    Correct Answer
    C. Size up the scene, perform an initial assessment and summon advanced medical personnel.
    Explanation
    In an emergency situation, it is important to first size up the scene to assess the overall situation and identify any potential hazards or risks. This step helps ensure the safety of both the victim and the responder. After sizing up the scene, the next step is to perform an initial assessment of the victim's condition to determine the severity of the injuries or illness. This assessment helps prioritize the necessary medical interventions. Finally, summoning advanced medical personnel should be done after the initial assessment to ensure that the appropriate help is on the way.

    How can you best protect yourself from possible bloodborne pathogen transmission when providing care?

    • A.

      Ask the victim first if he or she has any communicable diseases.

    • B.

      Thoroughly wash your hands before providing care.

    • C.

      Use first aid supplies, such as dressings and bandages, as a barrier when in contact with the victim.

    • D.

      Use personal protective equipment, such as disposable gloves and breathing barriers, when providing care.

    Correct Answer
    D. Use personal protective equipment, such as disposable gloves and breathing barriers, when providing care.
    Explanation
    Using personal protective equipment, such as disposable gloves and breathing barriers, is the best way to protect yourself from possible bloodborne pathogen transmission when providing care. This equipment acts as a barrier between you and any potentially infectious bodily fluids, reducing the risk of exposure. Thoroughly washing your hands before providing care is also important for maintaining hygiene, but it may not provide adequate protection against bloodborne pathogens. Asking the victim about communicable diseases is important for gathering information, but it should not be solely relied upon for protection. Using first aid supplies as a barrier can help protect against some risks, but it may not be as effective as using personal protective equipment specifically designed for this purpose.

    The correct sequence for basic life support is:

    • A.

      Airway, Breathing, Compressions

    • B.

      Breathing, Airway, Compression

    • C.

      Compressions, Airway, Breathing

    • D.

      Breathing, Compressions, Airway

    Correct Answer
    C. Compressions, Airway, Breathing
    Explanation
    The correct sequence for basic life support is Compressions, Airway, Breathing. This order is based on the principle of prioritizing circulation over ventilation. Compressions are performed first to restore blood circulation, followed by clearing the airway to ensure a clear passage for breathing, and finally providing breaths to deliver oxygen to the person in need. This sequence maximizes the chances of survival in a cardiac arrest situation.

    For any victim, the correct compression rate is:

    • A.

      At least 120 per minute

    • B.

      At least 80 per minute

    • C.

      At least 90 per minute

    • D.

       100 to 120 per minute

    Correct Answer
    D.  100 to 120 per minute
    Explanation
    The correct compression rate for any victim is between 100 to 120 per minute. This means that during CPR, the rescuer should aim to perform chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute. This ensures that the victim's blood circulation is maintained and increases the chances of survival. Compressions that are too slow may not be effective in providing adequate blood flow, while compressions that are too fast may not allow the heart to fill properly between compressions.

    The recommended compression depth for an adult is:

    • A.

      1 inch

    • B.

      1.5 inches

    • C.

      At least 2 inches

    • D.

      None of the above are correct

    Correct Answer
    C. At least 2 inches
    Explanation
    The recommended compression depth for an adult is at least 2 inches. This depth is necessary to ensure effective chest compressions during CPR. Compressing the chest at a depth of at least 2 inches helps to generate enough blood flow to the vital organs and increases the chances of survival. Adequate compression depth is crucial in maintaining circulation and delivering oxygen to the brain and other organs during cardiac arrest. Therefore, compressing the chest at a depth of at least 2 inches is the correct recommendation for adults.

    If performing rescue breathing, you should:

    • A.

      Avoid excessive ventilation

    • B.

      Provide a breath every 2 seconds

    • C.

      Do not allow the chest to expand between breaths

    • D.

      All of the above are correct

    Correct Answer
    A. Avoid excessive ventilation
    Explanation
    When performing rescue breathing, it is important to avoid excessive ventilation. This means not providing breaths too frequently or forcefully, as it can cause harm to the person receiving rescue breathing. Providing a breath every 2 seconds is a recommended guideline to ensure a proper balance. Additionally, allowing the chest to expand between breaths is crucial to ensure that the air is effectively reaching the lungs. Therefore, all of the above options are correct when it comes to performing rescue breathing.

    When assessing the victim, you should feel for a pulse for:

    • A.

      3 seconds

    • B.

      5-10 seconds

    • C.

      15-20 seconds

    • D.

      20-30 seconds

    Correct Answer
    B. 5-10 seconds
    Explanation
    When assessing a victim, feeling for a pulse for 5-10 seconds is recommended. This duration allows for enough time to accurately detect the presence or absence of a pulse. It is important to feel for a pulse as it provides crucial information about the victim's circulation and can help determine the need for immediate medical intervention. Feeling for a pulse for a shorter duration may lead to a false negative result, while feeling for a longer duration may waste valuable time in emergency situations.
