    You are walking in the park when you hear somebody scream. As you look in the direction of the sound, you see a person lying on the ground about 30 feet away. What is the first thing you should do?

    • A.

      Tap and shout to see if the person is responsive

    • B.

      Quickly go to the injured person to see what is wrong

    • C.

      Stop and check the scene for safety

    Correct Answer
    C. Stop and check the scene for safety
    Explanation
    The first thing you should do is stop and check the scene for safety. This is important because rushing in without assessing the situation could put you in danger as well. By stopping and checking the scene, you can ensure that there are no immediate hazards or threats that could harm you or the injured person. Once you have determined that the scene is safe, you can then proceed to provide assistance to the person.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    There is a man lying on the ground and the scene is safe. You have approached, put on your personal protective equipment, and are kneeling beside him. What should you do now?

    • A.

      Call 911

    • B.

      Tap and shout to check for responsiveness

    • C.

      Open the airway

    Correct Answer
    B. Tap and shout to check for responsiveness
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the correct answer is to tap and shout to check for responsiveness. This is the first step in assessing the man's condition and determining if he is conscious or unconscious. By tapping and shouting, you are trying to elicit a response from him. If he responds, it indicates that he is conscious and may not require immediate medical attention. However, if he does not respond, it suggests that he is unconscious and further medical intervention is necessary.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You have checked the man for responsiveness by tapping and shouting, and he is unresponsive. What should you do next?

    • A.

      Send someone to call 911

    • B.

      Open the airway

    • C.

      Give two breaths

    Correct Answer
    A. Send someone to call 911
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to send someone to call 911. This is the most important step to take in an emergency situation where the person is unresponsive. Calling for professional medical help is crucial to ensure that the person receives the necessary medical attention as soon as possible.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    You have checked the man for responsiveness by tapping and shouting, and he is unresponsive. A bystander is calling 911. What is your next action?

    • A.

      Place him in the recovery position

    • B.

      Wait for EMS to arrive

    • C.

      Open the airway

    Correct Answer
    C. Open the airway
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to open the airway. Since the man is unresponsive, it is important to ensure that his airway is clear and open to prevent any obstruction that may be causing his unresponsiveness. This can be done by tilting the head back slightly and lifting the chin, which helps to align the airway and allow for easier breathing. Once the airway is open, it is then appropriate to wait for EMS to arrive and provide further medical assistance. Placing him in the recovery position can be considered if there are signs of breathing difficulties or if vomiting is suspected, but opening the airway takes priority in this situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You have opened the unresponsive man's airway. What is your next action?

    • A.

      Give two breaths

    • B.

      Do a finger sweep

    • C.

      Look, listen, and feel for breathing

    Correct Answer
    C. Look, listen, and feel for breathing
    Explanation
    After opening the unresponsive man's airway, the next action would be to look, listen, and feel for breathing. This is important to assess if the person is breathing or not. By observing the chest for rise and fall, listening for breath sounds, and feeling for air movement, it can be determined if the person is breathing on their own or not. This assessment will help guide further actions and interventions in providing appropriate care to the individual.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    You have just checked the unresponsive man for breathing. He is not breathing. What is your next action?

    • A.

      Give two breaths

    • B.

      Reposition the airway

    • C.

      Give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute, then 2 breaths

    Correct Answer
    A. Give two breaths
    Explanation
    After checking the unresponsive man for breathing and finding that he is not breathing, the next action would be to give two breaths. This is because in a situation where someone is not breathing, providing rescue breaths is crucial to deliver oxygen to the person's lungs and help maintain their oxygen levels. By giving two breaths, it helps to initiate the process of resuscitation and provides immediate assistance to the unresponsive individual.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Because the unresponsive man is not breathing, you give 2 breaths that make the chest rise. No signs of life are present. What is your next action?

    • A.

      Give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 80 per minute, followed by 2 breaths

    • B.

      Give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute, followed by 1 breath

    • C.

      Give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute, followed by 2 breaths

    Correct Answer
    C. Give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute, followed by 2 breaths
    Explanation
    After giving 2 breaths and finding no signs of life, the next action should be to give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100 per minute, followed by 2 breaths. This sequence of actions follows the guidelines for performing CPR on an unresponsive person who is not breathing. The chest compressions help to circulate the blood and oxygenate the body, while the breaths provide additional oxygen. The rate of 100 compressions per minute is recommended for effective CPR.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    You have called 911, opened the airway, and checked for breathing. The man is not breathing and shows no signs of life. You do not have personal protective equipment available and do not feel comfortable giving breaths. How will you perform effective CPR?

    • A.

      Use a piece of paper towel over the mouth to protect yourself

    • B.

      Give hands-only (compression-only) CPR

    • C.

      Wait for EMS personnel to arrive

    Correct Answer
    B. Give hands-only (compression-only) CPR
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the person does not have personal protective equipment and is uncomfortable giving breaths. The most appropriate action in this situation is to perform hands-only (compression-only) CPR. This means focusing solely on chest compressions, without providing rescue breaths. Hands-only CPR has been found to be equally effective in providing circulation to the vital organs and increasing the chances of survival. Waiting for EMS personnel to arrive without taking any action would result in a delay in providing life-saving measures. Using a piece of paper towel over the mouth is not a recommended method for protecting oneself and does not address the need for CPR.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What is the preferred method for performing 1-rescuer CPR on a child?

    • A.

      Use the heel of one hand to give chest compressions 1/3 to 1/2 the depth of the chest

    • B.

      Use the heel of one hand to give chest compressions 2 inches deep

    • C.

      Use the heel of one hand to give chest compressions as deep as you can

    Correct Answer
    A. Use the heel of one hand to give chest compressions 1/3 to 1/2 the depth of the chest
    Explanation
    The preferred method for performing 1-rescuer CPR on a child is to use the heel of one hand to give chest compressions 1/3 to 1/2 the depth of the chest. This depth range ensures that effective compressions are delivered without causing excessive damage to the child's chest.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    As you are eating in the lunchroom, a student stands up and cannot cough, speak or breathe. What is your next action?

    • A.

      Call 911, stand behind the person, and give abdominal thrusts

    • B.

      Call 911 and give 30 chest thrusts

    • C.

      Encourage the person to try harder to cough

    Correct Answer
    A. Call 911, stand behind the person, and give abdominal thrusts
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the person is experiencing choking and is unable to cough, speak, or breathe. This indicates a severe blockage of the airway, which requires immediate action. Calling 911 is necessary to get professional medical help on the way. Standing behind the person and giving abdominal thrusts, also known as the Heimlich maneuver, can help dislodge the obstruction and restore the person's ability to breathe. This action is crucial in saving the person's life and should be performed promptly.

    Choose the one item listed that you would NOT give to a person who is experiencing a diabetic emergency?

    • A.

      Sugar

    • B.

      Insulin

    • C.

      Juice

    Correct Answer
    B. Insulin
    Explanation
    Insulin is not given to a person experiencing a diabetic emergency because it is a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. In a diabetic emergency, the person's blood sugar levels are either too high (hyperglycemia) or too low (hypoglycemia). Giving insulin to a person with low blood sugar levels can cause their blood sugar levels to drop even further, worsening the emergency. Instead, in a diabetic emergency, it is recommended to provide sugar or juice to help raise the person's blood sugar levels.

    A student was running on a very hot and humid day. He staggers to you and tells you that he is dizzy, his legs are cramping, and he feels sick. He is sweating, and his skin feels hot and wet. What would you suspect?

    • A.

      Heat exhaustion

    • B.

      Heat stroke

    • C.

      Diabetic emergency

    Correct Answer
    A. Heat exhaustion
    Explanation
    Based on the symptoms described by the student, such as dizziness, leg cramps, feeling sick, sweating, and hot and wet skin, it is likely that the student is experiencing heat exhaustion. Heat exhaustion occurs when the body overheats due to exposure to high temperatures and humidity, leading to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. This can result in symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, dizziness, nausea, and excessive sweating. Heat stroke, on the other hand, is a more severe condition that occurs when the body's temperature regulation system fails, leading to a dangerously high body temperature. Diabetic emergency is not likely in this case, as the symptoms are more consistent with heat-related issues.

    You are performing abdominal thrusts on a conscious child. She suddenly becomes unconscious and you lower her to the ground. You call 911, tilt her head back, and look in her mouth. You don't see any obvious object that could be swept clear. You check for breathing and find that she is not breathing. You attempt two rescue breaths. No air will go in, so you reposition the head and try two breaths again. The air still will not go in. What steps of action come next?

    • A.

      Perform another sweep inside the mouth to remove the object

    • B.

      Provide 30 chest compressions in the center of the chest. Then, check the mouth; if clear, provide two rescue breaths.

    • C.

      Provide continuous chest compressions until help arrives

    Correct Answer
    B. Provide 30 chest compressions in the center of the chest. Then, check the mouth; if clear, provide two rescue breaths.
    Explanation
    After attempting two rescue breaths with no success, the next step is to provide 30 chest compressions in the center of the chest. This is done to try and restore circulation and provide oxygen to the child's body. After the chest compressions, the rescuer should then check the mouth again to see if there is any obvious object that can be removed. If the mouth is clear, two rescue breaths should be attempted again. If the air still does not go in, the rescuer should continue with continuous chest compressions until help arrives.
