How it Works
BLS Practice Exams (Hard) - Part 1
What is the primary cause of cardiac arrest?
Pulseless ventricular tachycardia
The sino-atrial node
After offering resuscitation in the event of a cardiac arrest and your patient starts breathing, what's the best recovery position to put them in to maintain a clear airway?
In a still position
In a left lateral position
In a stable true lateral position, head-dependent on something and no pressure on the chest
In a stable true lateral position, head-dependent on something with pressure on the chest
What is the most likely complication of delivering too much air during rescue breathing?
Which of the following is a contraindication to nasotracheal intubation in a trauma patient?
Cervical Spine Fracture
Which of the following is a contraindication to cricothyrotomy?
Acute airway obstruction
Inability to orotracheally or digitally intubate
Age under 9 years old
Which of the following is NOT a contraindication to noninvasive-pressure ventilation (NPPV)?
Severely impaired level of consciousness
What is most helpful in determining the need for intubation?
Pulse oximetry alone
Testing the gag reflex
What is the correct hand placement for infant CPR?
Place the index finger on the center of the chest in line with the infant's nipples.
Place your 2 hands on the center of the chest in line with the infant's nipples.
Place your 1 hand on the center of the chest in line with the infant's nipples.
A, B, and C are possible hand placements for infant CPR
What is the cause of ventricular fibrillation?
Electrical activity in the ventricles is disordered.
The heartbeat is unsynchronized.
The heart begins to quiver instead of pumping blood.
All of the above.
Which of the following is not a shockable rhythm?
Pulseless electrical activity
Sharps containers should be replaced when
What is a Neutral zone?
A place to store OPIM
A safe blood drawing site
A designated location to place sharps during a surgical procedure
Where PPE is stored
What is the percentage of oxygen in exhaled air?
An oxygen tank is full when the pressure gauge reads
An oxygen tank is empty when the pressure reaches
What technique is used for bag-mask ventilation during 2 rescuer CPR?
E-C clamp technique
Which hand part must be used to compress the infant's chest when there are 2 rescuers?
Which of the following statements concerning harm reduction programs for chronic drug users is false?
Opioid replacement therapies help reduce drug craving and therefore reduce drug use
Harm reduction programs have had no effect on emergency room visits due to drug use
Heroin maintenance programs that provide medical prescriptions for heroin and ‘safe sites’ for injections show a decreased risk associated with drug use
A disadvantage of harm reduction programs is that they suggest that there is a responsible way of using drugs and that drug use is unpreventable
What is the first step in administering opioid overdose?
Evaluating signs of opioid overdose
What's the opioid overdose treatment for a hypoglycemic patient?
Administer oxygen, 50% dextrose
Give direct opioid antagonist
Give clonidine or methadone
Consider other causes and be prepared to intubate and ventilate the patient
