Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is Brock's Law?

    • A.

      That Brockton is the city of Champion.

    • B.

      The presence of an AED does not ensure its use - the EMD does

    • C.

      The presence of an AED ensures its use

    • D.

      Someone should check the batteries... 

    Correct Answer
    B. The presence of an AED does not ensure its use - the EMD does
    Explanation
    Brock's Law refers to the fact that the presence of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) does not guarantee its use in an emergency situation. Instead, it is the responsibility of the Emergency Medical Dispatcher (EMD) to ensure that the AED is properly used. This means that simply having an AED available is not enough, as it requires the knowledge and action of the EMD to effectively utilize the device.

    What is the first law of chest pain?

    • A.

      Chest pain is bad.

    • B.

      "hurts to breathe" is not considered difficulty or abnormal breathing.

    • C.

      Aspirin should ALWAYS be given.

    Correct Answer
    B. "hurts to breathe" is not considered difficulty or abnormal breathing.
    Explanation
    The first law of chest pain states that "hurts to breathe" is not considered difficulty or abnormal breathing. This means that experiencing pain while breathing does not necessarily indicate a problem with breathing itself. It is important to differentiate between chest pain and difficulty in breathing as they can have different causes and require different treatments.

    What is the second law of chest pain?

    • A.

      A little chest pain may be as bad as a lot of chest pain. 

    • B.

      A little chest pain is probably nothing serious. 

    • C.

      Everything is fine. 

    • D.

      A little chest pain is not a true emergency. 

    Correct Answer
    A. A little chest pain may be as bad as a lot of chest pain. 
    Explanation
    The second law of chest pain states that a little chest pain may be as bad as a lot of chest pain. This means that even if the chest pain is mild or not severe, it should not be ignored as it could still indicate a serious underlying condition. It emphasizes the importance of seeking medical attention for any type of chest pain, regardless of its intensity.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If Aspirin is not available but Tylenol is, you should instruct the caller to have the patient chew 2 500mg tablets?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False. If Aspirin is not available, the caller should not instruct the patient to chew 2 500mg tablets of Tylenol. Tylenol is a brand name for acetaminophen, which is not the same as Aspirin. While both are pain relievers, they have different active ingredients and dosages. Instructing the patient to take a different medication without proper guidance from a healthcare professional can be potentially dangerous and may lead to adverse effects.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    1st party callers should not be asked to locate any aspirin outside of their own home.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is suggesting that 1st party callers, who are calling from their own home, should not be asked to find aspirin outside of their own home. This implies that it is not appropriate or reasonable to ask someone to search for medication in places that are not easily accessible to them. Therefore, the correct answer is true, indicating that 1st party callers should not be asked to locate aspirin outside of their own home.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Bufferin, Ecotrin, and Asperbuf are all recognized as the same as aspirin by the MPDS.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Bufferin, Ecotrin, and Asperbuf are all recognized as the same as aspirin by the MPDS. This means that according to the MPDS (Medical Products Data Sheet), these three medications are considered to be equivalent to aspirin. They likely contain the same active ingredient and have similar effects and uses. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    True heart attacks are uncommon in?

    • A.

      Females >45 and males >45

    • B.

      Females < 45  and males < 35

    • C.

      Elderly men

    • D.

      50-60 year old females

    Correct Answer
    B. Females < 45  and males < 35
    Explanation
    Heart attacks are more common in older individuals and in men compared to women. The answer "Females < 45 and males < 35" suggests that heart attacks are uncommon in younger individuals, specifically in females under the age of 45 and males under the age of 35. This is consistent with the general understanding that heart attacks are more prevalent in older age groups and in males.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A caller reports chest pain and stroke like symptoms, what protocol should be used?

    • A.

      10 Chest Pain but do not utilize the Aspirin diagnostic & instruction tool.

    • B.

      28 Stroke (CVA) 

    • C.

      19 Heart Problems / A.I.C.D.

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. 10 Chest Pain but do not utilize the Aspirin diagnostic & instruction tool.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "10 Chest Pain but do not utilize the Aspirin diagnostic & instruction tool." This protocol should be used because the caller is reporting chest pain, which is a symptom that could potentially indicate a heart problem. However, the caller also has stroke-like symptoms, which suggests the possibility of a stroke (CVA). In this case, the protocol for chest pain should be followed, but the Aspirin diagnostic & instruction tool should not be utilized because it may not be appropriate for a potential stroke situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Aspirin administration is recommended for a chest pain patient accompanied with Stroke like symptoms?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Aspirin administration is not recommended for a chest pain patient accompanied with stroke-like symptoms. Stroke-like symptoms could indicate a potential stroke, and in such cases, aspirin could worsen the condition by increasing the risk of bleeding. It is important to seek immediate medical attention in such situations rather than self-administering aspirin.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Chest pain due to trauma should be handled on protocol 30.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Chest pain due to trauma should be handled on protocol 30. This means that when a patient presents with chest pain as a result of trauma, medical professionals should follow the guidelines outlined in protocol 30 to assess and treat the patient. This protocol likely includes specific steps and procedures to ensure the proper management of chest pain in trauma cases. Therefore, the statement "Chest pain due to trauma should be handled on protocol 30" is true.
