17.ID: 8482500779A nurse is having dinner at a restaurant when a man sitting at the next table collapses and falls to the floor. The nurse yells for help and quickly assesses the client, noting that the client is not breathing and does not have a pulse. The nurse initiates cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) immediately, and the restaurant manager rushes to the scene with an automatic external defibrillator (AED). What should the nurse do next? Use the AED CorrectStop the resuscitation effortsPerform CPR until emergency medical services arrivesCheck for a pulse for 30 seconds before continuing CPR°Rationale:Basic components of CPR include immediate recognition of the sudden cardiac arrest (unresponsiveness and absence of normal breathing) and activation of the emergency response system, early CPR, and rapid defibrillation with the use of an AED.°°Test-Taking Strategy: Use the process of elimination. Eliminate the options that are comparable or alike in that they indicate that the resuscitation efforts should be terminated. To select from the remaining options it is necessary to know the components of CPR.
