A gathering of questions pertaining to all of the important numbers you need to be aware of.

• 1.

### Minimum systolic B.P. for administration of nitroglycerin.

• A.

100

• B.

120

• C.

90

• D.

140

• E.

110

B. 120
Explanation
The minimum systolic blood pressure required for the administration of nitroglycerin is 120. Nitroglycerin is a medication used to treat angina (chest pain) by relaxing and widening blood vessels, which helps to increase blood flow and oxygen to the heart. It is typically given when the systolic blood pressure is above 120 to ensure that the medication is effective and does not cause a sudden drop in blood pressure.

### What is the correct rate range for normal adult respirations?

• A.

10-28

• B.

12-24

• C.

12-20

• D.

8-28

C. 12-20
Explanation
The correct rate range for normal adult respirations is 12-20 breaths per minute. This range indicates the average number of breaths an adult should take in one minute for proper respiration. A rate below or above this range may indicate a respiratory problem or abnormality.

### What is the reading on a pressure regulator, in PSI, of a full oxygen tank?

• A.

500

• B.

1000

• C.

2000

• D.

15-25

C. 2000
Explanation
The reading on a pressure regulator of a full oxygen tank is 2000 PSI. This indicates the amount of pressure inside the tank, which is at its maximum capacity.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### An adult sized BVM will issue a volume of approximately___ millimeters

• A.

500

• B.

1000

• C.

1200

• D.

1600

• E.

2000

D. 1600
Explanation
An adult-sized BVM (Bag Valve Mask) is designed to deliver a specific volume of air or oxygen to a patient during resuscitation or ventilation. This volume is typically around 1600 milliliters, which is the correct answer. BVMs are commonly used in emergency situations to provide temporary breathing support until more advanced interventions can be performed. The volume delivered by the BVM is important to ensure adequate oxygenation and ventilation of the patient's lungs.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### When suctioning the adult airway, it should be done for no longer than___ seconds in a row.

• A.

30

• B.

15

• C.

25

• D.

10

• E.

5

B. 15
Explanation
When suctioning the adult airway, it should be done for no longer than 15 seconds in a row. This is because prolonged suctioning can lead to hypoxia and damage to the airway tissues. Limiting the suction time helps to prevent these complications while effectively removing secretions and maintaining adequate oxygenation.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### A flow restricted, oxygen powered ventilatory device should deliver a peak flow of 100% oxygen at ___ LPM, with an inspiratory pressure relief valve set at ___ centimeters of water.

• A.

2,5

• B.

18,30

• C.

500,1000

• D.

25,100

• E.

40,60

E. 40,60
Explanation
A flow restricted, oxygen powered ventilatory device should deliver a peak flow of 100% oxygen at 40 LPM, with an inspiratory pressure relief valve set at 60 centimeters of water.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### A suction device should deliver at least ___ mmHg of vacuum when the tubing is clamped.

• A.

300

• B.

600

• C.

-300

• D.

-600

• E.

15

A. 300
Explanation
Remember...vacuum is NEGATIVE pressure. If it asks for PRESSURE, then you give - 300. If it asks for the VACUUM amount, then you just give the amount, 300.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### Upon reassessment, vital signs should be checked every __ minutes for a stable patient and every __ minutes for an unstable patient.

• A.

15,2

• B.

5,15

• C.

15,5

• D.

10,5

C. 15,5
Explanation
Upon reassessment, vital signs should be checked every 15 minutes for a stable patient and every 5 minutes for an unstable patient. This frequency allows healthcare professionals to closely monitor the condition of unstable patients who may experience rapid changes in their vital signs. Stable patients, on the other hand, require less frequent monitoring as their condition is not expected to change significantly in a short period of time.

• 9.

### Barring other circumstances, such as emancipation, armed forces enlistment, etc...what is the minimum age for an individual to be considered a legal adult?

• A.

17

• B.

18

• C.

16

• D.

21

B. 18
Explanation
The minimum age for an individual to be considered a legal adult is 18. This is the age at which a person is generally recognized as having the legal rights and responsibilities of an adult, such as voting, signing contracts, and serving on a jury. Barring any exceptional circumstances like emancipation or joining the armed forces, individuals are typically considered minors until they reach the age of 18.

### You may refuse to grant an RMA and also ask law enforcement to forcibly restrain and transport a patient if their GCS is below:

• A.

12

• B.

15

• C.

14

• D.

5

B. 15
Explanation
If a patient's Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) is below 15, it indicates that their level of consciousness is impaired. The GCS measures eye opening, verbal response, and motor response, with a score of 15 indicating normal functioning. If the score is below 15, it suggests a potential medical emergency, and the patient may require immediate medical intervention. In such cases, it is appropriate to refuse to grant a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) and involve law enforcement to ensure the patient's safety and transport them to a healthcare facility for further evaluation and treatment.
