I think this isn't the best format for information like this! You remember the wrong responses you gave as much as the right ones! Maybe it highlights how little we know, but if you're going to do it, maybe an easy to read quickie masterclass would have been a better idea. However, thank you for highlighting how little I know! I need to look into this.

When our daugher was doing her 'breath holding spells' our doctor told us to wait around 5 minutes before we called 911. I know it's not choking on something but she isn't breathing either. He gave us an emergency drug to pull her out of it, if it lasts longer than five minutes. I can never wait the 5 minutes though. I always call the doctor, it's scary! Needless to say though, I got the last one wrong.

In theory, yes. But I've never had to apply it to reality, which is where it's important.
