- The types and order (in order from inside-out) of clothing layers recommended for cold weather exercise are:
- hot layer, cold layer, wet layer.
- wicking layer, insulating layer, shell layer.
- insulating layer, wicking layer, shell layer.
- barrier layer, wicking layer, fill layer.
- Techniques for keeping hands warm during cold weather exercise include:
- maintaining adequate body core temperature.
- using a layered approach to hand coverings in extreme cold.
- cycling hand coverings on and off to prevent perspiration.
- All of the above
- Which of the following signs of hypothermia is potentially most dangerous for the victim?
- Impaired judgment and apathy
- Decreased coordination
- First aid treatment for hypothermia victims includes each of the following except:
- immerse in a bath of at least 43°C or 110°F.
- move to a warm, dry place.
- remove all wet clothing.
- cover with warm dry blankets or coats.
- First aid treatment for frostbite injury includes each of the following except:
- remove wet and damp clothing.
- promptly remove frozen clothing from frozen skin.
- elevate the injured part.
- warm the injured part with lukewarm water (40°C to 42°C or 104°F to 107°F).
- Frostbitten skin should be warmed and thawed immediately even if reexposure to cold or frostbite reinjury is likely.
- Processes in the body that can produce significant heat in the cold include each of the following except:
- goose bumps.
- basal energy expenditure.
- muscle activity.
- Techniques for keeping feet warm in the cold include each of the following except:
- layered socks.
- tight-fitting footwear.
- disposable chemical heat packs inside the footwear.

by Paul Sorace, M.S., RCEP, CSCS; James R. Churilla, Ph.D., MPH, RCEP, CSCS; and Peter Magyari, Ph.D., HFS, CSCS
- Which of the following is considered prehypertension?
- 140/90 mmHg
- 110/76 mmHg
- 150/80 mmHg
- 130/70 mmHg
- The prevalence of hypertension in the U.S. adult population is estimated to be
- Which of the following medications can cause heat intolerance?
- Calcium channel blockers
- Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
- ACE receptor blockers
- It has been shown that regular dynamic resistance training can lower resting blood pressure (systolic and diastolic) by approximately:
- 2 mmHg.
- 3 mmHg.
- 5 mmHg.
- 6 mmHg.
- The blood pressure response during dynamic resistance training is:
- a volume load.
- a pressure load.
- both a volume and a pressure load.
- none of the above
- Persons with hypertension should perform resistance training
- with only one set per exercise.
- with a subjective effort between 13 and 15 on Category Scale.
- with a subjective effort between 5 and 7 on the Category-Ratio Scale.
- in a submaximal manner.
- To help avoid excessive increases in blood pressure during resistance training, it is recommended to _____ during the concentric phase of the repetition.
- perform the Valsalva maneuver
- exhale initially, then perform the Valsalva maneuver
- The recommended repetition range for persons with hypertension is:
- 4 to 6
- 8 to 10
- 12 to 15
- none of the above
