Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    When you are providing first aid you should:

    • A.

      A. wear personal protective equipment (PPE).

    • B.

      B. only wear PPE if the person is someone you do not know

    • C.

      C. not be concerned about PPE if you wash your hands.

    • D.

      D. use cloth gloves to protect

    Correct Answer
    A. A. wear personal protective equipment (PPE).
    Explanation
    When providing first aid, it is important to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect yourself from any potential hazards or infections. PPE includes items such as gloves, masks, and goggles, which create a barrier between you and the person you are treating. This helps to prevent the transmission of pathogens and reduces the risk of contamination. Regardless of whether you know the person or not, wearing PPE is necessary to ensure your safety and the safety of the person receiving first aid. Washing hands alone is not sufficient to protect against all potential risks, hence the need for PPE.

    When you phone for help, you should stay on the line with the dispatcher until:

    • A.

      A. people with more advanced training arrive.

    • B.

      B. the dispatcher tells you it's ok to hang up.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. the dispatcher tells you it's ok to hang up.
    Explanation
    When you phone for help, it is important to stay on the line with the dispatcher until they tell you it's okay to hang up. This is because the dispatcher is trained to gather all necessary information and provide instructions to help you in the situation. Hanging up before they give you permission may result in a loss of important information or instructions that could potentially help you or others involved. Therefore, it is crucial to follow the dispatcher's guidance and stay on the line until they give you the go-ahead to hang up.

    • C.

      C. heart attack

    • D.

      Seizure

    Correct Answer
    B. B. stroke
    Explanation
    The warning signs described in the question, sudden numbness or weakness on one side of the body, are classic symptoms of a stroke. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is disrupted, leading to damage to brain cells. Fainting, heart attack, and seizure may also have symptoms that involve weakness or numbness, but they do not specifically mention the one-sided nature of the symptoms, which is a key characteristic of a stroke. Therefore, the correct answer is b. stroke.
