    C&B Marine Safety Resource Manual, April

  • 2. 

    Shock refers to circulatory failure, which happens when oxygenated blood is not provided in sufficient amounts for every body part

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Shock is a condition where there is a failure in the circulatory system, leading to inadequate supply of oxygenated blood to all parts of the body. This can occur due to various reasons such as severe bleeding, heart attack, or infection. In shock, the body's vital organs do not receive enough oxygen and nutrients, which can be life-threatening. Therefore, the statement "Shock refers to circulatory failure, which happens when oxygenated blood is not provided in sufficient amounts for every body part" is true.

    Signs of shock can include

    • A.

      Anxiety and restlessness

    • B.

      Pale, cold and clammy skin

    • C.

      Breathing and pulse rapid

    • D.

      Unresponsiveness

    • E.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All the above
    Explanation
    The given answer is correct because all of the listed signs are commonly associated with shock. Anxiety and restlessness can be caused by the body's response to low blood flow and oxygen levels. Pale, cold, and clammy skin is a result of decreased blood flow to the skin. Rapid breathing and pulse are the body's attempt to compensate for decreased blood flow. Unresponsiveness can occur in severe cases of shock. Therefore, all of the above signs can be indicative of shock.

    When treating for shock, lay the victim on their back

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When treating for shock, it is important to lay the victim on their back. This position helps to improve blood flow to the brain and vital organs, as it allows for better circulation. Lying on the back also makes it easier to monitor the victim's breathing and provide necessary medical assistance. Additionally, it helps prevent further injury or strain on the body. Thus, laying the victim on their back is the correct approach when treating for shock.

    When responding to an injured person, it is a best practice to treat them for shock

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Treating an injured person for shock is a best practice because shock is a life-threatening condition that can occur as a result of severe injury or trauma. Shock is characterized by a decrease in blood flow to vital organs, which can lead to organ failure and death if not promptly treated. Treating for shock typically involves keeping the person lying down, elevating their legs, covering them with a blanket to maintain body temperature, and seeking immediate medical attention. By providing these interventions, the person's chances of survival and recovery are significantly increased.

    As long as there is no evidence of head or back injury, raise the shock victims legs 8-12 inches to allow blood to drain from the legs to the heart

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Raising the legs of a shock victim 8-12 inches is a recommended first aid technique. By elevating the legs, blood is encouraged to flow back towards the heart, increasing blood circulation and helping to stabilize the person's condition. This method is effective as long as there is no evidence of head or back injury, which could potentially worsen with leg elevation. Therefore, the statement is true.

    By placing blankets under and over a shock victim, you can prevent the loss of body heat

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    By placing blankets under and over a shock victim, you can prevent the loss of body heat. This is because the blankets act as insulation, trapping the body heat and preventing it from escaping into the surrounding environment. By keeping the body warm, it helps to prevent further complications and promotes the body's ability to recover from shock.
