Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is a closed abdominal injury?

    • A.

      Penetrating wounds and penetrating organs

    • B.

      Object stuck in the chest

    • C.

      Direct blow from a blunt object.

    • D.

      Falling off a chair

    Correct Answer
    C. Direct blow from a blunt object.
    Explanation
    A closed abdominal injury refers to an injury that occurs without any external penetration or open wound. It is typically caused by a direct blow from a blunt object to the abdomen. This can result in various internal injuries such as organ damage, internal bleeding, or fractures. The other options mentioned in the question, such as penetrating wounds or objects stuck in the chest, are not considered closed abdominal injuries as they involve external penetration. Falling off a chair is also unrelated to closed abdominal injuries.

    • D.

      Do not touch and leave the wound open.

    Correct Answer
    A. Cover the protruding organs with moist, clean, dressing.
    Explanation
    In the case of an open abdominal injury, it is important to cover the protruding organs with a moist, clean dressing. This helps to protect the organs from further contamination and infection. Placing the person in a position with their legs pulled towards their chest can help to relieve pressure on the abdomen and reduce the risk of further injury. Covering the wound with a dry paper towel or leaving it open can increase the risk of infection and further damage to the organs.

    • D.

      The chest wall is penetrated by some type of object and the skin is broken.

    Correct Answer
    D. The chest wall is penetrated by some type of object and the skin is broken.
    Explanation
    An open chest wound refers to a situation where the chest wall is penetrated by some type of object and the skin is broken. This means that something has punctured through the chest wall, creating an opening or wound. The other options mentioned, such as broken ribs or bruised and tender chest, do not specifically indicate an open chest wound.

    Which of the following are symptoms to look for in a chest wound?

    • A.

      Blood bubbling out of the chest wound.

      Pain in the hip and back.

    • C.

      Air coming in and out of the wound.

    • D.

      Blood coming out of the head.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Blood bubbling out of the chest wound.
    C. Air coming in and out of the wound.
    Explanation
    Symptoms to look for in a chest wound include blood bubbling out of the chest wound and air coming in and out of the wound. These symptoms indicate the presence of a pneumothorax, which is a potentially life-threatening condition where air accumulates in the pleural space. This can cause the lung to collapse and lead to difficulty in breathing. Therefore, recognizing these symptoms is crucial in order to provide appropriate medical intervention and prevent further complications.

    True of False: Keep the victim of a pelvic injury as still as possible. 

    • A.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In cases of a pelvic injury, it is important to keep the victim as still as possible. Moving the victim can worsen the injury and cause further damage. By keeping them still, it helps to prevent any additional trauma to the pelvic region and reduces the risk of internal bleeding or organ damage. Immobilizing the victim also helps to alleviate pain and discomfort. Therefore, it is crucial to keep the victim of a pelvic injury as still as possible.
