      None of the above. There is only one type of choking - choking.

    Correct Answer
    D. A or B.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A or B. This is because there are indeed two types of choking: mild and severe, or partial and fully obstructed. These terms are used to describe the severity of the obstruction in the airway. So, both options A and B are correct in describing the different types of choking.

    If someone is having an asthma attack, you should:

    • A.

      Have them stop all activity.

    • B.

      Help them administer their medication.

    • C.

      Take them to a cold area of give them something cold to drink.

    • D.

    • E.

      A, B and D only.

    Correct Answer
    E. A, B and D only.
    Explanation
    If someone is having an asthma attack, it is important to have them stop all activity to prevent further strain on their lungs. Assisting them in administering their medication can help alleviate their symptoms and open up their airways. Taking them to a cold area or giving them something cold to drink can also help to soothe their airways and provide some relief. If their breathing does not improve with rest and medication, it is crucial to call 9-1-1 for immediate medical assistance. Therefore, the correct answer is A, B, and D only.

    If a child is having a severe allergic reaction and they have an Epi-pen at school, you should:

    • A.

      Wait 10-15 minutes to be sure it is severe enough to use the Epi-pen.

    • B.

      Help the child administer the Epi-pen, then call 9-1-1 immediately.

    • C.

      Call 9-1-1 and wait until they arrive to give the Epi-pen.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. Help the child administer the Epi-pen, then call 9-1-1 immediately.
    Explanation
    In the event of a severe allergic reaction in a child who has an Epi-pen at school, the correct course of action is to help the child administer the Epi-pen and then call 9-1-1 immediately. Administering the Epi-pen promptly is crucial in preventing the reaction from escalating and potentially becoming life-threatening. Calling 9-1-1 ensures that professional medical help is on the way to provide further assistance and treatment. Waiting to be sure of the severity or waiting for emergency services to arrive before using the Epi-pen can delay potentially life-saving intervention.

    Your biggest concern with bleeding wounds is:

    • A.

      Infection.

    • B.

      The mess.

    • C.

      Stopping the bleeding.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    • E.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. Stopping the bleeding.
    Explanation
    The biggest concern with bleeding wounds is stopping the bleeding. This is because excessive bleeding can lead to severe blood loss, which can be life-threatening. In order to prevent further complications and promote healing, it is crucial to stop the bleeding as quickly as possible. Infection and the mess caused by bleeding wounds are also concerns, but they are secondary to the primary concern of stopping the bleeding.

    If you suspect a child has a concussion, you should:

    • A.

      Treat it as a head and spine injury, depending on how it happened and the signs and symptoms.

    • B.

      Hold the child still, call 9-1-1, and put ice on the injured area.

    • C.

      Complete a secondary survey, including a head-to-toe check, and if a spine injury is not suspected, call the parents to take to the child to the hospital.

    • D.

      Both A and C.

    • E.

      Both B and C.

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and C.
    Explanation
    If you suspect a child has a concussion, you should treat it as a head and spine injury, depending on how it happened and the signs and symptoms. This means taking precautions to immobilize the child and calling emergency services if necessary. Additionally, you should complete a secondary survey, including a head-to-toe check, to assess for any other injuries. If a spine injury is not suspected, you should then contact the parents and advise them to take the child to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Therefore, both options A and C are correct.

    You should splint a suspected broken bone by following these principles:

    • A.

      Splint above and below the injured part.

    • B.

      Check circulation before and after splinting.

    • C.

      Only splint if it won't cause more pain or injury.

    • D.

      You must always splint a suspected broken bone.

    • E.

      All of the above, except for D.

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above, except for D.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "All of the above, except for D." This means that all of the principles mentioned should be followed when splinting a suspected broken bone, except for the statement that says "You must always splint a suspected broken bone." This implies that there may be situations where splinting is not necessary or appropriate, depending on factors such as pain levels and potential for further injury.

    What are the two concerns with wounds?

    • A.

      Level of injury and Bleeding.

    • B.

      Bleeding and Infection.

    • C.

      Just a cut or is there something in there?

    • D.

      Layer of skin damaged and Infection.

    • E.

      Both A and C.

    Correct Answer
    B. Bleeding and Infection.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Bleeding and Infection. When it comes to wounds, two primary concerns are the amount of bleeding and the risk of infection. Bleeding can be a significant issue, especially if it is excessive or difficult to control. Infection is another concern as open wounds create an entry point for bacteria and other pathogens, which can lead to further complications. Therefore, both bleeding and infection should be addressed and monitored when dealing with wounds.

      Stop the bleeding and call 9-1-1.

    • B.

      Examine the damage to the remaining tissue.

    • C.

      Put the body part in a bag, wrap it and keep it cool.

    • D.

      Don't give the bag to the person to hold because it will upset them.

    • E.

      Only A and C.

    Correct Answer
    E. Only A and C.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Only A and C" because the first aid for an amputation includes stopping the bleeding and calling 9-1-1, as well as putting the amputated body part in a bag, wrapping it, and keeping it cool. The option B, which suggests examining the damage to the remaining tissue, is not mentioned as a step in the first aid process. The option D, which advises against giving the bag to the person to hold because it will upset them, is not a part of the first aid procedure either.

    There are three types of burns called:

    • A.

      First Degree, Second Degree, Third Degree.

    • B.

      Upper layer, mid layer, lower layer.

    • C.

      Superficial, Partial Thickness, Full Thickness.

    • D.

      Epidermal, Dermal, and Subdermal.

    • E.

      None of the above are currently used in the Red Cross manual.

    Correct Answer
    C. Superficial, Partial Thickness, Full Thickness.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Superficial, Partial Thickness, Full Thickness." These terms are used to classify burns according to their severity and depth. Superficial burns only affect the top layer of the skin, causing redness and mild pain. Partial thickness burns extend into the deeper layers of the skin, causing blisters and more intense pain. Full thickness burns penetrate all layers of the skin and can even affect underlying tissues, resulting in charring and numbness. These classifications are commonly used in medical practice to determine the appropriate treatment and prognosis for burn injuries.

    The treatment for a diabetic emergency is same for both high and low sugar.

    • A.

      TRUE - you should give the person their medication in both cases.

    • B.

      FALSE - you must treat them differently or you will make the person's condition worse.

    • C.

      TRUE - give sugar to the person in either case - you don't need to know if it's too high or too low.

    • D.

      FALSE - If it is too high, give medication and if it is too low, give sugar.

    • E.

      Both B and D.

    Correct Answer
    C. TRUE - give sugar to the person in either case - you don't need to know if it's too high or too low.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is true because in a diabetic emergency, whether the blood sugar is too high or too low, giving sugar to the person is the appropriate treatment. This is because in both cases, the body is lacking the necessary insulin to regulate blood sugar levels, and providing sugar helps to stabilize the person's condition. It is not necessary to know the exact blood sugar level in order to administer sugar in a diabetic emergency.

    First aid for a seizure includes:

    • A.

      Keeping the person safe during the seizure.

    • B.

      Holding down their arms and legs.

    • C.

      Checking for injury after and putting them in the recovery position.

      Calling 9-1-1 if they have multiple seizures or don't wake up after the seizure.

    • E.

      Both A, C, and D.

    Correct Answer
    E. Both A, C, and D.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both A, C, and D." This is because first aid for a seizure includes keeping the person safe during the seizure (option A), checking for injury after and putting them in the recovery position (option C), and calling 9-1-1 if they have multiple seizures or don't wake up after the seizure (option D). Holding down their arms and legs (option B) is not recommended as it can cause injury to the person experiencing the seizure.

    For any type of heat-related emergency, you should always:

    • A.

      Cool the person quickly so it doesn't become too serious.

    • B.

      Cool the person gradually, so they don't go into shock.

    • C.

      Don't try to cool the person right away, but Do give them cool liquids to drink.

    • D.

      Place the person in a bath-tub filled with cold water and have them drink luke-warm tea.

    • E.

      Give them ice packs to hold between their legs and under their arms.

    Correct Answer
    B. Cool the person gradually, so they don't go into shock.
    Explanation
    Cooling the person gradually is the correct answer because if a person with a heat-related emergency is cooled too quickly, it can cause them to go into shock. Gradual cooling helps to lower the body temperature in a controlled manner, preventing any sudden changes that could be harmful. This approach allows the body to adjust and recover more effectively.

    If you suspect someone has frost bite, you need to call 9-1-1 if:

    • A.

      Their hands are frozen all the way through.

    • B.

      It is combined with another medical condition like diabetes.

    • C.

      The person has lost one or more fingers or toes.

    • D.

      The frostbite is combined with severe hypothermia.

    • E.

      You never need to call 9-1-1 for frostbite, as it is not that serious.

    Correct Answer
    D. The frostbite is combined with severe hypothermia.
    Explanation
    If someone has frostbite combined with severe hypothermia, it is important to call 9-1-1 because this indicates a life-threatening situation. Severe hypothermia means that the person's body temperature has dropped dangerously low, which can lead to organ failure and death if not treated promptly. Frostbite combined with severe hypothermia requires immediate medical attention to prevent further complications and potentially save the person's life.

    Correct Answer
    D. Both B and C are correct.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Both B and C are correct. This is because if the person's Airway, Breathing and Circulation, and level of consciousness are bad, it is necessary to call 9-1-1 for immediate medical assistance. However, if these factors are good, it is appropriate to call Poison Control for guidance on how to handle the specific type of poisoning. It is important to note that not all types of poisoning can be treated in the same way and each one must be dealt with differently.
