Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the appropriate method for opening the airway of a patient with no suspected trauma who is unconscious?

    • A.

      E-C

    • B.

      Head Tilt/Chin Lift

    • C.

      Jaw Thrust

    • D.

      Can Opener

    • E.

      Sniffing Position

    Correct Answer
    B. Head Tilt/Chin Lift
    Explanation
    The appropriate method for opening the airway of an unconscious patient with no suspected trauma is the Head Tilt/Chin Lift technique. This method involves tilting the patient's head back while lifting their chin forward, which helps to open up the airway by straightening the passage between the mouth and the lungs. This allows for better airflow and facilitates the patient's breathing. The Jaw Thrust technique is typically used for patients with suspected trauma to avoid further injury to the neck and spine. The Can Opener and Sniffing Position are not recognized methods for opening the airway.

    Compressions should be at a rate of _____ per minute

    • A.

      60

    • B.

      80

    • C.

      90

    • D.

      100

    • E.

      120

    Correct Answer
    D. 100
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 100 because compressions should be performed at a rate of 100 compressions per minute during CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation). This rate ensures that the chest is compressed at an adequate speed to effectively circulate blood and oxygen to the body's vital organs.

  • 3. 

    Push hard, fast and ________

    Correct Answer
    Don't stop
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Don't stop" because it completes the phrase "Push hard, fast and..." in a logical and consistent manner. The phrase suggests that one should continue with their efforts without giving up or slowing down. It emphasizes the importance of perseverance and determination in achieving success.

  • 4. 

    The maximum acceptable amount of time to have the hands off the chest for ventilation or pulse check should be?

    • A.

      15 seconds

    • B.

      12 seconds

    • C.

      30 seconds

    • D.

      2 seconds

    • E.

      10 seconds

    Correct Answer
    E. 10 seconds
    Explanation
    The maximum acceptable amount of time to have the hands off the chest for ventilation or pulse check should be 10 seconds. This time limit is crucial in order to minimize interruptions in chest compressions during CPR. Any longer delay in providing compressions can lead to decreased blood flow and lower chances of successful resuscitation. Therefore, it is important to quickly assess for breathing and pulse, and then promptly resume chest compressions if needed.

    Pediatric AED pads can be used on an adult. (True or False)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Pediatric AED pads are specifically designed for children and have lower energy levels compared to adult AED pads. Using pediatric AED pads on an adult may not deliver enough energy to effectively restore the heart's normal rhythm during a cardiac arrest. It is important to use the appropriate size and type of AED pads for the age and size of the patient to ensure the best chance of successful defibrillation. Therefore, the statement that pediatric AED pads can be used on an adult is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The appropriate sequence for using an AED is:

    • A.

      Apply pads, turn on machine, shock, analyze, clear the patient

    • B.

      Turn on AED, apply pads, clear the patient, shock

    • C.

      Shock, turn on AED, clear the patient apply pads

    • D.

      Perform pulse check, Clear the patient, turn on AED, shock

    • E.

      Just shock...no need for anything else

    Correct Answer
    B. Turn on AED, apply pads, clear the patient, shock
    Explanation
    The correct sequence for using an AED is to first turn on the AED, then apply the pads to the patient's chest, clear the patient to ensure no one is touching them, and then administer the shock if advised by the AED. This sequence ensures that the AED is properly functioning, the pads are correctly placed, the patient is safe from any interference, and the shock is delivered effectively.
