1. As you are walking into work through the lobby of the hospital, you notice an elderly woman slumped over in a chair. There is no movement and she just doesn't look right. You determine that there is nothing around that makes this scene unsafe.
What would be your next intervention?CorrectIncorrect
2. You establish that this elderly woman is unresponsive. While laying her to the floor to ensure proper delivery of care, a coworker walks into the lobby and you shout for help and to get an AED.
What should be your next intervention after establishing unresponsiveness and shouting for help and a defibrillator?CorrectIncorrect
3. As you check the patient for breathing, you scan the victim's chest for rise and fall. There is NO chest rise and fall (NO breathing). Simultaneously, you check a carotid pulse.
She DOES have a palpable carotid pulse. While you are performing these checks, your coworker arrives back with emergency equipment and an AED, he turns it on and attaches it to the victim.
What will be your next intervention?CorrectIncorrect
4. Rescue breathing is now being provided to this patient with a bag-mask device.
(True or False) Provide 1 breath every 6 seconds (10 breaths/min.)CorrectIncorrect

In assessment we begin with airway then breathing,why did we start with breathibg and pulse before checking the airway??
The initial step after verifying unresponsiveness is to check for pulse and breathing simultaneously. There is no airway check at this step of the BLS cardiac arrest algorithm. See page 15 AHA BLS Provider Manual.
