    Correct Answer
    A. Control bleeding by applying direct pressure and raising the injured part, cover the wound with a sterile dressing and arrange to take the casualty to hospital.
    Explanation
    If you are bitten by a dog and the wound is serious, the correct course of action is to control bleeding by applying direct pressure and raising the injured part. This helps to minimize blood loss. Next, cover the wound with a sterile dressing to protect it from further contamination and infection. Finally, arrange to take the casualty to the hospital for further medical attention and treatment. Sucking out the blood is not recommended as it may introduce more bacteria into the wound. Waiting for help to arrive may delay necessary medical treatment.

    Correct Answer
    C. Wash the wound thoroughly with warm water and soap, pat the wound with clean gauze swab and cover with a sterile dressing. Advise the casualty to see doctor in case inoculation is needed
    Explanation
    It is important to wash the wound thoroughly with warm water and soap to clean it and prevent infection. Patting the wound with a clean gauze swab helps to dry it gently without causing further damage. Covering the wound with a sterile dressing helps to protect it from dirt and bacteria. Advising the casualty to see a doctor is important in case inoculation is needed to prevent diseases that can be transmitted by the dog.

    What should you do when you are stung by a bee?

    • A.

      Run 400 meters and stop.

    • B.

      Jump into a pool of water if any.

    Correct Answer
    C. Apply constant firm pressure, scrape or brush the sting off with your fingernail or blunt edge of knife.
    Explanation
    When stung by a bee, it is important to apply constant firm pressure and scrape or brush the sting off with your fingernail or blunt edge of a knife. This helps to remove the stinger and venom sac from the skin, reducing the amount of venom injected into the body. Running or jumping into a pool of water is not recommended as it may cause the venom to spread faster.

    How should you remove ticks from your body?

    • A.

      Use a fine point tweezer and pull it out by using the “to and fro” action.

    • B.

      Use a needle and pin it to remove and apply some medicine.

    • C.

      Wash it with plenty of water and get medical treatment directly.

    Correct Answer
    A. Use a fine point tweezer and pull it out by using the “to and fro” action.
    Explanation
    Using a fine point tweezer and pulling the tick out with a "to and fro" action is the correct way to remove ticks from the body. This method ensures that the tick is completely removed, including the mouthparts which can remain embedded in the skin if not removed properly. It is important to use a tweezer with a fine point to grasp the tick as close to the skin as possible and avoid squeezing or crushing the tick. The "to and fro" action helps to loosen the tick's grip on the skin, making it easier to remove without leaving any parts behind.

    • B.

      Pour copious amount of sand over the injury to incapacitate stinging cells that have not yet released venom.

    • C.

    Explanation
    When you are stung by a jellyfish, pouring a copious amount of vinegar or sea water over the injury is recommended. This helps to incapacitate the stinging cells that have not yet released venom, reducing the amount of venom that enters the body. Additionally, using talcum powder to brush off any remaining stinging cells can further minimize the effects of the sting.

    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests that in the case of a puncture wound caused by a marine creature such as a stonefish, the first step is to gently pull out any protruding spines. Then, the injured part should be placed in water as hot as the casualty can bear for at least 30 minutes. Finally, the casualty should be sent to the hospital, where any remaining spines in the skin may be removed. This approach aims to alleviate pain, reduce the risk of infection, and ensure proper medical treatment for the injury.

    We should bandage the snake bite and cover the wound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Bandaging a snake bite is not recommended as it can restrict blood flow and potentially worsen the situation.

Covering the wound is also not recommended as it can trap bacteria and increase the risk of infection.

    • C.

      Suck out the blood to remove the venom.

    Correct Answer
    A. Wash the wound and lightly compress the limb above the wound with a roller bandage.
    Explanation
    When your friend is bitten by a snake, the correct course of action is to wash the wound to remove any dirt or bacteria that may be present. Additionally, lightly compressing the limb above the wound with a roller bandage can help slow the spread of venom through the lymphatic system. This can buy some time until medical help arrives. Cutting the wound and letting the blood flow out is not recommended as it can increase the risk of infection. Sucking out the blood to remove the venom is also not recommended as it can introduce bacteria into the wound and potentially harm the person doing the sucking.

    Correct Answer
    B. Firmly bandage the part above the wound which is nearer to the heart.
    Explanation
    When treating a snake bite, it is important to firmly bandage the part above the wound which is nearer to the heart. This helps to slow down the spread of venom through the lymphatic system. Sucking out the blood is not recommended as it may cause further damage and increase the risk of infection. Cutting the wound and letting the blood out is also not recommended as it can lead to more bleeding and increase the risk of infection. Seeking medical attention is crucial after applying the bandage.
