Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What do you do if you find an adult passed out on the floor?

    • A.

      Make sure the scene is safe for you to help

    • B.

      Get the person flat on his/her back

    • C.

      Tap and shout “Are you okay?”

    • D.

      If the person doesn’t respond, yell for help and have someone call 911 or other emergency number; you make the call if you’re alone

    • E.

      All of the Above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the Above
    Explanation
    If you find an adult passed out on the floor, the first step is to ensure your own safety by making sure the scene is safe for you to help. Then, you should get the person flat on their back to ensure proper airway and circulation. Next, tap and shout "Are you okay?" to try and elicit a response. If the person does not respond, it is important to yell for help and have someone call 911 or another emergency number. If you are alone, you should make the call yourself. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the Above."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Once 911 or other emergency number has been called, you tilt the victim’s head back and discover he/she isn’t breathing, what do you do next?

    • A.

      Give 2 breaths that make the chest rise

    • B.

      Tap and shout “Are you okay?”

    • C.

      Leave the victim and see if you can find out what happened to him/her

    • D.

      Wait for someone else to come along and do something

    Correct Answer
    A. Give 2 breaths that make the chest rise
    Explanation
    After discovering that the victim is not breathing, the immediate next step would be to give 2 breaths that make the chest rise. This is a crucial step in CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) to provide oxygen to the victim's lungs and initiate the resuscitation process. By tilting the victim's head back, it helps open the airway, and giving breaths helps deliver oxygen to the lungs, potentially reviving the victim. It is important to perform this step promptly while waiting for further medical assistance to arrive.

  • 3. 

    If a victim does not respond after you give rescue breaths, what are the next steps in CPR?

    • A.

      Move or remove clothes from the chest that will get in the way of pushing on the chest

    • B.

      Push hard and fast on the chest 30 times, making sure you let the chest come back to normal position after each push

    • C.

      Repeat sets of 30 chest pushes and 2 breaths until the victim moves or trained help takes over

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    After giving rescue breaths and the victim does not respond, the next steps in CPR include moving or removing clothes from the chest that may obstruct chest compressions, pushing hard and fast on the chest 30 times while allowing the chest to return to its normal position after each push, and repeating sets of 30 chest compressions and 2 breaths until the victim shows signs of movement or trained help arrives. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of the above."

    When someone older than 1 year of age is choking, the best way to help them is to:

    • A.

      Ask if he is choking and if it is alright for you to help and then use the Heimlich Maneuver

    • B.

      Ask if he is choking and slap him on the back repeatedly

    • C.

      Tell him to remain calm and lean over a chair while you call 911

    • D.

      Both B and C are correct

    Correct Answer
    A. Ask if he is choking and if it is alright for you to help and then use the Heimlich Maneuver
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to ask if the person is choking and if it is alright for you to help, and then use the Heimlich Maneuver. This is the best way to help someone older than 1 year of age who is choking. Asking if the person is choking ensures that they are indeed in need of assistance, and obtaining their consent to help respects their autonomy. The Heimlich Maneuver is an effective technique for clearing a blocked airway and can save the person's life.

    You are performing CPR on an infant when a second rescuer appears. What is the next step in management?

    • A.

      Immediately transport the patient

    • B.

      Wait until exhausted, then switch

    • C.

      Have the second rescuer help with CPR, to minimize fatigue

    • D.

      Have the second rescuer begin ventilations; ratio 30:2

    Correct Answer
    C. Have the second rescuer help with CPR, to minimize fatigue
    Explanation
    When performing CPR on an infant, it is important to minimize fatigue to maintain effective chest compressions. Having a second rescuer help with CPR allows for alternating compressions, reducing fatigue and ensuring continuous chest compressions. This is crucial in providing adequate circulation to the infant's vital organs. Therefore, the next step in management when a second rescuer appears is to have them assist with CPR to minimize fatigue.

    You are treating a pediatric cardiac arrest patient. Where do you place the AED pads on an infant?

    • A.

      Chest and back

    • B.

      Do not use an AED on an infant

    • C.

      Upper chest and mid abdomen

    • D.

      Wherever they fit

    Correct Answer
    A. Chest and back
    Explanation
    In pediatric cardiac arrest, the correct placement of AED pads on an infant is on the chest and back. This is because the size and anatomy of an infant's chest require the pads to be placed in these locations to ensure proper delivery of the electrical shock. Placing the pads on the chest and back allows for effective defibrillation and increases the chances of restoring a normal heart rhythm in the infant.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When performing CPR you check for breathing. How long should this check last?

    • A.

      Do not check for breathing, continue chest compressions

    • B.

      2 seconds 

    • C.

      5 seconds

    • D.

      No longer than 10 seconds

    Correct Answer
    D. No longer than 10 seconds
    Explanation
    When performing CPR, it is important to prioritize chest compressions over checking for breathing. This is because chest compressions help circulate oxygenated blood to vital organs. Checking for breathing should not take longer than 10 seconds to ensure that chest compressions are not interrupted for an extended period. Therefore, the correct answer is "No longer than 10 seconds."

    You attempt to deliver a rescue breath to an unconscious adult. The breath does not go in. What is the next step in managing this case?

    • A.

      Perform abdominal thrusts

    • B.

      Begin CPR

    • C.

      Go call 911

    • D.

      Repeat the head tilt/chin lift maneuver and attempt the breath again

    Correct Answer
    D. Repeat the head tilt/chin lift maneuver and attempt the breath again
    Explanation
    If the rescue breath does not go in when attempting to deliver it to an unconscious adult, the next step in managing this case is to repeat the head tilt/chin lift maneuver and attempt the breath again. This is because the breath may not have been successful due to an obstruction in the airway, and by repeating the head tilt/chin lift maneuver, it helps to open up the airway and ensure proper delivery of the breath.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    You come upon an unconscious victim with a pulse. They do not appear to be breathing. You are unable to deliver the first breath. What is the next step?

    • A.

      Begin CPR

    • B.

      Repeat the head tilt/chin lift maneuver and attempt the breath again

    • C.

      Abdominal thrusts

    • D.

      Heimlich maneuver

    Correct Answer
    B. Repeat the head tilt/chin lift maneuver and attempt the breath again
    Explanation
    If the victim is unconscious and not breathing, the first step is to check for a pulse. If a pulse is present, it indicates that the victim's heart is still beating, but they are not breathing. In this case, the next step would be to repeat the head tilt/chin lift maneuver and attempt to deliver a breath again. This step is important as it helps to open the airway and ensure that the breath can be successfully delivered to the victim. If the breath is still unable to be delivered, CPR should be initiated to provide chest compressions and continue life-saving measures.

    You are first on scene and the victim is unresponsive, pulseless, and has vomited. You do not feel comfortable performing mouth-to-mouth ventilation. What is the best approach?

    • A.

      Wipe off the face or cover with a shirt

    • B.

      Compression only CPR

    • C.

      Go and get help

    • D.

      Do not initiate resuscitation

    Correct Answer
    B. Compression only CPR
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the best approach is to perform compression-only CPR. This involves providing chest compressions at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute without giving mouth-to-mouth ventilation. This approach is recommended when the rescuer is untrained or uncomfortable with performing mouth-to-mouth ventilation. By focusing on chest compressions, the rescuer can still provide vital circulation to the victim's brain and vital organs, increasing the chances of survival until professional help arrives.
