First Aid Annual Review - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Welcome to the first aid annual review course.  All of you have had first-aid one or more times as a condition of employment with Dungarvin.  This course will be best used to remind you of all the things you already know to help those in your care in an emergency situation. Note: This is not an American Red Cross certified course, just a Dungarvin based review to meet our conditions of employment.There are several reasons or barriers that people won't act in an emergency.  They include:
    • Being afraid of doing something wrong
    • Not being sure of what the emergency is
    • Figuring that someone else will take action
    • Concern one may get a disease
    • Not being sure of when to call 911/EMS
    • Worry that one might be sued.
    In regards to being sued one must remember the rules of THE GOOD SAMARITAN LAW.
    • You must ask permission.
    • Move a person only if they are in danger of being hurt.
    • Always call 911
    • Continue to give care until someone else arrives to assist or take over.
    • If a person says they don't want care, you DO NOT GIVE CARE but still call 911
    • If a person goes unconscious, even if they have previously denied care when conscious, you may give care as it is presumed you would.
    There are only four reasons one would stop giving care in any emergent situation.
    • Someone starts breathing or some other sign notates they are ok.
    • Another person takes over for you.
    • You can't continue because you’re exhausted.
    • The environment becomes unsafe for you, them or both of you.
    The American Red Cross reminds you to Check/Call/Care
    • Check the scene to be sure it is safe
    • Call the EMS system (911)
    • Care for the individual.
    Remember to ask yourself the following questions when you find someone in need of care.
    • Is there danger?
    • What happened?
    • What is wrong?
    • Can anyone else help?
    When you check a conscious person ask them
    • What Happened?
    • What is their pain or discomfort?
    • Do they have any allergies?
    • Any medical conditions or medications?
    Be sure to check them from head to toe. 

  • 2. 

    If someone is choking please follow these steps:
    • Ask if you can assist.
    • If they agree, go behind them with your arm covering the front of the body so they don't fall.
    • Keep your legs slightly bent to assure balance.
    • Do 5 back blows between their shoulder blades with your palm.
    • If that doesn't stop the choking do abdominal thrusts.
    • Stand behind them, locate the navel with two fingers, ball into a fist, grab the fist with your other hand and do upward thrusts to the abdomen.

    First Aid can be very important in our line of work.  If you have ANY question please contact your local trainer to discuss.

  • 4. 

    Burn hazards on the job may include contact with steam, flame, hot equipment, and  certain chemicals.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Burn hazards on the job can occur due to various factors such as contact with steam, flame, hot equipment, and certain chemicals. These hazards can cause serious injuries and burns to workers. It is important for employees to be aware of these risks and take necessary precautions to prevent accidents and protect themselves from burn injuries. Therefore, the statement "True" is an accurate reflection of the potential burn hazards in the workplace.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The most serious burns, which can destroy skin and even underlying tissue, are:

    • A.

      First-degree burns

    • B.

      Second-degree burns

    • C.

      Third-degree burns

    Correct Answer
    C. Third-degree burns
    Explanation
    Third-degree burns are the most serious burns because they can destroy both the skin and underlying tissue. Unlike first-degree and second-degree burns, which only affect the outer layers of the skin, third-degree burns penetrate through all layers of the skin and can cause extensive damage. These burns are often painless because they destroy nerve endings. Treatment for third-degree burns usually involves skin grafts and long-term medical care to promote healing and prevent infection.

  • 6. 

    First-aid treatment for chemical burns usually involves:

    • A.

      Applying petroleum jelly

    • B.

      Flushing the affected skin or eyes with water for 15 minutes

    • C.

      Elevating the burned body part for an hour

    Correct Answer
    B. Flushing the affected skin or eyes with water for 15 minutes
    Explanation
    Chemical burns occur when the skin or eyes come into contact with harmful chemicals. Flushing the affected area with water for 15 minutes is the correct first-aid treatment for chemical burns. This helps to remove any remaining chemicals from the skin or eyes and dilute the concentration of the chemical. Flushing with water should be done immediately after the burn occurs and should continue for a full 15 minutes to ensure thorough rinsing. This treatment helps to minimize the damage caused by the chemical and can provide relief from pain and discomfort. Applying petroleum jelly or elevating the burned body part is not the recommended first-aid treatment for chemical burns.

    If someone is having an emergency and you ask if you can help and they say no, you should still give care.

    • A.

      True

  • 9. 

    Which one of these is correct?

    • A.

      Care Call Check

    • B.

      Check Call Care

    • C.

      Control Check Care

    • D.

      Check Contact Care

    Correct Answer
    B. Check Call Care
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Check Call Care" because it follows a logical sequence of actions. First, you "check" the situation or problem, then you "call" for assistance or support, and finally, you "care" for the person or situation. This sequence makes sense in various contexts, such as emergency response, customer service, or medical assistance. Therefore, "Check Call Care" is the most appropriate and logical option among the given choices.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which comes first when someone is choking after you have recieved consent?

    • A.

      Abdominal Thrusts

    • B.

      Back Blows

    • C.

      Hip Toss

    Correct Answer
    B. Back Blows
    Explanation
    After receiving consent, the first step when someone is choking is to perform back blows. Back blows are a technique used to dislodge an obstruction from the airway by striking the person's back between the shoulder blades with the heel of your hand. This can help to force the object out and restore normal breathing. Abdominal thrusts and hip toss are not the initial steps for choking and should be performed if back blows are unsuccessful in clearing the airway.

    You come to the Dungarvin office on an irregular hour to drop off some paperwork to your manager.  Most of the people have gone home but a few of the lights are still on and the door is unlocked.  Your manager is aware that you are coming and is waiting for you in the back office.  As you come to the door you see your manger lying on the floor, wincing in pain.  She is conscious, face down, holding her right arm which is bleeding fairly consistantly.  What is the first thing you should do?

      Leave the paperwork on her desk, someone else will be by to help her.

    Correct Answer
    B. Check the Scene
    Explanation
    In this situation, the first thing you should do is check the scene. This involves assessing the immediate surroundings to ensure that there are no ongoing dangers or hazards that could potentially harm you or your manager further. By checking the scene, you can identify any potential risks and take appropriate actions to ensure safety, such as moving any objects that may be causing harm or calling for medical assistance if necessary. This step is crucial in order to prioritize the safety and well-being of both yourself and your manager before proceeding with any further actions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

  • 13. 

    Which of these are reasons to call 911 if someone has a seizure. (check all that apply)

    • A.

      A person has never had a seizure before

    • B.

      A person has a seizure while in water

    • C.

      A person has one seizure that lists 3 minutes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A person has never had a seizure before
    B. A person has a seizure while in water
    D. A person has more than one seizure in five minutes
    Explanation
    If a person has never had a seizure before, it is important to call 911 because it could be a sign of a serious underlying condition.

If a person has more than one seizure in five minutes, it could indicate a condition called status epilepticus which is a medical emergency requiring immediate attention.

      True

    Explanation
    The statement is false because not all people who have seizures have epilepsy. Seizures can be caused by various factors such as high fever, head injury, or drug/alcohol withdrawal. Epilepsy, on the other hand, is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent seizures. Therefore, while all people with epilepsy have seizures, not all people with seizures have epilepsy.
