<ul><li><p>CARDIOPULMONARY AND CEREBRAL RESUSCITATION (1) </p><p>1. Clinical death defines: </p><p>a. cessation of blood circulation and breathing </p><p>b. heart starts beating in a regular rhythm </p><p>c. might develop in cardiac arrest </p><p>d. absence of pulse at a large artery in a non-monitored patient, with altered state of conscious </p><p>e. all of the above. </p><p>2. CPR: </p><p>a. stands for cardiopulmonary resuscitation </p><p>b. is formed of maneuvers and techniques to reanimate the sick in clinical death </p><p>c. it can be commenced at any give time after heart and breathing stopped. </p><p>d. irreversible injuries at cell level appear immediately </p><p>e. "mouth to mouth" breath combined with chest compressions is a technique rediscovered in 1960 by P. Safar &amp; Kouwenhoven. </p><p>3. Resuscitation time: </p><p>a. is a term with of no clinical importance </p><p>b. it contains 4 main components: a-lesion time, lesion time, phase of paralysis, time to die </p><p>c. is the time passed from cardiac arrest till the induction of irreversible injuries </p><p>d. RT is 20 to 30 minutes for the liver cell, retinal cell 120 minutes, 180 minutes for renal cell </p><p>e. phase of paralysis from the first signs of functional deficit till the disappearance of organ function </p></li><li><p>4. The optimal time for reversible resuscitation: </p><p>a. 4-8 minutes </p><p>b. 5-10 minutes </p><p>c. under 4 minutes for subjects in a state of hypothermia </p><p>d. 4 minutes </p><p>e. in case of opiate poisoning, the RT is shortened to 5-7 minutes </p><p>5. Causes of cardiac arrest: </p><p>a. secondary cardiac arrest due to arrhythmia, atrioventricular block, IMA, electrocution, drug overdose </p><p>b. secondary cardiac arrest due to depression of the respiratory centers, airway obstruction, massive pulmonary embolism, anaphylactic shock, electrolyte disturbances </p><p>c. causes of cardiorespiratory arrest are: airway obstruction, breathing problems (acute or chronic), circulatory problems </p><p>d. laryngospasm, bronchospasm is considered to be a cause of cardiac arrest </p><p>e. pneumothorax, haemothorax, infection, exacerbation of COPD, asthma, pulmonary embolus is considered to be a cause of cardiac arrest </p><p>6. Recognition of cardiac arrest: </p><p>a. patient is unconscious without a pulse in large vessels </p><p>b. skin is pink, warm, patient is breathing </p><p>c. pupils are miotic, small </p><p>d. absence of carotid pulse and lack of consciousness present in the first 15 seconds of the heart stopping </p><p>e. apnea is an early sign </p></li><li><p>7. Measures in case of a cardiac arrest: </p><p>a. listening to the heart or BP measurement are necessary gestures </p><p>b. start resuscitation after having an ECG monitor </p><p>c. chain of survival means early recognition of cardiac arrest, early CPR, post resuscitation care </p><p>d. chain of survival means early recognition of cardiac arrest, early CPR, early defibrillation, post resuscitation care </p><p>e. initiate the chain of survival </p><p>8. Objectives of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation: </p><p>a. first, initiate advanced life support </p><p>b. first, initiate basic life support </p><p>c. second advanced life support, resumption of spontaneous cardiac circulation and ventilation </p><p>d. in third stage, initiate prolonged life support with cerebral resuscitation &amp; maintenance of vital functions (intensive therapy) </p><p>e. BLS includes artificial ventilation, external cardiac massage, defibrillation, recognition of MI and stroke, removal of foreign bodies in case of obstructive airways </p><p>9. BLS: </p><p>a. cardiac arrest must be suspected in any person found unconscious without any reasons </p><p>b. if the person doesnt respond to any stimuli, you must follow the ABCDE of CPR </p><p>c. dont call for help before starting ABCDE assessing </p><p>d. the general population learns the phone fast/phone first algorithm </p><p>e. all of the above </p></li><li><p>10. ABCDE approach: </p><p>a. stands for airway, breathing, circulation, defibrillation, environment </p><p>b. treat life-threatening problems before moving to the next part of assessment </p><p>c. call for appropriate help early </p><p>d. the aim of the initial treatment is to keep the patient alive </p><p>e. ABCDE can be skipped when talking about an in-hospital resuscitation </p><p>11. First steps in ABCDE: </p><p>a. ensure personal safety </p><p>b. if patient is awake, shake well and shout How are you? </p><p>c. if he responds normally he has a patent airway, is breathing and has brain perfusion </p><p>d.
