Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The king airway is to be used in what type of patients?

    • A.

      Patients who are unsresponsive.

    • B.

      Patients who are unresponsive with an intact gag reflex.

    • C.

      Patients who are Apniec without an intact gag reflex

    • D.

      Any one over 5 ft tall

    Correct Answer
    C. Patients who are Apniec without an intact gag reflex
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Patients who are Apniec without an intact gag reflex." The king airway is a type of advanced airway device that is used in patients who are experiencing apnea (cessation of breathing) and do not have an intact gag reflex. This device helps to maintain an open airway and facilitate ventilation in these patients.

  • 2. 

    The King airway needs to be lubricated- what area is to be avoided

    • A.

      Proximal cuff

    • B.

      Distal cuff

    • C.

      Ventilation outlets

    • D.

      It all needs to be lubricated to ensure proper placement

    Correct Answer
    C. Ventilation outlets
    Explanation
    The ventilation outlets should be avoided when lubricating the King airway.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Careful attention to ensure the proper placement is critical why?

    • A.

      Intratracheal placement may cause a complete airway obstruction.

    • B.

      There are no complications

    • C.

      The patient may have injested a caustic substance

    • D.

      To be extra sure

    Correct Answer
    A. Intratracheal placement may cause a complete airway obstruction.
    Explanation
    Careful attention to ensure the proper placement is critical because intratracheal placement can lead to a complete airway obstruction. This means that the airway can become completely blocked, preventing the patient from breathing properly. This can be a life-threatening situation and requires immediate intervention. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that the placement is correct to avoid this complication and ensure the patient's safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How far should the tube be advanced before the cuffs are inflated?

    • A.

      To where it looks right

    • B.

      To the mid section of the tube then you may advance or retract untill you get good chest rise.

    • C.

      Doesent matter as long as you get good chest rise

    • D.

      Untill the base of the connector is alighned with the teeth or gums.

    Correct Answer
    D. Untill the base of the connector is alighned with the teeth or gums.
    Explanation
    The tube should be advanced until the base of the connector is aligned with the teeth or gums. This is important because it ensures that the tube is inserted to the correct depth and allows for proper inflation of the cuffs. Aligning the base of the connector with the teeth or gums helps to ensure that the tube is in the correct position to provide effective ventilation and chest rise.

  • 5. 

    The following are contraindications to the king airway except.

    • A.

      Responsive patients with an intact gag reflex.

    • B.

      Patients with known esophageal disease.

    • C.

      Patients who have ingested caustic substances.

    • D.

      Patients under 4 feet tall

    • E.

      Patients under 5 feet tall

    Correct Answer
    E. Patients under 5 feet tall
    Explanation
    Patients under 5 feet tall is not a contraindication to the king airway. The king airway is a device used for establishing and maintaining a patent airway during emergency situations. It is not dependent on the patient's height and can be used in patients of any height. The other options listed are contraindications to the king airway. Responsive patients with an intact gag reflex may not require an advanced airway intervention. Patients with known esophageal disease may have an increased risk of complications. Patients who have ingested caustic substances may have airway swelling and should be managed differently.

  • 6. 

    There are 3 sizes of King airways appropriate for use by EMS they are...

    • A.

      Size 1 2 and 3

    • B.

      Size 2 3 and 4

    • C.

      Size 3 4 and 5

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Size 3 4 and 5
    Explanation
    The correct answer is size 3, 4, and 5. These three sizes of King airways are appropriate for use by EMS (Emergency Medical Services). The sizes mentioned in the answer are the ones that are suitable for EMS purposes, while the other options do not include the correct combination of sizes.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Where would you find the amount of air required to inflate the cuff on a king airway?

    • A.

      On the tube itself

    • B.

      On the inflation port

    • C.

      Its always 100cc like the combi-tube

    • D.

      Untill it looks secure

    Correct Answer
    A. On the tube itself
    Explanation
    The amount of air required to inflate the cuff on a king airway can be found on the tube itself. This means that the information about the required amount of air is typically printed or marked directly on the tube of the king airway device.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    To ensure proper placement we must

    • A.

      Listen for positive chest sounds

    • B.

      Good chest rise

    • C.

      Have no abdominal sounds

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    To ensure proper placement, it is necessary to listen for positive chest sounds, which indicate that the tube is correctly inserted into the trachea. Additionally, good chest rise is important as it indicates that the air is entering the lungs properly. Abdominal sounds should be absent, as they would indicate that the tube is incorrectly placed in the esophagus instead of the trachea. Therefore, all of the above factors need to be considered to ensure proper placement.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Before inserting the king airway you

    • A.

      Test the cuff inflation system for air leak

    • B.

      Test the cuff inflation system for air leak then apply water soluable lubricant to the distal cuff

    • C.

      Test the cuff inflation system for air leak and lubricare the whole thing

    • D.

      Make sure the pt is over 3ft tall

    Correct Answer
    B. Test the cuff inflation system for air leak then apply water soluable lubricant to the distal cuff
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to test the cuff inflation system for air leak then apply water soluble lubricant to the distal cuff. This sequence of actions ensures that the cuff inflation system is functioning properly before inserting the king airway. Testing for air leaks helps to ensure that the cuff will effectively seal the airway, and applying lubricant to the distal cuff helps to ease the insertion process and minimize discomfort for the patient.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Before removing the king airway you should-

    • A.

      Suction above cuffs in the oral cavity if indicated

    • B.

      Fully deflate both cuffs before removal of the KingLT-D device

    • C.

      Answer A only

    • D.

      Both A&B

    Correct Answer
    D. Both A&B
    Explanation
    Before removing the King airway, it is important to suction above the cuffs in the oral cavity if indicated. This is necessary to clear any secretions or obstructions that may be present and could potentially cause airway obstruction or complications during removal. Additionally, fully deflating both cuffs before removing the KingLT-D device is necessary to ensure a smooth and safe removal process without causing any damage or discomfort to the patient. Therefore, the correct answer is both A and B.
