Question Answer
All of the following will help minimize the risk of gastric distention when ventilating an apneic patient with a BVM device, EXCEPT: a) increasing the amount of delivered tidal volume; b) applying pressure to the cricoid cartilage; c) ventilating the patient at the appropriate rate; d) ensuring the appropriate airway positiona) increasing the amount of delivered tidal volume
Proper technique for suctioning the oropharynx of an adult patient includes:suctioning while withdrawing the catheter from the oropharynx
Which of the following patients would MOST likely require insertion of an oropharyngeal airway?: a) A 64-year-old conscious patient with rapid and deep respirations; b) A 33-year-old semiconscious patient with reduced tidal volume; c) A 51-year-old confused patient with severely labored respirations; d) A 40-year-old unconscious patient with slow, shallow respirationsd) A 40-year-old unconscious patient with slow, shallow respirations
As the single EMT-B managing an apneic patient's airway, the preferred initial method of providing ventilations is the:mouth-to-mask with one-way valve
A 71-year-old male is semiconscious following a sudden, severe headache. There is vomitus on his face and he is breathing with slow, shallow respirations. The MOST appropriate initial airway management for this patient is to:perform oropharyngeal suctioning
A patient who is suspected of being hypoxic and is breathing adequately should be given supplemental oxygen with a:nonrebreathing mask
The jaw-thrust maneuver is used to open the airway of patients with suspected:cervical spine injuries
An oxygen cylinder should be taken out of service and refilled when the pressure inside it is less than:500 psi
Prior to applying a nonrebreathing mask on a patient, you must ensure that the:reservoir bag is fully inflated
What is the MOST common cause of airway obstruction in an unconscious patient?The tongue
You are dispatched to a residence where a middle-aged man was found unconscious in his front yard. There are no witnesses that can tell you what happened. You find him in a prone position; his eyes are closed and he is not moving. Your FIRST action should be to:log roll him as a unit to a supine position
What is the MOST reliable indicator of adequately performed positive-pressure ventilations with a BVM device?Adequate rise of the chest when squeezing the bag
Which of the following patients is breathing adequately?: a) Conscious male with respirations of 22 breaths/min and pink skin; b) Unconscious 52-year-old female with snoring respirations and cool, pale skin; c) Conscious male with respirations of 18 breaths/min and reduced tidal volume; d) Confused female with facial cyanosis and rapid, shallow respirationsa) Conscious male with respirations of 22 breaths/min and pink skin
In which of the following patients would the head-tilt chin-lift maneuver be the MOST appropriate method of opening the airway?: a) A 37-year-old female who is found unconscious in her bed; b) A 45-year-old male who is semiconscious after falling 20 feet; c) A 50-year-old male who is unconscious following head trauma; d) A 24-year-old male who is found unconscious at the base of a treea) A 37-year-old female who is found unconscious in her bed
To select the proper size oropharyngeal airway, you should measure from the:corner of the mouth to the earlobe
A nasopharyngeal airway is inserted:with the bevel facing the septum if inserted into the right nare
With a good mask-to-face seal and an oxygen flow rate of 15 L/min, the nonrebreathing mask is capable of delivering up to ____% oxygen.90
A 37-year-old male has a partial foreign body airway obstruction. He is conscious and alert and is coughing forcefully. His skin is pink, warm, and moist. The MOST appropriate treatment for this patient includes:encouraging him to cough and transporting
Which of the following statements regarding the one-person bag-valve mask (BVM) device is correct?: a) The BVM device delivers more tidal volume and a higher oxygen concentration than the mouth-to-mask technique; b) BVM ventilations should be delivered over 1 second when the device is being operated by one person; c) The C-clamp method of holding the mask to the face is not effective when ventilating a patient with a BVM; d) Adequate tidal volume is often difficult to achieve when one EMT-B is operating the BVM deviced) Adequate tidal volume is often difficult to achieve when one EMT-B is operating the BVM device
The pressure of gas in a full cylinder of oxygen is approximately ______ pounds per square inch (psi).2,000
