CPR Emergency Procedures! Trivia Quiz - Quiz


What is CPR? CPR is cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It is an emergency life-saving technique that is performed when the person’s heart stops beating. This technique is often used when someone is having a heart attack or can rescue someone drowning. In most situations, you should be doing chest compressions to the victim until emergency help arrives. This quiz is all about CPR. You got this.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What does A, B, C, stand for?

    • A.

      Airway, Breathing, Compression

    • B.

      Assessment, Bilateral, Circumduction

    • C.

      Appearance, Background, Component

    • D.

      Airway, Breathing, Circulation

    Correct Answer
    D. Airway, Breathing, Circulation
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Airway, Breathing, Circulation. This acronym is commonly used in first aid and emergency situations to prioritize the necessary steps for providing medical assistance. It reminds responders to first ensure the airway is clear, then check for breathing, and finally assess circulation. This sequence is crucial for maintaining the patient's vital functions and determining the appropriate course of action.

    What is the ratio for compression to rescue breath for CPR?

    • A.

      30:2

    • B.

      15:2

    • C.

      10:1

    • D.

      20:3

    Correct Answer
    A. 30:2
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 30:2. In CPR, the ratio for compression to rescue breath is important to ensure effective chest compressions and ventilation. The ratio 30:2 means that for every 30 chest compressions, 2 rescue breaths should be given. This ratio allows for adequate circulation and oxygenation during CPR, increasing the chances of successful resuscitation.

    If someone is bleeding, what is the first action one must take?

    • A.

      Put a bandaid

    • B.

    • D.

      Clean it up

    Correct Answer
    C. Put on gloves
    Explanation
    The first action one must take when someone is bleeding is to put on gloves. This is important to protect oneself from any potential pathogens or contaminants present in the blood. By putting on gloves, one can minimize the risk of infection or transmission of diseases. Once gloves are worn, further actions such as applying pressure to the wound, cleaning it up, and applying a bandaid can be taken.

    Correct Answer
    A. Unconscious victim
    Explanation
    EMS (Emergency Medical Services) is activated when dealing with an unconscious victim. This is because an unconscious victim may be experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, such as cardiac arrest or severe trauma, and requires immediate medical attention. Activating EMS ensures that professional medical help will be dispatched to the scene promptly, increasing the chances of saving the victim's life.

    Correct Answer
    B. Clear any objects that can potentially hurt the victim
    Explanation
    When someone has a seizure, the primary action to take is to clear any objects that can potentially hurt the victim. This is important because during a seizure, the person may have uncontrolled movements and can accidentally hit or injure themselves on nearby objects. By removing any potential hazards, the risk of injury can be minimized, ensuring the safety of the individual experiencing the seizure.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is to ask if the person is choking and wants assistance. This is important because not all choking victims may want or need help, and it is essential to respect their autonomy and preferences. Additionally, asking this question ensures that the person is indeed choking and in need of immediate assistance before any intervention is performed.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Explain what just happened and calm him or her down
    Explanation
    In the event that someone undergoes shock, it is important to explain to them what just happened and try to calm them down. This can help them understand the situation and reduce their anxiety or panic. Yelling at them to calm down may only escalate their distress further. Not responding or waiting for EMS to arrive without providing any comfort or reassurance can leave the person feeling alone and scared. Therefore, explaining the situation and offering support is the most appropriate response to comfort someone in shock.

    B. 5
    Explanation
    In CPR, it is recommended to perform 30 chest compressions followed by 2 rescue breaths. This cycle should be repeated continuously at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute. In 2 minutes, a rescuer should aim to complete around 5 cycles of CPR for an adult. Each cycle consists of 30 compressions and 2 rescue breaths. This allows for effective chest compressions and adequate ventilation to maintain blood circulation and oxygenation.

    What should you do before the AED analyzes the rhythm?

    • A.

      Ensure that the person shows signs of life and is breathing

    • B.

      Ensure that there is head tilt/jaw thrust

    • C.

      Make sure the victim is awake

    • D.

      Make sure no one, including you, is touching the person

    Correct Answer
    D. Make sure no one, including you, is touching the person
    Explanation
    Before the AED analyzes the rhythm, it is important to make sure that no one, including yourself, is touching the person. This is because any contact with the person can interfere with the AED's ability to accurately analyze the rhythm of the heart. By ensuring that no one is touching the person, the AED can provide a more accurate assessment of the person's condition and deliver the appropriate treatment if necessary.
