Answers To The Questions

  1. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is the long form of CPR.

  1. To preserve life is the primary answer. The others are secondary and subsequent actions.

  1. Danger – Response – Send For Help—Airway – Breathing—Circulation—Defibrillation. 

  1. Two (2) fingers above their belly button is the correct answer.

  1. Employ the DRSABCD protocol

  1. The one who appears to be dead and not moving. The others are still alive and breathing.

  1. BAC is the correct answer. We will explain why below in the question 8 answer.

  1. You start with the unresponsive person not breathing and provide CPR in an attempt to revive them first to preserve their life. Then you work backwards. Next, you need to stabilise the person with the suspected spinal injury and treat the fracture appropriately to prevent them from moving. Lastly, the one screaming the loudest is hurt the least. They can be verbally instructed to provide their own First Aid by telling them to put pressure on their wounds or source any First Aid kits in vehicles to stop their bleeding. Once that is achieved, you can instruct them to provide First Aid to the second person until help arrives, send them to get help, and use them to keep an eye on the ABCs of the second person should they lose consciousness and require CPR or other First Aid treatment, and lastly they can be used to take over CPR on the first person freeing you to then move on to treat the spinal injury and fracture of the second person. 

As a side note, it is important to keep watch on the person least injured as they may appear to be fine but have internal injuries that cause them to enter a state of deep shock that could potentially be fatal if not treated.

  1. Direct pressure to or around the wound site will slow and then stop bleeding in most cases. If it is not working, then press harder! Where an artery has ruptured, apply a tourniquet if one is available, tightening only until the bleeding stops and no further beyond that level of tightness.

  1. A shock

  1. 11. Tilt them forward, carry out five back blows, then five stomach thrusts and repeat until the blockage has been forced out of the airway.

  1.   Heat stroke
  1.  Around 36-37 degrees Celsius is normal. The first option is hypothermic. They need to get warm gently and slowly. The third option is hyperthermic. The person is close to death without immediate temperature reduction through the use of ice baths or being submerged in cold water until the temperature drops back into the 37 degree zone.

  1. Head forwards Tilting the head backwards used to be the practised treatment. This is one example of protocols changing over time with medical advances and why keeping First Aid skills up to date is important.

       15. On their left side, with their top leg placed at a right angle, is the official Recovery Position. This position is taught as part of the CPR course and applies to all First Aid when the recovery position is required to monitor a person who is breathing and has a heartbeat. They can be conscious and unconscious in this position.

       16. Remove tentacles and wash the sting area in ocean water then apply vinegar.

Applying vinegar alone will neutralize any unfired venom sacs not in contact with the skin, but the tentacles still need to be removed. By doing it in reverse, you can cause any unfired venom sacks stuck to the skin to release and sting after you have applied the treatment. That will require a secondary treatment of vinegar making the order you deliver your First Aid important due to the limited supply of vinegar on hand.
