Question Answer
1. What is the correct compression-to-ventilation ratio for adult CPR?
A) 30:1
B) 5:1
C) 3:2
D) 30:2
2. Between each chest compression, you should __________.
A) allow full chest recoil
B) remove your hands from the chest
C) check for a pulse
D) administer a breath
allow full chest recoil
3. Your conscious patient has a mild partial airway obstruction. You should:
A) encourage the patient to cough.
B) perform abdominal thrusts.
C) administer back blows.
D) place the patient supine.
encourage the patient to cough
4. A 60-year-old man is found to be unresponsive, pulseless, and apneic. You should:
A) start CPR and transport immediately.
B) withhold CPR until he is defibrillated.
C) determine if he has a valid living will.
D) begin CPR until an AED is available.
start CPR and transport immediately
5. While rescuer one is finishing his or her fifth cycle of 30 compression's, rescuer two should:
A) assess for a carotid pulse for 15 seconds.
B) move to the opposite side of the patient's chest.
C) give two breaths and prepare to start compression's.
D) suction the patient's mouth and give two more ventilation's.
move to the opposite side of the patient's chest
6. The impedance threshold device (ITD) may improve circulation during active compression-decompression CPR by:
A) maintaining increased intrathoracic pressure during the downward stroke of each chest compression, which forces more blood from both of the ventricles.
B) maximizing the amount of air in the lungs following chest recoil, which hyperinflates the lungs and forces more blood from the ventricle during each compression.
C) drawing all of the air out of the lungs in between chest compressions, which causes positive intrathoracic pressure and a reduction of blood return to the right side of the heart.
D) limiting the amount of air that enters the lungs during the recoil phase between chest compression's, which results in negative intrathoracic pressure and improved cardiac filling.
maintaining increased intrathoracic pressure during the downward stroke of each chest compression, which forces more blood from both of the ventricles
7. In most cases, cardiopulmonary arrest in infants and children is caused by:
A) a drug overdose.
B) respiratory arrest.
C) severe chest trauma.
D) a cardiac dysrhythmia.
respiratory arrest
8. CPR should be initiated when:
A) rigor mortis is obvious.
B) a valid living will is unavailable.
C) the carotid pulse is very weak.
D) signs of putrefaction are present.
a valid living will is unavailable
9. Signs of a sudden severe upper airway obstruction include all of the following, EXCEPT:
A) acute cyanosis.
B) inability to speak.
C) grasping the throat.
D) forceful coughing.
forceful coughing.
10. CPR retraining is the MOST effective when it:
A) is self-paced and brief.
B) occurs every 24 months.
C) is delivered by computer.
D) involves hands-on practice.
involves hands-on practice
11. Gastric distention will MOST likely occur:
A) ] in patients who are intubated.
B) if you ventilate a patient too quickly.
C) when you deliver minimal tidal volume.
D) when the airway is completely obstructed.
if you ventilate a patient too quickly
