    The correct ratio of chest compressions to ventilations in CPR for a child or infant is?

    • A.

      15 : 1

    • B.

      5 : 2

    • C.

      15 : 2

    • D.

      30 : 2

    Correct Answer
    D. 30 : 2
    Explanation
    The correct ratio of chest compressions to ventilations in CPR for a child or infant is 30:2. This means that for every 30 chest compressions, there should be 2 ventilations. This ratio ensures that enough oxygen is being delivered to the child or infant while also maintaining adequate blood circulation through chest compressions.

  • 3. 

    The combined skills of mouth-to-mouth ventilations and chest compressions, when used together, is called

    • A.

      Airway control

    • B.

      Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation

    • C.

      Initial Assessment

    • D.

      Artificial Circulation

    Correct Answer
    B. Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation
    Explanation
    When someone's heart stops beating, the combined skills of mouth-to-mouth ventilations and chest compressions are used to maintain blood circulation and oxygen supply to the body. This technique is called Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). CPR involves providing rescue breaths by blowing air into the person's lungs and performing chest compressions to manually pump blood through the body. It is a crucial emergency procedure used to save lives in situations such as cardiac arrest or drowning.

    What should you do if a child has sustained a severe burn from the hot tap?

    • A.

      Loosely wrap the burn in cling film or a clean plastic bag

      Remove the clothing that is stuck to the burn

    • C.

      Run the burn under hot water for 15 minutes

    • D.

      Tightly wrap a bandage and gauze pad around the burn

    Correct Answer
    A. Loosely wrap the burn in cling film or a clean plastic bag
    Explanation
    If a child has sustained a severe burn from the hot tap, it is important to remove the clothing that is stuck to the burn. However, tightly wrapping a bandage and gauze pad around the burn can increase the risk of infection and restrict blood flow. Running the burn under hot water for 15 minutes can also worsen the burn and cause more damage. Therefore, the best course of action is to loosely wrap the burn in cling film or a clean plastic bag. This will help protect the burn from further contamination while allowing air to circulate and promote healing.

    Which of the following is NOT a symptom of meningitis?

    • A.

      High temperature

    • B.

      A blotchy red rash

    • C.

      Repeated fainting

    • D.

      Severe headache

    Correct Answer
    C. Repeated fainting
    Explanation
    Repeated fainting is not a symptom of meningitis. Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, and common symptoms include high temperature, a blotchy red rash, and severe headache. Repeated fainting may be caused by other factors such as low blood pressure or heart problems, but it is not typically associated with meningitis.

    To prevent infection, what is the best to do before treating the child?

    • A.

      Call the parents

    • B.

      Clean the wound

    • C.

      Apply a sterile dressing

    • D.

      Wash your hands before treatment and wear gloves

    Correct Answer
    D. Wash your hands before treatment and wear gloves
    Explanation
    To prevent infection, it is important to maintain proper hygiene and take necessary precautions. Washing hands before treatment helps to eliminate any potential pathogens on the hands that could be transferred to the child. Wearing gloves provides an additional barrier between the caregiver's hands and the child's wound, reducing the risk of contamination. This combination of hand hygiene and glove usage helps to minimize the chances of infection and ensures a safer treatment process.

      Talking

    • D.

      Unresponsive

    Correct Answer
    D. Unresponsive
    Explanation
    If an infant or child is unresponsive, it means that they are not conscious or responsive to stimuli. This could indicate a serious medical emergency such as a loss of consciousness, severe injury, or a medical condition that requires immediate attention. In such cases, it is important to call for help, such as emergency medical services, to ensure that the child receives the necessary medical assistance as soon as possible.

      The Rule of Nines

    • D.

      The Glasgow Coma Scale

    Correct Answer
    A. AVPU
    Explanation
    AVPU is used to determine an infant or child's level of response. AVPU stands for Alert, Verbal, Pain, and Unresponsive. It is a simple and commonly used method to assess the level of consciousness and neurological function in pediatric patients. By evaluating the child's response to stimuli, such as voice or pain, healthcare providers can quickly determine their level of consciousness and make appropriate decisions regarding their care.
