      Nasuea

      Fatigue

      Profuse sweating

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    When someone goes into shock, their body's response to a sudden drop in blood pressure causes various symptoms. Nausea can occur due to decreased blood flow to the digestive system. Fatigue is a common symptom as the body redirects blood to vital organs, causing a decrease in energy levels. Profuse sweating is another response as the body tries to regulate its temperature. Therefore, all of the above symptoms can be experienced when someone goes into shock.

      Lying flat with legs and feet flat on the floor

    Correct Answer
    B. Lying flat with legs elevated approximately 8-12 inches.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is lying flat with legs elevated approximately 8-12 inches. This position is known as the shock position and is used to improve blood flow to vital organs in cases of shock or low blood pressure. Elevating the legs helps to increase venous return to the heart and improve circulation.

    • A.

    • B.

      Keep the person still

      Immobilize the head

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Do not move the person
    B. Keep the person still
    D. Immobilize the head
    Explanation
    If you have reason to believe an injured party may have a spinal injury, it is important not to move the person as any unnecessary movement can potentially worsen the injury. Keeping the person still helps to prevent further damage to the spine. Immobilizing the head is also crucial as it helps to stabilize the neck and prevent any potential movement that could cause harm to the spinal cord. Raising their legs, however, is not recommended as it can potentially worsen a spinal injury.

    • A.

      High body temperature

    • B.

      Flushed skin

      Rapid breathing

    • D.

      Headache

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. High body temperature
    B. Flushed skin
    C. Rapid breathing
    D. Headache
    Explanation
    The signs of heat stroke include a high body temperature, flushed skin, rapid breathing, and headache. These symptoms are commonly associated with heat stroke and indicate that the body is overheating. High body temperature is a key indicator of heat stroke, as the body's temperature regulation system is overwhelmed. Flushed skin occurs due to the body's attempt to cool down by dilating blood vessels near the skin's surface. Rapid breathing helps the body expel heat and regulate its temperature. Headache can be a result of the body's dehydration and stress from overheating.

    Explanation
    R.I.C.E. stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevate. This acronym is commonly used in first aid to treat acute injuries such as sprains, strains, or bruises. Rest refers to resting the injured area to prevent further damage. Ice is used to reduce swelling and pain by applying cold therapy. Compression involves applying pressure to the injured area to reduce swelling. Elevate means keeping the injured area elevated above the heart level to minimize swelling. Together, these steps help promote healing and alleviate symptoms of acute injuries.
