Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the cause of a heart attack?

    • A.

      Too much blood to the heart muscle

    • B.

      Heart gets too big in size

    • C.

      Heart gets too small in size

    • D.

      Not enough blood to the heart muscle

    Correct Answer
    D. Not enough blood to the heart muscle
    Explanation
    A heart attack occurs when there is not enough blood flowing to the heart muscle. This can happen due to a blockage in the coronary arteries, which supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart. When the blood flow is restricted or completely blocked, the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen and nutrients, leading to damage or death of the heart tissue. This condition is commonly caused by the buildup of fatty deposits called plaques in the arteries, a condition known as coronary artery disease.

    What is the last step in treating a victim with a head injury?

    • A.

      Check for neck injury

    • B.

      Call 911

    • C.

      Treat for shock

    • D.

      Elevate head and shoulders

    Correct Answer
    C. Treat for shock
    Explanation
    The last step in treating a victim with a head injury is to treat for shock. This is because head injuries can often lead to shock, which is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the body doesn't receive enough blood flow. Treating for shock involves keeping the victim warm, elevating their legs if possible, and covering them with a blanket to prevent heat loss. It is important to address shock promptly to prevent further complications and ensure the victim's safety.

    One cause of a seizure is a concussion?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A concussion can indeed cause a seizure. A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that occurs when the brain is jolted or shaken forcefully. This sudden impact can disrupt the normal electrical activity in the brain, leading to a seizure. Seizures are abnormal bursts of electrical activity in the brain that can cause a wide range of symptoms, including convulsions, loss of consciousness, and abnormal movements. Therefore, it is true that a concussion can be a cause of a seizure.

    A contusion is a broken blood vessel?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A contusion is a type of bruise, which occurs when there is damage to blood vessels beneath the skin. This damage causes blood to leak out and collect in the surrounding tissues, resulting in discoloration and swelling. Therefore, a contusion can be considered as a broken blood vessel, making the statement "A contusion is a broken blood vessel" true.

    The first step in treating a victim with a head injury is to call for emergency medical assistance. This can be done by calling 911, which will connect you to the appropriate emergency services. It is important to seek professional help immediately in order to ensure the victim receives the necessary medical attention and treatment for their head injury. Calling the police or asking for help from others may also be necessary depending on the situation, but the priority is to get medical assistance as quickly as possible.

    If someone has a poisonous spider bite, which one of these answer choices should you do?

    • A.

      Keep part above heart

    • B.

      Keep part below heart

    • C.

      Keep part on the same height as the heart

    • D.

      Amputate part

    Correct Answer
    B. Keep part below heart
    Explanation
    When someone has a poisonous spider bite, it is recommended to keep the affected part below the heart. This helps to slow down the spread of venom throughout the body. By keeping the part below the heart, gravity assists in preventing the venom from reaching vital organs quickly. This can buy some time until medical help arrives or the person can be taken to a healthcare facility for proper treatment.

    An incision refers to a straight cut made on a surface, typically made with a sharp instrument such as a scalpel or a knife. It is a deliberate and controlled action, resulting in a clean and precise opening or wound. Unlike a jagged tear or a hole, an incision is characterized by its straightness and intentional nature. A scrape, on the other hand, involves the removal of superficial layers of skin due to friction or abrasion, which is different from an incision.

    A. True
    Explanation
    If a person is unconscious, it is important to assume that they need help and begin providing first aid.

Unconsciousness can be a sign of a serious medical condition or injury, and immediate first aid can potentially save their life or prevent further harm. Therefore, it is crucial to take action without delay.

    What is an avulsion?

The severity of an avulsion can vary, ranging from a minor tear to a complete detachment of the body part. Immediate medical attention is usually required to treat and repair avulsions, as they can result in significant bleeding and damage to the affected area.
