Emergency Recognition & Response Review

Choose the correct question that matches up with the answer that you see on the screen. Please check/record the correct answers!! 


Answer

ANSWER

  • Determine visually if the athlete is responsive.


Answer1

ANSWER

  • Shock is an acute, life-threatening condition that involves the body’s failure to maintain adequate circulation to the vital organs.


Answer2

ANSWER

  • The purpose of the initial check is to determine if the athlete’s life is in immediate jeopardy. The initial survey must include:

  • 1.) Nervous system

  • 2.) Respiratory system

  • 3.) Circulatory system

  • The physical exam should include specific components that enable the coach to collect as much information about the injury as possible under the circumstances. The essential parts of the survey are as follows:

  • 1.) History

  • 2.) Observation

  • 3.) Palpation


Answer3

ANSWER

  • 1.) Immediate care of the athlete

  • 2.) Equipment retrieval (emergency equipment)

  • 3.) Activation of EMS

  • 4.) Directing EMS to the scene of the injury


Answer4

ANSWER

  • Questions to the athlete should be phrased in simple, easy-to-understand terms that will elicit the desired information without leading the athlete into giving a preferred answer. Avoid using terminology too advanced for the athlete.


Answer5

ANSWER

  • Coaches, administrators, the team physician, athletic trainers, EMS personnel, student athletic trainers, and other staff members associated with the program.


Answer6

ANSWER

  • In the case of a helmeted athlete, such as a football player, do not remove the helmet or face mask in order to open the airway. This can cause unwanted movement which could worsen the injury.


Answer7

ANSWER

  • Coaches are typically seen as “first responders” and should focus on providing emergency care to the extent of their training and expertise. Coaches should avoid going beyond their level of training when evaluating an injured athlete.


Answer8

ANSWER

  • One of the earliest signs of severe internal bleeding will be hypovolemic shock, which is caused by too little blood within the vascular system.


Answer9

ANSWER

  • Proper planning is essential in ensuring appropriate initial first aid management of an injury so the athlete gets the appropriate care in a timely manner.


Answer10

ANSWER

  • A sign involves objective findings such as bleeding, swelling, discoloration, and deformity. Symptoms are subjective in nature and may not be as reliable in determining the nature of the injury. Symptoms include findings such as nausea, pain, and point tenderness.


Answer11

ANSWER

  • If you ask the athlete a question, and he or she is able to verbally respond, then the airway is open and the level of responsiveness is high.


Answer12

ANSWER

  • 1.) Deformity

  • 2.) Open wounds

  • 3.) Tenderness

  • 4.) Swelling


Answer13

ANSWER

  • When there is reason to believe a spinal injury may have occurred, the preferred method of opening the airway is the jaw-thrust technique.


Answer14

ANSWER

  • 1.) Severe hemorrhage (hypovolemic shock)

  • 2.) Heart failure (cardiogenic shock)

  • 3.) Dilated vessels (neurogenic shock)

  • 4.) Fainting (psychogenic shock)


Answer15

ANSWER

  • 1.) History

  • 2.) Observation

  • 3.) Palpation


Answer16

ANSWER

  • Basic first aid, CPR, and AED use.


Answer17

ANSWER

  • Stay with the athlete, monitor vital signs, treat for shock, and summon EMS personnel. Unless the athlete is in immediate danger of further injury, there is no justification for movement prior to the arrival of EMS.


Answer18

ANSWER

  • Assessment of the respiratory system
