    • give two breaths
    • check for pulse
  2. preferred method of establishing airway during CPR
    head/chin lift
  3. contraindications of head/chin lift

  13. severeeeeee airway obstruction
    take action
  14. most common cause of upper airways obstruction
    tongue/soft tissue obstruction = head trauma, unconcious, postop surgery, drug overdose, pt is not alert
  15. how many back blows and chest thrust should you give to treating severe airway obstruction on a infant
    • 5
    • 5
  16. treating pt who is responsive with severe obstruction, perform
    abdominal thrust (heimlich maneuver)
  17. if pt is obese or a woman in the advanced stage of pregnancy, perform ____ thrusts instead of abdominal thrust
  18. if pt becomes UNRESPONSIVE during treatment of severe airways obstruction, what 3 steps should u do
    • open airway, remove any visible objects
    • begin cpr
    • call 911
  19. call 911 after ___ cycles of CPR
  20. hypotension tx
    • fluid challenge
    • dopamine
    • dobutamine
  21. bradycardia tx
    • atropine
    • epi
    • external pacemaker
  22. pvc tx
    o2 w/ lidocaine

    defib at 360
  24. if defib is unsuccessful, start
    • cpr
    • epi

  26. being cardiovert with ___ joules
  27. cardiovertion is used only for which non-lethal dysrhythmias
    • a-fib
    • a-flutter
    • v-tach w/ PULSE
  28. what should you give prior to cardioversion?
  29. defibrillation is used when emergency ___ cardiac dysrhythimias are present
  30. defib is used only for which lethal dysrhythmias
    • pulseless v-tach
    • v-fib
  31. make sure synchoronizing is ___ when doing defib
  32. being defib at ____ joules
  33. computerized device that is attached to a pulseless victim with adhesive pads
    Automated external defib AED
  34. use AED only when a victim has these clinical findings
    • no resp
    • no breathing
    • no pulse
  35. if resuscitation bag fills rapidly and collapses easily on MINIMAL PRESSURE then should check the
    inlet valve
  36. if resuscitation bag becomes difficult to compress and pt compliance is normal, then the pt valve may be
    stuck open or closed
  37. trachea deviated to oppisite side, hyperresonant percussion note and decreased breath sounds on the affected side
