Question 7 of 10

You have been called to a home where a 1-year-old girl is in respiratory distress, possible apnea. The caregiver called 911 after finding the girl on the floor in front of the TV. She does not know if the child is breathing or not. Which of the following choices below contains the most accurate facts related to this call?
  Children have a large tongue that takes up more of the oropharynx and can cause an airway obstruction. Proper administration of CPR should include about an inch of padding under the child's shoulders.
  Children may have anterior displacement of the tongue which can cause an airway obstruction. CPR should include delicate compressions to avoid rib fractures.
  Children have ridged tracheal cartilage and a short epiglottis that can easily block the airway. During CPR the neck should be slightly hyperextended to account for this difference.
  Children have smaller airways that are often blocked by toys and rarely occluded with mucus or swelling. If you suspect a foreign body airway obstruction, try to visually locate the object and remove it if possible.
