    The most common cause injury to ambulance personnal is?

    • A.

      Muscular skeletal

    • B.

      Infections

    • C.

      Ill health

    • D.

      Mental health

    Correct Answer
    A. Muscular skeletal
    Explanation
    The most common cause of injury to ambulance personnel is muscular skeletal issues. This can include strains, sprains, and other injuries related to lifting and moving patients. Ambulance personnel often have to lift heavy equipment and patients, which puts a significant strain on their muscles and skeletal system. These injuries can be debilitating and can lead to long-term health issues if not properly addressed and treated.

    The best practice for managing a patient who falls while you are assisting with walking is to?

    • A.

      Allow the patient to slide down your body to the floor

    • B.

      Support the patient under the arms and lower to the ground

    • C.

      Turn in to the face the patient and help them to the ground

    • D.

      Step away from the patient and allow them to fall

    Correct Answer
    A. Allow the patient to slide down your body to the floor
    Explanation
    When a patient falls while you are assisting with walking, the best practice is to allow the patient to slide down your body to the floor. This technique helps to control the descent and prevent further injury to the patient. By supporting the patient's weight and guiding them down, you can ensure a safer and more controlled fall. It is important to maintain close contact with the patient to provide support and minimize the risk of injury.

    When lifting a good technique is considered to?

    • A.

      Keep a straight back

    • B.

      Keep feet together

    • C.

      Hold objects at arms length

    • D.

      Bend from the waist

    Correct Answer
    A. Keep a straight back
    Explanation
    When lifting, it is important to keep a straight back to maintain proper alignment and minimize the risk of injury. This helps distribute the weight evenly and prevents strain on the back muscles. Keeping a straight back also ensures that the lifting force is generated from the legs rather than the back, which is a safer and more efficient technique.

    The order of the 4 P’s for Lifting are?

    • A.

      Plan - Prepare - Position - Perform

    • B.

      Perform - Plan - Prepare - Position

    • C.

      Prepare - Position - Perform - Plan

    • D.

      Plan - Position - Prepare - Perform

    Correct Answer
    A. Plan - Prepare - Position - Perform
    Explanation
    The correct order of the 4 P's for Lifting is Plan - Prepare - Position - Perform. This order suggests that before performing any lifting task, it is important to have a plan in place, which includes assessing the load, identifying any potential risks, and determining the best lifting technique. Once the plan is established, the next step is to prepare by warming up, wearing appropriate protective gear, and ensuring clear communication with any other individuals involved. After preparation, the next step is to position oneself correctly in relation to the load, maintaining a stable base and using proper body mechanics. Finally, the lifting task can be performed using the planned technique and maintaining proper form throughout.

    The (?) is often used for patients with respiratory illness, lung or heart diseases or suffering from dyspnoea.

    • A.

      Upright position

    • B.

      Fowler position

    • C.

      Trendelenburg position

    • D.

      Recumbent position

    • E.

      Lower Limbs Raised

    • F.

      Semi- Recumbent position

    • G.

      Recovery position

    Correct Answer
    A. Upright position
    Explanation
    The upright position is often used for patients with respiratory illness, lung or heart diseases, or suffering from dyspnoea because it helps to improve lung expansion and oxygenation. This position allows the diaphragm to descend more easily, allowing for better ventilation of the lungs. It also helps to reduce the workload on the heart by promoting venous return and reducing the risk of fluid accumulation in the lungs. Additionally, the upright position can help to relieve symptoms such as shortness of breath and coughing by allowing gravity to assist in clearing the airways.

    Which position relaxes tension for the abdominal muscles?

    • A.

      Fowler position

    • B.

      Trendelenburg position

    • C.

      Recumbent position

    • D.

      Lower limbs raised position

    • E.

      Semi- Recumbent position

    • F.

      Recovery position

    Correct Answer
    A. Fowler position
    Explanation
    The Fowler position is the correct answer because it is a sitting position with the head of the bed elevated between 45 and 60 degrees. This position helps to relax tension in the abdominal muscles by allowing gravity to assist in the downward movement of the abdominal contents. It is commonly used in patients with respiratory difficulties or for postoperative patients to improve lung expansion and facilitate breathing.

    Which position should you use for unconscious patients to allow postural drainage and provent the tongue obstructing the airway?

    • A.

      Recovery position

    • B.

      Upright position

    • C.

      Fowler position

    • E.

      Recumbent position

    • F.

      Lower limbs raised

    • G.

      Semi- recumbent position

    Correct Answer
    A. Recovery position
    Explanation
    The recovery position should be used for unconscious patients to allow postural drainage and prevent the tongue from obstructing the airway. This position involves placing the patient on their side with their head tilted back and their chin lifted. This helps to keep the airway open and allows any fluids or secretions to drain out of the mouth. It also helps to prevent the tongue from falling back and blocking the airway.
