Although you can tell that the patient DOES have a pulse, you cannot observe any chest movement. The patient doesn't seem to be breathing, unfortunately. What should be the next course of action?

Correct! Wrong!

Provide rescue breathing at a rate of 1 breath every 6 seconds to the adult and teenage victim who is experiencing respiratory arrest.

An observer who had gone to get an AED returns. What will your following intervention be?

Correct! Wrong!

You should start rescue breathing as soon as you determine respiratory arrest is happening. AED analysis will be prepared if an AED is attached at this point in case the patient loses their pulse. Most AEDs are equipped with rescue breathing apparatus. Rescue breathing equipment should be checked in the AED container. Start utilizing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to start rescue breathing if a rescue breathing apparatus is not available.

The bystander uses their cell phone to dial 911 and then goes in search of an AED. How will you intervene next?

Correct! Wrong!

The next step is to concurrently check for breathing and a pulse after making sure that emergency services are called and an AED is secured. Make sure the time allotted for this check is under 10 seconds.

Unnoticed for a short amount of time, a 2-year-old boy fell into a swimming pool. When the youngster was discovered, his mother, who was terrified, quickly took him out of the water. As a BLS provider, you provide help. You start by making sure the area is secure.
At this point in the scenario, what action will you take?

Correct! Wrong!

Verifying whether the patient is responsive or not comes after the scene has been made safe.

When performing rescue breathing, you can use the head tilt-chin lift or the jaw push to open the airway. If a head or neck injury is suspected, which technique is used?

Correct! Wrong!

In the event that a head or neck injury is suspected, use the jaw-thrust procedure to limit neck and spine motion. The head tilt-chin lift maneuver may be applied if the task push is ineffective in opening the airway.

You see a teen kid lying on the ground in the hallway where you work at a high school. What is your initial course of action after establishing the safety of the situation?

Correct! Wrong!

After determining that the location is secure, the first thing to do is to see if anyone is responsive.

You are currently giving rescue breaths at a frequency of one every two to three seconds. With each ventilation, your chest is rising and falling properly.
How frequently should the pulse be checked again to make sure cardiac arrest is not present?

Correct! Wrong!

Every two minutes or so, the pulse should be checked again. Start chest compressions during CPR if there isn't a pulse.

How often should you provide one breath as you start your rescue breathing?

Correct! Wrong!

The pediatric patient receives rescue breaths at a rate of one breath every two to three secondsĀ or around 20 to 30 breaths per minute.

The victim doesn't say anything. Therefore, you tell an instructor to dial 911 and retrieve the AED. What will be your following intervention?

Correct! Wrong!

After calling 911 and sending someone to get an AED, check for respiration and the carotid pulse.

What would you do after establishing that the child is unresponsive by tapping the child's shoulder and asking, "Are you OK?" now that the kid is not responding?

Correct! Wrong!

The next step after determining responsiveness is to call emergency services and get an AED because there are bystanders nearby who can help with these activities as you continue with the BLS routine.

The pulse check confirms that the infant DOES have a pulse and that the child IS NOT breathing. The heartbeat is roughly 90 per minute.
(Is it correct?) As soon as the heart rate drops below 100 beats per minute, you should start chest compressions.

Correct! Wrong!

This is false. Only start compressions if the pulse stays below 60 beats per minute and there are indicators of poor perfusion.
