Question 1 of 10
1. Question1 point(s)
After it is determined that the child has no pulse, what should be done?CorrectIncorrect
Question 2 of 10
2. Question1 point(s)
A child is unresponsive and is NOT breathing. You have activated the emergency response system and your pulse check reveals that the child has a pulse. What should you do now?CorrectIncorrect
Question 3 of 10
3. Question1 point(s)
A child is unresponsive and is not breathing. Emergency response was activated and now a pulse check shows that the child does have a pulse. You then open the airway, provide age-appropriate ventilations, and 100% oxygen with a bag valve mask. The child's pulse is < 60/min, and the child has signs of poor perfusion. What is your next intervention?CorrectIncorrect
Question 4 of 10
4. Question1 point(s)
The right branch of the PALS systematic approach algorithm is a sequence of three actions. In the proper sequence, the three actions are:
(Fill in the blanks)
Question 5 of 10
5. Question1 point(s)
The evaluate portion of the evaluate-identify-intervene sequence consists of what clinical assessment tools? (Choose all correct answers.)CorrectIncorrect
Question 6 of 10
6. Question1 point(s)
(True or False) The sequence of evaluate-identify-intervene should be used before and after each intervention and should continue until the child is stable.CorrectIncorrect
Question 7 of 10
7. Question1 point(s)
The initial impression of the PALS systematic approach algorithm includes which of the following characteristics? (Choose all correct answers.)CorrectIncorrect
Question 8 of 10
8. Question1 point(s)
The second box of the PALS systematic approach algorithm contains a question. (Fill in the blank to complete the question.)
Is the child or is immediate intervention needed?
Question 9 of 10
9. Question1 point(s)
In the PALS systematic approach algorithm, if the child is determined to be unresponsive or immediate intervention is needed, what will be your next step?CorrectIncorrect
Question 10 of 10
10. Question1 point(s)
After the emergency response is activated, the next intervention is to ____________.CorrectIncorrect
For the questions that you have to drag the answers down to match the descriptions is very hard to do on an Ipad or phone. I am often times missing these questions due to the way this is set up. Is there anyway to have the descriptions closer to the answers? For example, quiz #2 question 2 of the systematic approach. The descriptions strider, gurgling, wheezing…etc are so far down on the page, that my phone and IPad will not allow me to drag the answers down to the correct description.
Thank you .
Great website. I use it for ACLS and PALS!
Thanks for the feedback. I try and figure out some other method for delivering these questions. Kind regards, Jeff

That question “tricked” me too. After reading Jeff’s response, I said to myself ” OK, I KNEW THAT” …

I hope this helps I get horrible performance test anxiety
Jeff with admin. says
I have many customers that have severe test anxiety, and they state that the website/course helps them to pass with much less stress and anxiety.
If you have any questions during your training, please let me know.

HMMM…IN READING ALGORITHM PG 30, IT APPEARS TO ME, YOU CALL FOR HELP AFTER DETERMINING PAT EVAL “FROM DOORWAY” IS; A CHILD IS UNRESPONSIVE, NEEDING INTERVENTION,THEN BREATHING/ PULSE STATUS IS DETERMINED….QUESTION 1 AND 9 SEEM CONTRADICTORY. WHAT AM I MISSING?
Jeff with admin. says
Question 1 states “After it is determined that the child has no pulse, what should be done?” So here you are lower in the algorithm. If you just performed a pulse check this means you have already established unresponsiveness and activated emergency services.
Question. 2 states: “In the PALS systematic approach algorithm, if the child is determined to be unresponsive or immediate intervention is needed what will be your next step?” Here unresponsiveness is established and the next step after establishing unresponsiveness is to activate emergency services.
Kind regards, Jeff

These questions are a great review, and a reminder on how to study

awesome site, invaluable for ACLS and PALS during medic school
