All of the following—with the exception of—are instances of advanced airway adjuncts:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Advanced airways are included on page 113 of the AHA ACLS Provider Manual. An essential airway adjunct is an oropharyngeal airway (pg. 110)

The following questions should be made during the Primary Assessment's Airway Assessment section:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
A detailed explanation of the Primary Assessment is provided on page 21 of the AHA ACLS Provider manual. The Primary Assessment's Circulation section would evaluate the patient's pulse. also see: Systematic ACLS Approach

Any resuscitation attempt's success is based on:

Please select 2 correct answers

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The main objectives of BLS and ACLS are to: "support and restore effective oxygenation, ventilation, and circulation with the recovery of intact neurologic function." These objectives are supported by CPR and defibrillation.

The compression-to-ventilation ratio during CPR when there is no advanced airway in place is:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The compression-to-ventilation ratio during CPR when there is no advanced airway in place is 30:2

For adult resuscitation, the most crucial algorithm to understand is:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The Adult Cardiac Arrest Algorithm is the most crucial algorithm for adult resuscitation, and you must be familiar with it.

Which of the following statements about CPR once an advanced airway has been established is true:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Give 10 breaths per minute (10 breaths every 6 seconds) while maintaining constant chest compressions.

Which of the following statements regarding supplemental oxygen administration is true regarding the Primary Assessment's evaluation of (B)breathing? (Select any that apply.)

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Page in the AHA ACLS provider manual. p. 21 of the AHA ACLS provider manual. Using a bag-valve-mask, 100% oxygen will be administered during cardiac and respiratory arrest. For any reason other than cardiac and respiratory arrest, you will supply oxygen using the most appropriate delivery method (i.e. nasal cannula, simple mask, etc.). Keep the oxygen saturation at 90% or below for ACS. Keep the oxygen saturation between 92 and 98% for postcardiac arrest. Hypoxia and hyperoxia are thus avoided. Maintain an oxygen saturation of 95–98% in all other situations.

Which statement regarding the oropharyngeal airway (OPA) is false:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Page 107 of the AHA ACLS Provider Manual. OPAs shouldn't be administered to awake or semiconscious patients because they could cause them to gag and vomit.

Which of the subsequent procedures takes place prior to the BLS Assessment?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
ACLS AHA handbook, page 15. Make sure the scene is secure before doing the BLS, Primary, and Secondary Assessments.

Which of the following is FALSE while doing BLS/ACLS to a patient with a known or suspected cervical spine injury when trying to access the airway?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
In the trauma patient with a suspected neck injury, use jaw thrust without head extension, according to the AHA ACLS Provider Manual, page 104 (Figure 35c). In the event that the jaw thrust is unsuccessful, utilize a head tilt-chin lift procedure in order to preserve a patent airway and provide breathing. Instead of immobilization devices, use manual spinal motion restriction. Spinal immobilization by hand is safer.

Which of the following describes the proper order for BLS CPR?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
C-A-B is the BLS Sequence for CPR (compressions, airway, breathing). This emphasizes reducing chest compression delays and disruptions.

After using an AED to shock someone, you should:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
CPR should immediately follow each shock, starting with compressions.

Suctioning attempts in ACLS scenarios should typically be:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Suction attempts shouldn't last longer than ten seconds.

The following tasks are completed during the (C) circulation phase of the Primary Assessment:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Page 21 in the AHA ACLS provider manual. Every action taken throughout the Primary Assessment's Circulation section involves evaluating or treating the circulatory system in some way.

(True or False) Healthcare professionals should do the Primary Assessment initially for aware patients who may require more sophisticated assessment and management techniques?

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The AHA ACLS provider manual, page 15. "Use the Primary Assessment for your initial evaluation if the patient appears conscious."

Rescue breaths should be given at a rate of one breath every __ seconds to patients who are having respiratory arrest with a perfusing rhythm.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
Ventilation should be given to patients with a perfusing rhythm once every six seconds. By doing this, it is possible to prevent over ventilating patients who are having respiratory arrest.
