouting, we are trying to elicit a response from them. If they are conscious and responsive, they should react to the stimuli by either waking up or indicating that they are okay. This method is a common first aid technique used to assess a person's level of consciousness and determine if further medical assistance is needed.

    If the victim is unresponsive, you should immediately:

    • A.

      Start CPR before dialing 9-1-1.

    • B.

      Dial 9-1-1 before starting CPR.

    • C.

      Wait to see if the victim becomes responsive.

    Correct Answer
    B. Dial 9-1-1 before starting CPR.
    Explanation
    In case of an unresponsive victim, it is crucial to prioritize getting professional medical help by dialing 9-1-1 before starting CPR. This is because emergency medical services are equipped with the necessary resources and expertise to provide advanced medical care. While CPR is important for maintaining blood circulation, it is essential to involve professionals as soon as possible to increase the chances of the victim's survival. Waiting to see if the victim becomes responsive delays the potential life-saving actions that can be taken by trained medical personnel.

    To check if the victim is breathing, you should:

    • A.

      Listen for exhaled air.

    • B.

      Watch for his chest to rise and fall.

    • C.

      Feel for exhaled air.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because when checking if a victim is breathing, you should listen for exhaled air, watch for their chest to rise and fall, and feel for exhaled air. These are all different ways to assess if the person is breathing and provide a comprehensive evaluation of their respiratory status.

    The most common airway obstruction is:

    • A.

      Food

    • B.

      False Teeth

    • C.

      The tongue

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. The tongue
    Explanation
    The tongue is the most common airway obstruction because it can fall back and block the airway, especially in unconscious individuals. This can lead to difficulty breathing or complete obstruction of the airway, which can be life-threatening if not quickly addressed.

    The techniques used to clear the victim's airway is:

    • A.

      Lift chin up, tilt head back.

    • B.

      Push chin down, tilt head forward.

    • C.

      Lift chin up, turn head sideways.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    A. Lift chin up, tilt head back.
    Explanation
    To clear the victim's airway, the correct technique is to lift the chin up and tilt the head back. This helps to open up the airway and allow for better airflow. Pushing the chin down and tilting the head forward would actually obstruct the airway further. Turning the head sideways would not effectively clear the airway either. Therefore, the correct answer is to lift the chin up and tilt the head back.

    Check for circulation by feeling for pulse at the:

    • A.

      Jugular vein

    • B.

      Heart

    • C.

      Carotid artery

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Carotid artery
    Explanation
    The carotid artery is the correct answer because it is one of the main arteries that supplies blood to the head and neck. By feeling for a pulse in the carotid artery, one can assess the circulation and determine if blood is flowing properly. The jugular vein is a vein, not an artery, and feeling for a pulse there would not provide information about circulation. The heart is also not a suitable location for checking circulation by feeling for a pulse.

    When assisting the victim with breathing:

    • A.

      Pinch the victim's nose.

    • B.

      Do not over-inflate the victim's lungs.

    • C.

      Allow the victim to exhale on his own.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because when assisting a victim with breathing, it is important to pinch the victim's nose to ensure that air is not escaping through the nostrils. Over-inflating the victim's lungs can cause damage, so it should be avoided. Allowing the victim to exhale on their own is also crucial as it allows them to expel carbon dioxide and make room for fresh air to enter the lungs. Therefore, all of these actions are necessary when assisting a victim with breathing.

    When administering chest compressions:

    • A.

      Position your hands on the sternum.

    • B.

      Give 2 breaths after 30 compressions

    • C.

      Apply the "2 hand, 2 inches" rule.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because all the statements mentioned are true when administering chest compressions. Positioning your hands on the sternum ensures effective compression of the heart. Giving 2 breaths after 30 compressions helps provide oxygen to the person's lungs. Applying the "2 hand, 2 inches" rule ensures sufficient pressure is applied to the chest for effective compressions. Therefore, all the statements are correct and should be followed when administering chest compressions.
