While eating, a nursing assistant sees a resident that starts to grab at his throat. The best course of action for the nursing assistant to take is:

A Talk to the patient and ask if they’re choking

It is significant to ask the resident if they are choking. They may not be able to answer and instead just nod their head (as they likely will not be able to talk). The nursing aid will need to have them stand up in order to carry out the Heimlich if they are choking. Answers A and D are not correct and answer B may force the object further down into their mouth.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
