Answer – Offer nothing to eat or drink.

2. A victim’s arm is bleeding, which step should you NOT take?
Answer – Keep the arm level. The arm should be elevated about the heart to slow the flow of blood.

3. To treat a burned arm, which step SHOULD you take?
Answer – Hold the arm under running cool water.

4. What does the acronym EMT stand for?
Answer – Emergency Medical Technician

5. What three-word command is helpful in extinguishing a clothing fire?

6. Your child is stung in the arm by a bee, which step should you NOT take?

Here are the answers to our First Aid Quiz

1. What first aid kit item will help protect you from diseases that can be transmitted from bodily fluids?
Answer – Latex gloves

2. When you are faced with a bleeding injury, when should you replace blood soaked gauze?
Answer – Never. Do not remove blood soaked dressings, as you should place new dressings over the blood soaked ones. Leaving these in place will help “clot” the wound and control bleeding. It’s natural to think that once a gauze dressing becomes blood soaked it needs to be removed, but doing so will only start the bleeding again and bring you back to square one.

3. What is the most common household injury among children?
Answer – Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal home injuries across all childhood age groups, accounting for an average of nearly 1.3 million injuries each year.

4. When faced with an eye injury, where should you place bandages after flushing the injured eye out with water?
Answer – Cover both eyes with eye pads, since it is important to keep the injured eye still as the eyes work in unison.

5. What popular 70s disco song’s chorus follows the exact beats per minute recommended for chest compressions during CPR?
Answer – Bee Gees’ Stayin’ Alive

6. What does “ABC” stand for in a choking situation?
Answer – Airway, breathing, circulation

OK So I apparently would be a really bad person to have around in an emergency. Good thing Colin just took a First Aid course :-)


2 Jen October 26, 2009 at 9:46 pm

I got 83% so that’s not too bad. Interesting quiz though.. it really makes you stop and think? Are we as moms prepared…


3 Melissa M October 27, 2009 at 8:43 am

I got 100% (then again I better…I was an Army medic lol) Hope I win the first aid kit!


4 martha October 27, 2009 at 9:33 am

I made a 67% but with 3 kids that is not good enough. i need a cpr refresher course


5 kim October 27, 2009 at 2:30 pm

Why isn’t there a sound bite of Janice and Susan singing so I can recognize those songs? ;o)


6 Teresa October 27, 2009 at 2:53 pm

So I got 50%. Not too great but not as bad as I figured. I got #5 right too, LOL. Man it’s been a long time since I took any first aid classes.


7 Raise Them Up October 27, 2009 at 4:41 pm

I got an 83. I’m glad you linked the answers so I could see what I got wrong. A good first aid kit should be staple in every house. I would love to have this one!


8 Dawn October 28, 2009 at 7:26 am

I had to check to see which ones I had wrong. I agree, though – as the parent of 3, I need to know 100%!


9 Carol W. October 28, 2009 at 11:42 am

I got 83%. The answer to the question about eye injuries really surprised me.


10 lace October 28, 2009 at 3:42 pm

I got 83%. I missed the question about covering both eyes. This would be a great kit to give at a baby shower.


11 Debra Mills October 29, 2009 at 4:11 pm

oh darnit! I only got 50%. Guess I really do need that emergency kit, esp. since I’m disabled! LOL Wow, I didn’t know that about the gauze on BOTH eyes, but that makes a lot of sense!

Thanks for that – I learned something!



12 Jamie October 31, 2009 at 2:05 pm

I missed the 2nd and 3rd questions. Glad I came and checked my answers, I learned something new.


13 Mama Llama November 2, 2009 at 11:00 pm

I got only 67%…seems liek I need another refresher. Hope this is the right place to post the results.


14 Adrienne November 3, 2009 at 8:15 am

wow I only got a 67%. I realy thought i knew this.


15 Barb Chamberlain November 3, 2009 at 11:38 pm

I got 67%. The eye injury one was very helpful–I don’t remember learning that in my basic first aid class. (I keep getting recertified, but don’t get chances to use the knowledge.)

I guess I would have been going a bit too fast on CPR if I were singing YMCA….



16 Amy November 3, 2009 at 11:38 pm

I scored 100% and better have b/c I have been a CPR instructor and trained in child and adult CPR for many years. I am happy to have just added pet CPR to the mix.
I have had the unfortunate distinction of having to use CPR in quite a few emergencies in my line of work, and am grateful that all have been successful.
I also find it quite ironic that Staying Alive is the perfect CPR song!

18 Peggy Gorman November 4, 2009 at 7:59 am

I got 100%. I was cert. as a EMT , its so important because we can face an emergency and its always best to be prepared.
Thanks for this giveaway!


19 Jen November 4, 2009 at 5:58 pm

WhooHoo I got 100%! This is a fabulous quiz and very valuable kits.


20 Willy November 8, 2009 at 10:31 am

I think everyone should know at least basic first aid and CPR, You never know when an incident will happen and we need to be readt!


21 Karen Rennirt November 8, 2009 at 12:20 pm

I got 83% not to bad, but not good enough. Would love to win this for my daughter who is a new mother. I think her having this would keep her from freaking out when something happens to her daughter, because she would know she could look in this and know for sure what to do instead of panicing. Thanks for the chance.


22 Ginny November 12, 2009 at 7:00 pm

Oh my gosh, I got 67% only. I just went through the answers, I got the blood one wrong which I really should have known. I did not know about the eyes though, I selected cover the injured eye. Makes sense though to cover both. I’m not sure what the other I got wrong was, lol.


23 Sidni November 13, 2009 at 4:26 am

Wow! I got 100%! We spend our summers camping & outdoors for hours on end so I’d really love to win this great giveaway! Thank you!


24 Sidni November 13, 2009 at 4:26 am

I’m a subscriber via newsletter! I love your site & I hope I win this great giveaway!


25 Marilyn H November 13, 2009 at 9:05 am

I thought that only 6 questions wasn’t enough to tell how much I really knew but I didn’t do bad. I could still benefit from that kit though!


26 Naddez November 13, 2009 at 11:27 am

I got a 67%. Even though my children are teens and adults, I have a granddaughter coming soon. OMG! I need a CPR refresher course!! :)


27 Marj McClendon November 13, 2009 at 12:41 pm

Ohhhhhhhh, I got 1 question right. I am so bad, I panic most of the time. This sounds like exactly what I need in the car and house.


28 Tami E November 13, 2009 at 2:11 pm

Only 50%! I certainly could use a good first aid kit.


29 Jenn November 13, 2009 at 8:12 pm

67%. Who knew about the song and I didnt’ get the cover both eyes.
Ugh. I should probably brush up with my first aid!


30 Valentina November 15, 2009 at 11:42 am

I got 80% yippee! I still believe I can benefit from using this kit!


31 Taran November 15, 2009 at 6:17 pm

I got a 100% and I should have after all I am taking Medical Assistant in school. I do of course need the First Aid Kit.


32 Jojo November 17, 2009 at 4:20 pm

I received an 83%..I got the answer about the beesting wrong. :( I guess we could all use one of these..especially since in the case of an emergency, you need to think fast, and the panic might make you forget something important.


33 Carrie November 17, 2009 at 11:16 pm

I’m embarrassed to say that I only got a 67% on the first quiz- and I was a licensed EMT in college! I’ve forgotten a lot!


34 Cheri November 18, 2009 at 9:47 am

I only did 67% on both – but that song question? I don’t remember all of those songs!
Anyway – please enter me for the kit!


35 nicole walker November 18, 2009 at 3:12 pm

yikes….better get my first aid book out….
please enter me for the kid it looks like I could really use it!


36 Lundie November 19, 2009 at 8:51 pm

I just finished my CERT training and realize it’s time for me to go on to step 2!! I have my back pack prepped, but a personal first aid kit for home would be an awesome thing!


37 Kate November 19, 2009 at 11:15 pm

I got an 83%….now I know what not to do in case of a bee sting ;-) Thanks for posting this quiz!


38 Betty November 20, 2009 at 6:00 pm

ah well I was taught to run cold water over a burn. Still suspect its best to run water asap rather then trying to decide if its cool or cold. This is one of those areas where we all need to know more than we think we do. Thanks for the quiz experience – stepped thru the second quiz also


39 Cindi November 26, 2009 at 12:28 am

Very interesting! I found the most interesting questions to be “what not to do!” I scored a
67%, but I thought I should get a higher score!
Learning never stops…..Many thanks, Cindi


40 The Crazy Mom November 27, 2009 at 12:04 pm

I got 5/6. Not bad. Got the bee sting one wrong.


41 john pratt November 27, 2009 at 8:35 pm

i enjoyed the quizzes. i think i missed 2 questions out of the 3 quizzes but i know the correct answers and what to do now. thanks and have a blessed day.


42 Kate November 28, 2009 at 12:27 am

Did worse on the second quiz….seems like I really need to review first aid….


43 mel1959 November 28, 2009 at 8:58 am

I learn some stuff that I never knew. I learn something new every day.


44 melody saporito November 28, 2009 at 9:01 am

I learned about something new every day.


45 Shawana November 29, 2009 at 4:56 pm

I got one wrong on the first one and 2 wrong on the second one. I need to re-read my book.


46 Shawnda November 29, 2009 at 5:15 pm

I got 100% but I have to say it is easier to think when there is not an emergency versus thinking during an emergency. My mother in law went into cardiac arrest at our home last month. My hubby and I both know CPR but needed 911 to guide us as all that training went right out the window in the heat of the moment. These cards are a GREAT idea.


47 Kelly November 29, 2009 at 8:34 pm

Great quiz. I’m trustworthy in am emergency!!


48 Kaci Traywick November 30, 2009 at 5:50 pm

I got 100% but with a special needs child and I was an EMT for over 10 years, I was hoping I wasn’t going to embarass myself. LOL

Thanks for the quiz. It was a nice little refresher.


49 Patti Bright December 3, 2009 at 6:41 am

I got a 67 % thought I was gonna do better :)


50 Mami2Mommy December 3, 2009 at 9:27 am

Thank you for this quiz! I think my sisters will be receiving a few first aid kits in their stockings this year. It is so important to be prepared. Thank you for bringing attention to this.
Happy Holiday. :)


51 Adele December 3, 2009 at 9:46 am

67%, ugg. And one of my wrong answers I should have gotten right. Help I need this kit.


52 Tami E December 3, 2009 at 10:01 am

67% – better than I expected. Thanks for the opportunity. This kit sounds great.


53 madly59 December 3, 2009 at 10:30 am

I got 100% Being an ER Nurse I am proud to say I passed! LOL .. WOuld love to have this kit for my car and home! Thanks, @madly59 ONLYJOY1959@YAHOO.COM


54 suburbangranola December 3, 2009 at 10:39 am

I only missed 1 but it said 0 %…hmmm
I have 5 kids and this is a great idea!!


55 Letessha December 3, 2009 at 11:16 am

I looked at the answers and see that I have 1 wrong answer.Maybe I’m a little goofy since I did not see any percentage score after taking the quiz.


56 Adriane December 3, 2009 at 12:41 pm

Well, I could have done worse.


57 Jennifer O December 3, 2009 at 12:58 pm

83% I got the bee sting question wrong!!!


58 Amy N December 3, 2009 at 8:38 pm

Got a great score on the quiz but feel that I’m not sure of my capabilites in a real situation. This is a great product.


59 Joanne Vanderheite December 4, 2009 at 12:23 pm

Ok I need it to 73%. This is awsome and great to teach the kids with too…Hope we win out here on the Farm…Thanks
