    Explanation
    In this situation, the correct next action plan would be to call for help. This is important because the person did not respond to the shoulder tap, indicating that they may be in need of immediate medical attention. By calling for help, you can ensure that medical professionals are alerted and can provide the necessary assistance to the unconscious person.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How should you open the airway of an unconscious casualty?

    • A.

      Head tilt and chin lift.

    • B.

      Jaw thrust

    • C.

       Head tilt and jaw thrust.

    • D.

      Lift the chin.

    Correct Answer
    A. Head tilt and chin lift.
    Explanation
    To open the airway of an unconscious casualty, the recommended technique is the head tilt and chin lift. This involves placing one hand on the casualty's forehead and gently tilting their head back, while using the other hand to lift their chin upwards. This maneuver helps to clear any obstruction in the airway by moving the tongue away from the back of the throat, allowing for effective breathing. The jaw thrust technique is an alternative method used when there is a suspected neck or spinal injury. Lifting the chin alone may not be sufficient to open the airway properly.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which is the correct ratio of chest compressions to rescue breaths for use in CPR of an adult casualty?

    • A.

      2 compressions : 30 rescue breaths.

    • B.

       5 compressions : 1 rescue breath.

    • C.

      15 compressions : 2 rescue breaths.

    • D.

      30 compressions : 2 rescue breaths.

    Correct Answer
    D. 30 compressions : 2 rescue breaths.
    Explanation
    The correct ratio of chest compressions to rescue breaths for use in CPR of an adult casualty is 30 compressions : 2 rescue breaths. This means that after every 30 chest compressions, two rescue breaths should be given. This ratio ensures that there is enough oxygen circulation to the patient's body while also providing the necessary chest compressions to maintain blood flow.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which medical condition will develop from severe blood loss?

    • A.

      Shock.

    • B.

      Hypoglycaemia.

    • C.

      Anaphylaxis

    • D.

      Hypothermia.

    Correct Answer
    A. Shock.
    Explanation
    Severe blood loss can lead to a condition called shock. Shock occurs when there is insufficient blood flow to the body's tissues and organs, resulting in a lack of oxygen and nutrients. This can happen due to trauma, surgery, or other medical conditions that cause significant blood loss. Symptoms of shock include low blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, pale and cool skin, confusion, and weakness. Prompt medical attention is necessary to treat shock and restore blood flow to prevent further complications.

    What steps would you take to control bleeding from a nosebleed?

    • A.

       Sit casualty down, lean backward and pinch soft part of nose

    • B.

      Lie casualty down and pinch soft part of nose

    • C.

      Sit casualty down, lean forward and pinch soft part of nose

    • D.

      Lie casualty down and pinch top of nose.

    Correct Answer
    C. Sit casualty down, lean forward and pinch soft part of nose
    Explanation
    When a person has a nosebleed, the recommended steps to control the bleeding are to sit the casualty down, lean them forward, and pinch the soft part of their nose. This position helps prevent blood from flowing down the throat and potentially causing choking or swallowing. Leaning forward also helps to minimize blood flow and pressure in the nasal blood vessels. Pinching the soft part of the nose helps to apply pressure and constrict the blood vessels, stopping the bleeding.

    • D.

      Check for level of response.

    Correct Answer
    C. Check for danger and ensure that contact with the electrical source is broken
    Explanation
    When treating an electrical burn, the first action should be to check for danger and ensure that contact with the electrical source is broken. This is important to prevent further injury or electrocution. It is crucial to ensure the safety of both the casualty and the person providing assistance before proceeding with any other actions.

     What should a casualty with a severe allergy carry at all times?

    • A.

      Insulin.

    • B.

      Acetaminophen/Paracetamol.

    • D.

      Aspirin.

    Correct Answer
    C. Adrenaline (Epipen).
    Explanation
    A casualty with a severe allergy should carry adrenaline (Epipen) at all times. Adrenaline is a medication that can be self-administered in case of an allergic reaction. It helps to counteract the symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as difficulty breathing, swelling, and low blood pressure. Carrying an Epipen ensures that the casualty can quickly and effectively treat an allergic reaction, potentially saving their life.

    What is faint?

    • A.

      A response to fear.

    • B.

      An unexpected collapse.

    • C.

      A brief loss of consciousness.

    • D.

       A sign of flu.

    Correct Answer
    C. A brief loss of consciousness.
    Explanation
    Faint refers to a temporary loss of consciousness, typically caused by a lack of oxygen reaching the brain. This can occur due to various reasons such as low blood pressure, dehydration, or standing up too quickly. During a fainting episode, a person may experience dizziness, lightheadedness, and blurred vision before temporarily losing consciousness. Once unconsciousness occurs, the individual usually recovers quickly and regains consciousness on their own. Therefore, the correct answer is "A brief loss of consciousness."
