    C. Remove imbedded objects from body
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to remove imbedded objects from the body. This is because removing imbedded objects can cause further damage and should only be done by medical professionals. The general care for head, neck, and back injuries includes stabilizing the victim against movement, maintaining an open airway, and checking consciousness and breathing. These steps are important to ensure the safety and well-being of the injured person.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Back injury symptoms can sometimes take up to 48 hours to appear after an accident. This is because it can take time for inflammation and swelling to develop, and for the body to respond to the injury. Therefore, it is true that back injury symptoms can appear up to 48 hours after the accident.

    Do not move the victim of a head, neck or spine injury even if there is imminent danger

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Moving a victim with a head, neck, or spine injury can potentially worsen the damage and lead to paralysis or other serious complications. It is important to keep the victim still and wait for medical professionals who are trained to handle such injuries.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which is NOT a symptom of a head injury

    • A.

      Headache

    • B.

      Blood or other fluids in the ears or nose

    • C.

      Laceration

    • D.

      Drowsiness

    Correct Answer
    C. Laceration
    Explanation
    A laceration is a cut or tear in the skin, and it is not a symptom of a head injury. Symptoms of a head injury may include a headache, blood or other fluids in the ears or nose, and drowsiness. Lacerations are typically caused by external trauma to the skin, such as a cut from a sharp object, and are not directly related to a head injury.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Do not elevate the head as it might increase blood flow to the head

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Elevating the head can increase blood flow to the head. This can be problematic in certain situations, such as when a person has a head injury or is experiencing a migraine or headache. By keeping the head in a neutral position, blood flow to the head is not increased, which can help alleviate symptoms and prevent further complications. Therefore, the statement "Do not elevate the head as it might increase blood flow to the head" is true.
