There is visible damage to the dashboard on the passenger's side of the vehicle. In addition to fractures or dislocations of the knees, you should be MOST suspicious for:posterior hip dislocation.

Your assessment reveals obvious deformity to the midshaft clavicle. After assessing distal pulse, sensory, and motor functions, you should:immobilize the injury with a sling and swathe.
The primary purpose for splinting a musculoskeletal injury is to:prevent further injury.
The MOST commonly fractured bone(s) in the body is the:clavicle.
In which of the following situations should the EMT splint an injured limb in the position of deformity?if resistance is encountered or the patient experiences severe pain
Which of the following scenarios is an example of a direct injury?A passenger fractures her patella after it strikes the dashboard.
When assessing a patient with a possible fracture of the leg, the EMT shouldcompare it to the uninjured leg.
During your rapid secondary assessment of a 19-year-old female with multiple trauma, you note bilateral humeral deformities and a deformity to the left midshaft femur. Her skin is diaphoretic and her pulse is rapid and weak. Your partner has appropriately managed her airway and is maintaining manual stabilization of her head. The MOST appropriate treatment for this patient includes:immobilizing her to a backboard and rapidly transporting.

Which of the following statements regarding striated muscle is correct?It forms the major muscle mass of the body and usually crosses at least one joint.
Which of the following musculoskeletal injuries would MOST likely result in deformity?displaced fracture

The PASG is absolutely contraindicated in patients who have:pulmonary edema.
A 76-year-old male experienced sudden pain to his left thigh when he was standing in line at the grocery store. Your assessment reveals ecchymosis and deformity to the distal aspect of his left femur, just above the knee. Distal circulation and sensory and motor functions are intact. The MOST appropriate method of splinting this injury involves:applying padded board splints to both sides of the leg.
The disruption of a joint in which the bone ends are no longer in contact is called a:dislocation.
The act of pulling on a body structure in the direction of its normal alignment is called:traction.
The MOST common and significant complication associated with fractures or dislocations of the knee is:ligament and cartilage damage.
A 17-year-old football player collided with another player and has pain to his left clavicular area. He is holding his arm against his chest and refuses to move it. Your assessment reveals obvious deformity to the midshaft clavicle. After assessing distal pulse, sensory, and motor functions, you shouldimmobilize the injury with a sling and swathe.
The PASG is absolutely contraindicated in patients who have:pulmonary edema.
The MOST reliable indicator of an underlying fracture is:point tenderness.
A 54-year-old male accidentally shot himself in the leg while cleaning his gun. Your assessment reveals a small entrance wound to the medial aspect of his right leg. The exit wound is on the opposite side of the leg and is actively bleeding. The patient complains of numbness and tingling in his right foot. You should:control the bleeding and cover the wound with a sterile dressing.
When splinting a possible fracture of the foot, it is MOST important for the EMT to:leave the toes exposed.

What type of muscle contracts and relaxes to control the movement of the contents within its structures?smooth
Deformity caused by a fracture would MOST likely be masked by:swelling.
A 21-year-old male was thrown over the handlebars of his motorcycle when he rear- ended a car that was stopped at a red light. He was wearing a helmet, which he removed prior to your arrival. He is conscious, but restless, and has closed deformities to both of his femurs. His skin is pale, his heart rate is rapid and weak, and his respirations are rapid and shallow. In addition to applying high-flow oxygen and protecting his spine, you should:bind his legs together on the backboard, keep him warm, and transport without delay.
Traction splints are used primarily to immobilize and secure fractures of the:femur.
A supracondylar or intercondylar fracture is also known as a fracture of the:distal humerus.
A subluxation occurs whena joint is incompletely dislocated.
The pectoral girdle consists of the.scapulae and clavicles.
During your assessment of a 29-year-old female with significant deformity to her left elbow, you are unable to palpate a radial pulse. Your transport time to the hospital is approximately 40 minutes. You should:apply gentle manual traction in line with the limb and reassess for a pulse.
When caring for a patient with a possible fracture of the scapula, the EMT should:carefully assess the patient for breathing problems.
During your rapid secondary assessment of a 30-year-old male who fell 25, you note crepitus when palpating his pelvis. Your partner advises you that the patient's blood pressure is 80/50 mm Hg and his heart rate is 120 beats/min and weak. After completing your assessment, you should:stabilize the pelvis with a pelvic binder and protect the spine.

The musculoskeletal system refers to the:bones and voluntary muscles of the body.
Assessing a person's neurovascular status following a musculoskeletal injury includes all of the following, EXCEPT:evaluating proximal pulses.
If a dislocated shoulder has spontaneously reduced before your arrival, the only way to confirm the injury is by noting:the patient history.
A fracture is MOST accurately defined as a(nbreak in the continuity of the bone.
In general, musculoskeletal injuries should be splinted before moving the patient unless:the patient is clinically unstable.
You receive a call to a local gymnasium for a basketball player with a dislocated shoulder. Upon arrival, you find the patient, a 17-year-old male, sitting on the ground.
